Resource summary

  1. Nutrition is the study of nutrients in food and how the body uses them to keep us healthy
    1. Proteins
      1. Carbon Hydrogen Oxygen Nitrogen
        1. only nutrient which contains nitrogen which is responsible for growth
          1. Amino acids - chemical composition which the elements of protein are arranged in small units
            1. Held together by peptide links which break down during digestion
              1. In order for protein to be absorbed into the blood
            2. Growth of body cells
              1. Repair of damaged cells
                1. Heat and energy production only after the other two have been completed
                  1. Production of important body chemicals such as hormones and enzymes and antibodies
                    1. 1g of protein for each kg of body weight

                                          2. Carbohydrates
                                            1. many carbohydrates are a plentiful supply of energy
                                              1. They are generally processed or refined during manufacturing which is where the grain is stripped of it's nutrients and additives and preserveatives are added
                                                1. These additives make up for the lost nutrients but they are chemicals so you will most likely get cancer or die if you eat white bread every day
                                                2. Try to eat unrefined grains such as brown bread,brown rice etc.
                                                  1. The basic unit of a carb is glucose.
                                                    1. Glucose is sugar

                                                        1. you will have a shorter life expectancy if your diet consists of mainly carbohydrates
                                                          1. Who cares we're all gonna die anyway
                                                            1. I must have skipped out on the desire to survive gene which is in most humans
                                                    2. CARBOHYDRATES SUPPLY EXTRA HEAT AND ENERGY
