What you eat is what you are. This quote is not from some health or diet guru. It just popped into my head and it kinda sounded nice and appropriate. The amount of energy of each type of food that we eat varies. Take for example fat. A kilogram of fat is equal to 9 calories while water, no matter how much, is zero calorie. Black coffee is zero calorie too. I used to drink 5-6 cups of black coffee when I was at the peak of my dieting ( 20 years ago?). The coffee suppressed my hunger but freaking kept me awake half the night. That was no problem though then because I used to keep really, really late nights ( 20 years ago).

Anyway, foods that contain a lot of fat and sugar like oil, fatty meat, cakes, ice cream, french fries, contain a lot more calories than foods which are mostly water and fiber e.g. fruits and vegetables. Alcoholic and pop drinks are also laden with calories. If you can't make it through the day without a soda, try diet pop. I do.
