can cooking be included in the list of excercises? i don't know how many calories you burn! it should be a bit more than just standing!it should definitely be comsidered an important activity worth including in the list!

Depends if you taste all the time! I reckon that would cancel many of the benefits.

hahaha! yes maybe you're right! but with moderate tasting i think it has to count for some exercise! they've already put standing but with cooking you also move a bit too, your arms at the very least! i spend at least 1h cooking everyday!

I do several hours cooking a day but I never record it as I think the calorie burning on this site is greatly exaggerated. Just off to make 100 fairy cakes for our Walk for Life sponsored walk tomorrow. Important question - how many can I eat if I walk the 8 km quite quickly?

yes i agree, i usually only enter aerobic exercise like running or swimming! but since i do spend a lot of time cooking it would be nice if it was included!

I agree. First day using this website and it was already on my mind - how many calories used cooking? And I consider time cooking a very important activity in the world of Eating Right.
