## How Many Calories are Burned Cooking

To calculate how many calories are burned cooking, we need to know the MET value of cooking.

This calories burned cooking calculator uses 4 different MET for cooking.

• Cooking, chef has a MET value of 2.5
• Cooking in the kitchen, moderate effort has a MET value of 3.3
• Cooking or food preparation, moderate effort has a MET value of 3.5
• Cooking or food preparation, standing or sitting, or in general, light effort has a MET value of 2

Then use the following formula:

MET x Body Weight x 3.5 / 200 x time, where
Body weight unit = kg
Time unit = minutes

Example
For example, it burns about 429 kcal for a person who weighs about 180 pounds (81.65 kg) and cooks for 2 hours as a chef.

The calculation is:
2.5 (MET) x 81.65 kg x 3.5 / 200 x 120 minutes = 429 kcal.
