So I add the calories from exercise, and things have been going well for many months. I was thinking about this scenario today:
Let's say I burn 250 calories in half an hour on the exercise bike. And say my TDEE is around 2200 calories, which is about 90 per hour on average, to make it easy let's call that 100 per waking hour which is 50 per half hour.
Therefore I may have done 250 calories on the bike, but isn't that just 200 more than watching Netflix? Why then do we add the full 250 exercise estimate to get a new daily goal, instead of the 200 delta?
