The Surprising Problem with Calorie Counting
We’re constantly informed the simplest and the best way to sustain a healthy weight is to consume no more than 2,000 calories each day. The problem is, dieters, diabetics and other health-conscious individuals are counting their calories based on inaccurate and outdated information. The nutrition facts label on packaged foods are all wrong because they are calculated on a system of averages that disregard the complex process of digestion. The number of calories we get from food will depend on the type of species we eat, the preparation of the food and the amount of energy we use to digest carbohydrates, protein and fat. This graphic explain why calorie counting of the food you consume and burn is a flawed method. See also the Zero Calorie Food Chart.
