Weight Loss and Calories: You are what you eat

In the course of my journey I started paying much attention to calories embedded in the foods we eat. I realized that without cutting down on the calorie intake one’s weight loss journey would not be realized. Take for instance a 100 grams piece of fast food fried chicken has about 463 calories. Remember that it might take you more than 1 hour of walking to burn out 463 calories.

Chose your food wisely, and avoid animal fats as they have the most calories. However, it is not every high calorie food that is bad, for instance, while 100 grams of peanut butter has about 588 calories, it is recommended for weight watchers as it provides good cholesterol
