Sports mean also calorie burning. How larger the effort is how larger the calorie combustion will be. It is also that a heavier person more energy consumed, because these have more to move. Running a marathon costs between 2500 and 3000 kcal. A bicycle excursion of 4 hours in a spicy tempo almost the same. Looking to a film: 250 kcal. For further information: Sport nutrition.
