By; Tarsa Cummings

Carbs



Carbs are the main source of energy for the body functioning and muscle activity. Carbs are needed to control the protein and fat metabolism.

Fats


Most concentrated form of energy out of the foods we eat. These are used as a secondary source of energy when Carbohydrates are used up. 

Protein


This is the main building material for blood, skin, hair, nails, organs and muscles. This is used as fuel source only when Carbohydrates and Fats are not enough.

Water


70-80% of the human body is made of water. Water is used to give structure and form to the body and it allows an environment necessary for cell metabolism. It also provides a way for the body to maintain temperature.   

Vitamins


These help the development of the body structure. These help convert 
Fat and Carbohydrates into energy. There are 2 types of vitamins, fat soluble and water soluble. 

Minerals


These help with metabolism, biological reactions, water balance, hormone production and bone development. These are important to the human body functioning system and can not be made by the body.
