There are a few factors to take into account to determine how many calories you will burn in a day. If you are curious why there some people who doesn’t do anything but just sitting at home watching television does not grow fat and you are thinking how many calories do I burn in a normal day? The three main factors of the amount of calories that your body will burn, bodyweight, the amount of time you spend to exercise, how hard you exercise.
Body weight is the most important factor that determines the amount of the calories you burn. If you are exercising, body weight determines how many more calories that you will burn because the more you weigh, the more calories that you will burn when exercising. This is because heavier people need more energy to move themselves around and the body will burn the calories in order to supply the energy to the body. What would a person with smaller body size have to do in order to burn the same amount of calories as a person who is bigger than he/she? The smaller size person will need to exercise harder than the big size person.
The next factor would be the duration of how long you workout. The longer time you dedicate to your workout, the more calories you will burn. You will also burn more calories if you workout for 30 minutes instead of 10 minutes. However, you can split your workout session into three 10 minutes session and you will burn the same calories as you work out for 30 minutes straight. When you decide split up your workouts routine, it is best to keep them at 10 minutes or longer if you are planning to lose weight.
If you are doing nothing and you are just sitting at home watching television from your couch, you are very likely will be burning very little amount of calories and the amount of the calories in your body will end up as fat in your body.
The last factor of the amount of calories you burn in a normal day is how hard you exercise. If your daily exercise is walking to the office from your car, you are definitely not going to burn a lot of calories but if your daily exercise is hitting the gym and running on the treadmill for at least 45 minutes, then you are definitely burning a lot of calories.
