How Can I Burn 300 Calories?

My question is How can I burn 300 calories fast? What is the best method to burn 300 calories so people can still eat cake, but not gain weight. What exercise is most effective for burning calories? What can you do to speed up your metabolism?  Alyse E.

Hi Alyse,

This cool site lets you enter your own weight to calculate calories burned in various activities.
The more you weigh, the more calories you burn; it takes energy to move more mass.

If you run or walk about 3 miles you'll burn close to 300 calories. Walk a 20-minute mile and it will take an hour; run a 10-minute mile and burn 300 calories in 30 minutes.

One good workout is circuit weight training. You burn calories working out, then burn more even when you aren't exercising since you'll be building up muscle mass. Muscle burns more calories than fat, so keeping fit means you'll burn more calories than a person of the same weight with less muscle, regardless of whether you are exercising.

PS You could also try having a smaller piece of cake ;)
