Key Terms and Definitions

Calories Burned The amount of energy expended during physical activity, such as cycling, measured in calories. Burning more calories than consumed can lead to weight loss, while consuming more calories than burned can lead to weight gain.

Weight in Kilograms (kg) Your body weight, measured in kilograms, used as a factor in calculating the calories burned during cycling.

Duration in Minutes The length of your cycling session, measured in minutes, used as a factor in calculating the calories burned during cycling.

MET (Metabolic Equivalent of Task) A unit used to estimate the intensity of physical activities. It represents the ratio of the rate at which a person expends energy during an activity to the rate at which they expend energy at rest. In this calculator, the MET value corresponds to the intensity of your cycling activity.

Cycling Intensity The level of effort and energy expenditure during cycling, categorized by MET values. Different intensity levels, such as leisurely cycling or racing, will result in different amounts of calories burned.

Calorie Expenditure Estimate The approximate number of calories burned during a cycling session, calculated based on your weight, duration, and the selected MET value. This estimate can be useful for tracking your progress and adjusting your exercise routine or diet to achieve your fitness goals.
