You can convert calories into nutrient's quantity like this:

  • 1 gram of fat = 9 Calories
  • 1 gram of carbs = 4 Calories
  • 1 gram of protein = 4 Calories

So If you want your intake of calories from fat

Amount of fat (grams) =

(Daily Calorie Intake) X (Percentage of Calories from fat/100)/Calories per gram in fat

Now if your daily calorie intake is say 2000 Cals,

Amount of fat (grams) = 2000 X (30/100)/9 = 66.66 grams of fat

Please note that, this is only arithmetic. You have to see the quality and type of fat also. Because all fats including saturated, unsaturated, transfats and cholesterol have the same no. of Calories per gram, but all fats are not equally heathy. Especially transfats found in Pizza, cake, burger, fried chips and other fast foods is unhealthy

How could you determine the number of calories that you need in one day to be healthy?

The rule that a doctor told me was to multiply your weight by 10 and that is what your daily intake should be to maintain your weight. Similarly if you want to lose weight, tally your daily intake for a week, find your average daily intake, and reduce that by 500 calories. So for instance I weight 175 pounds, so I should be consuming 1750 to maintain my body weight.
