How many calories burned doing house work?
This is a great chart. Also to find how much you can eat and still lose weight use this: To calculate your daily calorie limit in order to lose weight, follow this formula. Take your target weight, multiply it by 4.35 and add 655. Take your height in inches and multiply it by 4.32. Take your age and multiply it by 4.7. Subtract the age total from the height total, then add the new total to your weight total.

5-7 calories per minute
The number of calories that are burned doing nothing, also known as one's "metabolism", differs for each person but an average adult burns 2000 calories a day. You can increas…e your metabolism by doing endurance exercises such as swimming, running, or biking.
If your doing Yoga your not burning calories. Instead your adding flexibility in your self.
Yoga doesn't burn calories, it only add flexibility. It also influence on reducing stress and depression levels. Definitely worth doing without burning our extra calorie…s.
depends on how much you run, and it's different for everyone.
The loss of calories in an individual is totally depends on the nature of work of an individual.When we are doing a cardio workout we should remember that the cardio exe…rcise is for a minimum 20 minutes because it is related directly to the heart.In 10 minutes exercise we loss about 50-100 calories during the exercise period.
It all depends on the exercise that you do.
It depends on a variety of factors, including your age, weight, current fitness level, how high the resistance on the elliptical machine is set, how fast you are going... Just… never trust what the machine tells you... they always over estimate.
it's unknown but you do lose a lot of weight! trust me my mom did it and she burnt soo much calories and lost so much weight in one week! i mean she is 50 years old, so if she… can lose that much weight then younger people can lose more weight faster than her! (:
Depends on how hard you go at it, and how long you keep doing them. And your age, and your gender, and your fitness level. Anything between 300-600 can be expected.
About 15-20 calories
You can burn up to 100-300 calories doing housework but this depends on your gender weight age height and what activities you do and for how long you do it for,
can be anywhere from 300-500 in an intense session
When it comes to burning calories, how hard and for how long is much more important than what you do. Pretty much all activities that gives you the same increase in heart …rate for the same time will burn the same amount of calories. Now, it can be a bit difficult to get a good burn going doing canoeing, as most people won't have enough upper body endurance to paddle hard and fast and long. And it's dependent on weight, gender, age, fitness level etc. But let's say about 300 calories/hour.
There's no set answer, it depends on how long and how hard you work out. Pushing hard, maybe 450 cals/hour.
Depends on how hard and for how long you go at it. If you get and keep decently sweaty and winded, maybe 450 calories each hour.
