The Food Processor uses REE (Resting Energy Expenditure) to calculate the calories burned for various exercises.
- REE Calories = REE/min x duration/min
(These are the Calories expended just being alive)
- Activity Calories = Mets x duration minutes x 0.0175 kcal/kg/min x kg body weight
(0.0175 is a constant that represents the post-exercise oxygen consumption)
(These are the Calories expended from doing the specific exercise)
- Total Calories expended during the exercise period = REE Calories + Activity Calories
