## 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 MET (*) value by the body weight in kg and the duration of the activity, you can estimate the energy expenditure in Kcal specific to a person's body weight. This statement can be expressed as the following formula:

Calories burned = METs x weight x (time / 60)

In this example, swimming (leisurely) at a 6 MET value, burns Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

So, a 70 kg individual swimming (leisurely) for 30 minutes expends the following:

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

Notes:

• 6 is the value in METs for swimming (leisurely)
• The time unit is expressed in minutes
• The mass (weight) unit is expressed in kilograms
• We divide the time by 60 (min) because the MET unit uses hour.

(*) MET means 'metabolic equivalent'
