Food Groups Revisited
It’s always good to revisit the basics; so here we go, the food groups!
Calorie Yielding Foods
Carbohydrate aka Carbs

1 gram = 4 calories
Alcohol belongs to the carb group but one gram of alcohol gives you 7 calories.
Example: Chicken, pork, beef etc.
1 gram = 4 Calories

1 gram = 9 calories
Non Calorie Yielding Foods
This group does not give you the calories, but it is essential for our metabolism.
