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:
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.
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).
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).
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 E is a fat-soluble vitamin covering a set of eight organic molecules, four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. The most biologically active form is α-tocopherol, the most abundant in the diet being γ-tocopherol. These molecules are present in large quantities in vegetable oils. They act, along with vitamin C and glutathione, essentially as antioxidants against reactive oxygen derivatives produced in particular by the oxidation of fatty acids.
The K vitamins are a group of fat-soluble vitamins required for the post-translational modifications of certain proteins involved primarily in blood coagulation but also in the metabolism of bones and other tissues. The use of the letter K comes from the German Koagulation.
They are mainly synthesized by bacteria fermenting certain cheeses or plants, intestinal bacteria, or come from food (especially green plant foods, as they are linked to chloroplasts). They are also found in animal fats.
They promote the synthesis of blood clotting factors, the fixation of calcium by the bones, the flexibility of arteries and the good condition of blood vessels in general, tendons, cartilage and other connective tissues. New properties have been discovered more recently, for example in the control of inflammatory states, in cell division, in cell migration, in cell specialization, etc.
