Eating should be a pleasurable experience, not one that causes guilt or remorse.
Getting enough food is rarely a problem, but getting enough good nutrition can be a challenge.
What should you eat to stay healthy?
Nearly everyone has an opinion, from your best friend to the daily newscaster.
There is a lot of advice available, but the basics for good health have not changed since the first fad diets were introduced centuries ago. Weight Loss by Design has preached the information below for years!
Your body needs over 45 different nutrients every day. These nutrients are essential for health and must be provided in the foods eaten. These nutrients can be divided into five classes:
Carbohydrates (starches, sugar, and fiber)
Proteins (includes 22 amino acids)
Fats (saturated, monosaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids)
These nutrients work together and interact with body chemicals to perform several functions.
Supply substances that function in the regulation of body processes
Furnish fuel for energy needed by the body
Some jobs require that nutrients work together as a team.
These jobs are nutrient-specific.
They cannot be done by other nutrients—an extra supply of one nutrient doesn’t make up for a shortage of another.
That’s why a balanced diet including all food groups is so necessary.
Your body needs all of these nutrients, not just a few.
Some nutrients need to be replenished every day from food, while others can be stored in the body for
There are 6 classes of Nutrition
Of the six classes of nutrients, only 3 provide energy:
Carbohydrates Fats Proteins.
Energy is the body’s most basic need.
Energy is used when you breathe, when the heart pumps blood and when you sit, stand and walk.
The more vigorous the activity, the more energy is required.
The energy contained in a carbohydrate, fat or protein is measured in kilocalories,
The calorie is a measure of energy available to the body.
When you eat something, the number of calories it contains is the number of energy units it provides to the body for its needs.
The calorie is also a measure of energy your body uses in everyday life or exercise.
A bomb calorimeter is a special instrument used to measure calories in food.
The food is first dried to remove water and then placed in a special container that rests in water. When the food is burned, heat is transferred to the water.
The amount the burning food heats the water is the measure of calories.
1 gram of carbohydrate = 4 calories 1 gram of protein = 4 calories 1 gram of fat = 9 calories
Calories may also be added to food intake by consuming alcoholic beverages.
Alcohol is not a nutrient because it cannot be used in the body to promote growth, maintenance, or repair. It is a toxin that is broken down as an energy (calorie) source and can be converted to fat.
Nearly all foods supply energy or calories.
However, some provide more calories than others.
No single food or kind of food is “fattening” by itself.
When the energy provided in food is not used – whatever food it is – the excess is stored in the body in the form of fat. Storage of too many excess calories results in being overweight.
