How 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.
Keeping your blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides in check are important for good heart health. Know your numbers and have them checked regularly.
The JOI Sports Center has a program to lose weight and become more fit. The program can help orthopedic patients who need to lose weight before surgery. Along with treating an injury, the Sports Center at JOI also provides services for athletes to improve their performance in their sport.
