What is Food?
We need food to lead our life. But most of us don’t know about healthy food. I shall try to give you important information regarding healthy food.
Foods provide nutrition support for a creature or organism. Usually, food is of plant or animal origin. Different food items have different nutrients, such as vitamins, Carbohydrates, Fat, Protein, and Mineral Salt. It supplies energy to maintain life, or stimulate growth in the organism.
Food can be categorized into two groups:-
- Body preserving food
- Body sustaining food
A body preserving food increases immunity in our body and the body sustaining food supply nutrition in our body.
Definition of a Calorie
In general definition, Calorie is a unit of energy. When it is a calorie that measures a certain quantity of energy that we consume from the food and beverages. All of us need this energy to lead our life. Our daily activity which we do is dependent on energy that comes as calories.
If you eat healthy food that provides you calories as energy. Several food items contain calories but all calories are not healthy. For example, Sodas are generally referred to as empty calories. That indicates that it doesn’t have nutritional value though it contains calories.
Impact of Calories to gain weight
The food contains calories that provide vital energy. If you eat calories more than your requirement, you will gain weight. High-calorie food increases weight. Extra calories that we eat are stored as body fat. A certain amount of stored fat your body needs to stay healthier. Whenever it is much more than the required level extra calories as fat can cause health difficulties.
Hence, it is important to understand your caloric needs.
To maintain our weight according to our height we have to take low-calorie food. Some general low-calorie foods are fruits, vegetables, all kinds of pulses, salads, cheese, yogurt, carrots, lemon, sweet pumpkin, and so on.
The energy level in various kinds of food is different. The 3 macro-nutrient calorie is not the same. The macronutrient calories per gram are given below.
- Protein contains 4 calories per gram
- Carbohydrate contains 4 calories per gram
- Fat contains 9 calories per gram
As fat provides more calories in each gram, hence many healthy eaters avoid that kind of food as much as possible. But a few types of fat is necessary for our body. Polyunsaturated fat can be a perfect example, which is helpful for a healthy heart.
Calories of all types of cooked foods will not always be the same. It relies on other food ingredients. If you are an average man then you need almost 2500 calories to maintain your health, and 2000 calories to lose almost .5 kg per week.
On the other hand, women need 2000 calories per day to sustain their health, and 1500 calories to lose approximately .5 kg weekly.

A very low-calorie diet range is 800 kilocalories or less per day. It doesn’t suit everyone. Take advice from your doctor that if this is appropriate for you. It is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women and is not suitable for teens or children except for any treatment programs.
