For this group of researchers meet the energy input by foods it is a very simple position, since it is necessary to know how to interact with the different macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) to provide energy and regulate appetite.
For certain researchers at the University of Sydney, foods are composed of a mixture of nutrients that interact with each other, regulating the system of satiety – appetite.
