The human body burns calories all the time, even in our sleep or while sitting and watching movies. But several factors affect how many calories are burned, such as the intensity of exercise, your height, and weight. Use our calculators to calculate the estimated calories your body burns during different exercises, sports, and other day-to-day common activities.
Burning calories and your heart rate
We burn calories faster during exercise, and our heart rate rises when we workout harder, and therefore burn more calories. Maintaining vigorous exercise for lengthy periods, on the other hand, is more challenging. The ideal heart rate for calorie burning is around 65 percent of your maximal heart rate (roughly speaking, 220 minus your age). Learn more about the ideal heart rate during exercise.
Calculate your BMI (Body Mass Index)
The BMI (Body Mass Index) is also called the Quetelet index. BMI estimates body fat based on an individual’s weight and height. It is usually used to determine whether someone is underweight, has a healthy weight, or is overweight. Use our BMI Calculator or Reverse BMI Calculator to find your weight with a certain BMI.
