The diet is scheduled to avoid any risk that can harm the body and keep the medical setting normal.
The diet discipline is to incorporate healthier foods that can be brought with the help of dieticians only.
With the help of diet program patients with any medical history like diabetes or blood pressure can shred some extra weight to live a healthier life.
All foods are composed of a combination of three major components, called macronutrients:
1. Carbohydrates
2. Protein
3. Fat

Each of these macronutrients are composed of smaller functional units. Carbohydrates are chains of glucose and other sugars. Proteins are chains of amino acids. Fats are chains of fatty acids. There are also smaller, microscopic amounts of vitamins (A, B, C, D, E, K etc.) and minerals (iron, copper, selenium etc.), known as micronutrients.
Digestion breaks down macronutrients for absorption into the bloodstream. This provides both energy (calories) and the raw materials needed (proteins, fats) to build cells. Certain macronutrients must be obtained from our diet because we cannot make them ourselves. These are called essential amino acids (such as arginine and leucine) and essential fatty acids (such as omega 3 and omega 6 fats), but there are no essential carbohydrates. Without these essential nutrients, we would get sick.
Dietary proteins are made up of components called amino acids and during digestion is broken down into its individual amino acids. These are circulated to the liver, where they are used to repairing and rebuilding cellular proteins. The first job of these amino acids is NOT for use as energy. These are used to build proteins like blood cells, bone, muscle, connective tissue, skin etc. However, if you eat excessive protein, the body has no way to store these extra amino acids. Instead, these are changed into glucose by the liver. An estimated 50-70% of the protein ingested is turned into glucose. Fat is composed of molecules called triglycerides. Digestion of fat requires bile which mixes and emulsifies the dietary fat so that it is more easily absorbed into the body. The fat is absorbed directly into the lymphatic system which then empties into the bloodstream. The triglycerides are taken up by the fat cells (adipocytes). Since dietary fat does not require the liver for initial processing, it does not require insulin as a signaling hormone. Thus, dietary fat has almost no effect on insulin levels. Dietary fat is absorbed more or less directly into our body fat directly.
