How Many Calories Do I Burn in a Day - Learn How to Manipulate It

  1. 1. How Many Calories Do I Burn In A Day? -And Learn How To Manipulate ItWhen you’re deciding on your weight loss battle plan, you usually start with the first questionbeing, “How many calories do I burn in a day right now? If it’s a whole crap-load, then I’m notgoing to work that hard. If it’s hardly anything to begin with, then I’m going to give up now while Istill have some dignity.”Ok, so that’s more of a joke, but I’ll honestly attest that probably most people that attempt tolose weight, give up just that easily. They see where they are, they see where they want to be,and then they say “Screw it.”Well, you might be interested to learn that the number of calories that you’re burning each dayright now may only require a very small adjustment to result in you losing as much weight asyou choose.And while there are quite a few equations, formulas, and online web applications that will helpyou to analytically discover your daily caloric burn, I’m going to show you a much simpler wayto formulate this answer and how you can use this knowledge to improve your current fat lossefforts.Calculating Your Daily Calories Burned Depends On Your BMR (BasalMetabolic Rate)The beginning, middle, and end of this idea of burning calories throughout the day all has to dowith your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). Your BMR is the rate that determines how many caloriesyou need in order to continue working your basic functions.These basic functions constitute most of your vital bodily operations like breathing, sleeping,breaking down food, pumping your heart and blood, and even adjusting your internaltemperature. That means everyone’s BMR is always working regardless of how fast they claim itis.Realistically, most people’s BMR runs at about the same pace. Of course their are specialcases that’ll break the bell curve like individuals who burn calories abnormally fast and it’sdifficult for them to put on weight. (I’m very jealous of those people)The opposite effect can also occur with strangely slow metabolisms, but for the most part,everyone is in the middle, running at nearly the same pace when you don’t take into accountphysical activity lifestyle levels. Your physical activities for the day are the other part of thiscalorie-burning equation.There Are Just Too Many Factors To Get A Perfectly Accurate Figure(For Your Daily Burn)Determining how many calories someone burns in a day is insanely complicated because thereare almost too many factors and variables to take into account. Ultimately, your daily calories
  2. 2. burned is decided by a combination of your BMR (using your current weight) and your dailyphysical activity.If you do a quick search, you can find a number of those calories burned calculator sites on theweb that you can visit to type in all sorts of data about what you did during the day and they’llspit out a number that may or may not be relatively close.Most of those web apps are made with simple JavaScript that adds up values based on variousfitness rules like: 1. How many calories in a pound? A pound of muscle burns about 6 calories each day. 2. A pound of fat burns about 2 calories each day. 3. Walking burns between 80 - 100 calories per mile. 4. If you’re male, your result should be between 2,000 - 2,400 calories a day. 5. If you’re female, your result should be between 1,800 - 2,100 calories a day.The first 3 rules have enough research to probably be referred to as facts. I’m not so sure about4 & 5.But after you take the time to remember everything that you did, try to figure out how manyjumping jacks you did, and how many steps you took around the office...it’s almost not worth itafter I explain the simple way to get just as close of an estimate.BMR Equations And Formulas - Complicated, But There’s A SimplerWay...While I do have to give credit to those calorie burning apps for... well... existing...so people canuse them, I only hope that they’re loosely based on one of the established BMR equations orformulas instead of just “adding up all the calories”.The first three equations that really attempted to answer the question "How many calories do Iburn in a day?" are the Harris-Benedict, Mifflin, and Katch-McArdle equations. All three took intoaccount the persons weight, height, and age, but it was the Katch-McArdle formula that wasfirst to integrate lean body mass into the equation.Now, for an imaginary woman who is 55 years old, 130 lbs (59kg), 5’ 6” (168cm) tall, and 30%body fat, these three formulas would produce the following results: ● Harris - Benedict Equation = 1272 calories ● Mifflin Equation = 1204 calories ● Katch-McArdle Formula = 1263 caloriesSo, for this imaginary woman to maintain her body weight, she needs to consume around 1246calories each day. That’s what her body demands based on her current stats. (Her stats arealso imaginary)The Simple Formula To Answer “How Many Calories Do I Burn In ADay?”
  3. 3. Now I know that I’ve been dangling a carrot in front of your face up to this point, but nowI’ll reveal how you can formulate the answer to your calorie-burning question. A quick, yetsomewhat accurate, estimate of your BMR can be done by taking your current weight in lbs andmultiplying by 10.Yea, it’s really as simple as that. You’re probably looking at the average of the three equationvalues (1246) and the value from this simpler version (1300) and thinking “Hey, that’s 54calories off! This isn’t accurate at all!”Calm down people. What you need to remember is that anything having to do with measuringthe speed or power of one’s metabolism isn’t going to be anything better than an educatedguess.At least with this method, you’re within 50-100 calories and you don’t even need a calculator.Your Next Question Is Probably “How Many Calories Should I Eat ToLose Weight?”Well the simple answer is less than the number you generated. The number of calories that youburn each day is how many calories it takes to maintain your current weight. This is how muchenergy your body needs in order to continue sustaining at your current weight.If you increase this amount, you’ll gain weight, and if you decrease this amount, you’ll loseweight. It’s actually that simple. The tricky part is coming up with a good plan to decrease yourcaloric intake without sending you spiraling into insanity or some sort of eating disorder. Youmight hear people ask the question like "How many carbs per day to lose weight?", but its allabout the calories. Dont make things more complicated by picking apart the food groups whenyou really need to focus on frequency and portion size.When you decrease your caloric intake, you’re actually creating a calorie deficit. You can, ofcourse, do this with any combination of dieting and/or exercising. Personally, I like to do both forthe fastest results. And I’ve found that the quickest and most sustainable way for me to reducemy calories is by fasting two or more times each week and using the tricking your metabolismapproach.My fasting strategies are based from Eat Stop Eat, and I think it’s great because it’s atechnique that I don’t really have to think about. With normal dieting, you have to be concernedwith portions of every meal, and eating only “healthy foods”, and I just get fed up with it. Withfasting, I just cut out calories for a 24-hour span a few times each week, and I lose weight. (AndI’m still losing it)Knowing how many calories you burn each day is the first step to losing weight.
