hello ! I was wondering if anyone knows how to calculate calories vs. carbs. During my treadmill workouts the machine tells me how many calories I have burned , But I'm not counting calories, so what is the formula for converting these burned calories into carbs I've burned ?? thank you !

Karin, there are 4 calories in a carb, I think ... but I don't know that you can do a straight-across conversion as far as the "burning" thing. There's all that business about conversion to glucose, etc.
All times are MT (US).
All dates are in Month-Day-Year format.
