As you work to reach your nutrition goals, having knowledge about what you are eating goes a long way. Here’s a quick review of an important nutritional concept that’ll help you on the journey to making healthier choices.
Caloric density is a measure of how many calories are in a given food.
If a food has low caloric density, at any given weight or volume, the food has less calories. You can consume more of these foods without having a significant impact on your calorie consumption. If a food has high caloric density, at any given weight or volume, the food has more calories.
The primary differences between low-caloric density and high-caloric density foods are the amounts of water and fiber.
Low-caloric density foods contain more water and fiber than high-caloric density foods.
If the majority of your diet are foods that are low in caloric density, you will have a much easier time reaching your nutritional goals.
