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, swimming (leisurely) at a 6 MET value, burns 6 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.
A 70 kg individual swimming (leisurely) for 20 minutes expends the following:
(6 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (20 min/60 min) = 140.0 Kcal.
6 is the value in METs for swimming (leisurely).
(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
