Please excuse my ignorance, but can someone tell me if there is a difference between a ‘cal’ (calorie) and a ‘k-cal’?
I always thought they were the same thing, k-cal being the more scientific term. But then I read John Berardi’s latest picture post thread. He states that he was eating 5500 k-cals, then reduced to 4500 k-cals and lost fat, before further reducing.
I find this amazing, as I am not able to lose fat unless I dip below 3000 calories- and I am 197 lbs, aprox 10-11% BF. Either i am doing something wrong, or he has a rediculously fast metabolism, or I should try Massive eating, or all of the above.
So- is a ‘k-cal’ and a ‘cal’ the same thing or what?
