| | Help with reading food labels.
I know how to work out, done alot of studying on that area, but never took the time to learn how to eat healthy and what to look for and how to read the food labels. I just started reading, Nutrition for dummies. I got to the chapter about understanding calories, but I'm not understanding, just confused.
Can of mountain dew.
Serving size 1Can
Total fat 0%
TOTAL CARBS. 46g
Now each gram of Protein is 4 Calories, carbs are 4g, fat is 9 calories.
That is where I am being confused, I add the carbs 46x4=184g of calories. Why does CALORIES on the label say 170.
Questions are, do I add all the fat, Cards, etc. To get the accurate amount of calories, or on top where it says calories is all I need to focus really for calories?
I know you need calories, there your energy.
And advice on websites or anything would be great.
I typed this on my phone, sorry if theres mess ups
