›› converting nutritional grams into calories   (05/28/2012, 9:45 AM)

The current nutrition information is that protein and carbohydrates have 4 kcal/gram and fat has 9kcal/gram.

How do we convert those stats into correct measurement which is listed as calories, not kcal? A true kcal = .001 calorie. Does anyone know if they really mean kcal just to keep things simple? Our food labels say "calories per serving" and cardio machines say "calories burned", neither say kcal.
I am trying to help people figure out how many calories are in the foods they eat that may not have a label. Am I nuts?
