VALUE OF FOOD

VALUE OF FOOD:The food that we eat contains what’s called as potential energy. Potential energy, by definition, is energy that’s stored in a physical system and has the potential to be converted into work. And the work part is called kinetic energy. As discussed in previous units, our food is a rich source of potential energy. It’s the chemical bonds within our food that contain this energy, and when these bonds are broken, we’re able to transfer this energy to ATP regeneration and, eventually, the ability to do work in the body.

potential energy: Energy stored within a physical system.

kinetic energy: The extra energy that something contains due to motion.

With most energy systems, the standard unit of measure for potential energy is the joule. Technically speaking, one joule is the amount of energy it takes to move an object that weights one newton (0.445 pounds) across a one-meter distance. In our everyday lives, however, other energy measures are more familiar to us, including Calories, kilowatt-hours, etc. That’s right, although some scientists use joules and kilo-joules (1000 joules) to describe the amount of potential energy in food; it’s still most common to measure this energy in Calories. Of course, there is a direct relationship between Calories and joules; one Calorie is equal to 4.18 joules. Therefore, if you eat a 1000-Calorie diet, you’re actually ingesting food that contains 4180 joules of potential energy.

joule: Unit of energy; four joules equal one calorie.

Calories: The amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree Celsius.

Technically speaking a Calorie is a unit of heat measurement. Specifically, a Calorie is defined as the energy needed to increase the temperature of a kilogram of water by one degree centigrade. However, historically, there has been

DO WE REALLY NEED PROTEIN?

DO WE REALLY NEED PROTEIN?
29 Apr

DO WE REALLY NEED PROTEIN-Dietary protein is important because the amino acids that make up our proteins are responsible for everything from our structure (contractile proteins, fibrous proteins)

– to our hormones (most of the non-steroid hormones)

– to our enzymes, to our immune chemicals (immunoglobulins and antibodies)

– to our transport proteins, and more.

Further, although our metabolic processes can make certain amino acids, without a diet rich in the essential amino acids

(those amino acids we can’t make) we cease to function.

Also, without adequate daily amino acid intake, small daily losses (due to amino acid breakdown) will put us in a net negative protein balance.

 While carbohydrate, and especially fat content of the body are fairly well maintained

it’s actually quite difficult to maintain a consistent amino acid pool without dietary intervention.

Indeed, maintaining the plasma amino acid pool is like keeping a sink full without a drain plug.

Amino acids are constantly lost from the pool

and therefore the only way to replenish them is to ingest protein through the diet.

This is why achieving a specific intake each day is essential to overall health and function.

If amino acid intake falls below daily amino acid degradation, things like enzymes and structural proteins are cannibalized.

If this process persists for long enough, vital functions shut down.

net negative protein balance: When nitrogen output exceeds nitrogen intake.

DO WE REALLY NEED PROTEIN?

Because dietary PROTEIN intake is important to maintaining our amino acid pools,

it’s important to note that the body has the ability to make certain amino acids, the 12 non-essential ones.

However, there are 8 amino acids, the essential ones, which can only be supplied by the diet. hence diet rich in protein will satisfy body needs

Isoleucine,leucine,valine,lysine,tryptophan,threonine,phenylalanine,methionine.

above are the amino acids we need to add from diet as our body cannot produce it.

WHAT IS BCAA?

WHAT IS BCAA?
29 Apr

WHAT IS BCAA

WHAT IS BCAA-BCAA basically stands for branch chain amino acid its the chain of amino acid,but the question is why we

NEED OF BCAA

while working out we need to preserve our muscle from wasting and converting it into energy and maintain strength to perform our workout.

for which we need essential amino acid,which human body cannot produce by its own so we need to give it by supplement.

(“Amino acid”-amino acid is the building blocks of protein)

BCAA SUPPLEMENT

BRANCH CHAIN AMINO ACID BASICALLY COMES IN TWO FORM POWDER AND TABLETS,IT CAN BE TAKEN ON ANY TIME OF THE DAY

BEST TIME TO TAKE?

IT’S ADVISED TO TAKE INTRA WORKOUT FOR MAXIMUM BENEFITS.

There are number of companies which claims to have best bcaa supplement but one thing we must keep in mind that bcaa is bcaa

Every bcaa works more or less the same way

BRANCH CHAIN AMINO ACID HAS THREE MAIN AMINO ACIDS THAT HUMAN BODY DOESN’T PRODUCE BY ITS OWN,HENCE WE NEED TO INSERT IT BY SUPPLEMENTS

EVERY FEW PEOPLE KNOWS THAT BRANCH CHAIN AMINO ACID IS MADE FROM HORSE HAIR,YES YOU HEARD IT RIGHT BRANCH CHAIN AMINO ACID IS PROCESSED FROM HORSE HAIR

WHAT ARE THE COMMON BENEFITS?

TAKING IT DURING WORKOUT HELPS IN REDUCING FATIGUENESS IT ALSO HELPS IN STOP MUSCLE WASTING.

