Calorie counter

Ah-haaa!! Finally back to a sensible diet and exercise and have lost 4 of the 6 lbs I gained in December. Also with the help of group ride discussions and the oh so knowledgeable Mark Lopresto I have started to eliminate a lot of "bad" foods in my house like HFCS and Hydrogenated oils. Coffee and beer stay-sorry!!

I read this on Velo News today and thought it helpful to those who want to try and calculate the calories burned and wattage without the use of a power meter.

Calorie Calculator

For me I think it overestimated power and calories, but at least it gives you a ballpark figure to work with.

Cool link! When I get home I'll have to compare it to the Polar watch & software I use.

Mark's dead on about those 'bad' foods. Sadie's been helping me to get on the right track.

Dude, speaking of bad food. I am with you Ray, I am not giving up my beer or coffee.

When are we going to the 'Cave' or Melt?
