## What are calories?

Calories are a measurement of energy. The body stores excess energy
in fat cells. Enter the amount of fat (in pounds) to determine the net
calorie consumption needed to expend the stored energy in the fat
cells.

To find the amount of calories stored in fat cells use the equation:

Calories = (Pounds of Fat) x 3500

3500 is an approximation of calories needed to expend the energy in 1
pound of fat.

Example: To burn 5.8 pounds of fat, this equates to a total energy
exertion of:

Calories = 5.8 x 3500
This gives an answer of 20,300 calories to expel 5.8 pounds of fat.
