So I was looking at the nutrition facts at one of the things I bought and it said:

"Calories 250
Fat Calories 10"

What are fat calories?:confused:

calories that come from the fat in food. so that fat calorie is included in the 250, its just leting you know 10 coems from the fat.

fat has 9 calories per gram, carbohydrates and protein around 4 calories per gram. i assume it means there only just over 1 gram of fat in it

Lol, yea. You will never gain weight eating celery. Takes more to eat it than you get from it.

Good job man, the last 20 are the hardest but keep on trucking! I used to be a fatty at 250 and i dropped 80 pounds. Then went up to 200 and that's where i've been at for a couple of years. Try lifting weights if you have them available so you don't lose too much muscle!
