Most of the packaged foods in the UAE have nutrition facts labels. If you need to know your calorie intake per day, then you will have to do a little extra math. If you need to know the exact number of calories coming from fat, protein and carbs, checking your food labels will definitely help you.
Here are the simplified ways to calculate calories:
• Locate the nutrition facts on the labels.
• Note the amounts of protein, carbohydrates and fat contained in the item.
• Total the calories for each macronutrient.
Compare the calories of different nutrients to their recommended daily values.
