Someone weighting 70 Kg or 154.3 lb bicycling (stationary bike, 30-50 watts, very light to light effort) burns 163.3 calories in 40 minutes. This value is roughtly equivalent to 0.05 pound or 3/4 ounce or 21.2 grams of mass (fat and/or muscle).

• bicycling (stationary bike, 30-50 watts, very light to light effort) 3 times a week for 40 minutes will burn 0.56 pound or 0.25 Kg a month.
• bicycling (stationary bike, 30-50 watts, very light to light effort) 5 times a week for 40 minutes will burn 0.93 pound or 0.42 Kg a month.
• bicycling (stationary bike, 30-50 watts, very light to light effort) every day for 40 minutes will burn 1.31 pound or 0.59 Kg a month.

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
• 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, bicycling (stationary bike, 30-50 watts, very light to light effort) at a 3.5 MET value, burns 3.5 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual bicycling (stationary bike, 30-50 watts, very light to light effort) for 40 minutes expends the following:

(3.5 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (40 min/60 min) = 163.3 Kcal.

3.5 is the value in METs for bicycling (stationary bike, 30-50 watts, very light to light effort).

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
