How Many Calories Do You Burn Lying Down?

Sunday, November 17, 2013

Burning calories plays a key role in losing fat, and while you do so at an elevated rate during periods of vigorous activity, your body never stops burning calories. The rate at which you burn calories while lying down is extremely low, but through specific exercises, it's possible to boost your basal metabolic rate to elevate the number of calories you burn during rest.
