How can I translate calories from fat?

How can I translate calories from fat? Topic: Essential oil case storage
June 16, 2019 / By Brayden
Question: Let's say I ate something that has 500 calories, and 0 calories from fat. What does this mean? I know that an excess of calories can turn into fat, so if I eat this 500-calorie food (with 0 calories from fat) but 300 of those calories turn into fat (the excess 300), then, in my case, what's the difference between something that has 500 calories and 0 calories from fat, and food that has 300 calories from fat? Either way I'll be gaining 300 fat calories. Thanks.

Your question is pretty interesting because I’m sure a lot of people are wondering the same thing…if they eat low fat or no fat food, if they eat carbohydrates or proteins and their bodies just put some of those calories in fat reserve because they did not use all of them, they think they might as well eat fat, instead of avoiding it? I have a question: why would you eat 500 calories of anything , knowing you won’t even use half of it? Are you trying to get fatter on purpose or do you have a food addiction? Let’s say you just like to eat…there’re nothing wrong with that, as long as you make it a commitment to use those extra calories so your body does not just put them in storage for an eventual further use that will never come and will just make your body fatter. If you eat 500 calories with 0 calories from fat…it means that you’re eating carbohydrates and/or proteins and if it’s processed food (which you should avoid at all cost, if you want to be healthy and not hungry), then the manufacturers probably replaced the fat with more carbohydrates or even worse, artificial sweeteners to add flavor. Be aware that low fat or no fat processed food sometimes has MORE calories than its normal fat counterpart. It all comes down to the number of calories you’re eating. Carbohydrates calories, proteins calories, fat calories…any extra calories you do not use will be stored by your body, usually as fat reserve. Some carbohydrates calories will be stored in the muscles and liver (glycogen) to be used easily (that’s why you should eat a lot of pasta and bread the day before a big game), and then when your body runs out of those, if will use your fat reserve…after about 20 to 30 minutes of low cardios. The fat you’re eating is not the same as the fat your body is storing. Animal saturated fat is pretty bad for you (butter, lard, meat) and contributes to heart disease and cancer. You’re better off with unsaturated and monounsaturated fats (canola oil, olive oil, peanut oil). So you can have nuts or olives or an avocado or fish and all those fatty food are good for you. (avoid trans fat…they’re so bad, they will soon become illegal). So there would be no problem for you to eat 300 calories from fat instead of 300 calories non-fat, as long as it is the good kind of fat (nuts, olive oil, fish) and not the bad kind (animal fat and fried food) because if you eat too much of the wrong fat, you could get a heart attack because of your arteries getting clogged up. Like those strong and young athletic guys dying on the basketball court because they’re black and their southern diet mostly consists of fried food. You need to know a few basics. 1. About 25% of your diet should come from eating fat because fat is an essential part of your nerves, spiral cord, brain, and cell membranes. Internal fat helps protects vital organs and external fat provides insulation. 2. About 10% to 15% (if you’re athletic) of your diet should come from eating proteins because proteins are essential for building and repairing muscles, red blood cells, hair, body tissue and making hormones. If you take your weight in pound and divide it by two, that would be the number of grams of protein you would need. 3. The rest of your calories intake (60-65%) should come from carbohydrates because carbohydrates are the nutrients your muscles use for energy. 4. You should also make sure you also get enough vitamins, minerals and water to help regulate your metabolic process, stabilizes your body temperature and carry nutrients to cells and waste away from cells. 5. Proteins and carbohydrates have 4 calories per grams, fat has 9 calories per gram and alcohol has 7 nutritionally empty calories per gram.

