The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Does anyone use the Activities Section in FitDay?

    I've mainly only been using the Foods section in my FitDay Account, but I've been thinking about starting to use the Activities section in FitDay. Are there any advantages to using it as to not using it?

    I use it, but not as an honest tracking of calories expended, but more so I can look back in 2, 3 or 6 months and get an idea of how fast I could do a mile, or how often I was doing cardio ect.

    I do track everything with a notebook, but sometimes being able to pop on the net and see how my weight, cals and cardio were related 6 months ago is cool.

    nope, i dont think those numbers are accurate, everything depends on how much you weight, what your BF% is etc, no one number works for all people.

    I use it, but I don't put too much into the numbers. I generally under estimate what I do so I don't eat too much later.

    I was wondering if there are any devices you can buy that will telll you how many calories you have burned.

    Also, how accurate are the treadmills in the gym in terms of how many calories you're used?
