High Energy Food

High Energy Food

There is the old adage that "you are what you eat." Although the phrase may be cliché, it really is true, especially when you investigate how the body uses its food energy. The key to having more energy, feeling better about yourself, and having high stamina all relate back to the type and quality of food that you are ingesting.

Your body process food to be used as fuel. Think of it the way that you would think about oil or gasoline on an automobile. You know that if you put good quality oil in your car that it is going to run better. The same thing applies to the way that your body uses food for energy. If you eat healthy high energy foods, your body will perform better than if you feed it junk food.

It is important to note, however, that even if you are putting healthy high energy food into your body, if you want to lose weight, you have to make sure that you are not exceeding a certain caloric intake for your body. The reason for this is that although your body does burn food for fuel, if it does not need all of the calories, then it will begin to store it as fat.

What happens is that the digestive system converts food into energy to help the body do all of the things that it needs to do, like move your body, work your brain, and other organs. However, after the body has gotten what it needs to complete those functions, any remaining surplus is stored as body fat--a very quick and simple explanation of this complex process.

You may be asking yourself what role this lesson about how the body uses its food energy will play in your weight loss. It is simple. You need to ensure that you are eating the high quality fuel and only in the correct amounts.

This task becomes very easy with BistroMD. So, if you want to start filling your tank with the right amount of fuel, as well as the right kind, you may want to consider a home food delivery program like BistroMD. Our meals are doctor-designed and chef-prepared.
