When you’re losing pounds it can be difficult to visualize this in terms of actual physical weight, so being able to see this in terms of an object can be really motivating.
In this article, I’ve set out infographics and charts to help you to visualize a stone (and multiple stones and other amounts) of weight in terms of bags of Sugar.
In short, the average metric bag of sugar weighs 1kg (2.2lb) and an imperial bag of sugar (US weight is 2lb (0.9kg). There are 14 pounds in a stone which is equal to 6.4 one kilogram bags or seven two-pound bags of sugar per stone.
Read on to see lots more sugar to stone conversions to help you find the exact figures you’re looking for.
How Many 1kg or 2lb Bags of Sugar are in a Stone (and Multiple Stones)
To help you visualize what I mean by a 1kg or 2lb bag, the image here shows two types of 1kg (2.2lb) bags of sugar.
If you’re in the US where weights are imperial, then an equivalent bag will be slightly smaller (3.2 oz less) than the bags you see in this image.
If you prefer to work in pound bags then I’ll cover that further on in this article.
The table below shows how many bags of sugar are in a stone for multiple stone amounts and for both metric and imperial sugar bag sizes.
|Number of Stones||Amount of 1kg (2.2lb) Bags of Sugar||Amount of 2lb (0.9kg) Bags of Sugar|
|1||6.4 bags||7 bags|
|2||12.7 bags||14 bags|
|3||19.1 bags||21 bags|
|4||25.4 bags||28 bags|
|5||31.8 bags||35 bags|
|6||38.1 bags||42 bags|
|7||44.5 bags||49 bags|
|8||50.9 bags||56 bags|
