A little while ago, I gave you 10 ways to burn 1 Pound of Fat. In that post, I reminded you that…

  • A pound of body fat is equal to 3500 calories,
  • There are 7 days in the week,
  • And that if my Grade 3 math skills were up to snuff AND you burn an extra 500 calories every day of the week,
  • You should burn 1 pound of body fat per week,

And then we went looking for a few new ways we could burn an extra 500 calories per day…

Well…here we go again…

Hatha Yoga

  • It will take the average American Male (191 lbs) 231 minutes, or almost 4 hours of downward dogging  to burn 500 calories
  • It will take the average American Female (164 lbs) 269 minutes, or 2 and 1/3 hours of yoga to burn 500 calories

To find out how long it will take YOU to burn 500 calories…

  • take your weight (ex 200 lbs),
  • divide by the average American weight – male or female ( ex 200 lb male / 191 lbs = 1.047),
  • and multiply the result by the average time that I calculated (ex 1.047 x 231 minutes = 242 minutes)
