How to calculate calories (burned)

The number of calories you burn while exercising is dependent on:

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, playing basketball (wheelchair) at a 7.8 MET value, burns Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

So, a 70 kg individual playing basketball (wheelchair) for 30 minutes expends the following:

(7.8 METs x 70 kg) x (30 min/60 min) = 273.0 Kcal.

Notes:

(*) MET means 'metabolic equivalent'
