    cals per gram macro's ???


    does the 4 cal per gram of protein work across the board, is there any circumstances where the cals are increased for any reason. rephrase: would there ever be a time where ir would b 3 cals per or 5 cals per?

    no protein is always 4cal. fat is always 9cal. carb are 4, but apparently you don't have to count unsolvable fiber, because it is not used as energy

    Where did you get that? I've never read anything about there being only 7kcals per gram of saturated fats. Alcohol, though, does have 7kcals per gram.

    Trans fats are the only ones you don't want. Saturated fats do have an important role, but they were unfairly demonized for a long time.

    8.3 for MCT versus 9 for other fats. Not really worth noting, but still a difference, esp if you drank an assload of it LOL

    Yes, a "New Scientist" article basically laid it out that the de-naturing of cooking makes proteins more easily digestible, so raw takes more energy from your body to digest than protein cooked well-done, which would be a lower-calorie food by the principle of [energy in] - [energy needed to digest]. It has also been shown (same article) that protein should now be calculated as 3.5 calories per gram. Trust the medical industry and gubmint to take about a decade to catch up to the news...

    Chances are if you're that concerned with micro-managing your caloric intake you've got much bigger problems to deal with (dysmorphia, Adonis-complex, bulimia, etc.).
