For the 20% of the men who added more than 14 kg, the equivalent values are 9300 kca1/year (39 MJ) or 25 kca1/day (107 kJ). Even on the assumption that this added weight occurred spasmodically, and perhaps over only 2 or 3 years in all out of the 15 years, this would still have resulted from an excess energy intake of only 125-175 kcal/day (520-730 kJ), which represents a comparatively small quantity of food. However, even this needs to be set into some sort of context. The importance of an extra 150 kcal (630 kJ) or so per day will obviously be related to its proportion of the normal daily intake.
