Freediving and calories burned

Thread Status: Hello , There was no answer in this thread for more than 60 days.
It can take a long time to get an up-to-date response or contact with relevant users.
Be careful with the advise, Bill. That much ice would be hard to come by in places like Kona, and would all be gone by morning. It would likely make the diet hard to stick with. If only I could just shovel the back yard (in Anchorage) and ship off all the snow to Kona
Note to all: be a little leary of the woodchopper analogy. If you were burning that many calories, your breathhold would be zip. As it is, some of us (like Bill) can hold pretty long. I'm not sure about what is really going on to get so tired after a trip to the water, but I'm typically not huffing and puffing like a woodchopper, even when diving up here. Saturday the water was 39F, and I stayed in for about 50 minutes, until my hands would no longer work to clear during descent. Lower breathhold times than when in Kona, but still over a minute, and with no huffing and puffing or shivering (too much)
