Calories

Recommended Posts

I burned 175.7 calories today and its my first day but some people told me that if you wanted to lose weight you have to burn more than 500 calories is that true? Does that mean i have to do more workouts besides this one? Please let me know

1. To lose weight you have to burn more calories than you get with food.

1. The calories count is never precise, it is always rough estimation.

3. Unfortunately (for me :D ) exercise alone is not enough. The reasonable diet should be added.

 

I have no idea how the app calculate the calories. 175 is kind of low. With my weight running 30min with 3.5% incline is about 600 calories This is what my treadmill is showing and it is one good cheeseburger :lol:.

500 calorie deficit is based on a lot of assumption, your body weight, how active you are etc. you are expected  to eat 250 calorie less and burn 250 calories so as to get a 500 calorie deficit. Again these are all not accurate. if you eat healthy and exercise regularly, making it more of a life style change you will definitely see a difference

Thankyou so much. I was feeling so bad when I saw 175 only lol and i really wanna know the exact calories that im burning... so i should read the calories on the treadmill instead?

I read that most treadmills give 10-20% error. Be sure that you enter your weight (your real weight ;) ) in the treadmill.

I would not compare calories from different devices. Stick with one for rough estimates.
