Is it true that every 1000 Kcal

Is it true that every 1000 Kcal in excess makes us gain 1 Kg in weight?

This is not true, no… Rather, to gain 1 extra kilo, we need a supplementary caloric intake of about 7000 Kcal. Therefore, we must recall that each extra food taken must be accounted for…!

To give you an example of this fact, let’s take the case of our consumption of a soft drink can every day and which we take in addition to our normal daily caloric intake. Such a can would make us gain 6 kilos in 1 year … Do you know how? Let’s do a simple calculation: – 1 can of 330 ml of soft drink contains about 8 pieces of sugar of 4g/each (or 7 pieces of 5g/each). – 1 g of sugar = 4 Kcal. – As such, a soft drink can would bring us around 128 Kcal.

Beware, however! Those among us who wish to gain weight should always base their efforts on a healthy, balanced and rich food plan containing all kinds of vitamins and nutrients.
