### Calories / Fat Burned Calculator

Quote of the day...

By using the calories burned calculator, you just need to fill some data and get the value of calories burned in Kcal.

## 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, bike riding at a 8 MET value, burns 8 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual bike riding for 30 minutes expends the following:

(8 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (30 min/60 min) = 280.0 Kcal.

8 is the value in METs for bike riding.

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
