Dr. Wei-shin Lai answered:

Do you think I should add calories burned from sleeping in my calorie counter?

Yes

Yes, you do burn calories when you are asleep. Actually, you burn more calories sleeping than watching TV. But do check on your calorie counter to see if it already calculates for the basal metabolic rate, which is just the minimum calories burned for simply being alive.

How precise are the calorie counters on treadmills?

It estimates

Open-uri20130822-18933-1wqhy0b
depending on the model it may just make an estimate based on speed and slope fancier machines will input your weight, age, rest pulse as well and monitor your heart rate as well. which can give you a fair estimate but still far from exact

I'd recommend full body exercises but it also depends on the duration of these exercises. Swimming is a favorite of mine although I heard zumba and spinning classes also put you through an intense workout. best of luck.

Don?t understand what activities burn the most calories?

Activities that...

Open-uri20121111-14705-175y0h4
Inrease your heart rate the most. Since muscular fatigue is a limiting factor as well, the more muscles engaged in sporting activities seem less strenuous that they really are. These would include rowing a cross country skiing, an eliptical trainer, Schwinn Air Dyne, etc. But resistance activities have "hidden" burn, since your muscular growth will consume caslories after exercise.

What is the easiest way to burn fat? What exercise uses the most calories?

Aerobic exercise

Exercise
An aerobic exercise program that works on cardiovascular conditioning [ key to metabolic changes from exercise] and expends a great deal of calories will be effective with weight loss. Walking or Running are the simplest. Biking / Elliptical machines also work well. Maintaining muscle mass with weights is also very helpful.
