There are a number of factors that affect how many calories are burnt on any given day.
These factors are wide and varied and generally distinguish how much energy is needed by the body each day.
The factors that affect daily calorie burn include:
Age, sex, weight, height, body fat percentage, how active you are during work, how much you exercise each week and what type of activity.
These factors are the main determinants in generating the amount of calories you would burn roughly each day.
Weight, body fat percentage and activity levels can be changed to some extent to ensure your calorie equation is in a positive state. Essentially if we move more, our body needs more energy so we burn more calories.
