Percent Calories from Fat

Percent Calories From Fat

Watching the percentage of fat calories in the food we eat is one way to maintain good health and a normal weight.

The 30 Percent Calories-from-Fat Standard

As a very general rule health experts recommend that not more than 30 percent of our total food calories should come from fat, although this does not mean that you should avoid all foods with more than 30 percent calories from fat. A healthy diet will comprise both low fat foods (e.g. 5-10 percent calories from fat, or less) and high fat foods (e.g. healthy oils, nuts, seeds, cheese etc).

Even so, it is useful to know how to calculate the percentage of calories from fat in order to identify high fat foods and drinks.

How to Calculate Percentage of Calories From Fat

(Grams of Fat, per serving) x 9
--------------------------------
x 100
(Total Calories, per serving)

Example

Candy Bar (12 grams fat, 250 calories)

Percentage calories from fat: (12 x 9) divided by (250) x 100 = 43.2 %.
