Calories in Fat

  • Fat is a high calorie food. There are 9 calories in each gram of fat.
  • Fat contains more than twice the number of calories in protein or carbohydrates.
  • From a weight loss/calories viewpoint, all fats are equally 'bad.'
  • Low-calorie diets are usually low in fat.
  • If you are trying to lose weight, it is best to reduce your intake of high-fat, high-calorie foods like butter (80 percent fat), mayo (75-80 percent fat) and oil (100 per cent fat.)
  • Fast food is generally high in fat and calories.
  • Fat-free foods are not necessarily low in calories. Many fat-free sweet products are high in sugar and therefore high in calories.
  • From a health viewpoint, not all fats are equally 'bad'. Monounsaturated fat may contain the same calories as saturated or hydrogenated fat, but it offers clear health benefits. Even so, the Food Pyramid Guidelines and official US Dietary guidelines recommend that all fats should be eaten sparingly.
