Foods Calories

Do All Foods Contain Calories?

Almost everything we eat or drink, with the exception of water, contains calories.

There are four basic food groups – carbs, fat, protein and alcohol. Each of these basic foods contains a different number of calories per gram.

  • Carbs contain 3.75 calories per gram.
  • Fat contains 9 calories per gram.
  • Protein contains 4 calories per gram.
  • Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram.

The number of calories which an individual food contains will therefore depend upon how many grams of carbs, fat, protein and alcohol the food contains.
