The body requires energy to perform physical activity and other bodily functions. This energy is derived from the food that is consumed and is broken down into glucose, which the body uses as fuel. Carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are the main sources of energy in the diet. The body will first use glucose for energy, but if glucose stores are depleted, the body will begin to use stored fat and eventually protein for energy. It is important to consume a balanced diet that includes all three macronutrients to support energy production and overall health.
