Exercise! - Question re figuring calories burned

06-25-2007, 12:25 PM

I was looking for a little input on this question...what do you consider most reliable? (1) The estimates given on sites like fitday and mydailyplate (which take into acct current weight); (2) the calories burned total on a heart rate monitor like Polar; (3) the calories burned total from cardio machines (I think these are generally poor)

FYI, the Polar amounts for me are sometimes higher (when I exercise outside in warm weather), and sometimes lower (than the cardio machine estimates)
