How Many Calories Will You Burn Today? By Shyam Amladi

Let me start with a quiz. What particular physical activity will burn 1,400 calories an hour for a 180 lb person?

Additionally, what activity will burn 245. . . . . Read on.

Health-conscious folks around the world, men, women and youth, have heightened awareness of calories, exercise and in general their state of health. That is good.

What is of some cocern though is that there are scam artists that are trying to hustle their products into our homes as they sense our obsession with losing weight and being healthy.

These products include diet supplements, weight reducing creams, belts and other strange contraptions.None of them have been through any sort of approved clinical trials so the evidence, such as it exists, is purely anecdotal.

The best way to maintain healthy weight and be fit is to be consistent about your exercise routine, burn at least the same amount of calories you take in day in and day out and maintain a comprehensively nutritious diet. It is really that simple.

So how many calories do you generally burn when you exercise or engage in a sports activity?

ANSWERS TO THE QUIZ ABOVE:

As a 180 lb person, you will burn 1,389 calories an hour fast ax chopping wood for one hour.

The same person will only 245 calories throwing frisbee for an hour.

What about Briskwalking? An hour of briskwalking will burn about 250 calories.
