Fats, carbohydrates, and protein are all essential for your body to function at an optimal level.  Unless under doctor’s or nutritionist’s orders, an eating plan should consist of a balance of these three macronutrients.  Understanding the caloric makeup of these macronutrients is important to know, just so you can have a better understanding of what, and how much you are putting in your body.  For example, 1 gram of fat equals 9 calories.  Fats are more dense in their makeup compared to carbohydrates and proteins which each contain 4 calories per 1 gram.  This is how nutrition labels come up with their calorie count.  Let’s say a serving of peanut butter contains 10 grams of fat, 5 grams of carbohydrates, and 5 grams of protein.  A serving of that peanut butter would equal 130 calories.  You may also notice that on nutrition labels there are percentage signs as well.  This is because the nutrition label is going by a 2,000 calorie diet, and how much fat, carbs, and protein you would need if you’re on a 2,000 calorie diet.  Some people need more calories than that, some need less so keep that in mind!
