I do exercise dvd's such as Jade's Shape Challenge, and Taebo. But i dont know how much you burn during these dvd's. So i don't ever add them into my diary. As it doesnt let you, without putting the 'calories burned'. Where am i supposed to find out the calories burned?

You can pick something similar, such as calisthenics, conditioning exercise, or circuit training (depending on the intensity). You can enter a custom exercise and name it whatever you are doing DVD and estimate the calories. Or you can use the custom entry and use a heart rate monitor during exercise to get a more accurate number for calories burned.

Getting the impression you want to know "how many calories you burn". I have a heart rate watch "Polar", which keeps time you exercise, heart rate and calories burned. Amazon sells them for a decent price. I've also seen them in Target.

Is is similar to dancing? As above, I would try to calculate it using similar movements that are on the list.
