## 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 mph at a 11.8 MET value, burns 11.8 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual running at 8 mph for 60 minutes expends the following:

(11.8 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (60 min/60 min) = 826.0 Kcal.

11.8 is the value in METs for running at 8 mph.
