    In regards to the first part, the goal is to come closest to the caloric goal. So coming in way under really doesn’t help, you have to try and hit your target calories allowed each day? So if you are allowed 1,000, you walk 8 miles, and burn 600 calories, brings you to 400 so you need to eat 600 to hit right on your target and win the challenge?

    Honestly, we hadn’t really thought about that aspect of it as I assumed that we’d both struggle to be under our goal not that we’d struggle to reach our calorie goal. We don’t to penalize exercise but we don’t want to starve ourselves either!

    So uhm… I’m not sure! I guess we’ll just cross that bridge when we get there.

    It’s like Price Is Right rules for the calories. It’s tough to be super under.. but closest w/out going over may penalize exercise.. then again, you both will be exercising anyway to try to get the mileage in. I think it’s a good competition all 3 ways. I’m not competing but you guys are going to make me look bad so I’m going to start doing MFP tomorrow with my Train buddies to keep accountable 😛
