If your preferred method of exercise is based on what burns the most calories, you might lean towards the elliptical machine. Lifehacker reports that a new study indicates you may be getting inaccurate information from the machine's caloric read out. The study which was published last year compared the calorie burn on a Precor elliptical with participants’ actual calorie burn that was measured with lab equipment. The results showed that after a 30-minute workout, the "calories burned" number on the elliptical readout was 128 calories higher than the more accurate lab measurement. If you were relying on that number to calculate your calorie deficit for the day you’d be way off.
