    There is also penis and vagina in the database as well. Haven't burned many of those calories lately.


    Are you referring to food logging or calorie burning?

    That's food logging. Never mind. Why don't they have sex in the exercise database?

    Meal prepping could very well mean lassoing, taking down, tying up, killing, and butchering a wild bull - that would give you at least 10 cals a minute.

    Think about it, if you were to donate a limb, you've now gone down in weight. Therefore your TDEE is now lower. So that means that the square root of 600 is donate blood minus 340 because do you even squat bro?

    I think watching my Cowboys play, while I wring my hands, shout at the TV, jump up and down, should count as a tabata workout.

    Riding the huge tractor-like lawnmower at my boyfriend's house burns a whole lot of calories. That's one of my favorite exercises!

    I admit to wondering what the appropriate log entry would be for "puking due to excessive amounts of alcohol and cigarettes".

    There is definite exercise going on there, and you can see the calories come up.
