Default Is it possible?? (Calories burned walking Q)

Earlier this am, I walked the dog for 30 minutes. I just tracked that on my Daily Plate. It says I burned 264 calories?? Is that possible? Really?

I understand that at 266.5 lbs I burn more calories just hauling this carcass around vs. a 145lb person but that seems high to me! Great if it is true but seems too generous. If it is true, it makes me want to walk for 30 more minutes later today....maybe 30 more before bed? LOL

Sounds plausible to me. I was on the stationary bike for 30min and burned about the same. I wouldn't eat those calories, but exercise is exercise!

If you wanna know for sure how much you are burning get a reliable heart rate monitor where you can enter your body information and it will calculate how much you are burning based on your heart rate. I have a POLAR - they are expensive but worth it!

My Daily Plate seemed to factor that calories back into my total available. I have to think of that when I look at how many calories I have left to consume. I ate breakfast, walked and still have over 2100 to eat! I don't want to go too low as I've seen people here advocate for eating more to lose weight vs. going on an 800calorie a day diet.

Depends on how fast you walk I guess. I tend to burn about 100 calories per mile, just at varying rates of speed depending on if it is walking or running.

HRM is definitely a good idea. I use TDP and found that some of the calorie were high compared to my HRM, some were low. ETA - I also have a Polar, the F6 I think. Love it.

I very seldom ever eat back exercise calories like it says on TDP. I know that even with the HRM the numbers are inexact. I may eat a couple of hundred extra on big run days, but not all of the calories. It was hard to keep track of on TDP at first - now I just look at the total consumed, not the total available.

that seems a bit high to me, although of course it depends on how fast you were walking and if you maintained that pace for the entire 30 minutes or if you were stopping here and there for the dog to sniff or do his business.

But I personally don't eat back exercise calories anyway. I figure they are insurance in case I did miss something when I'm tracking or if I was not accurate in measuring or estimating. And of course the general benefits of toning and increasing muscle mass and therefore the amount you can eat long term.

Just put in walking (not with dog) at low pace (2 or 2.5 mph).

I use the Livestrong site also and wonder about their estimates from walking. I don't "eat" my guestimated calories burned from exercise, but it's hard to ignore the way MyPlate is set up.
