## 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, running at 20 km|h at a 19.3 MET value, burns 19.3 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual running at 20 km|h for 10 minutes expends the following:

(19.3 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (10 min/60 min) = 225.2 Kcal.

19.3 is the value in METs for running at 20 km|h.

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
