Well, enough so that the number of calories from saturated fat is less than or equal to 10 percent of your total calories consumed. How many calories are you consuming in day? Take 10 percent of that. That's the high end of the number of calories from saturated fat that you can consume in a day. Divide by the number of calories in a gram of fat (9), and you'll have the number of grams of saturated fat you can consume without exceeding 10 percent.

Assuming you are on an 1800 calorie diet, you could consume up to 180 calories from saturated fat. Dividing this by 9, you would get 20 grams of saturated fat. However, it is probably more healthful to consume no more than 7% of calories as saturated fat, which is what is allowed on the American Heart Association's Step II diet. This would be 126 calories, or 14 grams of saturated fat a day.

How many calories do you have to burn off per gram of saturated fat?

One gram of saturated fat equals nine calories. However, the total grams of fat you eat in a day should not exceed 10% of your diet. Exercise will help you slim down, but you will be fighting a losing battle if you eat much saturated fat, because the body uses other chemicals (protein, carbohydrates, etc.) first for energy. It is a lot easier to make better choices than to try to keep up through exercise. See related links.

Each level of consumption in a food chain is called?

Each level in a food chain in which energy is exchanged is called a trophic order level or simply a trophic level. As a side note only ten percent of the energy exchanged between trophic levels is absorbed. For example, if a cat eats a bird only ten percent of the energy the bird contains that can be utilized cannot exceed ten percent of the total amount of energy present. (Think calories.)
