The idea behind understanding and fixing our diet moves hand in hand with the exercise, yes also the food that we take otherwise this might offset the normal body functioning. The food diet and physical exercise serve up as the fuel to body, and ideally what you put in matter and else the body won’t be able to function you want it to work.
Diet programming has been terrible worry to many people, that is the fear of fats, high proteins and even high carbs. Though most problems people have are according to their own mindset and are not proved medically, like for instance the type of simultaneously altering body have been take to be as result of intake of certain food. It’s high time to follow this article to comprehend we don’t have to avoid some food that are crucial in our diet because of fear of the effect. In this work we will base our concern into into each macronutrient, what is composed of, it’s role in the body and the results of it’s deficiency;
Starting with protein, it is of indispensable nutrition part that should not lack . Protein makes up about 20% of the total body weight composition after water, primarily protein forms the major component of our bodies to name few,skin, nails, eyes etc and other large internal body organs like brain and the muscles of heart. Amino acids joins up to proteins of which some, the body is able to make from essential amino acid and other co-factors (like amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes) are 13 of them and are called non essential amino acid like. The second group of protein is the essential amino acid which can anly be found in the food diet we take and cannot be made in the body and are 9 in number such as methionine, leucine, lysine, valine etc.
As we’re aware protein serves in the maintainace and and growth of body tissues other than forming structural organs in the body as we have mentioned earlier , and hence it’s of great important to people of any age like lactating mothers, to children and also during the period of healing from wound, burns and survey for they helps to regeneration and producing of new cells and tissue. More so proteins are necessary in production of enzyme that stimulates most biochemical reactions in the body secondly hemoglobin that bears iron that if a fundamental in the red blood cell which helps in the carrying of oxygen. Thirdly hormones are formed from protein, like insulin which regulates blood sugar, thyroid hormone that control metabolic rate, finally they play a significant role in the human immunity to fight germs by formation of antibodies.
Proteins also helps to control the amount of water in the cell, other than keeping constant the amount of potassium and sodium balance which ensure proper nerve cell functions.
Carbs eating seems to be the center of most of our diet especially those willing to loss fats, but the internal and metabolic process to carry out some life sustaining processes require carbs, and carbs come in different forms some good others bad which are as a result some way in which are processed.
Carbs are made of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen molecules and are used to provide energy to the body once they are burnt during respiration to release ready energy, though they exist in many forms like sugar, starch and fiber. Carbs are of two type the simple and complex, the fibrous carb are dominant in food like green veggies, cabbages, spinach etc.
Carbs are we said they are associated with weight loss and this doesn’t mean they primarily affect weight by eating too much carbs, but simply the fact is they increases your appetite and you eat more hence weight gain. In the basic sense simple carbs are syrup, soda, table etc, these are bad carbs and should be avoided or taken in small indulgences, other like cake, beers and cookies are best carbs.
Complex carbs incudes the following oatmeal, apples, cardboard etc. Being complex does not bring the perception that are better for health than simple ones but this is not the case. The body requires both to be broken to usable energy to the body. Consider that the ingestion of carbs depends on your preference and the daily activities you take.
Fats like any other food they are of significant to the body though they have been viewed with a wrong perspective. Fats still are good to be taken in any balanced diet, other than being used as an alternative in respiration during starvation they form major structural organs like heart muscles and coat the nerves this stimulates the conduction of impulses by the body and hence response to any stimuli. Fats are of different types like;
Monounsaturated-this are found in avocados and some fruits cashew nuts and olive oil, these fats in the diet helps to lower bad and increase levels of good cholesterol they have also been used to reduce body weight.
Polyunsaturated-this helps the body to fight cholesterol and are mostly are found in foods like salmon, fish oil seeds etc
Saturated-though they have been linked to be related heart disease but studies have come to prove that there is no link between the two. It is proved that fats coat the heart and protect it from shock.
Finally to fix the diet, now that we have full knowledge of the food we eat, the primeval idea that some foods taken for they are of not any good to the body
