Calories in Protein

  • There are 4 calories in each gram of protein.
  • Protein contains the same number of calories as carbohydrates.
  • Protein is essential for good health, but it is better to reduce your intake of high-calorie animal protein (e.g. from cheese and meat) and eat a little more lower-fat and lower calorie vegetable protein (e.g. from beans, soybeans, lentils, nuts.)
  • The best way to obtain the right amount of protein (and calories) is to follow a balanced diet, as outlined in the Food Pyramid Guidelines.
  • If you are trying to lose weight, it is best to follow a diet plan which is low in fat, high in healthy carbohydrates with modest amounts of protein and 1200+ calories.
  • High protein, low calorie diets are not recommended, neither are very low calorie diets, irrespective of protein content.
