5"1 20yo 20lb F. Ran very fast (screen broken don't know exact speed) for 45min on an old kind of elliptical difficulty 6/8. How many calories burned?

I am going to: Presume that you weigh 200 lbs, not 20! But a rough guide is that you burn 2.16 calories per pound in 30 minutes. Perhaps at the intensity you describe, a little bit more. So in 45 minutes at high intensity you may have burned close to 600+ calories. BUT, this does not sound like a very sensible and safe plan. The duration is good, but try some intervals and a target heart rate ~140 beats/minute. ...Read more

How many extra calories does the Atkins diet burn? I know that fat is burned instead of carbs on the Atkins diet, but how does that change the amount of calories burned?
