Standing up can burn 115 calories per hour while sitting down can burn 75 calories per hour. If someone is spending hours sitting down while using a computer, a computer stand may come in handy for burning calories. If someone spends five hours on a computer, 375 calories are burned sitting down. However, standing up while spending time on a computer can burn 575 calories! Every calorie counts, and this simple trick makes losing weight much easier.

You don't. Get off your butt and do something.

You burn about more than 1,000 calories a day! You can burn calories by walking across the room or sitting down. Even by just scratching your head! It's that easy.

First of all it depends onwhetheryou are standing up or sitting down. Then it depends on several other factors as age and weight. Simply use a caloric calculator where you enter the necessary information. Then you register the time it takes for you to pee under the activity "standing" or "sitting".

Yes, just by staying alive you burn calories, breathing in and out, heart beat, scratching your head all burn calories, the problem is that these 'activities' burn very few compared to the large amount you take in with a meal, if you really want to burn calories, move more, take a walk, go to the gym, take up a sport or swim.

you still undergo basic bodily functions while you sleep. Heartbeat, brain function, digestion etc. All bodily processes burn some calories. Same reason you burn calories while you're sitting down doing nothing. Save

you burn more fat when you are sitting. the muscles in your body are forced to work harder because your body is not producing momentum for each pedal pushed.

Not much. You burn 5 calories going up a flight of stairs. You burn 1 calorie talking for one minute. You burn 5 calories brusing your teeth (for 2 minutes). You burn 1 calorie standing for a minute. You burn 1 calorie laying down for 4 minutes.

What a stupid question. But FYI, if you are cleaing a pen whilst sitting down, you may burn between 0 and 1 calories per session. However, if you are cleaning a pen whilst on a treadmill, then you are likely to burn more.

Around max 3 calories per min, so up to 180 calories per hour by sitting.

sitting because it is better for your digestive track

No. They sleep sitting down.

Very few, unless you play a Wii. So the age old question is can you burn calories while playing videogames and the answer? Is yes you can but I can't give you an exact number because it depends on what type of video game you are playing and your overall weight at the moment. Is it the kind that you just sit and use the controller? Do you stand while you play the game? (Incidentally you'd burn more calories if you do.) Is it the kind where you are physically moving your entire body or dancing? How avid are you at button mashing? Do you do it slowly? Do you do it quickly? (Quicker is better for burning calories not necessarily for gameplay though.) All these variables come into play and must be considered. Considering the fact that both playing the piano and playing videogames require you to use your hands (barring the exception of the occasional use of the sustain pedal) It has to be somewhere betwixt the number calories you burn playing piano and the number of calories you burn surfing the web. It depends on your weight and if you're standing or sitting or lying down. Generally speaking you'll burn more calories standing while playing a video game than you would sitting while playing a video game. And more sitting than while lying down. You'll burn even less while you're asleep should that ever happen while playing a video game. You don't have to play a wii to burn calories heck you could sit or lay down play videogames and still burn calories. The intensity of the gaming session may change the number of calories burned.

There's many things people say is the cause, but the truth is: it all simply comes down to eating more calories than you burn. So many Americans are sitting and sitting and sitting for hours a day, yet they're eating the calories that an active person should be eating. That's why more Americans are becoming obese.

let me know when you find out.

Sitting down she's a girl. you never know she can have a hidden identity and a hidden penis

Your body is constantly burning calories for fuel, whether you're standing up, sitting down, or sleeping. You can speed up the process by exercising (especially cardiovascular exercise, such as running, swimming, biking, Spinning, skiing, ect.) You will be burning far more calories during a hard run, then when you are sleeping. Depending on the type of cardio you are doing, and how hard you are pushing yourself, you could burn up to 600 (and over) calories in an hour. Another way to burn more calories is to build your muscles with weight-bearing exercises. Muscles need calories, so the more muscle you have, the more calories you will be burning all day long.

The best way for you to burn lots of calories while running is to run up hills or at an incline. If that is not an option you can also run up and down stairs those provides a lot of burn calories.
