If you're using a daily calorie counter, don't forget about the many calories that you burn everyday. Exercise matters too! Whether you're an active person or want to be more active, it's important to know how many calories you're burning.

Plug-in your weight and duration, and this calories burned calculator will show you the calories for over 250 activities and exercises. Plus, you can see calories burned for additional time intervals -- a unique and helpful feature!

Quick Facts About Calories Burned:
  • The more you weigh, the more calories you will burn. So if two people do the exact same activity at the exact same pace, the person that weighs more will burn more calories.
  • Calculating your calories burned is not an exact science. It's hard to know exactly how many calories you burn, because there are so many variables -- your level of fitness, intensity of exercise, slope changes, weather conditions, etc.
  • It's generally accepted that it takes 3,500 calories to burn one pound of body fat. In theory, if you burn an additional 500 calories per day (without eating more) you should lose one pound per week.
  • Using a calorie counter? Be sure to count calories burned and figure out what your daily calorie balance is by subtracting calories burned from consumed. Consider calorie counter software to do the work for you.
