hmmm......do this 5 times a day and burn 500 calories. 10 times = 1,000 calories. There are 5 commercial breaks in a 1 hour tv episode. Burn 500 calories while watching your favorite show. Now, that sounds like a plan!
Because calories equals about 1 pound kilogram) of fat, you need to burn calories more than you take in to lose 1 pound. So, in general, if you cut 500 calories from your typical diet each day, you'd lose about 1 pound a week calories x 7 days = calories)
