Do A Diet By Counting Calories?
Good morning doctor. I just opened a website and found that 100 grams of white rice contains 129 calories. If I weigh 148 grams of rice, how do I count it? Also what if I weigh up to 231 grams of boiled eggs, with every 100 grams containing 15.59 grams of protein? thanks. Good morning.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Knowing the calories of each food and drink that you consume is indeed a very good thing, especially for those who want to go on a calorie diet. The calorie diet has the concept of knowing how many basic daily calories the body needs, for later the person will eat more calories if they want to gain weight, and eat less calories if they want to lose weight.
Regarding your question, the method is actually quite simple with less complicated math. With this information, you only need to know how many calories 1 gram of banana has or how many protein 1 gram of boiled egg has to multiply it by the weight of white rice you have.
For example, if 100 grams of white rice have 129 calories, it means that 1 gram of white rice has 1.29 calories. If so, then for 148 grams of white rice, you will only have 148 calories, which is 190.92 calories.
For boiled eggs, if 100 grams of boiled eggs have 15.59 grams of protein, it means that 1 gram of protein boiled eggs is 0.1559 grams. That way 231 grams of boiled egg protein 0.1559 times 231 equals 36.01 grams. And so it is with other calculations.
Our advice is to also complete your diet plan with regular and regular exercise according to your ability, regardless of whether you want to gain or lose weight, because it will make you healthier and improve your appearance. You can also consult a nutritionist if you want to find out the most suitable diet and choose the right foods for you.
So, hopefully it answers your question.
