Calorie expenditure is just as important as calorie intake when it comes to fat loss and weight management. Our easy to read table illustrates the average calories burnt during exercise and various activities so you can gain a clearer picture of your calorie usage.
We must remember that the following figures are estimations. The amount of calories you burn will depend on a whole host of factors, from your bodyweight to the intensity in which you perform the activity.
All figures are for calorie expenditure over 30 minutes.
