Uses of Food
First, food is used to form the materials of the body and repair its waste; second, to yield energy in the form of :
1. heat to keep the body warm,
2. to provide muscular and other power for the work it has to do.

In forming the tissues and fluids of the body the food serves for building and repair. In yielding energy, it serves as fuel for heat and power. The principal tissue formers are the albuminoids; these form the frame-work of the body. They build and repair the nitrogenous materials, as those of muscle, tendon and bone, and supply the albuminoids of blood, milk and other fluids.
The chief fuel ingredients of food are the carbohydrates and fats. These are either consumed in the body or are stored as fat to be used as occasion demands.
