A comment about calories burned and Scuba. I've been a fulltime instructor for 14 years and I think beginners burn WAY more caloires than experienced divers who can maintain neutral bouyancy. I think it also depends on how fast you go. I've been diving more this month, about 6 to 8 dives more per week than usual and my cal counter tells me that I burn about 300 cals per 45 min dive, so I started eating more last week since I was hungrier. I've gained 4 pounds in 2 weeks since I increased my caloires, which means I'm not burning those caloires diving. I've also been diving as a dive guide doing boat dives for Japanese divers, and they like to go really really slow so I'm probably only burning the same amount of calories as a slow walk in the park.
If you don't dive that often you probably do burn that much. I remember losing weight when I first became a full time instructor and started doing up to 6 dives a day.
Any way, I don't count my Scuba calories since I seem to gain weight if I only Scuba dive. But I do notice that when I don't dive for awhile I have a tendency to gain weight. I've been doing glute squeezes during my dives..
