How to Calculate How Many Calories you Burn (while walking or running a mile)
Fitness Tips Continued: 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.
