If you've ever been on a diet then you know that calorie counting
is often a part of the process. If you counted every calorie but
still didn't lose as much weight as you wanted, it might be
because not all calories are equal.
Recent studies show that calories from fat produce the most
weight and fat gain, and calories from excess carbohydrates run a
close second. The reason is that the body doesn't need to burn
any calories to use fat. When you eat fat, it gets stored as fat
right away. As they say, a bite of ice cream is "a second on the
lips, an eternity on the hips."
Excess carbohydrates also present a problem. When you eat more
carbohydrates than your body can easily digest, it converts those
carbs to fat for easy storage. Calories from fiber and protein
are less likely to be stored as fat since the body simply
eliminates any fiber or protein it can't digest. Plus, the body
burns calories as it digests fiber and protein.
So the next time you're counting calories and thinking about
substituting ice cream for an equal calorie low fat dessert,
think again. Fat calories become fat in your body. Reach for
something healthy instead.
