No: Calories↑H20Temp: A calorie = the amount of heat energy required to warm 1 milliliter of water 1 degree Centigrade. The food label calorie is a kilocalorie; the amount of energy needed to warm 1000 ml (1 liter) of water 1 degree centigrade. Thus food with 500 calories can, burned completely, release enough energy to warm 500 liters of water 1 degree centigrade. Calories have no mass; don't show on body weight scale
