A pound of body fat is equal to 3500 calories.
This means that if you burn an extra 500 calories every day of the week, you should lose 1 pound of fat per week.
Now if we only knew how to burn an extra 500 calories per day…
Bicycling, leisure, Slower than 10 mph, to work or for pleasure
Daily activity for 500 calories:
- Average American Male: 115 minutes, or almost 2 hours
- Average American Female: 135 minutes, or 2 and 1/4 hours
To accurately calculate your individual time:
Multiply (Avg. male or female wt.) x (Avg. male or female time) and divide that by your weight.
- Ex. 220 lb. male: 191 lbs x 115 min / 220 lbs = 100 minutes
- Ex. 122 lb. female: 164 lbs x 135 min / 122 lbs = 181 minutes
My calculations are based upon the CDC’s conclusion that the average American man weighs 191 lbs. and the average American woman weighs 164 lbs.
