Title: Need of Nutrition for Healthy Body

  • Have you ever think why nutrition is so
    important? Is it really that important or is it
    just a fad that has been going on for the past
    few years? If you want a genuine answer, then it
    is a yes. Nutrition is of paramount importance
    and there is no second opinion about it.
    Nutrition is the basis for all types of physical
    fitness. Be it a combat sport like boxing, MMA,
    or Muay Thai, be it an endurance sport like
    marathon running or relay racing, be it athletics
    like sprinting, high jumping, long jumping, or be
    it sports, nutrition is always the epicenter of
    every physical ordeal.

  • Nutrition is very important for physical fitness.
    It is essentially what we eat. It can be
    classified into two broad categories
  • Macronutrient
  • Micronutrient

  • Macronutrients or macros, as they are called
    popularly among gym folks, are the major chunks
    of nutrients that are needed for the maintenance
    of all the bodily functions. Now, these
    macronutrients can be broken down into three sub
    categories, that is, proteins, carbohydrates, and
    fats. They are further classified into three
  • Proteins
  • Carbohydrates
  • Fats

  • Proteins are required for building lean muscle
    tissues. Building lean muscle mass leads to
    muscle hypertrophy, that is, increase in the size
    of muscles. Proteins are also important because
    literally all the cells in our body are made it.
    Proteins are also required for building and
    repairing damaged tissues and cells. Proteins can
    be further broken down into amino acids, which
    can further be divided into essential amino
    acids, semi-essential amino acids, and
    non-essential amino acids.

  • Carbohydrates are the primary sources of energy
    for human beings. It also constitutes the largest
    share in diets. However, this fact depends on the
    needs of the person. Carbohydrates are broken
    down into simple sugars, that is, glucose, which
    is then further stored as glycogen in the liver
    and in the muscles as a source of energy.
    Carbohydrates or carbs are needed by the body to
    carry our physical activity. Carbohydrates can be
    divided into two sub divisions, that is, simple
    carbohydrates and complex carbohydrates.

  • Fats are of two types Dietary fats and Stored
    fats. Dietary fats can be actually used to burn
    more fat from the body, on the other hand, stored
    fats have no relation whatsoever with dietary
    fats. That being said, dietary fats are also used
    as a source of energy by the body when there is a
    low supply of carbohydrates. It can be said that
    fats are the secondary source of energy for the
    body. Fats can be further divided into trans
    fats, saturated fats, and unsaturated fats.

  • Micronutrients are the smaller particles in our
    nutrition that too play a crucial role in our
    well-being and physical fitness. Micronutrients
    are of two types i.e. the vitamins and minerals
    that constitute the food we eat along with
    macronutrients. Vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin
    Bs, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K,
    and minerals like zinc, iron, magnesium, sodium,
    copper, selenium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus,
    and antioxidants are very important components of
    our diets.

  • There are two forms of vitamins water soluble
    and fat soluble. Water soluble minerals such as
    B-complex vitamins and vitamin C gets easily lost
    through bodily fluids and must be replaced each
    day. Fat soluble accumulate within the body and
    are not needed on the daily basis. The examples
    of fat-soluble vitamins are A, D, E and K.

  • Minerals are the substances which our body needs
    for the health and growth. Minerals are of two
    types Macrominerals and Microminerals. Examples
    of Macrominerals are calcium, magnesium,
    phosphorus, potassium, sodium, etc. Examples of
    Microminerals are iron, copper, iodine, zinc,
    fluoride, etc.
