## 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, playing musical instruments at a 2 MET value, burns 2 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual playing musical instruments for 10 minutes expends the following:

(2 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (10 min/60 min) = 23.3 Kcal.

2 is the value in METs for playing musical instruments.

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
