Food is our main source of energy. The energy we need to live our lives every day comes from the food we eat. Our body weight increases when our energy (food) intake is not equal to the amount of energy we use. This is referred to as our "energy balance", and is influenced by factors or how they interact both the inside and outside of the body.
