That's good ....and quite unusual.Figuring out how much energy is burned on an individual basis during exercise is pretty difficult especially when using arbitrary figures that don't account for variables such as bodyweight, speed, biomechanics or fitness level (this has an impact on compensatory behavior for the rest of the day) Difficult enough that it can become a barrier to success rather than an aid for most folk.I have a few of my class members doing that "Fast Diet" that's being touted as the latest breakthrough that turns conventional thinking on its head. Basically you have two non consecutive ultra low cals days and eat "as normal" for the rest. When I found out I gave out some loaner pedometers (one gal had a FitBit but hadn't bothered to use it) with instructions to use it for the same number of hours each day outside of exercise time......looking to measure their spontaneous movement.....and compare their steps on fast and normal days. They're keeping a log and we're checking it next week. One gal has already noticed her step count to be a lot lower on her fast days (no surprise to me given my experience)This is the best use of these devices.....forget "calories burned" use it as an accountability manager and for the heads up when you think you're "doing everything right" and you're still on a stall. Hmmmm. It seems you are over analyzing the problem. K.I.S.S.
