How do I edit my Energy Target?

ControlMyWeight uses the Mifflin-St Jeor equation to calculate and determine individual energy targets. It also uses somewhat higher calories for different levels of physical activity - based on WHO figures. This affects calories in (food you consume) and calories out (exercise and activities), and results in more conservative, higher energy targets. You are encouraged to adjust your energy targets if you find the levels to be too high or too low.

To edit your Energy Targets:

  • Go to Settings > Your Targets > Energy
  • Slide the Use Recommendation button to the left
  • Edit the Lower and Upper Target fields as desired. In the ControlMyWeight iOS app, tap each field to make edits. Tap elsewhere on the screen to save your changes.
