Well I lost 4 lbs. this week so if you lose a pound for every 3,500 calorie deficit then this formula has been pretty much right on the mark for me according to my deficits.

I hope this encourages you.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

I have been searching for a good formula for calories burned and this is the one I found online and have been using in case someone else wants to use it I thought I would share.
I think it may be on the high end a little bit but I know for a fact that me walking for an hour burns more than 180 calories which is what my cheap pedometer said.
I think finding a formula that includes Heart Rate is essential. Anyway here is the one I use.

(HR x 0.4472) - (weight x .05741) + (age x .074 - 20.4022)
x (Time /4.184)= calories burned
