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, doing sitting tasks at a 2.5 MET value, burns 2.5 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual doing sitting tasks for 30 minutes expends the following:

(2.5 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (30 min/60 min) = 87.5 Kcal.

2.5 is the value in METs for doing sitting tasks.
