## 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, running at 4 mph at a 6 MET value, burns 6 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual running at 4 mph for 30 minutes expends the following:

(6 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (30 min/60 min) = 210.0 Kcal.

6 is the value in METs for running at 4 mph.

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
