Ok, so I ran 6 miles on the tredmile today at 6MPH, 60 minutes. The machine asked for me weight to more accuratly count calories (185 lbs).. Supposedly I burned roughly 850 calories in that hour, but I dont know how accurate that is.. Im trying to count calories IN .vs. OUT, so can I rely on this number?

Question #2: How do you guys measure your BF? I hear those machines you hold up to your chest dont work very well.. So, do you usethe calipers? are there any other good methods to measure BF, that is practical for every day use?
