I have been messing around with

thedailyplate.com

and by looking at their physical activity calculators for calories burned, there are some huge differences between theirs and the one on exrx.net.

At first I thought their calculator was a bit off because it listed 1300 calories burned for 75 minutes of basketball for me (230 lb). The exrx calculator lists about half that.

On a similarly strange note, the exrx calculator lists cycling for 30 minutes (for me again) as 490 calories while basketball for 30 only has 311 calories burned.

Now, I am sorry but 13 mph cycling is rather slow and basketball requires a constantly high output.

Any thoughts on these calculators?
