Question: To lose weight, one's output (calories) should be greater than intake, correct? Often, one sees the amount of calories burned during exercise (e.g. ~100 calories/mile walking), but what about adl (activities of daily living) e.g. vacuuming, mowing the lawn, brushing teeth, standing up etc. - how many calories does one use up doing these? James
Answer: Dear James, A good estimation for your total caloric daily requirement can be determined by calculating your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and multiplying that by your activity level. Please see my Articles section for the calculations and activity level factors.
