Little Known 7 Fat and Calories Relations

Little Known 7 Relations between Fat and Calories
“Fat” and “calories” are quite terrifying words for people who are on a diet. We want to avoid the words in the rest of life if we can. But we cannot.  Let’s study relations between fat and calories, if we cannot avoid them.

By the way, what extent do you know about fat and calories? Many people think they know quite a lot about fat and calories but hardly know about fat and calories.
To acquire the knowledge of fat and calories will be shortcut to succeed losing weight properly.

Today let me introduce 7 mysterious relations between fat and calories.



Little Known 7 Fat and Calories Relations 

 

No.1: What is a Calorie Anyway?


What is a calorie anyway? The answer is “a thermal unit”. Everyone learns it in science class of junior high school. A calorie is equivalent to a unit of heat defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by one degree centigrade.

“Kcal” which is often used for food packages means a unit of heat defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a liter of water by 1 degree centigrade. So, “k” means one thousand.

Calories only include carbohydrate, protein and fat, not include nutrients like mineral or vitamin. There are two types of calories “intake calorie” absorbed nutrients into the body by eating and “calorie consumption” used for daily activity and exercise.

 

No.2: What is Fat Anyway?


Fat is liable to put on around the waist. Although you cannot see your fat by yourself, it is easy to see it at a super market. White parts of beef or pork are fat.

You may get bad impression on fat as seeing it at a super market, but fat plays an important role in our body, such as maintaining body temperature or conserving energies.

 

No.3: How Much Calories Does 1 kg of Fat Contain? 


The capacity of energy storage of fat is 9kcal per gram. It is 4 gram larger than that of protein. So many animals adopt fat as efficient energy storage.

Although 1 kg of fat is equivalent to 9000kcal, fat in a human body contains 20% water. 1 kg of fat in a human body is (9000 by 0.8 makes 7200) equivalent to 7200kcal. Only 1 kg of fat stores 7200kcal.

It is tough to think though, say, people weigh 70kg whose body of fat rate is 20% (70 kg by 0.2 makes 14kg). In other words, we live as if we were holding a huge tank around the waist.

 

No.4: How to Reduce Fat


I explained fat around the waist as an energy tank. All right then, how can we reduce it?

The answer is simple, just consume energy the tank stores. Since fat is necessary energy for our daily lives and exercise.  When you take an exercise, you consume the energy. So, aerobic exercise like jogging or walking exercise is effective ways to reduce fat.

 

No.5: To Increase Calorie Consumption


Well then, although I said in the article that the way of getting rid of fat is just to consume it, naturally it is not that easy.

For example, the calorie consumption of jogging depends on weight by distance regardless of speed. In the case of a person weighs 70kg, about 100km-running consumes 7000kcal which is equivalent to 1 kg fat. 100km- run means you reduce 1kg fat. That is too insufficient.

 

No.6: To Reduce Calorie Intake


Let’s reduce 7000kcal you take in a month. A bowl of rice has about 220kcal and 220kcal by 30 makes 6600kcal. It is equivalent to the calorie consumption people run 100km. It is needless to say, which is harder 100km-run every month or refraining from a bowl of rice.

 

No.7: Ideal Amount of Calories and How to Cut Fat


It is true that to consume calories is hard and to reduce the intake is an efficient way, but having on a diet without thinking anything.

For instance, if you would think that you had better not eat meat to avoid getting fat, you would lack the protein in the body, and which would weaken the function of your muscles, bones, organs and immune systems. Furthermore, a basal metabolism will be decreased and conversely make it harder for you to lose weight.

And then, it is important to have a balanced meal cutting on fat.

Let’s keep in mind that having a low-calorie, high-protein food and taking a light exercise to increase a basal metabolism. This the an ideal calories and how to reduce fat.

 

How were the articles?
Quite a lot of calories are stored in fat. In the short run, it is almost impossible to reduce fat only by an exercise.
However, in the long run, you can lose weight by 1kg per month, by 10kg per year by cutting back little on everyday meal.
Although it sounds like strange, it makes us realize how important what we do the simplest things every day.
