The difference between calories and kilojoules is that one calorie equals 4,2 kilojoules and vice versa. So, if you read on a food label that a portion of the food contains 100 calories, you can multiply that value with 4,2 to work out how many kilojoules the food contains:
Example: 100 calories x 4,2 = 420 kJ
Conversely, you can calculate that a portion of food that contains 420 kJ (metric system) will contain 420 divided by 4,2 = 100 calories The same applies when you want to work out how many calories or kilojoules a diet contains. Multiply calories by 4,2 to obtain kilojoules and divide kilojoules by 4,2 to obtain calories.
Although we use larger numbers when working with metric kilojoules this does NOT mean that kilojoules contain more energy, just that we are using a different system to express energy content.
Well last night i went in for my 6 week review at 4 weeks. Im just bored with the workout im doing and its become waaaay to easy. Ive been upping the weights to make it a little harder.
Conclusion was that the lady showing me around ended up using lighter weights to example than i was using because i was apparently a shitload stronger than most females.
Shes had to put me on an advanced workout and said to let me know how it goes.
I guess that explains why im lifting heavier weights than some of the guys eh :/
I dont think its because of the working out so much as ive always been fairly strong without actually doing anything.
Anyway Ive decided to start next week on the new workout.
Well! its official! the stats are in!
According to fitday ive lost an average of 2.2kg per week for the last fortnight. I havnt been logging my weight for a month yet so if i do it over a month it goes down to 1.7kg per week – which is STILL far above my goal of 1.56 !
At this rate I should be down to 90kg in 17 weeks (long before xmas which was my goal!).
Im just so darned happy!!!! :D:D:D:D!!!
