Confused about Calorie counts

Hey thereā€¦ I'm confused about Net Calories vs. Calories Left... do I want negative net calories at the end of the day or a lot of "Calories Left". I understand what Net Calories are but why are there so many "left" then..?

      Hi Portie, I think I have to answer to your question... "net calories" are the total amount of calories you have eaten minus the calories you have burned. The "Left" calories are what you have until you meet your calorie goal minus the amount of calories you have burned. The "total calories" are just what you have eaten, so if you are being strict with what you are eating than you want to look at the total calories and ignore the "net calories"
