The aim is to get 3 green ticks. This means that you have eaten the correct amount for food, had enough exercise for the day and drink enough fluids.
On the 'Today' Screen, 'Getting Started' #1 is 'Food Calories, Exercise Calories and Overall Calories'.
This section does give you an explanation of the basic idea.
You are given a value of Food Calories for the day to eat and a value of Exercise Calories to burn.
When you have done your Exercise for the day, but not an excessive amount over, you will get your 1st Green tick.
Doing excess exercise actually loses your green tick, as you may not have eaten enough food to make up for the extra calories burnt.
The Food Calories less the Exercise Calories total your Overall Calories, if both are close enough to their correct amounts, and your get your 2nd green tick
Having drank your 2lts of fluid (minimum of 1.75lt actually),
not just water, will give you your 3rd Green Tick
Which is the most important tick?
It is wise to aim for all four green ticks. Not eating the right amount of calories or not exercising will only make your weight loss journey harder. Remember to motivate yourself to achieve the best you can.
However, if you stick to your daily food calories but you complete extra exercise, you may end up with a red exclamation mark against your overall calories.
The most important green tick to achieve is the overall calories tick. Although you should aim for four ticks, if you are exercising a lot you may need to eat some additional food to replace some of the extra calories you have expended. The green overall calories tick means you have correctly balanced out your intake and output for the day.
