application (my diet diary), i set 30days try to loss for
5kg (sedentary without included any exercise) and it

What im confusing rite now my current bmr is 2084,
And from my reading,to make my metabolisme run
as well due to make me loss some weight, i need to
take about 1700-2000cal a day. Because it say that
If i take less calory, my metabolisme will run down, it

No, there's something wrong with, either the information you entered or the way the app calculated calorie needs.  

805 calories/day is not nearly enough for an adult male. Let me go in search of someone who can help.

Hi there -

5 kg in 30 days is actually quite a bit, so that may be why your calories are so low, especially if you are sedentary. Try setting it for 60 days, and see if that adjusts it to a more reasonable calorie budget for you.

Let us know. I'll be moving this to our Suggestions forum, so we will be able to see if faster.

Thanks,

Emily

Hi, ctown1,

The best place to ask about BMR calculations is in our Weight Loss & Dieting Community.  Here's a post that explains the calculations:
