We're often encouraged to be carb conscious, which can be helpful for blood sugar control but not necessarily good for your weight. Calories still count. Some foods can be low in carbohydrate and high in calories. For example, an 8-ounce steak and a 16-ounce steak both have 0 grams of carbohydrate. But you still need to count the calories that come from protein and fat; you may be consuming more calories than you realize.
Here are some easy calorie conversions:
1 gram of carbohydrate = 4 calories
1 gram of protein = 4 calories
1 gram of fat = 9 calories
Adopt one (or more) of the following tips to sensibly trim calories every day.
