Calories Burned Chart / Calorie Burn Table

You burn calories which convert to energy for three main bodily functions:

1) Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) This is the amount of calories you burn each just by living – even when you are asleep or doing nothing. BMR takes 60% of the calories burned for most of us.

2) Calories burned during for Activity This is the energy used during movement – from doing the shopping to going to the loo. This ais approximately 30% of the calories burned.

3) Dietary Thermogenesis.  Big words but the thermogenic effect is best described as meal-induced heat production – the calories burned in the process of eating, digesting, absorbing and using food.

Low Carb Diets

Washing Windows

  • In Chinese restaurants, choose stir-fried dishes rather than sweet and sour or sesame dishes.
  • Replace 8 ounces of fruit juice or soda with water.
  • Try raw vegetables instead of tortilla chips with your salsa.
  • Instead of two alcoholic beverages, drink one and follow with water.

More way to burn calories:

Walk or ride a bike to work if possible. A friend of mine works two blocks from home, yet he drives to work. If you commute and use a form of mass transit, don't depart at the nearest stop. Get off at the previous stop and walk the rest of the way.

Park and shop. What do most of us tend to do when we go shopping? We look for a place to park as close to the entrance as possible. Some of us are even willing to keep driving in circles until we find that cherished spot. Why not park away from everyone? You will find plenty of parking spaces and you will gain health benefits by walking the extra distance. An added benefit; your car is more likely to be spared from parking lot dings and dents.

11 More Calories Burned Per Hour

A study conducted at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota shows a direct correlation to chewing gum and weight loss. Does chewing a piece of gum actually make a difference as far as losing weight?

Yes it does!

It depends on how often you chew gum.

If you chew gum often, then yes, it will make a difference for weight loss. The researchers found that chewing gum increases your metabolism by 20%. The study showed that the average gum chewer burns off 11 more calories for each hour of chewing gum as opposed to people who don't chew gum.

Over a year, that adds up to thousands of calories burned during chewing as well as 10 pounds or more weight loss.
