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 at 10-11.9 mph (leisure, slow, light effort) at a 6.8 MET value, burns 6.8 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual bicycling at 10-11.9 mph (leisure, slow, light effort) for 60 minutes expends the following:

(6.8 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (60 min/60 min) = 476.0 Kcal.

6.8 is the value in METs for bicycling at 10-11.9 mph (leisure, slow, light effort).

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
