Every time you refer about Weight gain or weight loss, it is often accompanied by the word Calorie. While talking about weight loss, exercise or weight gain its quite not possible that one does not talk about food and importance of knowing what is calorie .
What is calorie ?
Calorie in simple terms is a unit of measurement of energy. Calorie by definition is “the energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water through 1 °C”. While using calorie to mention the energy and as a body fuel it is in fact the Kilocalorie that is getting referred. This is the “energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 Kilogram of water through 1 °C”. Mathematically 1 Kilocalories is equal to 1000 CALORIES !!.
How calorie gets converted to body fat ?
When we eat more calories than what our body needs over a day, the extra energy gets stored in the form of body fat. There is roughly 7000 calories in a kilo gram of fat. This means to burn and reduce 1 Kilogram of fat we need to ideally burn 7000 calories. Storing calories as fat can happen in many situations. First when one eats more food. Otherwise one eats optimum food but of more calorific value. Else when you eat considerably normal calorie but does not make it utilized by the body much. However apart from the vital functions the body always tends to store anything in extra. This is for utilizing in future or for a time when calories are scarce.
When additional calories are consumed they get stored as small amounts of fat. This when happen every single day over and over again and will lead to weight gain as the fat content in your body is increasing. Hence make sure that you eat healthy and maintain an active lifestyle for your body to keep using the calories consumed and to make them store less in the form of fat.

This includes breathing , digestion , heart pumping blood , movements and in performing other body functions. Therefore human body needs calories for itself to survive. The body will utilize calories based the energy that it is supposed to spend on daily functions and additional work it has to perform.

The life sustaining activities like breathing , pumping blood , cell repair , movements , growth etc are the result of chemical processes in body. These are continuous activities which requires energy to burn.
The energy as we discussed comes from food and calories is the measure of potential energy in the food. Hence food , calorie and body metabolism are all interconnected. Calorie will be combined with oxygen in body to produce the active energy which body utilizes for its functioning.
