Re: [IP] Weight control -- what my mama never told me (long)

A pound of body fat IS equal to 3500 calories. The difference
between that number and the 4086 you came up with is that some of
that fat is burned as energy during the conversion process.

Andy said:

1 lb = 454 g

1 g fat = 9 KCal

454 g/lb x 9 KCal/g = 4086 KCal.
