How can you burn off some of those extra calories before they turn into extra pounds? After thinking about a particular dish you savored (was it that brownie sundae?), try our “Get Moving! Calculator” to see how many calories you expend doing your favorite exercise or activity.
Note: Figures are based on moderate (as opposed to vigorous) activity. A heavier person burns more calories, so the same amount of physical activity can actually burn the same number of calories but more quickly. But remember, exercising harder and faster only increases the calories expended slightly. To burn more calories it is better to exercise for a longer time.
Determining how many calories you burn is not an exact science. This number should only be used as an estimate of calorie expenditure.
