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 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 scuba diving for 5 minutes expends the following:

(7 METs x 70 kg) x (5 min/60 min) = 40.8 Kcal.


(*) MET means 'metabolic equivalent'
