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
- your weight
- 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 uphill at 3 mph (1 to 5% grade) at a 5.3 MET value, burns 5.3 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.
A 70 kg individual walking uphill at 3 mph (1 to 5% grade) for 10 minutes expends the following:
(5.3 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (10 min/60 min) = 61.8 Kcal.
5.3 is the value in METs for walking uphill at 3 mph (1 to 5% grade).
