It seems to me that the exercise calculator on here is off from what I have seen on other sights. I don't really go by this but I don't feel i am burning near the calories it shows on here. Any comments on this? Again, I don't really use this as much of a tool but it's here and I know people look at it.

It's not so accurate that I would base my diet off of it, but it helps as a general guide.

Benitez, I think you're right. Any idea by what % it is off? Is there another site that you think is more accurate?

need to drop weight fast.
Exercise, develop your body. Eat healthy nutritious foods, not junk. Don't try to lose weight fast or be too skinny for your build. Aim for healthy and toned.
