## 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 8.5 mph at a 12.4 MET value, burns 12.4 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual running at 8.5 mph for 40 minutes expends the following:

(12.4 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (40 min/60 min) = 578.7 Kcal.

12.4 is the value in METs for running at 8.5 mph.
