Best Answer

Scientists say the average 35 year old female will burn 46 calories an hour sitting at a desk, whereas the same female would burn 50 calories per hour sleeping. The numbers vary depending on your sex, weight, age, height and metabolic rate. But the numbers are fairly similar. Hope this helps.
