Human body is actually a living machine and is
like all other machines. This living machine needs fuel to supply it with
energy. The fuel is provided by the food which we eat. However do we know how
much we need to stay healthy?

The energy value of food is usually measured in
calories. A calorie is the amount of heat which is required to raise the
temperature of 1 kg of water by 1 degree C. The number of calories which people
need per day varies. It depends on the activity which the people are involved
in. For example; people will need more calories for standing than for sitting,
people need more for running than for walking, etc.
The energy which is provided by food is in the
form of three kinds of chemical substances. They are carbohydrate, protein and
fat. Carbohydrate provides 8.8 calories per gram (cal/gm) of energy, protein
4.0 cal/gm and fat 8.0 cal/gm. Each food contains different proportion of these
substances.These three chemical substances are all important for body staying
