# Thread: what does calories from fat exactly mean?

1. ## what does calories from fat exactly mean?

I only say this because I'm eating kashi wheat cereal and its 190 calories for 1 cup but only 10 calories from fat..

so 10 calories of 190 is fat?

2. yes.. the fat in that food has that many calories in it..

The total fat? wouldn't that go under saturated fat column?

4. calories are consisted of protein, fat, carbs.

so anything you eat can be broken down into what % of the cals were protein, fat, carbs.

for example.....if you ate 200 cals of chicken....maybe 175 of them were from protein and the other 25 were from fat. (yes bull****ting numbers but you get the idea)

in your instance....the other 180 calories are probably like 75-80% from carbs and the rest from protein

5. theres calories in fat, protein , and carbs.... those are the calories in fat.... probably saturated fat too.....

6. So basically lower the calories from fat on a high calorie product means that its technically not as bad? So whats the saturated fat say example 4.5grams for?

what throws me off is why its show saturated fat or total fat.. etc if it lists calories from fat

7. 1 gram of fat is 9 calories. the other calories come from protein and carbs (4 calories/gram each)

8. lets use this as an example

I don't see how you don't get this. Anyways, 170 of those calories come from Fat. Fat has calories. There are 19g of fat total, 1.5g of those are saturated fat.

Pretty much what he said.

Out of the total 19g of fat.. 1.5g is saturated..

the total calories from that fat are 170 cals.

Pretty simple bruh
