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.
Copper is a trace element essential for life (humans, plants, animals, and micro-organisms). The human body normally contains copper at a concentration of about 1.4 to 2.1 mg per kg. Copper is found in the liver, muscles and bones. Copper is carried in the bloodstream by means of a protein called ceruleoplasmin71. After copper is absorbed from the intestine, it is transported to the liver, bound to albumin. The metabolism and excretion of copper is controlled by the delivery of ceruleoplasmin to the liver, and the copper is excreted in the bile. At the cellular level, copper is present in a number of enzymes and proteins, including cytochrome c oxidase and certain superoxide dismutases (SOD). Copper is used for the biological transport of electrons, e.g. the “copper blue” proteins, azurine and plastocyanine. The name “copper blue” comes from their intense blue color due to an absorption band (around 600 nm) by ligand / metal charge transfer (LMCT). Many mollusks and some arthropods, such as horseshoe crab, use a copper-based pigment, hemocyanin, for oxygen transport, rather than hemoglobin, which has an iron nucleus, and their blood is therefore blue, and not red, when it is oxygenated72.
Fat is one of the three main groups of macronutrients in the human diet, along with carbohydrates and protein, and the main components of common food products such as milk, butter, tallow, lard, bacon and cooking oils. They are an important and dense source of food energy for many animals and play important structural and metabolic functions in most living things, including energy storage, waterproofing, and thermal insulation. The human body can produce the fat it needs from other food ingredients except for a few essential fatty acids which must be included in the diet. Dietary fats are also the carriers of certain flavor and aroma ingredients and vitamins which are not soluble in water.
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.
Magnesium is involved in more than 400 biochemical reactions. It is particularly involved in the osmotic transport of glucose, the insulin transport of glucose and in all stages of energy production. A major mechanism of biochemical activation, consisting of adding a phosphate group to a protein, magnesium is a cofactor of phosphorylation. It is also an actor in homeostasis, a mechanism allowing the conservation of an internal balance (cell, heart rate, urination, digestion, body temperature, etc.) and an essential cofactor in the polymerization of nucleic acids.
Manganese is a trace element (necessary for humans to survive), manganese deficiency (less than 2 to 3 mg / day for an average adult), leads – depending on the animal model – to reproductive disorders for both sexes, bone malformations, depigmentations, ataxia and alteration of the central nervous system.
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.
A precursor and constituent of coenzyme A, vitamin B5 promotes the growth and resistance of the skin and mucous membranes. It is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins and participates in the synthesis of certain hormones. Pantothenic acid is destroyed by heat in aqueous solution.
Inorganic phosphorus in the form of the phosphate PO3−4 is required for all known forms of life. Phosphorus plays a major role in the structural framework of DNA and RNA. Living cells use phosphate to transport cellular energy with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), necessary for every cellular process that uses energy. ATP is also important for phosphorylation, a key regulatory event in cells. Phospholipids are the main structural components of all cellular membranes. Calcium phosphate salts assist in stiffening bones. Biochemists commonly use the abbreviation “Pi” to refer to inorganic phosphate.
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.
Saturated fatty acids are lipid molecules in which all carbon atoms carry the maximum possible hydrogen atoms. No hydrogen atoms can be added, the fat is said to be “saturated” and all bonds between carbon atoms are single (no carbon-carbon double bonds).
The impact of saturated fats on the body depends on the food you eat and its quantity. In excess saturated fatty acids form bad cholesterol in the body, which leads to clogged arteries. But, in reasonable amounts, saturated fatty acids are good for the body because they provide energy and vitamins (A, D, E, K).
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).
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.
