Cool Calorie Calculator

Maybe last time you ordered a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks you actually asked for the "whipped cream" on your drink because you were feeling decadent. Now you are feeling guilty, and you want to know what you can do to burn those additional calories. If that is the case you should check out the Calories Burned Calculator over at iVillage. The calculator has almost every activity you could think of, and it is interesting to play around with.

For instance, I will burn more than double the amount of calories by playing the piano instead of reading in bed. But by pushing a plane in and out of a hanger (not that I do this much, but now I am kind of inspired) I will burn two and a half times more calories than if I am just sitting around playing the piano. Maybe I need to switch hobbies?

I suggest you check it out. Hopefully, when you see the amount of calories you will burn raking leaves, you might actually want to do your yard work.

My job burns over 1000 calories! This probably explains why I don't gain any weight despite the high amounts of chocolate in my diet...:)

Thank you for the tip! That is the best, most detailed calorie calculator I have ever used! I love it. There are so many choices and the levels of activity within the categories are so descriptive. Fabulous! Bookmarked!

This could be really addictive! Perfect timing, too. Last night I spent an hour cleaning the house (quite quickly) and wondered how many calories it burned. More than I thought!

I do Weight Watchers and Ivillage is a great site for people who count their points. I use the calorie counter everyday.
