Appreciate the response Dr. McDougall, but sorry, I am not able to understand it clearly.
on both top and bottom, the metrics seem to be the same, calories / gram.
are you saying that it is misleading to treat calorie contribution as traditionally taught, in terms of fat, protein, or carbs, but instead look at it by types of food? if this is the case, then is the nutrition composition handbook available somewhere online or as a book for purchase? I'd be interested in the calorie / gram, contribution of other foods.
fat = 9 calories/gram
protein = 4 calories/gram
carbohydrate (white sugar) = 4 calories/gram
I am using calculations derived from a nutrition composition handbook (calories/gram of a food):
meat = 4 calories/gram
cheese = 4 calories/gram
starch (rice, or potatoes, etc.) = 1 calorie/ gram.
