Weight Loss

Weight loss with empty calories!

"Empty Calories" is just another name for describing "Junk Food".

In other words, Empty Calories describes foods high in calories but low in nutritional values, lacking the health-promoting micro-nutrients listed above.

Examples of foods containing mostly Empty Calories

  • French fries, fried chicken, chips and all other deep-fried foodsA large order of fries from a fast food chain can contain up to 570 kcal with a whopping 30 g of total fat and 8 g of trans fat! Tons of calories from fat but little micro-nutrients.

  • Candy, pop and other sweetened packaged foodsA can of pop provides ~130 kcal as well as additives and colorings. Again lots of calories from sugar but no micro-nutrients.

  • Beer, wine and all other alcoholic beveragesA can of beer provides ~150 kcal from sugar and not much anything else. In addition, calories from alcohol tend to be stored as fat in the abdomen.

  • Refined grains such as crackers, cookies, white rice and white breadRefined grains do provide some B vitamins, however that's it.

I have read your post and tend to lean towards your opinion also, however, there are lots of conflicting opinions online. Do you have any evidence to back this up?
