Food, Calories and Metabolism

Understanding food, calories and metabolism.

Understanding how your body will use the calories you consume can help you in setting up your nutritional program. Simply counting calories will not lead to body fat loss.


Not all foods are burned completely to produce energy. Some of them are only partially degraded to provide building blocks to support repair and growth. 


Generally speaking, the calories coming from protein are used to maintenance, repair and growth of new tissue and organs. 


Calories from carbohydrates are used for energy. Calories from conventional source of fat are prone to be stored as fat since they already have the same molecular structure as body fat.

 
Which is important to take in consideration what foods you eat because it influence your metabolism..
