Most of the time I don't even reach my minimum, it seems like a whole lot.

I don't normally use the extra calories. I guess I am just hoping that they will
cause additional fat to burn off :+) or at least that is my hope.

I don't always use all the calories that they say I can be good at 1200 to 1500. I haven't really gone close to the 2400 that they say I can have after exercising on my gazelle an hour a day.

keep on trucking

If I exercise longer than 30 minutes, I try to use some of the additional calories, but not all of them. If I do less than 30 minutes, I just don't bother. I'm talking about low and medium intensity activity.
I never use all of my additional calories because I think it'll help with the weight loss. But when I exercise a lot, I try to give myself some extra fuel. Like, if I burn 600 calories, I'll give myself an extra 200-300 calories to eat for the day. In quality mostly, not quantity, because I'm trying to shrink that stomach emoticon . If you burn significant calories, don't strain your body. With exercise, it gets more complicated (starvation mode). On the whole, starvation mode happens when you intake less than 1200 calories. But with exercise added, you can't exactly guess when or how your body gets in that mode, so don't push it. I say give yourself an extra snack or something but don't use all your calories. Plus, exercise causes some people to go hungry. Your body knows best. If you experience hunger, give yourself quanity but not quality (aka things like freggies, nutrient rich and filling, but calorie poor).

It is funny I would see this post today as I was just talking to my mom about this exact topic. I tend to have a hard time getting to my calorie burn goal (2500) without exercise, so most of the calories I burn with exercise go towards my daily goal in order to achieve a 1000 calorie deficit and hopefully a 2 pound loss each week. Anything I burn on top of the 2500 (I have a heart rate monitor I wear pretty much 24/7) I tend to use as extra calories burned and figure that will only lead to a higher weight loss (though I rarely burn more than an extra 100-300 calories. Though tonight I did exercise in order to eat more since I had already reached my calorie intake for the day and was still hungry LOL I think it just depends on whether you need those calories in order to get to your calorie deficit for the week or if you are wanting an extra burn for the day. If not, I say the more I can eat the happier I will be :)

Sorry for the book!

I was wondering how many of you use the calories you burn to eat more or just stay within your normal calorie range. I don't want to let starvation mode kick in from not using them but also I have been doing alot of walking and don't really need them unless it will help me ? Please any thoughts or input would be appreciated :)
