here's a METs calculations site you can use http://www.topendsports.com/weight-loss/energy-met.htm so you can know the METs value of activities.
then you calculate your BMR = 665 + (9.6 x weight in Kg) + (1.8 x height in cm) - (4.7 x age in years)
1 kilogram = 2.2046 lbs
1 cm = 0.4 inches
then you do this-
(kcal burned) = (MET value) X (BMR/24) X (duration of activity in hours)
so for me, at 165lbs (74kg) and 28 years old, standing for 2 hours is
My BMR is 665+(9.6X74)+(1.8X160)-(4.7x28)= 665+710.4+288-131.6 = 1531.8
1.3METs X (1531.8/24) x 2
1.3 X 63.8 X 2 = 165.88 calories burned just standing.
clear as mud right?
