  • Nice... now all I need to know is how many calories are burned while doing walk/jog intervals AND pushing a baby stroller with 2 little ones in it... - 2/6/2013 4:01:27 PM
    Work out at the senior citizens center gym 40 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Use a book to count calories and yu will lose weight if you stay below 2000 calories a day. - 2/6/2013 11:31:43 AM
  • This article certainly made my day. I haven't been able to go to the gym because I pulled the muscles in my hip. I got frustrated when I did go because I haven't been able to do what I used to do when I was smaller. (I gained 30 pounds in 1 years after hysterectomy) I was pushing myself and hurting myself to try and do it. Then I would give up and eat feeling disgusted with myself. - 2/6/2013 9:41:08 AM
    I do not think the fitness trackers are 100% accurate but remember the calorie count is signified by your current weight, this was calculated on someone weighing about 140 pounds in their late twenties or early thirties. - 2/6/2013 9:04:02 AM
  • im depressed i gained i cant seem to get back on track. - 1/21/2013 10:28:22 AM
  • Hey this is great, just what I needed to read right now.
    I'm just about to head outside and clear some leaves (autumn / fall is just setting in here in the UK) so I shall bear in mind how many calories I'm burning and it will make the job seem that much easier!
    And I didn't realise jumping rope at moderate intensity was such a good calorie burner. I've just ordered myself a rope, so this article has come just at the right time for me! - 10/25/2012 3:52:57 AM
  • great list.. good guidelines for things we are already doing.... adding an extra 5 minutes here and there will really add up... thanks for sharing. - 10/25/2012 3:34:50 AM
  • This article was very informative! I have found one of the hardest things to do at the gym is the eliptical, but even just ten minutes can help me burn 100 calories, and increase my fat burn. Thank you sparkpeople! - 10/24/2012 4:10:53 PM
  • This article is good information and I will use in my daily life. Thank you Sparkspeople! - 10/24/2012 9:50:23 AM
  • 40 minutes of doing dishes??? Whose house is that...the Duggars??? - 9/21/2012 3:52:36 AM
    G0 back and read the article again. Swimming only takes 15 minutes to burn 100 calories. Treading water takes 23 minutes. It is not the same thing. - 8/9/2012 1:53:29 PM
    Yes this article is good advice and appropriate. It states that it is based on an individual person whose weight is 150 lbs. SparksPeople estimates our calories burned it using our current weight and the time we complete our particular exercise. If I weigh a great deal more then 150 lbs I will burn more calories exercising for awhile, than someone smaller. When I lose weight I will have to increase my intensity of exercise to burn as much or more then when I was heavy! The lovely thing is our bodies are tolerating exercise better and our metabolic furnace is requireing more from us to keep that furnace burning. The pay off is the intense amount of energy we get from moving more ! Got to Love that! - 8/7/2012 3:05:18 PM