Aengus Originally Answered: How many calories could I lose if I normally take in 2500 calories and I cut back to 800 calories?
Everyone's body type and loosing rate is different. You would need to track your weight loss in a journal to determine how fast you can loose. Here are some tips! This is my theory and this is what works for me. Everyone is different so it may need to be adjusted to your own personal needs. Energy In/Energy Out Food Intake: 1,200 Per Day One Pound equals 3,500 Calories To loose one pound per day, You need to burn your food intake plus your one pound of fat 1,200 (intake) + 3,500 (Outtake) = 4,700 Calories Burn You must burn at least 4,700 Calories everyday to loose one pound at least. It is very easy to go up and beyond 4,700 calories each day. Best way to do this is to track your progress on a calorie counter monitor watch. If you do it by the numbers you can loose the weight. It is just a matter of changing the way you think about weight loss. Once you start wearing your calorie counter you can see the numbers increase and you fill find yourself doing extra things in your day, like tapping your foot while waiting at the light in your car, chewing gum, singing out loud and so on onto of your workout routines. You begin to see that everything you do in your day contributes to the overall numbers needed to loose that pound. I, myself, have done this recently. Two weeks later, I lost one pant size and 10 pounds. And that is just my current progress. I have used this method previously after childbirth and have gone from 168 to 127 pounds with in two months. I personally burn 1,000 calories by Walking in my community for one hour in the morning and I also burn 1,000 calories by simply using a stationary bike while playing xbox. I get so involved in playing xbox that I completely forget I am pedaling or working out. Think about it..How many hours have you spent playing video games..why not burn calories while you are doing it. ___ Water Intake/Less Storage Most people do not get enough water in their system. Water is your body's principal chemical component, comprising, on average, 60 to 80 percent of your weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues. Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. To determine if you are getting enough water use this simple formula.. Take your weight, for example 150 pounds and divide by 2. Take your answer which is 75 lbs and change it to ounces, in this case 75 ounces. That is how many ounces of water you need a day. Your body performs mostly on water. If you make sure you get enough water everyday your body will perform at top notch and your body will no longer have the cravings of junk food. You will have a better performing body system to help you work out and feel better thru out your day. ____ Good Food My favorite things to eat: Avocado Wraps Simple: Low Carb Tortilla, Half Avocado sliced, alpha sprouts, lettuce, soy bacon...Just wrap it up and eat. You can vary the things you put inside so long as you keep it to approx 4 or 5 items. You want to make sure they are fresh, low calorie and filling. Avocado and mushrooms can replace meats in your meal and still have great taste. Special K Cereals are fantastic. They have that sweetness that one craves and is so good for you. Calories are low. Great for even just dinner. First thing in the morning...A Glass of Chocolate Milk. Yup!! Chocolate Milk. We all crave that "got to have" item in the morning. Milk is the best thing you can have for yourself while working out. The chocolate (and you can use Carnation Instant Milk for this but I simply use Nestle dry mix) will give you that sweet "snack" that you need. If you give your body a little bit of it and its in a control way, you will not crave sweets and junk the rest of the day. Lean Cuisines Fantastic food! Each meal is approx 180 t0 380 calories per box. So think about your calories. 1,200...You can still have several of these meals a day and still be under your intake requirements. It’s all about the numbers and watching what you take in and what you burn out. And you know what..If you go over your 1,200 mark for food intake...that’s okay...you simple up your total calories burned for the day by what you took it. So long as you burn off the over all calories to be more than your food intake. Just make sure you stick too it so you can reach your weight loss goals. Fruits and Veggies All you want on the schedule listed below. Bananas are my favorite. They are very filling and can make a meal all on their own. ____ Vitamins My favorite is ONE A DAY WITH ENERGY...I am in love with this vitamin because I am just like everyone else who loves those quick fix energy drinks. But what people do not realize is that energy drinks can contain 120 to 440 calories in just ONE Can. If you think about it..That is HALF of your allowed calories for food intake. The best alternative I have found is One a day with energy vitamin. Easy to spot, it is packaged in a green label bottle. Just One vitamin a day will give you as much energy as approx. 1 1/2 cans of red bull...WITHOUT the calorie intake. WoW..now your making progress already because you have made more room in your intake calories for actual healthy food. _____ Soda/Carbonation Carbonation is terrible for your system because it bloats your stomach. And when your stomach bloats, your jeans just don't fit. You can drop one pant size simply by NOT drinking any carbonated drinks all together..Take away the bloat and you have instantly just made it one pant size lower. Besides, Sodas dehydrate you and with that One a Day Vitamin, you won't need the Caffeine in the soda and it will also cut out those extra calories that you don't need. So remove that soda and the energy drinks and just think how much calories you just instantly removed from your daily intake. I normally consume what...four sodas and two energy drinks in one day...that is a total of .... 900 calories. Of what??? Nothing...Those are horrible calories and calories that can be replaced by food which will fuel your body for your day and your workouts. ____ Your Body Your body is like a computer. You must program your body to do what it is suppose to do so it won't crash and leave you with a virus. Your stomach is only the size of your fist. So think about it right now, Look at your hand and close your fist. Not very big is it. That is how much food you actually ONLY need to eat, each time you eat for every meal. If you eat anything more than that, you will stretch out your stomach which causes overeating and overweight. What you need to do is eat every three hours, approx 5 to 7 times everyday around the same time. If you are always giving your body healthy and better food choices (the size of your fist) every three hours, your body will know you are giving it food. It will use that food properly. It will not go into starvation mode or store food away for later because it knows...it will get more in three hours. So what does your body do...it flushes everything out of your system because it doesn't need it.. Now it knows...you wont' forget about it and that food is on its way. ____ Walking Buddy This is the best thing especially for woman. Get a walking buddy. One hour everyday. Just think about how much talking, venting and laughing two woman can do together while walking and yup, you guessed it...it just burns more calories and reduces your stress. You now are more relaxed because you can talk and free yourself of whatever is frustrating you while getting into shape. : By: My own experience/Joyceeleann
Aengus Originally Answered: How many calories could I lose if I normally take in 2500 calories and I cut back to 800 calories?
It's not a good idea to live completely on a diet/nutrition shake. They're supplements, not replacements. And if they are designed to replace a meal, it's ONE meal...not all of them. It's very unhealthy to replace all of your meals with these shakes. And the shakes are generally not very good for you anyways. It's just a bad idea all the way around. And while multivitamins do provide some vitamins and minerals but it's not always in conjunction with things that allow them to be absorbed. Getting these things from food is better and more accepted by the body. ALSO, 800 calories a day is considered a starvation diet. Anything 900 and under is considered a starvation diet. This is extremely unhealthy for your body and while you may not see the effects right away, it IS and WILL BE detrimental. You only get one body, don't abuse it. Instead of using quick-fixes...do some exercise and stay on a plan of 1200-1500 calories daily. You will lose weight consistently and healthily. I've lost 100+ pounds, I can attest that...lo and behold...diet and exercise really do work.

Huh? If it has 0 calories from fat, there's no fat in the food. Every gram of fat adds 9 calories.

Calories are the important factor in weight loss/weight gain. It doesn't really matter whether the calories are from carbohydrates, fat, or protein. Of course the composition of your diet is important for other reasons.

Racheal Originally Answered: How do you find what percent the fat calories are of the total calories in each food?
im not sure about homework but for real life, just look at the food labels. In the nutrition labels, look under calories. Eg, a can of tuna says, calories 120 , fat calories 70. so 70/120=59% of all calories in a can of tuna are fat calories. It varies for each differnt food product and brand. Im not sure if this helped but cheers anyway.
