Kas, we all had to learn ourselves, so don't worry about asking questions. For food and drink challenges, there is no way of automatically logging, what you have to do is manually update each challenge on a daily or weekly basis. You will see a lot of upda...

Hey guys, are you using any calorie burning calculator?

Question • 1 answer

Newest answer

No, way too inaccurate.  It depends not only on you age, weight but also fitness level and even then individual days can be different due to exhaution, temperature etc.  The only accruate way is a watch and heart rate monitor.

Giovanni, your training will appear on some / many of the challenges, but only those that have automatic calculation will add to the totals. Otherwise, it's taking the previous persons last total and manually adding your activity as Roomi describes.

Constant problems with calf muscles - any advice?

Question • 7 answers

For a few years, I've been having trouble getting into running because almost every time I try, I end up pulling my calf muscles, sometimes to the point that walking will be problematic for a couple of days. I'm beyond fed up with it. Stretching before, dur...
