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, 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 60 minutes expends the following:

(5.3 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (60 min/60 min) = 371.0 Kcal.

5.3 is the value in METs for walking uphill at 3 mph (1 to 5% grade).
