The Number of Calories Burned from Everyday Activities
Blast Calories All Day Long
It’s easy to determine how many calories you’re eating—just turn the package over and look at the label. But when it comes to figuring out how many calories you're burning, the answer isn't always so simple to find. Most of us have no clue how much we’re moving—or in many cases, not moving. A recent International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity study found that about 45% of inactive people overestimate how many calories they burn. No wonder we’re getting fatter each year.
To help you gauge how many calories you’re really burning throughout the day, we’ve rounded up a number of activities calculated their calorie-blasting power.
