Health Basics - Energy Sources

The human body can use four different types of energy. These are fats, carbohydrates (sugars and starches), protein and alcohol. Learn more about how to balance these energy sources for optimal health

Alcohol and Low Carb star
Im not saying to drink alcohol for energy! Im saying that one of the primary fuel sources your body knows how to burn is alcohol. This is basic biology.

Fats - Good Fats and Bad Fats star
Doctors are learning more about fats every month. Where people used to feel that all fats were bad, we now know the difference between healthy omega oils and very bad trans fatty acids.

Human Body Four Energy Sources star
The human body can only metabolize four types of energy sources. These four categories are carbohydrates (sugars and starches), fats (includes oils), proteins (animal and vegetable), and alcohol. These are the only four categories of substance a body can make energy out of.

Protein Information star
Protein is a critical part of any healthy diet. Your body does not store protein, so it is important that you eat ample protein each and every day.

Sugars and Carbohydrates star
While eating tons of sugar is of course bad for you, there are certain sugars that are important, in small amounts.
