The Importance of a High Protein Diet: Volume One

You may not realise it but protein is an important element in every cell of your body.

What Are Macronutrients?…

Micronutrients provide calories or energy. In order to grow, repair, digest or perform any bodily function you require specific amounts of macronutrients on a daily basis.

The word macro means large, this indicates that you need a lot of these types of nutrients regularly.

There are three types of macronutrient:

  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Carbohydrate

Each provide energy as explained, but they all provide different amounts of energy in a different form for the body to process.

Protein provides four calories for gram, carbohydrates seven calories per gram and fat nine calories per gram.

Aside from macronutrients the only other substance that provides energy is alcohol at seven calories per gram.

This is not considered a nutrient as we do not require it to survive… much to the surprise of some people I’m led to believe!

Alcohol provides what is termed ‘empty calories’. As you’re taking calories on board but without any nutrients that help perform vital processes.
