Calorie Burned Calculator

Select the Activity and get the Metabolic Equivalent (MET) for it. Enter your weight in lbs or kg and duration of the activity to find the Calories Burned (kcal)

=

## What is METs and how is it related to Activity-Calorie conversion?

• METs stands for 'Metabolic Equivalents'
• The Metabolic Equivalent is in terms of Kilocalories and related to weight and duration
• Every Activity has a Metabolic Equivalent value which is measured in kcal/kg/hr
• For example, Resting state METs is 1. It means we burn 1 kcal/kg/hr in resting state.
• Walking, Running, Jogging, Swimming all these activities have different Metabolic Equivalent value.
• The number of calories burned for any activity is determined using the METs value of the activity

## What is the Formula for Activity to Calories Conversion?

To find the number of calories burned for a given activity, multiply the Metabolic equivalent value of that activity with duration in hours and with the weight of the person in kg

Calorie Burnt = Duration in hr * Weight in kg * MET

• 1 MET = 1 kcal/kg/hr which is the energy burnt at resting state (Resting Metabolic Rate). Based on the activity, duraton and weight, you can find the MET value and compute the Calories burnt

• Weight: 200 pounds, Activity: Dancing, Duration: 100 mins and Met: 5

Calories Burnt = 100 mins in hr * 200 pounds in kg * 5 met

Calories Burnt = (100/60) x 90.7 x 5 = 755.83 kcal

• Weight: 70 kg, Activity: Walking, Duration: 60 mins and Met: 7

Calories Burnt = 60 mins in hr * 70 kg * 7 met

Calories Burnt = (60/60) x 70 x 7 = 490 kcal

• Weight: 150 kg, Activity: Bicycling, Duration: 120 mins and Met: 14

Calories Burnt = 120 mins in hr * 150 kg * 14 met

Calories Burnt = (120/60) x 150 x 14 = 4200 kcal
