The benefits resulting from physical activity of any generally ranging are absolutely certain and proved by a series of studies conducted worldwide by scientists and health professionals for several years now.
Many of these studies have shown that regular physical activity, for example 20 or 30 minutes walking or light jog done almost every day, ensure some physical and mental health, and lower the risk of diseases related primarily to the absolute sedentary.
Physical activity and related burning of calories allows the body to maintain a balance between the daily energy intake and energy expended by our bodies for maintaining its vital functions.
This tool allows you to calculate the expenditure in terms of Kcalories due to various physical activities that can be selected from the pulldown menu in this form.
Enter your weight, minutes of activities to be undertaken and select a sport, and the calculator will show you in a moment number of calories consumed.
As you can see, the only data required by the calculator about the physical structure is the weight. This, however, consists of several parts such as lean mass, body fat, bone, ecc. and, of consequence, the percentage of each of these components may vary considerably from person to person.
It is indeed certain that the muscles during exercise, as well as in condition of resting, burn much more energy than the body fat, so, a very muscular or very fat individual, could see the calorie expenditure calculated with this tool more or less 'wrong'.
However, for all those people who have normal body proportions, the result provided by the calculator can hardly be 'trusted'.
Out of curiosity:
- Basically, calorie (cal) is the amount of energy we need to up the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree Celsius. Anyway, we use the large Calorie (1000 small calories or one kilocalorie, so-called kcal). Large Calorie are used for the total amount of food energy (calories per gram). Nutritional requirements or intakes are often expressed in calories per day.
- There is no need to calculate every time the calories in every food you need to eat. Nutrition facts label are there for it. You can find them in label required on most packaged food. Every country also releases some guides for general educational purposes.
Purposes are sometimes very different. Every country answers to specific needs, tied to the specific country, as the way we burn Kcal depends from many factors, including weather and temperature.
If you need furthermore information about calories and physical activities, we strongly recommend you to consult your doctor or other qualified health professional before starting any dietary or sport activity.
