Burn Calories By Clicking This Link, REALLY

 


Ha... But they say you can, just need to click 5000 times to BURN 7 Calories!

This might be THE laziest form of exercise we've ever heard of.

Researchers wanted to figure out how many calories you burn each time you CLICK YOUR MOUSE.

Based on the average volume and weight of fingers, they calculated that every time you click your mouse, you burn the equivalent of 0.00142 calories.

The average office worker clicks their mouse roughly 5,000 times per day.  So that's the equivalent of . . . a whopping SEVEN CALORIES burned per day.  That's almost one whole baby carrot!

For comparison's sake, a Whopper from Burger King has 670 calories . . . and it would take about 472,000 clicks of your mouse to burn one off.

Good Luck!
