    The answer to this question depends on how much you weigh and how hard you stroke ;-). The more you weigh, the more mass you have to pull through the water and the more calories you burn/min. Obviously the harder you work, the more calories… Source:

    It depends on your weight!!! the more you weight the easier it is to burn calories!!! my height is 51!5 and I weight 120lb my program says that if I breast stroke or free style for an hour I will burn 8!77 calories per minute, losing 526 calories per hour!!! Yes it does matter which stroke you use, because each stroke tones your body differently or different strokes can get your heart pump more!!! like if you back stroke or just swim for fun you dont lose as much calories, I would probably lose only around 340!!! I would say butterfly and the two that you mention burns the most calories
