    Our elliptical trainer...it measures carbs not me :dunno: I just hop on and vary the resistance and I've worked up to about 600 cals...usually its right around 630 or so that I burn each day. I just slowly up it as it gets easier to do as much as I can in a total of 40 mins.

    Walking and running burn the same amount of carbs (over the same distance). Running will just burn them faster.

    they are more accurate when you enter your weight like the ones at my gym right?

    at home 500 calories takes 45 min
    at the gym with my weight its like 35 min

    They're not accurate at all, basically. Weight entered or no weight entered.

    Trust me, you did not burn 600 calories in 38 minutes :o unless you somehow worked as hard as somebody who can run 6 miles in 38 minutes, which would be incredibly hard to do.

    Not putting you down at all, just sayin'. As a general rule of thumb, 1 mile running is ~100 calories depending on your weight and speed. If you're doing cardio on an elliptical/bike, just work hard, get up a good sweat, and don't worry about trying to figure up your caloric expenditure.

    :werd: based on what I've read I'm actually burning more than 600. But it at least gives me some form of measurement.

    Well I use it as a motivater. Like I said as it gets easy to do x number of calories in my 40 minute time frame I up it 50 or 75 at a time (based on what the machine says). I started out at 300 calories in 26 minutes. Decided that wasn't enough and new that my goal would be 300 in under 20 minutes. Now I consistantly do that twice a day.

    As some said it may not be very accurate.

    However, I do go relatively fast at least compared with others I know that do elliptical trainers and I tend to keep the resistance higher.

    One of these days I'll go to the trainer center and see what I'm actually burning in my workout.

    I've been skinny my whole life, but I have leaned up a bit the last few months which is good. I was cut like crazy in high school but full time job + full time school + social life = not much time to workout. I got out of shape but still was pretty slim. Now I'm starting to feel like I'm getting back into reasonable shape in terms of how I feel, how quickly I get out of breath etc. And I've lost some minor amounts of fat that basically help me look cut again.

    The downside is it gets progressively harder to stack on another 50 calories. I bet I start to hit a wall around 650 maybe I can squeek out 700, but then I bet it starts to level off somewhere around 800ish to 850.
