A Balancing Act: Miles Walked and Calories ConsumedA recent post from FoXnoMad provides readers with a quick reality check on How to Accurately Calculate How Many Calories You Just Burned Sightseeing. The author provides some basic rules on how burning calories is impacted by energy exerted, weight, level of athleticism and age. Then he offers suggestions for apps and maps that will help you better estimate the distance you travel while touring an area on foot and in turn, better calculate an average of calories burned. Weight conscious travelers can then use this information to make meal choices that won’t negatively impact their waistlines.

Have you tried any of these apps? What do you think?
