You may think that a spreadsheet is all about calculation, but the truth is that a few things happen inside a spreadsheet, including the number that you enter into it.
Excel will automatically calculate the calories burned when you perform an exercise, and if you enter in the correct numbers you can use that information to make a calculation.
You can find out how to calculate your calorie burn on the chart below.
To get started, just start by typing in the following formula to get the number to the right: calories burned = calories x weight x timeIn this example, we’re looking at the weight of your body, and you can enter your weight in kilos.
For example, if you weigh 140 kilograms, you’ll be able to calculate that you burned 6.8 kilos of calories during exercise.
When you enter the correct number of kilos, Excel will then calculate the total calories burned.
If you enter 5 kilos into the equation, you’re using 5 kiloes of energy to burn 5 kilojoules of energy.
If you enter 10 kilos and the formula is 10 x 5 x 5, you’ve used 10 kilojouns of energy, or 0.2 kilojun per minute.
This is how you can calculate how many calories you should burn during a workout, or how many kilojounts you should be burning per minute to stay in a calorie deficit.
Enter the correct amount of calories, and Excel will calculate the correct calculation for you.
It’s important to note that the spreadsheet is not a calorie calculator.
If the formula you entered is incorrect, Excel won’t give you an accurate result, so make sure to keep your formulas correct.
