Calories Burned Today Calculator Help

Find out how many calories you burned today, including calories burned through exercise and activities. First, we'll start with your resting metabolism (RMR or BMR), or how many calories you need each day just to maintain basic bodily functions. We'll get about how many calories you burned today by looking at your lifetyle at work, home, or play and the calories burned during specific exercises and activities you choose. This calculator uses gender, height, weight, and age to determine your RMR, then makes adjustments depending on the lifestyle level you choose, and finally adds in the calories burned doing the selected exercises and activities.

Input Fields:

Title A title for these calculator results that will help you identify it if you have printed out several versions of the calculator.
US/Metric Choose US or Metric units.
Height Your height. Use feet (ft) and inches (in) if units is US or centimeters (cm) if units is Metric.
Lifestyle Choose the level that best describes how active you are throughout an average day. You should consider activities that you do every day for your job or at home, especially those that you do not want to track and report the number of minutes for. The important thing is to NOT include activities that you want to track individually, especially ones where your lifestyle choice here would be different without it. Just think about your day-to-day life without your planned exercise time.
Activity Activities for which you would like to calculate the number of calories burned. Each activity is chosen from the comprehensive list of exercises, sports, household, and lawn activities provided. If you cannot find an exact match for your exercise or activity, try to choose something similar or of similar intensity.
Mins How many minutes you did this Activity.
Intensity Level The Activity's assigned intensity level expressed as METs. One MET is equivalent to a metabolic rate consuming 1 calorie per kilogram of body weight per hour. One MET is also equivalent to a metabolic rate consuming 3.5 milliliters of oxygen per kilogram of body weight per minute.
Calories The number of calories burned doing this activity for the number of minutes entered (dependent on the given Weight).

Output Fields:

Average Actual Metabolism The average number of calories you burn per day and per hour.
