Calories Burned Watching Television

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 fugures 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.
