    It's always been "100" this and that in the world of "diet", just a point of reference, not an absolute. Just like headlines about weight loss, some one who lost 96 lbs. will be rounded off to 100, or 47 lbs will be 50, etc. looks better. If you need to lose 7, you say 10. One time I lost 67 lbs. and "prevention" did an article on me, but insisted on saying "70",,,,,,,,, - 6/10/2015 6:40:37 AM
  • If you're a beginnier or have any kind of high blood pressure or health concerns, please check Spark's "Reference Guide to Exercise Intensity". The info is far safer than the numbers given. 80%? No thanks.

    If only you really could do some exercises, right to the minute, in order to lose a certain amount of weight, life would be a breeze, but the body does not work that way. Why is it always "100" calories? We are not machines that can be programmed. - 1/21/2015 4:34:59 AM
  • Playing drums through a 90 minute set , fun workout - 1/21/2015 1:48:47 AM
    I am grateful for this site.Because it shows me a specific way to burn more calories. - 11/14/2014 4:14:48 AM
    the only problem with these estimates, is that they are just that, estimates. Every body burns calories differently. - 10/14/2014 2:06:42 PM
    a lot of the things listed surprised me for the time it took. I walk 4x's a week at lunch and do water aerobics 3 most on the list is a no no for me - 10/5/2014 6:43:23 PM
  • It took a minute to realize why walking with a dog requires 6 more minutes to burn the same amount of calories as walking alone...then I figured it out. - 6/16/2014 11:45:43 AM
    I was surprised for some of the times listed especially house work - 6/14/2014 2:13:19 AM
  • This reminds me to track house cleaning! I didn't realize how many calories we burn. Thank you for the info. - 3/10/2014 5:02:59 PM
    Oh my. No wonder I want to eat so much! I have a 1 year old and 2 year old and am a stay at home mom 5-6 days a week and a critical care nurse 1-2 days a week. Never really thought about the calories I burn just from caring for my sons. This article was eye opening. - 3/3/2014 1:41:30 PM
  • I have a hard time believing that 8 min on the elliptical is the same calorie burn as jumping rope for 9 min. Jumping rope for 9 minutes is like sprinting for 9 min. The elliptical just doesn't give you the same workout. - 11/18/2013 11:06:49 AM
  • Very useful; I'm glad that using an Elliptical Trainer or running stairs is high up, and boy am I ever glad that I live on the third floor and without an elevator! That probably saved me a few pounds already over the years. - 11/6/2013 5:40:43 PM
  • Thanks for sharing. - 10/14/2013 6:58:07 AM
