## 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 persons body weight. This statement can be expressed as the following formula:

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

So, a 70 kg individual hiking uphill at 3 mph (1 to 5% grade) for 15 minutes expends the following:

(5.3 METs x 70 kg) x (15 min/60 min) = 92.8 Kcal.

Notes:

• 5.3 is the value in METs for hiking uphill at 3 mph (1 to 5% grade)
• 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'
