Here's a extract from our 'Discover You' Nutrition Course regarding the almighty calorie and how it can positively and negatively affect your weight. Knowledge is power right..?


Food is in fact, energy

Nutrition is a massively in-depth subject & hopefully without upsetting the already educated I’m going to try and keep this simple, so let’s start with the basics. Food is in fact, energy. We need food to move, to keep our bodily functions working, to walk, talk and think, much in the same way a car needs petrol to move. This is extremely important to understand, especially when it comes to weight loss & gain.

All food types have their own individual amounts of energy

A Calorie (Kcal) is a unit of energy & each food item, due to its individual weight has its own Calorific Value. Let’s take a quick look at the energy values of some simple, everyday food & drink items:

100g Apple = 52 Calories

150g Banana = 130 Calories

50g Sliced Turkey = 62 Calories

Single slice of a 14” Pizza (with meat) = 330 Calories

125ml (small glass) Red Wine = 89 Calories

1 pint Carlsberg = 189 Calorie

By simply adding up your daily Calories, you can quickly ascertain whether you are eating too much or too little. Let’s use the above example. Your whole meal would equate to an energy intake of 852 Calories (or units of energy)
