    calories used


    Whats a good way to figure calories used during my workouts?

    The reason I ask is daily I run on a caloric deficit so I use my post workout shake to replenish the calories I burn during my workout. i dont want to dip to deep into my calories but also don't want to much so I gain my weight back. normally my shake is 1 scoop iosology, 3\4 cup egg whites, 1 cup almond milk some cinnamon

    Im just trying to figure out if that is enough or even the right approach.

    IMO, the best method is to use a heart rate monitor. Most now contain calorie calculators. If you don't have the funds for one then stop and record your heart rate via taking pulse and calculate approx calories burned using your height and weight and age.

    I'd say that is a good method. This really is not an exact science. Look up TheSolution's threads as he gives great advice and references plenty to read about nutrition and weight loss.
