Those of us that count calories know how difficult it can be to try and budget them throughout the day. But like this infographic from Greatist reminds us, not all calories are created equal. It doesn’t do you much good to stay under your allotted number of calories if what you’re eating has little or no nutritional value. To make your calories really count, look through this infographic guide and make sure you’re getting the right amount of macronutrients throughout the day. It also shows you how to calculate your daily calorie needs and how to adjust it if you want to lose or gain weight.
