Not sure if anyone's thought of this. But you know how you do so much of an activity, and you burn a certain amount of calories? Is there any "certain amount" of fat grams that you burn along with those calories, and how would you calculate that?

There are many attempts to quantify this scattered all over the net.
None of it is very scientific though.
A good rule of thumb might be walking, jogging or running takes about 100 calories/mile.
As far as WHAT the body burns, that is highly variable and depens on what is available; a very fat person might burn more fat. Hard short term sprinting tends to burn more sugar and protein...long easy workouts tend to burn more fat.
Heart likes to burn fat...muscles and brain like sugar (glucose) far better.
But it's almost impossible to quantify these effects with precision.
i've heard that the amount of calories you burn depends on how hard the activity is for you.....a calorie is just a unit of energy, so if it takes you less energy to do a certain thing, then you're going to burn less calories doing it. for example, if i run a mile, and my mom runs a mile, she'd probably burn twice as many calories because it takes her twice the energy it takes me (explains why my mom lost 25 pounds and i lost 10...i swear we were doing the same thing!!) so, the "calorie burning calculators, IMO.....arn't going to be accurate, it just varies from person to person.
thats right, no two people are the same even next of kin.
but running/walking a mile will help you burn calories and if you keep it up that mile will turn into two miles and so on.
I believe that the more you exercise the more calories you have to burn? if that makes a lick of sense.
when I first started out exercising I would burn maybe a 100 calories,and I thought that would just kill me, but I just stayed after it and its a simple rotine now to burn 400- 450- 500 calories at just one exercise.
also the more you lose the harder it is to burn calories..anyway thats the way it is with me.
I use to walk only a mile now I can walk 4 or 5 miles eazy.
so you see the more weight you lose the harder it is to lose and burn calories even if you eat healthy and exercise...theres no inbetween or stopping.
