The functions and familiar sources of the energy-yielding macronutrients
Function of carbohydrate
Carbohydrate's principal role is to give energy. When practicing at
a high intensity, carbohydrate becomes particularly necessary.
High-intensity exercise raises energy (calorie) needs, and
carbohydrate is a quick energy source that the body can access. In contrast, fat, an
alternative energy source, takes a long time to meet the body's energy demands
during high-intensity activity (Mwanga et al., 2020).
Carbohydrates can be stored as an energy reserve in the human body
in the liver and muscle to some extent. For males and girls aged 19 and up, the
AMDR for starch is 45 to 65 percent of kilocalories.
Sources of carbohydrates
Rice, pasta, refined carbohydrates, and grains like corn, beans,
peanuts, fruits, greens, and milk are all excellent sources of carbohydrates. Some
carbohydrates are nutrient-dense because carbohydrates contain nutrients such as
vitamins, nutrients, and dietary fiber essential for optimum health.
Functions of lipids
Lipids are fats and oils found in the diet. Dietary fats and oils give
you energy and help you absorb fat-soluble vitamins and other nutrients.
Fat can be stored indefinitely in the body and serves as an energy
source (Oliphant et al., 2019). Fat can be a good source of energy for long-distance
