Your Food Calorie Chart and Burning Calories

Calories measure the energy stored in food. And a calorie by any other name adds up the same. In other words, unlike some diet books would have you believe, a fat calorie has the same amount of stored energy as a protein or a carbohydrate calorie.

All foods have calories whether they're healthy foods or unhealthy foods.

And when it come to calories, size is irrelevant. For example, a whole head of lettuce can have a lot less calories than a tiny piece of chocolate. And if the lettuce is dark green, it will also have a lot more nutrition and health benefits than the candy.

Everything you do in life requires the energy fuel you get from calories whether you're moving, sitting or sleeping. But different functions use different amounts of fuel.

And here's the bummer. Your body stores unused fuel from calories as fat cells for future famine use. But, for most of us, the famine never comes and the fat just sits there.

Guidelines for Best "Diet" Results

Being on a diet usually refers to what you eat to lose weight. But, in reality, your diet is what you eat everyday. And a healthy diet is a daily food plan that delivers the minimum necessary calories with the maximum healthy results.Approximately 3500 calories equals 1 pound - 3,500 extra to gain and 3,500 fewer ton lose.

So, whether you're on a 3000 calorie diet or 1200 daily food calories, how you gain or lose weight is simple mathematics calories in minus calories out. If you're ready to put the calorie math to work in your favor, go to the Food Calories Chart and begin!
