Are you referring to on the water rowing, or rowing indoors on an ergometer? Both burn calories at a very rapid rate.

On a concept 2 erg machine, you can select a screen that displays the number of calories per hour.

On the water, it is a bit harder to gauge, but if you plan on rowing competitively, you can easily burn over 1000 calories in a 2-3 hour session.

From my experience as a varsity collegiate rower, throughout our rigorous two-a-day practice sessions, it is necessary to consume nearly 5000 calories a day, and weight can still be lost.

Depending on the level you seek to row at, you can easily burn a huge amount of calories.

What would a person have to do in order to lose twenty pounds in three weeks?

Each pound of fat is equivalent to 3500 calories, so in order to lose a pound of fat, an individual has to expend that much energy or curb his dietary intake by that amount. For example, if he were to exercise away 500 calories daily, he would lose a pound in a week. Alternatively, cutting his intake by 500 calories would accomplish the same goal. In order to lose seven pounds weekly, he would have to save or expend the 3500 calories every day. Since most of us require 1500-2500 calories daily, depending on activity and metabolism, that would require a great deal of exercise. A rule of thumb is 100 calories for a mile walked; therefore, a daily loss of a pound would require a daily walk of 35 miles OR curbing intake by 1000 calories, probably not a healthy choice, and walking 25 miles daily. Note: it takes the same energy to move a body one mile whether it's done walking or running. The only variable there is the time.

What has the most calories medium cooked or well done bacon?

By the slice, the medium cooked has more calories as it still contains more fat than has rendered out of the well done slices. By the ounce, well done bacon has the most calories as it weighs less than raw or medium cooked for the same reason: the fat has rendered out and it is lighter, so more slices per ounce. Well done always has the least fat. So if you want the least fat and calories per slice, always use well done.
