    • Nutrients
      Nutrients are the substances in food that provide the raw materials and energy your body needs to carry all its essencial processes; it also gives us energy
      There are various types of nutrients, for example carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water
    • Carbohydrates
      Carbohydrates are the “first burn”, also known as the first source of energy you use when exercising
      Simple carbs- Small molecules made of sugar, like glucose. It’s very small, therefore there’s no need to be broken down into smaller molecules. Examples: honey, milk/dairy products, regular soda, many processed snack food, etc.
      Complex carbs- Larger molecules, like starch. Do need to be broken down into smaller molecules. Examples: bread, fruit, pasta, chocolate, etc.
    • Lipids
      Lipids provides energy, form part of the cell membrane; fatty tissue also protects and supports your internal organs; insulates your body.
      Unsaturated Fats- They are liquid at room temperature. Example: cooking oils
      Saturated Fats- Solid at room temperature. Too much clogs vessels. Example: Butter
    • Proteins
      They are needed for tissue growth and repair and they play an important part in chemical reactions in our cells.
      They are made from amino acids
    • Vitamins
      Vitamins are good for your whole body and a little of each of them would be great
      Vitamin A- good for hair and bones
      Vitamin B- prevents anemia and helps RBC
      Vitamin C- helps immune system
      Vitamin D- helps bone formation
      Vitamin K- helps blood clotting
      Water Soluble- gets dissolved in water. Example: B,C
      Fat Soluble- get dissolved in fatty tissue and stays in body a little bit longer. Example: A, D
    • Minerals
      Aren’t related to living things. Body needs a little bit of each mineral to carry out chemical reactions.
      Calcium- helps build teeth, bones and helps muscle
      Iodine- helps in release of energy
      Iron- needed for RBC
      Potassium- helps maintain water, muscle and never balance
      Sodium- maintains water balance and nerve function
    • Water
      Water is the most essential nutrient of all because most of the body’s vital processes (example: breaking down nutrients and chemical reactions) take place in water.
