Ah, the glorious days of high school—where hormones run wild, backpacks double as fashion statements, and energy levels are off the charts. But have you ever wondered just how many calories those energetic adolescents burn during a typical school day?
According to a study conducted by the Institute of Whirlwind Activities (not a real institute, but it should be), the average high-schooler burns approximately 500 to 700 calories a day. That's equivalent to doing the Macarena for 3 hours straight or running away from homework for an entire afternoon.
From dodging hallway traffic to participating in P.E. classes and extracurricular activities, these teenage tornadoes are constantly on the move. So, the next time you see a group of hyperactive teenagers, give them a round of applause for their impressive calorie-burning skills. And maybe even offer them a snack to refuel their energy reserves.
