Balanced Diet

1.How Do We Get Energy From Food We Eat?

The food is processed by the following steps inside our body for the production of energy—

  • The food is converted into simple nutrients with the help of the digestive system.
  • These simple nutrients reach the cells of our body along with the blood.
  • In the cells, these nutrients are oxidised in the presence of oxygen to produce energy.


2.Can We Obtain Energy Directly From the Food We Eat?

No, it is impossible to obtain energy directly from our food. Food is complex and cannot be absorbed by our blood; hence it cannot be utilised by the cells in the body.

Therefore, food is digested, i.e., converted into simple nutrients, after which the bloodstream absorbs it.
