Back in middle school, your science teacher taught you that one calorie is the amount of energy that is needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree Celsius. But, in terms of nutrition, a food calorie refers to the energy in food and the energy that our body uses to keep alive and moving.
In terms of food, the food calories we consumer are locked within 3 major types of nutrients as follows:
- Fats: 1 Gram of Fat delivers 9 Calories
- Proteins: 1 Gram of Protein delivers 4 Calories
- Carbohydrates (Sugars & Starches): 1 Gram of Carbohydrates delivers 4 Calories
For those who enjoy alcoholic libations, 1 Gram of Alcohol delivers 7 Calories. And, if your goal is to shed unwanted calories, then you may want to buy Trio Nutrition's Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules, Nirvana Kombucha or Pre-Pro Live for the perfect detox and cleanse: https://www.trionutrition.com/collections/detox-cleanse
