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?
