Food Utilization Explained


Protein can’t be stored as fat and virtually none of the dietary fat like cheese gets stored as fat, fat is primarily burned for energy. Carbohydrates at best should be eaten cautiously, because if not burned could be stored as fat can cause weight gain.

There has been research conducted by experts to produce a food utilization food chart. They have searched science and nutrition websites and some diet books, but they could not find absolutely no calculation of the amount of fat stored by the body when carbohydrates are eaten. There were no information found and they consistently found wrong information on how the body utilizes the foods. They didn’t found any information, yet they were able to provide the correct numbers that explain what your body really needs to be healthy.

From the fields of physiology and biochemistry, carbohydrates can’t be used for much else but body fat, unless you are engaged in strenuous exercise, which is infrequent at best. At most just 3 pounds which is about 1300 grams of carbohydrates need to be eaten to gain a full 1 pound of body fat which is about 450 grams. This number includes any carbohydrates used throughout the body for any biochemical process or structure.

You have to remember that carbohydrates can immediately convert to body fat. A slice of bread contains approximately 10 grams of carbohydrates so 1 loaf is about 240 grams (even a whole wheat bread)you will gain 10 pounds a year if you consume a whole loaf of bread a week. So if you are not doing exercise frequently, you have to avoid eating carbs. You need to consume much of PEOs-based foods. PEOs are from foods that are still in their “parent” forms like fruits and vegetables. They should be eaten fresh and raw. There are also plant-based sources of proteins like nuts that are rich in PEOs. Meat also is a great source of PEOs as long as it is natural and organic. It means that you eat meat from animals that only eat grass.
