Rate of energy expenditure for a 70-kg person during different types of activity

Range Table - link kcal/hour
Organism Human Homo sapiens
Reference Lauralee Sherwood, Human Physiology: From Cells to Systems, Wadsworth publishing company 3rd edition 1997, p.603 table 17-1
Comments "The metabolic rate and consequently the amount of heat produced vary depending on a variety of factors, such as exercise, food intake, shivering, and anxiety. Increased skeletal muscle activity is the factor that can increase metabolic rate to the greatest extent. Even slight increases in muscle tone notably elevate the metabolic rate, and various levels of physical activity alter energy expenditure and heat production markedly (table 17-1)."
