Health and Human Development - High fat intake

High fat intake

Physical activity uses up extra energy which would otherwise be
converted to fat and stored in the body

Excess saturated fats, carbohydrates, alcohol and proteins, are all
converted to fat. Energy produced from the food consumed is used by the
body for basal metabolism [1], physical activity and a small amount for the
specific dynamic action of food. When too much food is consumed, the
individual can increase their physical activity to use up this extra
energy, or it will be converted to fat and stored in the body. A small
excess every day will add up over a year, unless the extra energy is used
up. To maintain good health, adults should balance energy intake with
energy output.
