·         Energy production

Calories are the unit used for measuring energy stored in food. This energy provided by the food calories is needed for every function of the body, including thinking, physical work, and growth and healing. Proteins, carbohydrates and fats are the major building blocks of energy. After ingestion of food, carbohydrates break down into glucose, which provides raw energy which is either used immediately or stored in the muscles. Complex carbohydrates like whole grains, vegetables and fresh fruits provide a balance of calories and nutrients, whereas simple carbs such as sugar and white flour arehigh in calories and very low in nutrients, making them a poor choice for energy production.
