# Calorie Burned Calculator

The Calorie Burned Calculator is used to estimate the number of calories burned after exercise. It's very simple, you only need input your weight and exercise duration. For a more accurate calorie burned calculator, please view our Calorie Burned By Heart Rate. It can help to determine your more precise calorie consumptions by specify heart beat rate.

## Using the Calorie Burned Calculator

The calculator is based on the activities Metabolic Equivalent (MET). MET estimates how much energy an activity burns as a multiple of an individuals resting metabolic rate (RMR). When we rest the MET is 1, and 5 METs means 5 times the energy than in a resting state.

#### How to do the Calorie Burn Calculator?

The calorie burn calculator shows the number of calories burned per day. For example, a person will enter his or her weight, and enter the number of minutes he or she spends on different activities. These activities range from workout activities to mowing lawns to sleeping, sexual intercourse and weaving cloth. Therefore, a person weighing 122 lbs who does 40 minutes of high impact aerobic activity, cooks for 60 minutes, lifts general weights for 20 minutes and sleeps for six hours burns 473 calories a day. A person who wishes to lose 1 kg of weight must burn 7000 calories more than the normal calories consumed on a daily basis. If a person wishes to maintain the same weight, then that personâ€™s calorie intake should be the same amount of calories as expended.

#### The Table of MET for Each Exercise Level

Be minded it is important not to add the calories here to your BMR result, because the energy expenditure here includes your resting metabolic rate for the duration of the exercise.

#### What are Calories?

Calories are present in every food consumed. Fatty foods and sugary foods contain the most number of calories. Energy which can be produced through the digestive process is measured by calories. The body requires energy for carrying out daily activities. However, most often, people consume too many calories resulting in fat deposit. Consumption of too many calories with only a minimum amount of calories burned results in weight gain. Being overweight increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and other medical conditions. Therefore, in order to lose weight, a person must consume fewer calories than the amount of calorie expended. This will cause the body to break down the fat layer to meet the calorie deficit.

#### How to Burn Calories?

There are so many methods of burning calories. However, calories are burned even when sleeping. This is because the body requires calories in the form of energy to function properly. For example, the heart requires energy to pump blood throughout the body and the immune system requires energy to fight diseases. However, if the intake is more than the output, weight gain is guaranteed. Therefore, in order to burn calories, one must increase activity levels. The more activity engaged in, the more calories burned.

#### How many Calories to Eat a Day

The number of calories to eat per day depends on the number of calories burned per day. For example, an adolescent boy requires far more of a calorie intake than an adult. This is because; young people burn more calories a day as their metabolism is high. As a person ages, the metabolism slows down, causing fewer calorie burn. Therefore, age is also taken into consideration when identifying the number of calories to be burned in a day. The calorie intake needs of women differ also from the calorie intake of men. Therefore, all persons hoping to lose weight should obtain their Basal Metabolic rate before they use the calorie burn calculator. This provides an approximate figure of the total number of calories burned when body is at rest, which helps plan the diet and exercise regimen for weight loss or gain.

Gaining weight is easy. However, losing it is not. Whether your weight goals are to lose or gain weight, it needs to be done in a healthy manner. Binge eating and binge dieting harm the body and does not help in the long run. Therefore, gaining knowledge of the proper methods of weight loss or weight gain is beneficial.

Many people struggle achieving their weight loss objectives. No matter how much working out is put into a day, the weight remains a constant. This can be extremely frustrating and discouraging as well. The reason behind this could be that the person may be working out in the wrong manner or not burning sufficient calories to create a calorie deficit needed for losing weight. The best method of finding out how many calories should be burned when exercising and doing other activities is to refer to a calorie burn calculator. The calculator works on a formula that shows the number of calories burned when engaging in various activities. Based on these data, a person can adjust their activity levels in order to burn calories.
