How to Convert Calories to Stones
To convert a calorie measurement to a stone measurement, divide the weight by the conversion ratio.
Since one stone is equal to 49,000 calories, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The weight in stones is equal to the calories divided by 49,000.
Converting calories is actually a conversion of energy burned by the body performing work rather than actual weight. When measuring the energy content in foods, the large calorie, or kilocalorie, is used, but it's often still just called a "calorie."
One calorie (large calorie) is equal to the heat needed to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by 1 degree Celsius. You'll need to burn 3,500 calories more than you eat to lose one pound of weight.
Calories can be abbreviated as kcal; for example, 1 calorie can be written as 1 kcal.
The stone is an imperial unit of weight. Stones can be abbreviated as st; for example, 1 stone can be written as 1 st.
