A new term has been thrown around our department at work
" Industral Athlete "
So I connected my polar HRM c200cad to see what my avg kcal burn is.
has any one else left their HRM connected to see what daily Kcal burn is for your day.
If so post it up along with your equipment and what type of work your in.
so far 10hrs 23min 2039 kcal
started last night at 9pm will reset at 9pm tonight.

My resting metabolic rate is 2470. Based on weight gain/loss over the last 3 months (using a power meter to gauge calorie expenditure riding), my non-cycling burn for 24 hrs is around 2800 calories per day (just under 400 more than RMR).
I dunno, I did 50 miles on Saturday but ate an Oyster Po' Boy. :D That's 2500 kcal plus 2000 to stay alive. What did that Po' Boy cost me? :D $10 and 2000 kcal?
Man do I love to eat.

For me, about 2400 Calories is maintenance. I aim for about 2000/day to lose some excess weight. :)

Now that June is over, I'll post some stats for me:
Starting Weight (avg last 4 days of May): 169
Ending Weight (avg last 4 days of the month): 168
(excess calories burned: 3500ish)
Average daily consumption: 4159 kcal
Average daily output (riding): 1690 kcal
Average daily burn rate: 4159-1690 = 2469 + 3500/30 = 2585 kcal per day.
My RMR was measured as 2470, so I can make a reasonable assumption and say I burn roughly an extra 116 kcal per day doing whatever it is that I do. (I have a pretty sedentary office type job).
my RMR is around 2200'ish. i most days i am very active. i ride and run days i take in at least 3000 calories. after dropping 70 lbs in 2006 i have been holding steady in the 170 to 175 lbs range. cool idea to wear the polar all day. what did you HR max out at? later.
