David’s Dulcimer Diet

Keep in mind I’m assuming playing mountain dulcimer is equal in effort expended to playing an acoustical guitar, and these are all estimates/averages.

Calories burned Music playing, guitar (mountain dulcimer), classical, folk(sitting) is approximately 145 an hour (2.4 calories per minute).

It is well known that a person needs to burn (or not consume) 3,500 calories to lose a pound.

145 calories burned playing dulcimer an hour a day X 30 days = 4,350 calories burned a month. That equals to 1.24 pounds a month.

 145 calories burned playing dulcimer an hour a day X 365 days = 52,200 calories burned a year. That equals to almost 15 pounds a year. [52,200/3,500= 14.9 lbs].

Warning: consult your physician or musicologist before starting any dulcimer diet
