How to calculate calories (burned)
The number of calories you burn while exercising is dependent on:
- the exercise you do
- your weight
- the time spent doing the activity
By multiplying the body weight in kg by the MET (*) value and duration of activity, you can estimate the energy expenditure in Kcal specific to a persons body weight. In this example, watching television (sitting) at a 1.3 MET value, burns 1.3 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.
A 70 kg individual watching television (sitting) for 30 minutes expends the following:
(1.3 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (30 min/60 min) = 45.5 Kcal.
1.3 is the value in METs for watching television (sitting).
(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
