I need someone to help create some mathematical formulas for a weight loss app. we are developing..

Perhaps in a spreadsheet like Excel but I am open to ideas.

The app is a weight loss calculator among other things.
This is what I need:

A user will enter calories consumed and the app will need to be able to
tell the user how much of various exercises or predetermined clusters of
exercises that person will need to do to burn off the calories entered.

The user will need to be able to type in age, weight, height, sex.


500 calories consumed will require:

stand alone activities:
30 minutes on a treadmill
45 minutes on a stationary bike
20 minutes of swimming
90 minutes of walking
70 minutes of weight lifting

or exercise clusters:

90 seconds of situps
90 sec. pushups
90 sec. lunges
90 sec. squats without weights
3 minutes of jumping jacks

The math has to be pretty close to reality, this app will likely be
scrutinized heavily if all goes even remotely well.
