    you get calories from everything food (carbs, sugar, protein, fat, etc..) 1 gram of fat contains 9 calories. If it says calories from fat is 5 then there is less than one gram of fat. Not all fat is bad though. Stay away from saturated fats found in red meats and fried food.

    It means that X number of calories out of the total number of calories in one serving come from fat. For example, if there are 240 total calories per serving and 120 are from fat, then 50% of that food's calorie count comes from its fat content.

    Calories from Fat: One Serving, 110 (Whole Bag, 220). This tells you how many of the food’s calories come from fat. In this case, 110 of the 170 calories in a serving of the cheese crunchies come from fat. That’s a lot…almost 65%! The experts say you should only get about 30% of your daily calories from fat, which means this snack is very high in fat and probably not something you want to eat very often.
