Ever since I started cycling on my new bike, I seem to not lose any weight. I must be building muscle or something. Today I went ahead and dropped a visit to a dietitian so that she can provide me with an eating plan. I told her I ride 5-6 times a week for about 1 hour. I hope she gets the counting right.
Well, my last workout went like this:
Did I burn anything close to 1600 calories? I've set the HRM right (it's a Sigma Onyx Classic with a chestband), but is it counting right? I weigh 260 lbs.

What do you guys think? How should I estimate my calorie expenditure during my workout?
