Calorie and Energy Expenditure
Optimum Calorie Expenditure
How Many Calories Should you burn?
Health and fitness research indicates that to reap the health benefits of cardio or strength-training exercise, we should burn between 700 calories (bare minimum) and 2,000 calories (optimal disease-protection benefit) per week, in moderate aerobic activity.
How to Burn Recommended Calories by Walking
Brisk walking, at about four miles an hour, burns about 100 calories per mile. (Power-walking burns more!) Therefore, to burn the minimum recommended number of weekly calories (700), you need to cover a total of seven miles, or walk for about 1 hour 45 minutes.
Similarly, in order to burn 2,000 calories in a week, you need to cover a total of 20 miles, or walk for about five hours.
How to Burn Recommended Calories by Swimming
If you enjoy swimming, then to burn 700 calories you need to swim at a reasonable speed for about 1 hour 10 minutes. To burn 2000 calories, you need to perform a 40-minute swimming workout, five days a week.
