Energy

Energy

Your body needs energy, protein, minerals, vitamins, and fiber. In order to get all of these, it is important to have a varied and balanced diet. And to eat the right amount of food. Your body “burns” food to energy : the amount of energy provided by food is measured in units called calories.

How many calories do you need? This depends on your weight and on what you do. When you are sleep, your body uses nearly one calorie an hour for every kilogram of weight. So a person who weight seventy kilos uses about 560 calories while sleeping for eight hours. More calories are needed for different activities from 100 calories an hour for reading or watching TV, to 350 calories an hour for playing football.

To calculate the number of calories needed per day for an average person, first find out the person’s ideal weight. Then multiply the weight by 40 for a woman or 46 for a man. A 60-kilo woman may need about 2400 categories a day-more if she does heavy physical work and less if she is very inactive.
