HOW MANY CALORIES AM I BURNING?
Here is a chart which will tell you how many calories you burn per hour doing various activities. The activities with an asterisk are followed by the number of calories burned per mile. Remember, these figures may vary based on gender, age, metabolism , and weight. If you are trying to lose weight, it is suggested that you limit your daily food intake rather than trying to burn off the calories by exercising extensively. An exercise program that burns 500 caloris per day is considered strenuous for the average person, so burning any more than that would be considered unwise.
