In this article, I’ll show you some everyday food and drink that weigh a kilogram to help you quickly compare the items as visual weight.
As well as this, I’ve created tables to compare everyday items with multiple kilogram weights to help you find what you’re looking for.
So, read on to see what weighs a kilogram and much more!
What is a Kilogram?
A kilogram is a metric unit of weight generally used in countries that use metric weights as a measurement.
The kilogram is used for many measurements, such as weighing food and human weight. Many people track their weight loss in kilos, and it’s often helpful to have something to compare this against.
A kilogram in weight is equal to:
- 1000 grams
- 35.274 ounces
- 2.2 pounds
1 – There is One Bag of Sugar in a Kilogram
Sugar bags are an excellent way to compare a visual kilogram because most countries that use metric weights sell sugar by the kilogram.
In the USA, where imperial weights are used, a kilogram is 2.2lb, so an equivalent would be just over a 2lb bag of sugar.
Take a look at the table below for more sugar to weight loss conversions:
|Weight In Kilograms||Weight Equivalent in Bags of Sugar|
|Half a kilo||Half a bag|
|One kilo||One bag|
|Two kilos||Two Bags|
|Three kilos||Three Bags|
|Four kilos||Four Bags|
|Five kilos||Five Bags|
The image below shows what a 1kg bag of sugar looks like and how it can vary depending on its packaging.
2 – There Are 4 Blocks of Lard in a Kilogram
Being a block of fat, lard is often used as a simple comparison to weight and fat loss.
The average block of supermarket lard weighs 250g (8.8oz), so one kilogram in weight is equal to 4 blocks in total.
The table below shows more kilogram to lard blocks comparisons:
|Weight In Kilograms||Weight Equivalent in Lard|
|Half a kilo||2 blocks|
|One kilo||4 blocks|
|Two kilos||8 blocks|
|Three kilos||12 blocks|
|Four kilos||16 blocks|
|Five kilos||20 blocks|
