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 4.5 mph at a 7.4 MET value, burns 7.4 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual running at 4.5 mph for 60 minutes expends the following:

(7.4 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (60 min/60 min) = 518.0 Kcal.

7.4 is the value in METs for running at 4.5 mph.

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
