dont worry about upsetting me over the nutritionist, she was someone my dr recommended and i only saw her once. i question her knowledge myself.
as far as how i figure calories burned zorbs13, i set my self on sedentary, because really other than my workout im not able to do a whole lot out of the water. i have one ruined knee that im not supposed to walk on much and the other is following fast from not listening to the drs and walking anyways and using it to bear most of the weight. i only add in my actual time at the gym which is all treading water or water aerobics. you would be surprised at the amount of calories treading water will burn, usually atleast double of the same time on a treadmill or eliptical.. the resistance of the water adds to the work out and i dont hurt because of the lack of stress on my knees so i go to town once i hit the water. accourding to the spark fitness im burning around 1450 every hour i spend in the water, as i dont stop for atleast 2 hrs.
i dont bother to put in any housework , shopping or walking unless i specifically go on a walk.so the 7000 - 9000 i burn is just the gym thats not including the bmr - calorie intake differential which was averaging around another 3000 - 3500 daily. so my weekly calorie burned average was around 26000 calories.
