To calculate how many calories you burn while walking or running a mile, use the following calculations: Multiply your body weight (in pounds) by .57 for calories burned walking 1 mile.
Multiple your body weight (in pounds) by .72 for calories burned running 1 mile. For example, if you weigh 200 lbs, you will burn about 114 calories (200 X .57) when you walk a mile,
and about 144 calories (200 x .72) when you run a mile.
