How is my daily calorie goal calculated?
Once you set your 3-month target weight, the FULLFILL app will automatically calculate a daily calorie goal for you based on your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and your desired rate of weight loss.
How do I set my target weight?
To set your target weight, follow these steps:
1. Tap on the "Tracker" tab found on the bottom navigation bar of the FULLFILL app.
2. Tap on the "Weight" tracker tile.
3. Scroll down and tap on the "Edit" button on the Target Weight tile.
4. Adjust your target weight by sliding your finger left or right over the slider scale.
- The green shaded range indicates what is considered a reasonably achievable target for 3 months from today.
- The app will also show you what is possible for 6-month and 12-month results (if you were to continue losing at the rate you indicated for your 3-month goal).
- Please note that the app is designed so that it will not allow you to set a weight goal that is so low that it would be considered unhealthy (the lowest goal it will calculate represents a 19.9 BMI).
5. Once you've settled on your desired 3-month goal, scroll down and tap on the "Update" button.
6. Then, you can check out the newly calculated suggested calorie goal based on the new target weight you set.
- Your calorie target can be seen on the Tracking Dashboard and Nutrition Tracker pages, as well as on the "Add Meal" tile at the bottom of your Home page.
Can I manually override my calorie goal in the app?
While you can recalculate your calorie goal by changing your 3-month target weight, there is no way to manually set your calorie goal to a number you enter manually at this time. This is a functionality we hope to add at some point in the future as we continuously work to improve our app and member experience.
Please note that calorie goal calculations in the FULLFILL app are purposely designed to never go below 1200 calories/day for women or 1500 calories/day for men (or those who did not indicate their biological sex during registration). This is because consuming fewer calories than these recommended minimums could be dangerous or have negative effects on your health.
