I walk about 14,000-20,000 steps a day and MFP was showing this as about 700 kcal. Then it suddenly changed to about 130 kcal. What's going on?!

By the way, the step count is automated via my iphone.

No idea but you shouldn't be eating those calories anyways if you're trying to lose weight. I only figured that out after quite a few months thinking wow! I can eat an extra 500 cals. grin

It was probably an issue with the app. Have you tried reloading the app by clearing your history (if using an iPhone double tap and swipe away)

This happens to my account too. Also it doesn't add cals at all sometimes. Like it says 6354 steps and no cals. Very irritating.

My walking calories have dropped through the floor but I put that down to my change from Jawbone to Fitbit. I'd guess that they are about half of what they were a couple of weeks ago. They've been consistent from May, it's just in the last couple of weeks that they've tanked.
