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, running at 12 mph at a 18.3 MET value, burns 18.3 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual running at 12 mph for 40 minutes expends the following:

(18.3 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (40 min/60 min) = 854.0 Kcal.

18.3 is the value in METs for running at 12 mph.

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
