Calorie density


The calories in our foods come from fat, carbohydrate and protein. Calorie density is the number of calories per weight in grams of the food. Calorie density often referred to as energy density.

Determining calorie density can be important for people who are attempting to lose weight, gain weight, in weight control management program or need to monitor food consumption due to an existing health issue.

Foods that are low in calorie density tend to be high in water and low in fat like raw fruits lean meats, low fat dairy products and vegetables. Water is the largest component of food and has the greatest impact on calorie density. So, low calorie density foods don't pack a lot of calories per bite but stuffed with water and fiber. Consumption of low calorie density foods will satisfy hunger with fewer calories while still providing plenty of vitamins and minerals.

Foods that are low in calorie density keeps us able to enjoy larger portions of various foods and still consume less calories overall. If you want to lose weight, try to aim for lower calorie density, but higher nutrient density.

Be smart and do not eat less than what your body needs.
