Special considerations

Carbohydrates Primary source of glucose, provide the body with its most efficient and readily available source of energy. If not used immediatly: Store in liver/muscles as glycogen. If not used then stored as fat. One gram of CHO provides 4 Kcal of energy.
Protiens Least efficient fuel source, providing energy only when CHO fuel is exhausted. One gram provides 4 Kcal of energy but only used in times of starvation or when a calorie deficient diet is consumed.
Fats Major source of potential energy in the cells of the body. One gram has the potential of 9 Kcal of energy.
Medium Chain Triglycerides MCT's contain 12 or fewer carbon atoms. They are absorbed differently by the body and are a more immediate source of energy.
Vitamins & Minerals While not providing energy, they function to release energy and have a structural role in tissue and bone.
