Our expert says:
You are quite correct that both the energy and fat contents of foods must be taken into account. Fat provides 9 cal per gram, while protein and carbohydrate only provide 4 cal per gram - a large difference. A great deal of emphasis is placed on reducing fat intake to reduce weight and most dietitians use a low-fat, high-fibre diet to promote weight loss in patients.
