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, kayaking at a 6 MET value, burns 6 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual kayaking for 40 minutes expends the following:

(6 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (40 min/60 min) = 233.3 Kcal.

6 is the value in METs for kayaking.

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
