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, hand sewing at a 1.8 MET value, burns 1.8 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.
A 70 kg individual hand sewing for 20 minutes expends the following:
(1.8 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (20 min/60 min) = 42.0 Kcal.
1.8 is the value in METs for hand sewing.
(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
