I'm going tomorrow to buy a Mio Watch heart rate monitor, which uses info like my resting heart rate, age, weight, etc to determine how many calories I'm burning when I'm exercising.
I've been zig zagging my daily calories consumed with success so far. On days I don't exercise intensely, I'm satisfied, but sometimes after a hard workout I'm just famished, but I'm scared to eat much beyond my set daily calories because I don't want to overeat.
I guess I don't really understand the relation between the calories burned during exercise and how/when/if that should be taken into account to make adjustments to how many calories I'm consuming each day. I hope that question makes sense. I feel really dumb
I just can't seem to wrap my brain around the concept for some reason.
Can anyone give me the "For Dummies" explanation of how it all works together? Thanks!
