Anyone have a good source for determining how many you will burn? I have read Ketosis, and it just lists a general 40grams for athletes before training, but that seems like saying everyone needs the same amount of calories or percent of protein. Does anyone have a calculation or general guideline that isn't so "one size fits all"?

Its always going to be a mix of glycogen and fats burned during exercise and it depends on what type of exercise. For instance, walking burns primarily fat as long as you are strong enough to walk. Squatting your 5 rep max is mostly going to burn glycogen. Everything else falls somewhere in between the two.
That being what it is, here is a good calculator. http://www.prohealth.com/weightloss/tools/exercise/calculator1_2.cfm
