All About Diet Food
Food is any material consumed in order to provide nutrition to an organism for a specific period of time. Food is generally of animal, plant or microbial origin, and often contains nutrients, like proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, or minerals, which the human body needs to survive. In simple terms, food is a living organism that provides the nutrients to live. It is a complex system which involves many different components including micro-organisms and energy.
The process of processing food starts by providing it with carbohydrates or sugars which are needed to break down the protein and carbohydrates into small pieces or starches, which can then be further broken down further into sugars or starches to form acids which are used for the digestion of food. During this digestion process, some of the food particles are left behind as fecal matter, a major contributor to the creation of greenhouse gases. Other food remains in the stomach cavity, where enzymes digest the remaining materials to produce energy needed to carry on with the digestion process and energy for further activity.
After all of the food has been broken down and digested, energy is stored in the body as glycogen, which is used to fuel the muscles. Carbohydrates also provide the energy needed to move from one cell to another, using blood as the delivery system for this energy. Some foods are more easily digested than others, depending on the type of carbohydrate and enzyme levels in them. To maintain a healthy and varied diet, you should always be eating a wide range of healthy carbohydrates and vitamins. You should also be supplementing your diet food with antioxidants, omega fatty acids, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and cofactors such as potassium, magnesium, sodium, and iron to name a few.
