    how can a fried chicken be “empty calorie” item.

    i very much would like to know.

    Fried chicken is empty calorie item because it is usually fried with lots of oil. Just read this article and you will understand better. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    P.S – Only guilty of eating white rice :P . Never did indulge on sweets, butter, high fat foods or fast foods, candy or pop and don’t drink any alcoholic beverages.

    they did not desribe why does a fried chicken considered an empty calorie food.

    they only said something about the oil, but not the chicken itself.

    Yeah, people would have mistaken empty calories as zero calories. Perhaps a better term should be used to replace the former one. Anyway, I thought burgers do have some nutritional values since burgers do have veggies and meat in them?

    Hmm most of the time empty calories are refer to soda and etc. As a from a chinese background, i also got to drink those herba drink which is home made and not from those store with preservative. For example like “lo han ko” where u made it with lo han ko, white fungus, and lotus seed with those rock sugar until its sweets but not that sweet till like sugar water this type of herba drinks are believe good for health so with those sugar in it isit still consider as empty calories? Have been wondering about this ever since started to stay healthy and cut down a lot of those empty calories drinks like soda and chips so is this home made herba drink consider as healthy or bad?

    “how can a fried chicken be “empty calorie” item?”

    I believe they mean too many calories in comparison to nutrition the piece of food offers. In other words no amount of protein/carbs/vitamins in it justifies the empty calories from frying oil.

    if you stuff a multi-vitamin into a turd then you are still eating a turd.
