during school i walk about 6flight of stairs up about 3-4x daily and back down...........I was wondering how many calories I Burn about each time i walk those 6flights of stairs..The reason i ask is because I am cutting and i dont do CARDIO(THREADMILL,or anything else) but the stair walking does work it,when i reach the 6th floor i am breathing somewhat heavy,some days out of breath...Knowing how many cals i burned from the stairs i can increase carbs somewhat so i wont feel wornout........THX

you could get a pedometer. i jsut bought one, and it counts the steps you take, and gives you a calorie burning estimate based ont he data you give it. not very scientific. don't know how accurate it is....but it would give oyu a ballpark figure.
