I don't understand how I can burn more calories sitting than resting, what's the difference? Just trying to understand burn more calories than I eat? Exercise even light walking is better for burning calories than watching TV, but everyone talks of counting everything you do when calculating calories out???

Resting I take as lying down or reclining

Sitting you have to hold your self up in a chair which I guess burns more calories
