Re: need help... please
I always advise AGAINST counting calories burned during a workout. Why? Well 1. you don't know and 2. it doesn't really tell you much. The reason is that calories burned from exercise DURING exercise are NOT what helps you to lost weight and/or remain fit. It is the raising of the metabolism and the additional calories due to that metabolism that are burned the rest of the day that contribute to fitness and weight loss. If you walk for an hour and burn 300 calories, vs. if you run for 30 minutes and burn 500 calories, the run will boost your metabolism throughout the day much more that the 500 vs. 300 caloric expenditure would indicate in comparing the workouts. By the end of the day, you may end up buring an extra 1800 calories from the run whereby the walk may net you only 600 extra.
