## How to calculate calories (burned)

The number of calories you burn while exercising is dependent on:

• the exercise you do
• 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, walking at 3.0 mph (moderately, carrying objects less than 25 lbs) at a 4.5 MET value, burns 4.5 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual walking at 3.0 mph (moderately, carrying objects less than 25 lbs) for 60 minutes expends the following:

(4.5 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (60 min/60 min) = 315.0 Kcal.

4.5 is the value in METs for walking at 3.0 mph (moderately, carrying objects less than 25 lbs).

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
