How many calories does the average person burn watching T.V. for an hour?
Good news, Netflix bingers! Watching TV for an hour- and literally, doing nothing else- burns about 75 calories for the average person at an average weight and height. Even better news? Eating for an hour burns about 140 calories. So if you are having a Game of Thrones marathon whilst eating pizza all Saturday long, (say 9 am to midnight) you're burning about 3,225 calories. Puts a whole new perspective on the word "marathon," doesn't it? Source: Livestrong
