Daily Calories Burned
You may think the only way your body burns calories is by spending hours at the gym or exercising. The truth is that your body is burning calories at all times of day, even when you're sitting there in front of the computer. Your body's basic functions like breathing, heart beating, blood pumping, all require calories to operate. Then, your body burns more depending on your level of activity on a day to day basis to arrive at your total daily calories burned.
Find Out How Many Calories to Burn by Using Our Burn Calculator
The number of calories the human body burns varies greatly from person to person. At rest, calories burned depend on your genetics, height, weight, age, and sex. Men for example, tend to burn more calories at rest due to a higher percentage of muscle mass which burns more than fat mass at rest. Then, as you age, your muscle mass declines, also causing a decline in your metabolism and calories needed to function. By using our calorie burn calculator, you can find out how many calories you burn which then helps you figure out the calorie intake you need to eat to either lose, maintain, or gain weight.
