Prehistoric men, if you get fat, could not but be happy! Grease was the only way to protect yourself from starvation in the event of famine.

If our ancestors ate more than necessary, excess foods turned into fat deposited in their bodies,

If they were eating less than you need, their organism converts stored fat into energy.

Nowadays our refrigerators and supermarket shelves are filled with food, so we need to use our bodies as a pantry! Many people want to lose weight just for aesthetics, but motivation should be the achievement of a better health. Overweight or obesity are associated with an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and some cancers.

The foods we eat are a source of energy, exactly like gasoline for the cars. Our body uses energy to keep body temperature constant, to move and to maintain its various functions, such as heartbeat.

The unit of energy is the calorie.

1 gram of carbohydrates or sugars equals 4 calories,

1 gram of protein equals 4 calories,

1 gram of fat equals 9 calories.

The calorie depends on several factors, such as

by sex,

by age,

the Constitution,

the level of activity

and metabolism.

Children need more energy per unit of body weight than adults, because they have to grow. A man of 90 kg needs more energy than another who only weighs 70 kg. A Mason needs more energy than an employee of the same age, same sex and with the same build.

Even for people of the same age, the same size and with the same level of activity, you may need different amounts of calories per day, due to differences in metabolism; those who have a faster metabolism needs more calories a day.

Carbohydrates are contained in foods that contain sugars or starches. Among them we recall







Proteins are essential for the organism and are contained in:




Dried pulses,



Fats are the most caloric and nutritional ingredient are contained mainly in:

To find out if you are overweight

• To find out if you are overweight, you can calculate the body mass index (BMI) by taking your weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared (kg/m2). For example, an adult weighing 70 kg and is 1.75 m tall has a BMI of 22.9.

• If the number that you get from this calculation is less than 25 mean that it is okay. However, if your waist circumference is greater than 94-102 cm for men and 80-88 cm for women, means that individuals have an excess of abdominal fat and are therefore at greater risk of health problems, even if their BMI is more or less normal.
