KALDAY, I asked this question (or at least similar) in the general messageboard. Hopefully we'll get an answer.

I was wondering the same thing. Strength training definitely burns calories, but the Fitness Tracker doesn't include those. Maybe it's just too difficult for the site to calculate (too many variables).

I'm not really stressing over it, except that the site seems to automatically adjust your diet based on calories burned, and if those aren't included maybe your caloric intake will be low.

Anyone have any insight?

Anyone know where you can see the calories burned? I can see the ones burned via cardio, but not from my strength training... also anyone have any good links to find average calories burned for doing things not listed on SP? Like playing with the kids, light housework, mopping/sweeping, etc?

Thanks in advance!
