2. Quality Calories (QC) Aren't Just Numbers


Foods with similar calorie content may differ in the nutrients they provide. For example, whole grains of bread, pasta, and rice have more fiber than refined grains. Likewise, processed meats contain more salt than unprocessed lean meats, even if they have the same number of calories. If we just think of calories as numbers, then we can choose to avoid foods that are relatively high in calories but also have high nutritional value such as nuts and seeds, oily fish and olive oil or canola, all of which can be included as part of a healthy diet.

Of course, it is important to think about portion sizes to control calorie intake to aid in weight management and so consumers need to remember to use QC quality calories in moderation. There are simple ways that people who want to manage their weight can do this; for example, keep the number of nuts to a small number or use a spoon to measure the oil.
