15 Ways to Burn 150 Calories

This chart lists some activities you can do to burn 150 calories. These are approximate figures, based on a body weight of 150 pounds. If you weigh less than 150 pounds, it'll take you longer to burn the same number of calories. The opposite is true if you weigh more than 150 pounds.

Activity Time

Biking, 6 mph - 38 minutes
Biking, 12 mph - 22 minutes
Horse-Back-riding was not in this chart, however, I found this: I weigh 145 lbs. If I just ride my horse at a walk for 60 minutes I will burn 165 calories. If I trot my horse for 60 minutes I will burn 426 calories. What a delightful way to burn calories!!! The horse does all the work and gets exercise, too. I love this sport. Remember that does not include all the grooming, tacking, bringing your horse in from the pasture or paddock, etc.
Jogging, 5.5 mph - 12 minutes
Running, 10 mph - 7 minutes
