Do you know where your calories come from? You may be taking in your recommended daily value (hopefully you know your BMR), but are you taking in too many calories from a particular area (like fat & alcohol). Here is a breakdown of the calories provided by the 3 Macronutrients:
1 Gram of Protein contains 4 Calories
1 Gram of Carbohydrates contains 4 Calories
1 Gram of Fat contains 9 Calories
*It is also important to note that 1 Gram of Alcohol contains 7 Calories. (Almost double that of Protein & Carbs and nearly as much as Fat)
Do you know where your calories are coming from? The package may say “100 Calories,” but is it all from fat? You might want to start paying attention!
