Cause of obesity
Remember that you get your energy and nutrients from what you eat. Energy is measured in calories. The body uses these calories in various activities such as beating the heart, thinking, pumping blood to all the organs, eating, talking, breathing, and absorbing food. In addition, your daily activities include walking, sitting, lying down, lifting weights, turning on the phone, running, climbing stairs, typing on a computer, and thinking. After these daily activities, the saved calories are stored in the form of fat by the body, so when the body lacks energy, this fat is used to regenerate energy, which leads to a person’s life. If a person constantly consumes more calories than they need, only the extra calories that accumulate daily in the form of fat and slowly fat will lead to obesity.

How can you know how many calories are in any food?
First, do you know what calories are? Calories are a measure of energy. The energy expended to raise the temperature from 1 gram of water to 1 degree Celsius is called 1 calorie. But in order to add calories to foods, it is important that you know the number of carbohydrates, protein, and fat. You can easily find this information on the internet. So, you can count calories based on this as described below.
1 gram of carbohydrate (carbohydrate) = 4 kcal
1 gram of protein = 4 kcal
1 gram of fat = 9 kcal
Based on this, knowing how many carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are in the diet can help you understand how many calories you get by eating. We can understand this with an example. Just like you take a packet of fry containing 11 grams of fat, 17 grams of carbohydrates, and 1 gram of protein. Now that you know how many calories you will get by eating these packet chips, then the method is very simple: –
11 g fat so 11x 9 kcal = 99 kcal
17 grams of protein or 17 x 4 kcal = 68 kcal
1 gram of protein, i.e. 1x 4 kcal = 4 kcal
We have three – 99 kcal + 68 kcal + 4 kcal = 171 kcal
You now have the information that you will get 171 calories by eating a small package of fry. Knowing the calories of all your foods makes it easier to control calories.
