A typ­i­cal ath­lete is said to burn around 7,000 to 10,000 calo­ries dur­ing the course of an Iron­man – the equiv­a­lent of 50 Krispy Kreme dough­nuts – at a rate of 500 calo­ries per hour. Weight loss is very hard to pin­point due to cli­mate, body type and more, but it’s around 2-4% of body weight.
