Animal Products and Cheese

When it comes to animal products (or fibreless resources), we cannot sort them according to their W factor since it is infinite. So instead, we sort according to the E factor or energy density.

Use this analysis next time you cook something with cheese in it.

I spent the first part of my life playing piano and composing music. I graduated from UCLA with a degree in music composition and cognitive science. Then I became a User Interface Engineer for four years. I moved home to Raleigh, NC to be closer to my family and began to freelance. On the side, I created a company called Elemental Nutrition & Wellness that uses interactive resource calculators to give people the tools they need to lose weight and boost nutrition. Now I have my own practice as a holistic nutritionist. I help people meet their weight loss goals by fostering self-motivation. You can reach me at
