Where do the calories come from ?
Macronutrients are made up of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Their purpose is to provide energy to our body and to ensure the proper functioning of vital functions. A good distribution of macros, according to its needs, its morphology and its physical activity, allows to optimize its results, whether it is within the framework of a weight loss or a muscle gain.
To calculate its macronutrients we must calculate in grams, calories or percentage, the amounts of protein, fat and carbohydrates that our body needs to be at the top of its form. The official distribution recommendations for a healthy and balanced diet are as follows:
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) defines carbohydrates as a class of organic compounds containing one carbonyl group (aldehyde or ketone) and at least two hydroxyl groups (-OH). Included in this class are substances derived from monosaccharides by reduction of the carbonyl group, by oxidation of at least one functional group at the end of the chain to a carboxylic acid or by replacement of one or more hydroxyl groups by an atom of hydrogen, an amino group, a thiol group or any similar atom.
Sodium is a mineral that plays an important role in the body’s state of hydration. It is present in the blood and in the extracellular fluid in which cells are bathed. Sodium also helps maintain the acid-base balance and is essential in the transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contraction. However, in excess it can have deleterious consequences. This is why current recommendations aim to limit sodium consumption.
Consuming sugar provides short-term chemical energy, but it is not a form of energy storage for the body. Some of the sugar consumed can be used immediately for energy if needed within minutes, some will be stored in the liver and muscles (as glycogen) for use within hours, and, if there is an excess, some will be converted to fat (triglycerides) for storage in fat cells.
As soon as we consume glucose, a component of sugar, insulin is secreted: its main role is to promote the use of glucose by all the cells in the body. Insulin also stimulates glycolysis, blocks lipolysis (use of stored fat) and promotes lipogenesis through an enzyme (triglyceride synthase), i.e. the production of fat in adipose tissue. Indeed, the hepatic glycogen stock is limited and the muscular glycogen can only be used by the muscles themselves.
This regulation of glucose, with a system of storage and release, provides a continuous supply of glucose to the brain. Although the brain accounts for only 2% of body weight, it uses 20% to 30% of the available glucose, which is its only source of energy (apart from ketone bodies synthesized during prolonged fasting).
