The three big ones are carbs, fats and proteins. They all have a value of calorie when it comes to weight. Now, when you weigh something, just basic digital scales, make sure you have zeroed it, pour an amount in and get it in grams. When it is in grammage, protein roughly is four calories per gram of protein. When it comes to carbohydrates, four calories per gram. When it comes to fats, nine calories per gram. So you are getting over double the amount of calorie value in fats that you are to proteins and carbohydrates. So that is why it is very important to track your fat intake when you are controlling a diet, especially the calorie value of it. So remember, four calories per protein, four calories per carbohydrate, nine calories per fat source.
