I don't know how accurate SP's tracker for the elliptical is since it's just a generic entry. There's no accounting for intensity or speed or anything like there is for the treadmill. I believe it gives you the same number regardless of if you went at a slow, meandering pace or a high intensity, heart-pumping pace. I'm not sure what pace it's set for. If you went all out, I might go a head and leave it, otherwise, I might subtract a few calories when calculating my deficit, just to stay on the "safe" side of things. I wouldn't want to regularly overestimate for a lot.
