along with carbohydrates and proteins. The energy
produced by fat is 9 calories per gram. While proteins
and carbohydrates only have 4 calories per gram. Fat is needed in the body to function,
but too much fat can cause weight gain
and serious problems in the body. When the body uses fat, it breaks
down the contents and releases
glycerol and fatty acids into the blood
stream. When a muscle needs fat it extracts
the energy and converts it to ATP, which is
a form of usable energy for the body. Proteins
