    Here are 5 ways to burn maximum calories while playing Pokemon Go

    Keep Walking
    If you’ve added Pokémon GO to your daily routine, you’re probably already walking more and, therefore, burning more calories. The average person will expend about 100 calories per mile walked. If you burn an additional 500 calories (or walk roughly five miles) every day, you can expect to lose about a pound per week.

    Up Your Speed
    If you want to score more Pokémon and calories burned for your time, you've got to move faster. Since you cover more ground in less time when you walk briskly, jog, or run, you'll burn more calories in the same amount of time.

    Take The High Road
    Once you get your speed up, look for an incline. Working your way up a hill burns more cals because you're also traveling vertically while moving forward, says. And to work your way uphill, you have to produce more force, which fires up more muscle fibers. That also leads to more torched cals.

    Incorporate Weights
    Now it's time to work in resistance. Holding extra weight while you walk engages your upper body and core muscles more than you would walking without them. Again, more muscles activated means more calories burned.

    Player Beware
    While clocking miles to catch 'em all can get you closer to your weight-loss goals, nutrition plays an even bigger role in weight loss. You can exercise as much as you want, but if you eat more calories than you burn, you won’t lose weight.
