    I guys I've just started calorie counting and I'm having trouble working out my exercise calories, the gym machines say one thing MFP says another and if I use my average HR to calculate it I get a different number again :S
    I found a HRM calculator online that works out calories from your weight, sex, and duration of exercise using your av HR. I thought this would be the most accurate way but I don't want to calculate too much and overeat :S
    Any thoughts would be appreciated thanks

    I would just take the lowest figure u get and use that, then ur not risking eating calories u have not earned and even if u do burn a few extra its a bonus!

    Good luck x

    Thanks for the reply Kim, the figures are very different like 500+ and 200 and I'm already on low calories so don't want to wreck my metabolism etc by going too low.
    I think it makes more sense that it is over the 200kcal that the machine says as I'm uber unfit and my heart rate was through the roof the whole time MFP agrees more with the higher value HRM for bike and more with the lower machine value for treadmill :S

    How exciting!!!! I'm getting married on the 21st Nov :D
    Honestly I worked my little fat arse off today and had my heart rate at over 175 for over an hour went purple within about 5 mins and kept it up, thought I might puke a lot!!!
    Trying to look online to see which is more accurate, I think the calculator I found takes into account sex height weight and HR so I hope should be accurate :S
