    I am currently working on a degree in nutrition...and I can tell you....Calories are more important than fat. 1 pound of fat on your body is 3500 calories of food.

    The second most important thing is calories from fat. You want to avoid food that has half of the total calories from fat. If you read the back of the label...it might say for example...

    Calories 150
    Calories from fat 75
    Fat 8 grams

    The calories from fat are 50% of the total calories...this is not good. Most food has calories from fat that equal about a third of the total calories...this is good.

    I recommend keeping track of the total number of calories you eat in a day. Make sure you stay with in the range that spark people set for you under your nutrition tab.

    Its all about calories, though! You have to burn more calories than you eat to loose weight. Its simple math. Most diets and people make it more complicated than it needs to be.

    Sorry...I'm rambling! Good luck!
