This calculator works out the number of calories burned for a given activity and
duration. It is only approximate, since different levels of exertion will result
in different amounts of energy being used, and is only intended as a guide.
The number of calories burned is also dependent on your weight. This means that
if you lose weight you will actually need to do more exercise to consume the
same number of calories! On the other hand, as you lose weight, exercise becomes
easier. Also, as your fitness improves, you will naturally start to exercise at
a higher rate.
The general advice for exercise is that it should last for at least half an hour
and should leave you breathing heavily, if not a little breathless. This
indicates the correct level of cardiovascular exercise. It should also not be so
intense that you dread repeating it the next day - regular exercise is far more
beneficial than occasional bursts of high calorie consumption.
