The Calories Burned Calculator

Although there are those who argue that “calories don’t count,” most experts I’ve spoken with — and trust me, I’ve spoken with quite a few — all agree that 3,500 calories equals a pound of fat.

So dieting is easy: all you have to do is reduce your caloric intake by 500 calories a day, and — over time — you’ll find yourself losing about a pound a week.

Sounds easy, right?  Your first step is to know approximately how many calories it takes to sustain your weight.  That, of course, varies depending on your age, gender and activity level.

So all you need to do to get a precise estimate of what those numbers are, you can enter how many hours you do specific activities at THE CALORIES BURNED CALCULATOR

The list of activities is pretty expansive, and includes such activities as playing guitar, playing frisbee, brushing your teeth, horse grooming, and mopping.  Even sex is broken out to “intercourse” and “foreplay” categories.  Yup, they’ve thought of everything!
