All calories are not created equally

Knowledge is power, right? Have you ever take the time to understand what you are eating from a perspective other than "this tastes good"? We must understand and educate ourselves on what food actually is. We eat Macronutrients and Micronutrients.

Macronutrients are where our calories come from: Proteins, Fats, Carbohydrates. The total of these things combined is ultimately how you lose/gain weight.

Let's break it down a little more

1g protein = 4 calories

1 g carbohydrate = 4 calories

1 g fat = 9 calories

Above shows where calories come from but what foods look like that? Here are a few common examples of foods from each category.

Protein: Meat, eggs, beans, tofu

Fat: butter, avocado, nuts and seeds, oils
