Dear Kimberlee
I apologise for only responding to your question today, but I had to have an operation last Wednesday, and although I informed the boffins who administer the Message Board, they failed to block incoming messages while I was in hospital.
4,2 kJ = 1 cal, thus 420 kJ/4.2 = 100 cal and vice versa.
Best regards

Kilojoules is the amount of energy (fat) you get in (so watch what you eat) and calories is the amount of energy you're losing and burning while excercising.
