Carbohydrates

  • -  Carbohydrates are sugars and starches

  • -  They are the main source of energy for the body's muscle system

  • -  If too much sugar is eaten it turns from glycogen to fat

  • -  The largest percentage of carbs that should be in our diet is 55-60%

-  A carbohydrate has 4 calories per gram

Fats

-  most concentrated source of energy that we get from eating food


-  Essential Fats aren't made by our body so we must eat them to survive


-  Saturated fat can cause high cholesterol levels


-  Fats should not consume more than 30% of the body's caloric intake


-  Saturated fats can be found in tropical oils such as palm kernel and coconut oil 

Protein

-  Main building material for hair, skin, blood, nails, organs, and muscle


-  Made of 22 amino acids, 8 of which needed to be eaten because the body can't produce them


-  If an excessive amount of protein is consumed the liver stores it as fat


-  10-15% of our diet should be made up of protein


-  The word protein is derived from the Greek word "proteios" which means "primary"

Vitamins

-  Have no energy value but take part in metabolic actions


-  Help in development of body structures and turn fat and carbohydrates to energy


-  Too much vitamins can lead to toxic/poisonous levels


-  Experts advise that we take one multivitamin everyday


-  Polar bear liver is so rich in Vitamin A, that it can be fatal for humans if they eat it

Water

-  70-80% of the body


-  Gives the body structure and form


-  Too much water can cause blood cells to burst


-  1/2 a gallon a day


-  Water is made up of two Hydrogen atoms and one Oxygen

Minerals

-  Made in environment, absorbed by plants and animals


-  They help with metabolism, biological reactions, water balance, hormone production, and bone development.


-  Minerals don't do anything bad for the body they are vital for the body's survival


-  No certain amount of minerals should be consumed


-  All foods are rich in minerals
