I checked your report, and I think it just looks a little funny because you don't have a lot of data points yet. Once you do, that report should become more useful.

When you've got a negative number, that means you burned more calories than you consumed for the day. Typically you want that differential to bea negative number of 500-1000 calories per day, which would result in 1-2 pounds of weight loss per week. Of course, the math works out one way and our bodies don't always cooperate, but that's how it should be in an ideal situation.

Does that help?

All my differentials are negative numbers. Is that good? I noticed the "over time" function doesn't work when you change the dates, so can I just add up all the numbers from the daily numbers and come up with the differential for the past number of days?
