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. This number represents the amount of calories you can consume each day and still drop pounds Type of housework Calories burned per half-hour Doing laundry 73 Making the bed 68 Cooking 85 Washing the dishes 78 Ironing 78 Dusting 85 Sweeping 112 Vacuuming 119 Scrubbing the floors 129 Rearranging furniture 204 Yard work 170 Washing windows 102 Washing the car 102 Gardening 136 Mowing the lawn 187 Raking 146 Shoveling snow 204 Carrying a small child (up to 15 lbs.) up and down stairs 289
