Calories Calculator

Gaining and losing weight does not depend on miracle solutions and supplements. It comes down to basic calculations you can do to predict the results of your diet and physical exercise.

If your calorie intake is lower than your calorie output, you will ultimately lose weight. Thus, you need to calculate how many calories are you currently consuming in your diet against your basal metabolic rate (the number of calories your body burns by itself) and the calories you are burning in your daily workouts.

That is the reason why a calories burned calculator comes in handy to predict your weight loss or weight gain, depending on your current fitness goals.

Use our Calorie Calculator to estimate how many calories you burn doing different activities/exercises. Our calculator offers a database of over 250 exercises for you to choose from.

How does a calories burned calculator work?

A calories burned calculator, as the name implies, gives you the estimated number of calories you have burned after performing certain activities for a given period of time. To make precise calculations, it takes into consideration your weight, height, age, and the activity or exercises you will measure.

Each activity or type of exercise has a MET (metabolic equivalent) assigned to it according to its intensity. For example, walking slowly is equivalent to 2.5 METs, and moderate-intensity activities such as doing gymnastics are equivalent to 4 METs.

Since 1 MET is defined as 1 kcal/kg/hour, calories burned calculator would take the time you’ve spent in physical activity and your weight in kilograms to obtain the number of calories you’ve burned after your workout session.

There are various ways to do the same calculation and multiple tables and sources of METs, but not all of them are reliable or accurate. That is why this calculator is designed to make your work easier still, allowing to enter your weight in kilograms or pounds and comprising over 250 exercises with their METs according to the most reliable sources.

In this calculator, you can even estimate data for one single exercise or multiple exercises at the same time, and it gives you additional information, such as your body mass index (BMI) and your basal metabolic rate (BMR) to make calculations easier for you.

What you need to remember if you’re calculating your burned calories

When you’re calculating the number of calories you’ve burned by using this calculator or a given formula, you should remember that this number is an estimate, and it is not 100% accurate.

The number of calories you burn would highly depend on your body composition, your fitness levels, the temperature you’re in, and your vital signs during exercise, which include your heart rate and the intensity of your respiration.

For instance, experienced athletes would burn fewer calories in the same exercise because their bodies become used to the routine and they don’t need to work so hard and breathe so heavy to complete their exercise session.

Thus, if you want to obtain the best results, it is recommended to adjust your diet and physical activity levels according to your results by increasing or decreasing your negative energy expenditure aiming at a healthy weight loss or weight gain.
