A calorie, by definition, is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of one-gram of water by one-degree Celsius. Our body, however, stores calories which it then burns to form heat – or energy – enabling the body to function. Every single activity over a 24-hour period expends energy, and that includes sleeping! In fact, we burn quite a healthy 382 calories by sleeping for 7 hours.
This infographic is an eye-opener on the various ways that calories get burnt – for example, a 15-minute shower burns 62 calories! Use this guide to plan a healthy lifestyle.
