Add an exercise calculator for various everyday activities and exercises. You already have how much we weigh. When we add in how long we exercised for it should be able to calculate the calories burned. For example....A 200 lb person walking for 60 minutes at a speed of 2 mph will have burned 277 calories.

I found this free calculator. Maybe you can come up with something similar or maybe they would even allow you to use it.

Either way, a great site and a great app! Thanks for helping me get back in shape.

that's exactly what the exercise > cardio > add exercise area does..

go there, search walking, pick your pace and MFP calculates a calorie burn for that time period for your weight.
your 200lb person may burn that but a 330 lb person burns more in the same time-frame. Actually entering the stats you provided does provide a 227 calorie burn, the 330lb person gets 374 for that same activity.

see exercise > database and look at the drop-down list in the top right to get an idea of what activities are available currently in MFP