PEOPLE WHO TAKE IT FOR LONG TIME MAY INCREASE MUSCLE MASS

TAKING BRANCH CHAIN AMINO ACID ALSO REDUCE THE POST WORKOUT MUSCLE SORENESS

IT HELPS TO PROVIDE ENERGY FOR MUSCLE TO PERFORE

BRANCH CHAIN AMINO ACID CAN BE TAKEN ANYTIME OF THE SEASON NO MATTER WHETHER YOU ARE BULKING OR CUTTING

PRO BODYBUILDERS FIND IT USEFUL WHEN THEY PERFORM FASTED CARDIO OR INTERMEDIATE FASTING

HOW IT WORKS?

WHEN WE DRINK BRANCH CHAIN AMINO ACID IT DO NOT GO THROUGH LIVER BUT IT MIXES DIRECTLY IN BLOOD AND STARTS TO WORKS AND RETAIN HARDLY ACHIEVED MUSCLES

BCAA MAINLY CONTAINS 3 ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS

  1. ISOLEUCINE
  2. LEUCINE
  3. VALINE

WHAT IS CARBOHYDRATE?

WHAT IS CARBOHYDRATE?
29 Apr

CARBOHYDRATE –

CARBOHYDRATE also known as “carbs” in our simple terms is the most controversial macronutrient of its time.there are many debates on internet about carbs being good or bad to human body.

let us not go into the topic and just know what is carbohydrate

WHAT IS CARBOHYDRATE:Carbohydrates make up one of the main three macronutrient categories,

the other two being fats and proteins. In our diets, sugars, starches,

and fibers are all considered carbohydrates due to their similar chemical structures.

Specifically, carbohydrates are made up of a collection of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen molecules.One unique characteristic of all carbohydrates is that they have a 2:1 ratio of hydrogen to oxygen.

Carbohydrates are typically classified by their general chemical structure—as monosaccharides, oligosaccharides, and polysaccharides—and these distinctions are based on their level of complexity.

Monosaccharides are the simplest form of carbohydrates since they contain only one sugar group. Oligosaccharides are short chains of monosaccharide units linked together in the form of disaccharides, trisaccharides, etc.

The most common oligosaccharides are the disaccharides, including maltose, sucrose, and lactose.

CARBOHYDRATE DIGESTION

Carbohydrate digestion entails the process of breaking more complex forms of carbohydrates (oligo- and polysaccharides) into the monosaccharides glucose, fructose, and galactose, for eventual release into the bloodstream as glucose.

Starch digestion begins in the mouth as salivary amylases assist in hydrolyzing these polysaccharides into more smaller carbohydrate chains.

Digestion continues in stomach as these salivary amylases continue to work on carbohydrates.

Passing on to the small intestine, pancreatic amylases take over, turning these smaller carbohydrate chains into units of maltose disaccharides.

Finally, each maltose is digested by the enzyme maltase into to two units 
of glucose.


carbohydrate is the primary source of energy that our body uses to function.the carbohydrate that we consume further get stored in our muscle tank as a fuel known as glycogen.

this glycogen in later used a glucose carry out body function

1gram of carbohydrate = 4 calories

WHAT IS KETO DIET?/DIET FOR FAT LOSS?

WHAT IS KETO DIET?/DIET FOR FAT LOSS?
29 Apr

WHAT IS KETO DIET?|DIET FOR FAT LOSS?: hello everyone today we are going to discuss the most controversial yet popular topic “keto diet” many of you want to use this diet in order to shred that fat in the fastest way,there are hundreds of debate on internet on the use and abuse of keto diet,

In today’s modern world people just want follow other blindly by seeing their result after following keto and all they want is to follow the same diet and get the desired result,without even knowing that it might be not for them,it may be dangerous for some in some case.

If you want to try a keto diet then learn the basics of it.

WHAT IS KETO DIET?|DIET FOR FAT LOSS?

Keto diet is known as “ketogenic diet” this is named because our body produce molecules called “ketones”
this is the another source of energy our body uses when we are on keto diet,this energy is used when our body has
very little glucose,

when being on keto diet our body switches to different mode of energy consumption,which mostly comes from fat,
and this fat burning process takes place day and night 24/7,this fat burning process is very drastic because 
our insulin level is very very low.

when on keto diet you must avoid heavy carbs loading,your carbs intake must be minimum generally you must intake
not more than 50 grams per day this number may reduce to 20 grams per day,the more you limit your carb intake the 
more you get the benefit from this diet as ketones gets activated when you are short on glucose.

when it comes to protein your protein intake must be moderate,whereas fats should be high

WHAT IS KETO DIET?|DIET FOR FAT LOSS?-Studies has shown following a keto you can cure your type 2 diabetes and control blood sugar
one thing that should be kept in mind while following KETO DIET is that the results might look amazing but keto diet is very unhealthy for long term,so always follow keto for not more than 2 months.
