I'm curious how you calculate your calorie count into your work out. I've changed my diet to be more healthy and have limited my portions while increasing the ammount of times I eat throughout the day. My goal is to have a calorie intake of 1500 in order to lose my desired amount of weight . How do I figure out the calories lost with exercising so I know how little or how much I need to eat throughout the day?
None of my exercises involve using machines with any sort of calorie counter on them.

I hope so, cause 1500 calorie intake + exercise is a pretty bad formula. 1500 calories should only be done IF your NOT working out. You should actually be eating more than a normal inactive person when your tryin to lose weight and get healthy. Otherwise you'll lose both muscle and fat as your weight loss.

Lose body fat good, losing muscle bad...
