I'll make this short and sweet.

- So far today I ate approx. 1700 calories.

- I worked my biceps and back out for just over an hour.

- I completed a 4 mile run in just under 36 minutes.

Now, the treadmill estimated I burned about 460ish calories during the run. Factor in the hour of lifting and we can guesstimate I burned 550 calories today in the gym alone.

My question is: Theoretically, am I supposed to subtract the number of calories I burned today from the number I consumed, and get my caloric total for the day?

1700 - 550 = 1150?

So confused. =[
