Calorie Calculator

Just how many calories did you burn on that hike?

 
One of the fantastic perks about backpacking is that you have a free license to eat almost anything you want. The key word is almost. The number of calories you actually burn in the backcountry depends on many factors—distance, elevation gain, temperature, pack weight, and so forth. Use these formulas to calculate roughly how many calories you’ll need each day, to make sure you're getting, not too many nor too few, but just the right amount. And for more precise calorie counters, based on activity, time, and weight, check out caloriesperhour.com.

Also, look for our blowout Cook Like a Pro feature in the September issue for a wealth of delicious, filling, and easy recipes, as well as essential cooking tips, tricks, and techniques from expert backcountry chefs.

Calorie Calculator
 
Less active (rest day)
Body weight (lbs.) x (both) 13.5 to 15 calories per pound = range of calories used per day
 
Moderately active (60 minutes of easy day hiking, climbing, or skiing with no pack)
Body weight (lbs.) x (both) 16 to 20 calories per pound = range of calories used per day
 
Very active (60 to 120 minutes of hiking, climbing, or skiing that involves hills and carrying a pack)
Body weight (lbs.) x (both) 21 to 25 calories per pound = range of calories used per day
 
Extremely Active (long strenuous day of hiking, climbing, or skiing with a heavy 
pack)
Body weight (lbs.) x (both) 25 to 30 calories per pound = range of calories used per day

He wore it while fighting forest fires <a href="http://www.firstrolexwatches.com">rolex watch sale</a> and fishing in the PNW, and he raised large. I bought this watch for him as a Christmas gift, and he loved her. It looks great, comfotable and was reasonably priced. We hope that this former long-term power.So, I was very saddened to lose such a nice watch, but I'm glad I finally found it again here on Amazon, so I had to order it for me right now ... , Feature else was all fine and dandy, but I'm not an avid fisherman hunting, <a href="http://www.greatrolexwatches.com">rolex watches sale</a> but I'm a professional, and additional features again <a href="http://www.greatrolexwatches.com">rolex watches sale</a> beautiful and useful and funtional for those who take their time to read the instructions and learn about their equipment. Funtion watch ... That's all ...I had two second audible alarm clock that I did not warn crowded areas. Vibrating alarm works very well, despite the noisy environment, <a href="http://www.firstrolexwatches.com">rolex watches</a> and the light in the night figures are very clear and readable, even without glasses. I am very pleased with the product. Fixing it is not intuitive and requires no written instructions that accompany the clock.

However, when I was a non-audible alarm, Wake Me Up, I was the only one who knew it was not going to ... were destroyed or nobody bothered. It was comfortable to wear watches because I less person by nature, <a href="http://www.greatestrolexwatches.com/rolex-milgauss-watches-c-4.html">rolex milgauss</a> I was also a good size to watch. See lasted more diverse conditions of 140 + degree days, sandstorms, dust and daily wear and tear installation, and just about anything I had to pass before it was stolen ...I am writing to tell you that I was looking for this watch because my stolen when I was sent to Iraq, my first time in 2006-2007. <a href="http://www.greatestrolexwatches.com/rolex-submariner-watches-c-1.html">rolex submariner</a> Tower position my little connection original hours, like all of us, the soldiers set the alarm, but the fact that some people sleep through loud and annoying alarm does not sit well with only sleeping, or those that do not have to be a few hours.I just bought my husband watch it again. He is a great fisherman and hunter time, and he never takes - even in the bathroom in it. <a href="http://www.rolexwatchesmarketing.com">rolex watch</a> The first, held for many years and it still works fine when I bought it new (it just disappeared). He always looks at his watch and said, fish bite. He also likes to have the best of everything, and he never felt that he needed to update hours.The bottom line is that it's easy, and loaded with features. Style works in most cases, except for formal. And the price is right. <a href="http://www.rolexwatchesmarketing.com/rolex-yachtmaster-watches-c-10.html">rolex yacht-master</a> My watch comes super fast and it was well packed.

Only a little more than a basic Casio could find a department store, this watch is completely worth it. If you fish, you may find <a href="http://www.originalburberrywatches.com">cheap burberry watches</a> that it is very useful, but even if you do not, then all functions. I like the vibration signal feature. I can recall no sound around to distract me (or fish).Lighting coincides with INDIGLO, and you can set it to automatic start when you need to look at his face in a typical viewing angle. <a href="http://www.originalburberrywatches.com">burberry watch</a> Five alarms useful. Moon Phase feature is a nice plus, too, if you're a space nerd like me.Overall, I think this is a very nice watches that are well designed to be easy to use. It seems that field athletes to watch in addition <a href="http://www.burberrywatches.us/burberry-watch-men-c-1.html">burberry watches men</a> to the clunky look. The combination of leather and nylon strap looks much better than many of the hard plastic band watch. If it just was not as thick and water proof, this would be a great watch. However, although some fats hand, I still love these hours.I had other bubble shape hours lens on it, and rub that hit all that he came to cause various types of scratches. <a href="http://www.burberrywatches.us">replica burberry watches</a> It was not long before it was difficult to see and say what time it was. The raised ring around it would not protect him from everything, but it will protect the lens from accidental contact with things such as walls and doors opening and things like that as you walk or through them.

This light is very bright and easy to see. If it is dark enough, you can see the dial clock continues to glow softly for a few seconds after the light goes out. And the light bright enough to see something similar to <a href="http://www.burberrywatchesmarketing.com">cheap burberry watches</a> your front door keyhole to unlock it overnight. Light can also be enabled automatically when the clock is moved from a vertical plane when you have on your wrist to see the time.I had a look that was very loud, but the high frequency tone that I could not hear. When the alarm was set for 11:30 am and I got a lot of funny looks when he went to pray. I used to vibrate alarm this morning and <a href="http://www.burberrywatchesmarketing.com">burberry watches</a> it worked perfectly Wake Me Up. However, they are not completely silent. Who ever makes vibration and makes a soft low hum step that I hear. But nothing like alarm beep and not very noticeable.For me, I use it to mark where I got my medication and pain relief. I used a stopwatch his old watch, but it will be easier to use. <a href="http://www.topburberrywatches.com">burberry watch</a> There is one feature that is not available, most multifunction watches, and this timer number. But the timer works just as well and easily set alarms.Vibration alarm is that I had hours before it's really beautiful. I have bad hearing loss from car manufacturing plants with more than 20 years, <a href="http://www.topburberrywatches.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1">burberry watch men</a> and my hearing in the higher bands completely disappeared. Awesome sound normal hours of anxiety for me not to hear.
