Macros increased on app?

Hi all - weird question. Why did my macros increase after I lost 11 pounds in the app? I’m confused by this; do I have a setting wrong? Everything increased - calories, fats, everything. Why did that happen?

    In the settings section, under the MACROS tab, do you have Smart Macros turned on?   Did you change your calories deficit?  Sometimes just touching the screen at the wrong point will make an unintended change.

  • There was a little box, under the calories on that same page, that said something about calories needing to be recalculated. Macros had been turned on ...I was able to recalculate so they’re somewhat back to where they were. It was just weird that everything increased...

    I don't use Smart Macros, so I can't speak to how they operate, but I would expect them to recalculate your daily macros every time your weight changes.  Unless you hit your weight goal, I wouldn't expect them to increase your daily macros.  Every time I recalculate my macros they go down unless I change my calorie deficit to zero on the slider.  Then they went up.  A bunch!  Sounds like you may have turned Smart Macros off for now and are back on track.  Good news.
