I want to know how many calories I lose per day. Tracking amount of calorie I take wouldn't be a problem if I read labels in food.

But how do I know how much calorie I'm loosing?

On the weekdays, I ride bicycle 10 mins for home to station for train. Then 20 mins from the train station to work.

same when I come back, 20 mins then 10.

So, it is like 1 hr of bicycle ride per day. But not continuous. I also workout but number of days are not fixed yet. It is somewhere in the range from 2-4.

My BF is around 17% and I want to reach at the level of 10% by the end of June.

Any tips of hints.

If I were you, I would keep a food journal. It's free and you can record every aspect of your nutritional intake including protein, carbs, fats, calories etc. All that is required is that you read food labels and/or buy a calorie counter. Knowing what you're currently consuming will allow you to plan much better than guessing.

Sites like (which I use) have exercise logs which you can use to track amount of calories burned. Maybe you should check one of those out.

Edit: As mentioned in @rrirower answer, food logging is equally important. Sites like or have both food and exercise logging.

but how accurate are they? – Biplov13 Feb 23 '14 at 17:54
I would say accurate enough, but only if they account your weight in the calculation (along with the rest of parameters, like speed and gradient). You can never have it 100% accurate, but for weight loss tracking I would say they are accurate enough. – omittones Feb 23 '14 at 17:57
