Calories Burned At Rest

The average person burns 75-100 calories resting or doing nothing. Standing or fidgeting doesn’t count as it burns more calories per hour. In round figures a person doing nothing will burn approximately one calorie per hour per kilogram of bodyweight (a half calorie per pound). If properly sleeping (as opposed to short naps), they will burn fewer calories per hour.

On an average day Men age 17-25 should burn around 1700 calories in a 24 hour period and Men 25-35 a theoretical 1620 calories over 24 hours. Women in the 17-21 age range, on average burn 1620 calories with Women 25-35 burning 1540.

Over 35s Men over 35 should burn around 1530 calories in a 24 hour period and Women over 35 around 1460 over 24 hours.

Over 60s Men over 60 should burn 1450 calories in 24 hours with Women over 60 burning 1380.

What is Average? Everyone is different. More accuracy can be found by referring to your weight below. Calorie burn generally declines as we get older but not always. People who stay active will often keep the higher burn rate as they age.
