When eating clean to get in shape it's important to keep in mind our numbers. Now, fat calories are definitely not a bad thing, but once we've hit our daily needs we need to remember where additional calories stack up faster.
Carbohydrates = 4 calories per gram
Protein = 4 calories per gram
Fat = 9 calories per gram
Alcohol = 7 calories per gram
What are the safest calories you can overeat once you've reached your daily calorie limits? Protein. If you aren't feeling full or satisfied after meals, and looking for a solution, then protein is your friend. Try adding some extra (clean) protein foods into your meals. This will help curb hunger and help keep you satisfied for longer, as well as help keep your energy levels higher.
