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:
Calcium is by far the most abundant metallic element in the body (1 to 2% by mass). It is mainly stored in the bones, of which it is an integral part. It contributes to the formation of the latter, as well as that of the teeth, and to the maintenance of their health. The mechanisms for maintaining a normal plasma ionized calcium concentration are, if necessary, at the expense of the skeleton and too great a decrease in calcium intake as well as an increase in excretion poses a risk to the skeleton and health. (osteoporosis in adults, rickets in children, increased risk of lead poisoning, etc.).
Calcium also plays an essential role in blood clotting, the maintenance of blood pressure and the contraction of muscles, including the heart, through its importance in neuromuscular functions. It is involved in the functioning of many enzymatic processes.
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.
Fiber: Fiber is a substance of plant origin that is neither digested nor absorbed by our digestive tract. However, our intestinal flora, by breaking them down, allows us to absorb carbohydrates in a variable and partial way, hence their participation in our energy intake. They therefore have an effect on our transit, but also allow us to reduce our energy intake (the satiating effect of Fiber), lower our total cholesterol level and limit the increase in blood sugar levels after a meal.
Vitamin B9, another name for folic acid (folate, folacin or vitamin M, pteroyl-L-glutamic acid, pteroyl-L-glutamate and pteroylmonoglutamic acid), is a water soluble vitamin.
Folic acid is the metabolic precursor of a coenzyme, tetrahydrofolate (FH4 or THF4), involved in particular in the synthesis of nucleic bases, purines and pyrimidines, constituting the nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) of the genetic material. THF is also involved in the synthesis of amino acids such as methionine, histidine and serine.
Iron is a trace element and is one of the essential mineral salts found in food, but can be toxic in some forms. An iron deficiency is a source of anemia and can affect the cognitive and socio-emotional development of the childs brain or exacerbate the effects of certain intoxications (lead poisoning, for example).
B vitamins facilitate the conversion of food (carbohydrates) into energy (glucose). Niacin is helpful in the process of regulating stress hormones and improves blood circulation. These vitamins are water soluble and the body does not store them.
Proteins are assemblages of amino acids, 9 of which are essential for the body. There are two sources of protein sources: proteins of animal origin and proteins of plant origin.Proteins are essential for all functions of the body because they provide amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of all body tissues, including muscle and body tissues. Eating protein at every meal can also make you feel full for a longer period of time.
Whether you eat protein to lose fat, gain muscle, or both, it is important to look for lean protein, or protein that contains very little fat. Some fats are important (see next section), but the type of fat is very important, so not all fat-rich proteins are equally healthy. Examples of lean proteins include skinless chicken, tuna, tilapia, extra-lean ground beef, egg whites, Greek yogurt and low-fat or fat-free cottage cheese, and tofu.
When reading a label, be sure to check the protein-to-fat ratio. Lean protein has much more protein than fat (for example, egg whites are fat-free but have a lot of protein).
Vitamin B2, corresponding to riboflavin, or lactoflavin, is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for the synthesis of flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) and flavin mononucleotide (FMN), two cofactors essential to flavoproteins.
Vitamin B2 plays an important role in transforming simple foods (carbohydrates, fats and proteins) into energy. It is involved in the repair metabolism of the muscles.
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.
Thiamine or vitamin B1 (or aneurine) is a metabolic precursor of thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), a coenzyme essential to certain decarboxylases. In animals, thiamine is a water-soluble vitamin from the family of B vitamins that they must find in their diet. On the other hand, it is synthesized by bacteria, plants and fungi. It is essential for the transformation of carbohydrates into energy by the Krebs cycle and is necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous system and muscles. It is in fact essential for the transformation of pyruvate produced by glycolysis and toxic for the nervous system.
In humans, a dietary vitamin B1 deficiency causes beriberi and can also cause Gayet-Wernicke encephalopathy.
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin represented by three main forms: pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine.
Present in a wide variety of plant and animal foods, it is necessary for proper cell function, particularly the nervous system and skin.
Isolated B6 deficiency is rare. It is most often associated with multiple vitamin deficiencies, particularly the other B vitamins. These deficiencies are observed in particular in chronic alcoholics.
Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin essential to the normal functioning of the brain (it participates in the synthesis of neurotransmitters), the nervous system (it is essential for maintaining the integrity of the nervous system and especially the myelin sheath that protects the nerves and optimizes their functioning) and for the formation of blood. It is one of the eight B vitamins. It is normally involved as a cofactor in the metabolism of every cell in the human body, especially in the synthesis of DNA and its regulation, as well as in the synthesis of fatty acids and in energy production.
It exists in several forms belonging to the cobalamin family: cyanocobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, the first two being its stable forms. Cobalamins have a chemical structure similar to heme but the central iron atom is replaced by a cobalt atom, hence their name.
