    Very good question. I think it is more important to find out how I perceive the actual energy used whilst exercising. Just about every single gym machine shows different results - with pre - programmed information or without. I am now with MFP for over 430 days and on average try my best with some sort of exercise for about 10 hours a week. After exercise my body tells me by now that I have either tried my best (I feel somewhat tired), have totally overdone it (muscles are screaming for pain) or have just sat around watching the young ladies in the park - in this case my darling wife will have a word or two with me...resulting in my ears ringing!

    Google METS for more on how MFP calorie estimates are made.
