Patient discussion about caloric

Q. What are the common caloric conversions? Hi my new friends, help me to find out how does caloric expenditure affect weight loss? What are the common caloric conversions?

A. Hi my new friend. Welcome to this community. I have given here the caloric equivalents for your reference:

1 pound = 3500 kcal
1 gram fat = 9 kcal
1 gram carbohydrate = 4 kcal
1 gram protein = 4 kcal
1 gram alcohol = 7 kcal

Example:
How does caloric expenditure affect weight loss?
An individual creates a caloric deficit by walking one mile to and from work each day. Assuming a 100 calorie per mile caloric expenditure, how many weeks would it take to lose one pound?
1 lb = 3500 calories
2 miles per day x 5 days = 10 miles
10 miles x 100 calories = 1000 calories per week
3,500 calories ÷ 1000 = 3.5 weeks
