I have a fitbit. Which is a little device that tells you how many steps you take and gives an estimate on how many calories you burn based on height, weight, age, and activity level. It has a sensor like the Wii to monitor what your body does throughout the day.
And that number, 2545, is the number of calories it said I burned yesterday. I took 15000 steps, totalled eight miles, ran for 20 minutes, walked briskly for 50 minutes, did the elliptical for 10 minutes, and weight lifted.
And if that's how many calories I burn in an average work out day for me then no wonder I couldn't lose weight or stop thinking about food when I was eating 1200 calories.
