Answer . It depends on how much energy the human body expends on a daily base and on a few factors such as age, gender, weight, muscle/fat composition, activities etc. To calculate your daily energy requirements: The Harris Benedict formula.. Key: M= weight in kilograms. H= height in centimetre…s. A= age. AF= activity factor.. how do I know what activity factor im at?? Very light AF (sit and stand still most of the day) is 1.3 for men and women. Light active (house cleaning ,slowly walking ,playing golf most of the day) is 1.6 for men and 11.5 for women. Mild active (walking at faster pase, riding bike, dancing, gym, playing sport such as tennis, riding bike...) is a AF of 1.7 for men and 1.6 for women. Very active (playing tough sports such as rugby, soccer, long duration aerobic excersize daily, working in a mine...) is a AF of 2.1 for men and 1.9 for women. Now take your details and substitute it in the following equasions:. Men: 66.5 + 13.8 (M) + 5 (H) - 6.8(A). Women: 655 + 9.6 (M) + 1.8 (H) - 4.7 (A). Now you get an answer from the equasion. Take this answer, multiply it by 4.2 Then multiply this by your AF. This is the amount of kilojoules you can comsume daily. To know how many calories this is ,divide your final answer by 4.2. The amount of food your body needs daily ,is the amount of food it takes to sustain this energy requirement of your body.. Check labels of products for kilojoule content or get yourself a kilojoule/calorie counter booklet. (If you really want to).. If you want to lose wight, subtract 3000 kJ (KJ, NOT CALORIES) from your energy requirement. If you want to pick up weight, add 3000 kJ to your energy requirement and focus on lean meats and complex carbohydrates. ( Full Answer )

Oxygen (61% or 43kg), carbon (23% or 16kg), and hydrogen (10% or 7kg). The human body contains 8 pints of blood. If you were to somehow remove all of the DNA from a single sell and lay it all down by the ends, it would be 6 feet in length. To be as close as science will let us and in an elemental sense, the average adult male, 5'11", 167lbs, is composed of: water 35 liters, carbon 20kg, amonia 4 liters, lime 1.5kg phosphorus 800g, salt 250g, saltpeter 100g sulfur 80g, fluorine 7.5g, iron 5g, silicon 3g, and 15 other trace amounts of other elements.

our body needs food to survive a healthy happy balanced diet body hope i helped:) x ~~~Also it helps with our mood, if we have a headache, or for for some simple things, plus believe it or not; eating actually helps you stay skinny or average, or else your belly gets full with air and that ca…use bloating, which makes your tummy stick out, even if you haven't eaten. weird isn't it? but it's true, you need food to survive, it's not always "happy", sometimes we might eat when were watching TV, even if we don't need too, or some might eat when they're sad, like comfort food . so saying eating is "happy", isn't the best word, unless you talking about chocolate, try this; don't eat candy or chocolate for a whole month, nothing sweet (unless its tea or sugar in your coffee), then on the last day, take a nice relaxing bath, with no lights, just candles, and eat a 5 pieces of the big chocolate bar, believe me, it's a nice feeling of accomplishment.

Depends on what you are drying. When I dry onion tops, celery, bell peppers, etc, I just spread the chopped item on my racks and dry them. ( I use a great home made dehydrator ) If you want to dry things like strawberries, banana's, apricots, etc., you can rinse the fruit in lemon juice to prese…rve their color. I could care less if my apricots turn a little brown, so I do not bother. How you store it after drying, is also a factor. Herbs I keep in jars in the pantry. Fruits I put in zip-locs in the freezer. You have to consider how long you plan on keeping the dried food. If you are going to store it for a long time, use the lemon. Drying is easy . . . Good Luck ! ( Full Answer )

According to a scientific article about iodine declaration the recommended daily intake of iodine in the US is 150 micrograms per day as determined by the US Food and Nutrition Board. According to the FDA, you only need to declare minerals like iodine if you add them as a supplement or if you make …a claim about them. Since it's unlikely that you add it if you don't make a claim about it or if it doesn't serve as a supplement, you are supposed to declare it and the FDA also lists specific rules on how to do it. In short, yes. Added iodine would need to be declared in most if not all cases. ( Full Answer )

You need proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Without balanced diet you may get many diseases.
Different cells need different substances to function. One vegetable will contain a specific mineral while another will have none. The best way to ensure you are getting a full range of nutrients is to eat a little bit of a wide range of foods.
Yes, you do. The human body requires a wide variety of nutrients including protein, carbohydrates, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, and fiber, and any kind of food (except for artificially formulated dietary replacement products) is only going to have some of those nutrients. Variety in a diet is… very beneficial. The lack of any one essential nutrient, such as a single vitamin, can result in serious illness or death. ( Full Answer )
