Calories Burned API Call Discrepancy

Mt. Kenya

Calories burned is available when using the getActivityById call but not when using the getLoggedInAthleteActivities call. I am using the API to generate a dataset with ALL of my Strava activities and having calories available for the historic dataset would be ideal. 

Am I missing something or is there a reason calories have been omitted from the getLoggedInAthleteActivities call?




Keeping the less important stats out was certainly done to keep the summary small. Calories are wild guesses anyway.

Yeah I agree the calories aren't necessarily fact, but they are a good approximation and handy! I'm surprised by the level of other detail prioritized over that such as "trainer", "commute", "private" or even "suffer_score" which is arguably also a good approx.
