(23:34:05) GoldenJimbo007: Corey you need a huge teaching on how calories work and what foods are good etc
(23:34:08) GoldenJimbo007: WHEN to eat etc
(23:34:23) DrInvertigone: Please do, Jim. I need to get in good shape.
(23:35:21) GoldenJimbo007: Alright
(23:35:23) GoldenJimbo007: lets start with the basics
(23:35:26) GoldenJimbo007: WHAT is a calorie
(23:35:30) GoldenJimbo007: Why is it important
(23:35:36) DKK5: lol quiz
(23:35:55) DrInvertigone: Obviously something you need to have. It gives you energy. You cannot consume more than 3500 in a day or you gain weight, same goes if you burn 3500 of them.
(23:36:08) DKK5: rofl
(23:36:08) GoldenJimbo007: A calorie is a unit of energy, sure
(23:36:20) GoldenJimbo007: There are 3500 calories in a pound of fat, that's where you're getting that from
(23:36:30) GoldenJimbo007: Units of energy that go unburned in your body get stored as body fat
(23:36:41) GoldenJimbo007: And extra units of energy needing to be burned are taken from your stored body fat
(23:36:52) GoldenJimbo007: Fat has the highest concentration of energy of any food group, with 9 calories per gram of it
(23:36:57) GoldenJimbo007: Carbs have 4, protein have 4
(23:37:05) GoldenJimbo007: meh I'm done
(23:37:36) Thiradell: lol
(23:37:42) DKK5: loooool
