Nutrition and Physical Fitness Chapter 5 Notes: Usefulness of fats  Fat is not a bad thing  Bad thing? – Excess fat  Lipids – triglycerides, phospholipids, and sterols  Fat is the body’s chief storage form for the calories from food consumed in excess in need. How much fat can fat cells store?  An almost unlimited amount How much larger are an obese person’s fat cells compared to a thin person’s fat  cells?  5 times larger Fats pack together tightly as compared to glycogen. What is a fat tooth, and why do we have it?  Due to the aroma and flavor provided by fat. Fat adds tenderness to foods and has enticing aroma and flavor. Satiety – the feeling of fullness after a meal. Triglyceride – how we store most of the fat in our body. Roles of Protein  Support growth and maintenance (replace old cells and build new ones)  Build enzymes and hormones (the hormone “thyroxine” regulates metabolism)  Builds antibodies for the immune system  Maintain fluid and electrolyte balance  Maintain acid­base balance by buffering the two to maintain normal pH.  Provides energy. The body does not store protein. Extra protein is converted to glucose or fat. Cooking with moist heat improves protein digestibility; dry heat methods improve it. Complete verse incomplete: C – contain all essential amino acids for human needs I – lack one or more essential amino acids PER (protein efficient ratio)­ used to measure the quality of infant formulas and baby  foods.
