What is Nutrition? 

Nutrition is getting food into the body and assimilating nutrients in those foods for regeneration, functions and energy purposes. There are 3 primary macronutrients; protein, carbohydrates and fats. They play fundamental source for variety body functions.

Nutrition topic divides into different sections, but you have to find out the character and functions of food that we consume at a daily basis. Therefore, there is much more in terms of a well-balanced diet.

Most of the times, we think of a diet as something very strict, which is not a good example. First, understand that term “diet”, which describes your eating habits. All of us have some diet – whenever you eat healthy or treating yourself with sugar or fast foods, it’s still labelled as a diet.

Unfortunately, our eating habits most of the times are not even close to be at a decent level. By meaning, that major of food, that we consume is rather very processed or doesn’t comprise a good nutritional value for our body to function as it does so. Whenever you will like it or not – we are what we eat!

While not getting into real deep sense of it, whenever you top up your body with bad fuel, naturally you cannot expect the best body functionality. Every macronutrient has a unique role in our body and when you don’t provide it in right amounts, this will have huge negative impact in the long run. That’s why, before selecting right setups for your nutrition habits, focus on understanding the importance of your food choices.

Components of Nutrition


Within different macronutrients, there is one specific factor which combines all of them into one family. Even where food elements have different responsibilities for our functioning, there is bound between them called CALORIE.

A calorie is a unit of energy. In nutrition, calories refer to the energy people get from the food and drink they consume, and the energy they use in physical activity. Without calories our bodies will be not able to function or react because there will be not enough energy for a variety of functions. The human body needs calories to survive. Without energy, the cells in the body will die, heart and lungs would stop, and the organs could not carry out the basic processes needed for living.

Getting deeper into the sense of calories, if people would consume the exact number of calories they need for daily body functions and tasks, they would have healthy lives and enough energy for all livings aspects; improved energy, recovery, regeneration and correct body functionality. Unfortunately, most of the times calories consumption is too low or too high, which will eventually lead to health problems.

Calories value will be different depending of the component of the food. There are three key components of the food; PROTEIN CARBOHYDRATES AND FATS. Below you can find calorific values of each component:
