Nutrition Components Breakdown
PROTEIN is the building blocks of muscle. It is made up of amino acids and is used in the body to maintain and grow body tissues. It plays a crucial role in nutrition by providing a source of amino acids to be used for muscle protein synthesis and recovery from intense workouts to fuel the maintenance and growth of skeletal muscle. Animal proteins tend to be superior to plant proteins because of their higher portions of leucine, isoleucine, and valine (BCAA). CARBOHYDRATES are the leading and most efficient energy source in the human diet. For our purposes of fat loss, unprocessed or minimally processed complex carbohydrates are the most effective sources.

DIETARY FAT is the least required macronutrient, with its primary function being to absorb fat-soluble vitamins (A,D,E, and K). Generally, saturated fats are solids at room temperature, and unsaturated fats are liquids. Polyunsaturated fats (Omega 6 and Omega 3) are essential to human nutrition because they are no synthesized in our bodies. They can be found mostly in nuts, sees and seed oils.

VITAMINS and Minerals play critical roles in macronutrients' metabolism and in the body, like calcium in your bones. Antioxidants like Vitamin C and E work with enzymes to "clean up" cellular damage and debris areas. Micronutrients are often downplayed in the fitness industry, but their roles cannot be underestimated. Immune function, for example, relies on vitamins and minerals to effectively fight off bacteria and viruses all around us. Adequate micronutrients can be consumed via fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

FIBER is another downplayed nutrition component in the fitness industry that can make a big difference in your physique. Beyond keeping your bowel movements regular and aiding in digestion/absorption, the healthy, normal bacteria living in your gut use fibre to create short-chain fatty acids, which have a host of benefits, including, specifically, increased stored fat utilization. Fat loss is why you're reading this, and that is a direct effect of eating fibre. Legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables have the highest fibre content.

HYDRATION provides your muscles with the nutrients that we've been talking about this whole time. Adequate hydration via water intake allows your blood to have enough volume and flow to carry the absorbed macro-and micronutrients to their target tissues and enact their effects.
