you cannot convert calories into protein etc, calories are a measure of how much energy you can get from a certain amount of food, people concerned about their weight use the calorie count of food to help control their food intake because if you take in more food than your body is using it can be stored as excess fat all you can do is look at the break down of the contents of a food item and then calculate how many calories it could provide, for example if you had a ready meal that contained 100g of protein, 150g of carbohydrate and 30g of fat its calorific value would be (100 x 4) + (150 x 4) + (30 x 9) = 1270 or about half the energy intake needed by a woman for a day
