Just finished watching tonight's Biggest Loser. Pretty powerful stuff (ok... that might be a bit of an overstatement...) but Meg gained 4kg after consuming over 20,000kj (almost 5000calories) at temptation.
To put this in perspective - my daily energy needs are around 7,500kj (1785calories), and Meg is probably on a 6,000kj (1500calories) - or maybe even only 4,000kj (1000cal) diet.
My point of this quick post is - calories can easily add up to extra kilograms.
