Now that you know what the proper weight range is for you, it is time to understand how weight is managed. A calorie is a unit of measure that indicates the amount of energy gained from food or expended through activity. If you take in the same amount of calories you expend you will maintain your current body weight which is called Isocaloric Balance. Did you know that calorie expendiutre, whether it is BMR or daily activity is different for diffreent people? Did you know that we tend to over estimate how many calories we burn during exercise and underestimate the anount of calories we consume? No points will be awarded on this assignment, but I highly recommend that you fill it out for your own benefit.
LiveScience illustrated the numbers behind this research in this infographic, comparing the number of calories burned in 30 minutes by a 196-pound person, as well as a 164-pound person, doing such activities as gardening, vacuuming, cooking, making the bed and carrying boxes upstairs. It's admittedly disheartening to find that cleaning and even sex burn so few calories in comparison to typical exercise, but this infographic does provide some insight into which chores burn more calories than others.
If these numbers seem high to you, keep in mind that they represent calories burned for 196-pound and 164-pound people.

While performing household chores will improve the look of your home, it's unfortunately not going to do much for your waistline, according to new research.

18 issue of BMC Public Health discovered that people who classified housework as weekly exercise weighed more than those who turned to more conventional forms of exercise, such as running or cycling. These activities are compared to traditional exercise, such as running, swimming, cycling, aerobics and dancing. Conversely, overtime when your body expends an extra 3500 calories, you will lose a pound of fat.
And, if you expend more than you take in you will lose weight which is called Negative Caloric Balance.
First males tend to have a higher percert of muscles in their bodies and this muscle burns more calories than body fat. Let's look at a few activities and the calories burned based on 130lb person and a 200lb person. This will be the bulk of the calories you burn in a given day, but remember every bit counts!
