Most of us are interested in knowing how many calories everyday activities or chores burn.

I know I was when I was trying to lose weight!

Having a chart of the ways to burn calories will come in handy if you are starting a weight loss diet because
you will probably be combining exercise and diet to reach your goal weight.

If you find you don’t always have time for exercise but you have household chores to do
you could do daily activities that burn calories as part of your calorie burning strategy.
This way you can burn calories while you take care of other responsibilities.

If  you where on a diet eating 1200 calories a day to lose weight then doing two of the exercises on the following calorie burning chart would help you burn an extra 300 calories a day. That would mean you will have only taken in 900 calories for the day.

Combined with counting the number of calories in your food and the number of calories you can burn with activity you can lose weight fast.
