Did my daily Sunday commute today. I’m still confused about how much I should be eating when I do this. I track calories burned with my Polar heart rate monitor, and I’ve been told that’s supposed to be pretty accurate. I also use Map My Ride to track my other riding data, like speed, times, etc. Then I keep as close to a calorie record as possible in the Map My Ride system. I also enter the kcals burned straight from my heart rate monitor. According to this I should have 3000 calories remaining for the day, to make a 2200 calorie day. My daily goal is less than that, so lets say I have 2000 calories left… BUT THAT DOESN’T SEEM RIGHT TO ME! Like according to this I should be able to eat a full pizza and still lose weight…I know that can’t be true right?! I’m going to try and eat light all the same, but if someone can clarify how I should handle this that would be great.
And yes I take pictures with my phone while I ride…what of it?!
