## 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, standing at a 1.3 MET value, burns 1.3 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual standing for 10 minutes expends the following:

(1.3 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (10 min/60 min) = 15.2 Kcal.

1.3 is the value in METs for standing.

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
