The first thing that you need to understand about losing weight is that almost everything you eat and drink contains calories. The only exception to this rule in terms of naturally occurring substances is water (more about water later).
Other than that, everything you consume contains calories, and it doesn’t really matter a great deal how these calories are taken. This is one of the reasons why there are so many virulent arguments between those who suggest that in order to lose weight, you need to cut down on carbohydrates and those who on the other hand suggest that fats are the real demon that needs to be banished from your diet, and why they are probably on the wrong track.

There is little quantifiable scientific proof that following one particular eating approach like this is likely to be more effective for losing weight than anything else. While it is not at all difficult to find seemingly qualified people like medical doctors who will tell you that one particular diet regime (e.g. a carbohydrate only diet) is going to help you lose weight more quickly than anything else, it is surely no coincidence that most of these ‘objective’ observers have some kind of vested interest in the product or proposal that they are supporting.
The fact is, both carbohydrates and fats are processed by the body to produce energy, and so it follows that if you eat too many of either one or the other or even both, you are going to put more weight on.
