How can I know exactly how many calories I am burning?

The best way to know exactly how many calories you’re burning is to wear a body monitoring system like the exerspy or body bug. These are typically worn on the arm and will accurately measure how many calories you burn per minute of each day, each hour, and each day, as well as total steps taken and the intensity of activities you perform. These can be purchased online and each day the information must be uploaded and calculated. These devices will give you the most accurate calculation of how many calories you burn each day during your activities.
