Enter the gross calorie burn (kcals) and the resting metabolic calories burned (kcal) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Net Calorie Burn.

## Net Calorie Burn Formula

NCB = GCB - RMR

Variables:

- NCB is the Net Calorie Burn (kcal)
- GCB is the gross calorie burn (kcals)
- RMR is the resting metabolic calories burned (kcal)

To calculate the Net Calorie Burn, subtract the resting metabolic calories burned from the gross calorie burn.

## How to Calculate Net Calorie Burn?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Net Calorie Burn.

- First, determine the gross calorie burn (kcals).
- Next, determine the resting metabolic calories burned (kcal).
- Next, gather the formula from above = NCB = GCB – RMR.
- Finally, calculate the Net Calorie Burn.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

gross calorie burn (kcals) = 2000

resting metabolic calories burned (kcal) = 1500
