## 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, watching tv at a 6 MET value, burns 6 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual watching tv for 5 minutes expends the following:

(6 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (5 min/60 min) = 7.6 Kcal.

6 is the value in METs for watching tv.

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
