The Energy Balancer is a unique interactive tool that highlights the importance of regular physical activity for burning off the 'energy' we obtain from food and drink. Compare nutritious food options with unhealthy choices to see how this affects the amount of activity you need to do. You can also contrast vastly different activities, from computer games to cross country skiing, to learn how exercise intensity has an impact on energy consumption.
Energy expenditure gives an estimate of the energy consumed as food or drink that is burned off during specific physical activities. Use this calculator to estimate how much energy you use during a variety of activities, sports and exercises.
