Well Kim & Laura
You started me on an investigation!! According to this site
4.184 kilojoules = 4,184 joules = 1 Calorie = 1 kilocalorie = 1,000 calories
Just 1kg of body fat contains the equivalent of 37,000kJ. To lose 1kg of body fat in a week, you would need to burn an additional 37,000kJ, or around 5,000kJ a day.
I've also started a food diary for myself and so far today, I've eaten 804 calories. I've also burned 240 calories with my Hotpants workout.
On the food diary that I printed off weightloss.com.au, I put the total eaten calories in the Energy Intake - right?? Could someone please explain to me what I put in Energy Goal?
Or explain to me how to fill in the sum of:
Energy Intake - Energy Goal = Surplus or Deficit
I know some people might be thinking, "That's eeeasy!! She doesn't know that???" But I did "SPECIAL Math's"!!! Please help!! LOL!!!
Oh, and Laura, I got your 2nd post about the fat = calories as I was typing this.
