Calories Burned Chart

According to my best friend Amy, the Calories Burned Chart is the next step after checking out your BMI chart number.

 She looks me straight in the eye, and with that sweet little smile of hers, she tells me I need to "lose the caboose". She's right of course, and it worked for her so ... what've I got to lose? (I know -the caboose!)

 -She says that after estimating your ideal weight using the bmi chart , the calories burned chart is a real no-brainer for me . (Should you eat?)

Instead of just relying on online calorie counters and your food intake, be pro-active with your daily calorie burning activities.

-It can help you to estimate how much you're burning off daily in your everyday activities, as well as the calorie burn-off when you're working out, and in various sporting activities that you participate in.

-Amy says to think in terms of 15-minute intervals instead of calories per hour, it's a much more realistic approach, and a lot more do-able this way.

It can help eliminate the all too common "I'm too busy" excuse.

 If you try to think of your everyday activities as your workout, you'll have plenty of time for them and you can focus more on it, burn-off a little more energy .... and a few more calories as well.

-If you're raking the front yard, do the back as well, it all adds up!

-When you're going shopping, park a little further away than you normally would and get a brisk 10 minute walk in.

-Amy parks about 15 minutes away, and across the street when grocery shopping, no wonder the little jerk looks so great. (just kidding Amy)

Seriously though, a few minutes here and there, next thing you know, you start looking like Amy.

(and that's a good thing believe me, and healthy -don't get me started!)

-You have a rough idea of what your ideal weight should be from the BMI chart, now you need to know how to reach or maintain it.

If you forgot, here's the BMI Chart again.

-First you'll need to determine your activity level, try to be as accurate as you can, it really helps.

-It's simple really, the more active you are, the more calories per pound your body will need, and the more calories your body will burn off.

-Here's how many calories per pound (of your desired weight) you'll need to burn off, in order to reach or maintain your ideal weight.

-Activity Level

-20 Calories per pound -If you are an extremely active individual.

-17 per pound -For very active people.

-15 per pound -If you are only moderately active, and

-13 per pound -For those of us who are not very active.

-Just multiply the calories per pound (from your activity level, above) by your desired ideal weight. (With a little help from the bmi chart)

-So, as an example, if you're a moderately active person, and you figured out your ideal weight would be, say 140 pounds, then 140 pounds x 15 calories per pound = 2,100 calories per day, -to maintain that weight. (140 lbs)

-To lose weight to achieve 140 pounds, you would have to consume less than 2,100 per day.

-The more calories, fewer than 2,100 you consume, the faster you would achieve that ideal weight.

-You can see what a big difference your activity level can make, by stepping up to the very active level, you would burn off another 280 a day! (2 extra calories per pound x 140 = 280)

Quote of the day...

When I buy cookies I eat just four and throw the rest away. But first I spray them with Raid so I won't dig them out of the garbage later. Be careful, though, because that Raid really doesn't taste that bad. ~Janette Barber


Seriously, if you can burn off 500 more calories than you take each day, you can lose one pound each week. That may not sound like much to you, but that's 52 pounds a year! Now if you started a year ago ...
