How Many Btus Does the Human Body Generate?

Answer

The average human body generates a minimum rate of about 250 BTU's per hour while we are asleep. When we are awake, but sedentary, it produces an average of about 400 BTU's per hour. Of course, if we are moving around, working or exercising, we produce much more.
