 UNIDENT Posts: 33,498 3/31/13 9:40 P Dance 4 is a "music video game" according to Google. Does that mean you danced it for one normal pop song - about 3-4 minutes? 12 calories would be about right. In this case I would say kcal = calories. The terms usually are used interchangeably. As another poster said, it's unlikely you actually burned 12,000 calories. :) If it was more than 5 minutes though, something's off...
 CHLOEAGH SparkPoints: (29,002) Fitness Minutes: (7,311) Posts: 1,012 3/31/13 7:05 P How long did you exercise for? A Calorie, the measurement used for food is actually 1000 calories (notice change in capitalization), a unit of energy. So I would expect a Kcal to be one Calorie. But 12.5 seems very small.
 SP_COACH_NANCY SparkPoints: (0) Fitness Minutes: (112,042) Posts: 46,222 3/31/13 6:31 P Hi Ariel, 1 Kcal = 1000 calories. However, I doubt you expended 12,000 calories dances. What calorie calculator are you using. You may want to track it using SparkPeople's calorie calculator using the general-low impace aerobic option. Coach Nancy
 ARIEL102190 SparkPoints: (2,480) Fitness Minutes: (2,057) Posts: 6 3/31/13 5:16 P I just noticed that just dance 4 uses KCALS. I burned 12.05 Kcals, but i dont know how many calories that is. Can someone help me please?
