can this be right?

if im 175 lbs (im actually bigger than that), and i watch TV for 10 min, I burn 14 calories. Thats 84 calories an hour. Okay, lets say Im awake 17 hours. Does that mean if i watch TV ALL DAY, that I'll burn 1428 calories, which comes out to a caloric need of about 3438 (my BMR is 2010) per day? This seems impossible, or not? Someone please clear some things up for me, thanks.

Re: can this be right?

Your body is consistenly burning calories even when you're doing nothing. What your specific caloric needs are depend upon your individual body, though.
