How Many Calories are in FAT?

Fat has 9 calories per gram, compared to 4 calories per gram for protein or carbohydrates. But all fat isn’t the same. AGAIN – it is not calories in calories out. Saturated fat that is found in whole milk, butter, full-fat cheese, and fatty cuts of red meat makes your body produce less leptin and more ghrelin. Leptin is a hormone that quells appetite and gherlin stimulates appetite. But unsaturated fats, like that in olive oil and avocados, helps regulate your appetite by producing more appetite-suppressing leptin and LESS appetite stimulating ghrelin. UGGG
