Food packaging is based on averages it is more or less right sometimes you'll get more calories, sometimes less. Most of your calories are spent on maintaining your body's functions. (About 3/4 in fact) You would have to be doing some incredibly hard exercise to lose weight through exercise alone. The most likely thing is your not tracking your calories ...

No. There are formulas for estimating basal metabolic rate (BMR) and total daily energy expenditure (TDEE). For exercises like walking or running you could estimate the calories burned based on measured performance data. Say, you have height, weight, sex, distance traveled and the time for this, as well as a measurement of burned calories, then those first ...

There is a simple general formula to calculate BMR (calories you burn per day without exercise). It is rather accurate as long as you are not far from "average" person. Eg very lean, very muscular, very obese: English BMR Formula Women: BMR = 655 + ( 4.35 x weight in pounds ) + ( 4.7 x height in inches ) - ( 4.7 x age in years ) Men: BMR = 66 + ( 6.23 x ...

Getting Basal or Resting Metabolic Rate Measurement will explain most of it. Please go to nearby laboratory and ask for it, they will explain what to do for the test and you will have accurate number for your Metabolism. I believe your BM is getting slower and you almost reached your plateau. Try different combinations of training such as intervals and for ...

From a step count alone, I wouldn't bother as the error could be as much as +/- 40%. Primarily as your step length changes with speed, as does wind resistance and energy expended, the gradient of a walk, your body fat percentage and fitness level will also affect the calculation, but the errors these factors introduce can be reduced by aggregating several ...

If waiting = watching television (1 MET), then yes, as per the MET formula: MET = vVO2Max = VO2 / 3.5 ~= KCal Burnt / (bodyMassKg * timeHours ) So as you state: 3 * 9 MET (cardio exercise) = 27 METS which is equivalent to: 27 * 1 MET (watching TV) = 27 METS

Worth noting, without data from an ECG (heart rate monitor) and face mask based gas analyzers, along with details of the gradient, wind speed, and surface there aren't any accurate equations. The best you can do is to estimate a VO2 (mL·kg-1·min-1) figure, and convert that into a Kcal one: Kcal/Min ~= respiratoryExchangeRatio * massKg * VO2 / 1000 ...

Before using the weight loss calculator I recommend you the best calorie calculator to accurate estimate of your daily calories required for loss.

I've posted some of the standard equations in my answer to: Metabolic Equations for Anaerobic Exercise? Essentially if you know the duration of the exercise, your body Mass in Kg, and either the MET score for the exercise, or an average of your heart rate through the exercise, and an estimated or measured VO2max figure for yourself, you can estimate the ...
