What is the difference between calorie and caloric?
One is a noun (calorie) and the other is an adjective
A calorie is simply a measurement of an amount of energy. A food calorie tells you how much energy is in a food. The biggest difference is that in nutrition, the word calorie is used as short for kilo-calorie (or 1,000 actual calories), whereas in physics or other forms of science, a calorie is simply a calorie.
A fat calculator is used to estimate the percentage of a person's body that is made up of fat. This can be done roughly by using a person's height and weight, but there are more sophisticated ways as well. A calorie calculator on the other hand is used to estimate a person's daily caloric needs based on factors such as sex, age, body type and activity level.
The difference between nutrient dense Calorie foods and empty Calorie foods lay in the nutritional content (Vitamin & Minerals) contained in the food. Foods such as whole grains, fruits, nuts, etc. contain high amounts of nutrition (Vitamin & Minerals etc.). These are referred to as nutrient dense foods. The term "empty Calorie" refer to foods such as candies, cakes etc. which have a high Calorie count compared to the essential elements contained within the food.

But even if it does have calories, the caloric content is usully low and won't be a major calorie-contributor to your diet.
You don't really "find" your caloric intake, as it is something you participate in. You can track your caloric intake by simply monitoring what you eat and drink during a day. Simply keep track of each item consumed and add the calories from each of these in a day to get your daily caloric intake. Of course you will need to have the exact calorie count for each item that you eat and drink (which…
If I replace a 200 calorie snack with a 200 calorie candy bar and still only make a total of 1200 calories a day will I still lose weight or would the candy bar get in the way?
The jury is still out on this one. While caloric content does certainly have an impact on weight gain, some forms of energy (in this case, simple carbohydrates) are processed more quickly and enter the bloodstream more quickly. The danger of this is mostly the impact on hunger: you are more likely to be hungry later after the candy bar. Still, if you haven't exceeded your 1200-calorie diet and are exercising properly, there is not…
