    In simple words Cars burn petrol to get the energy they need to move. Your body burns (metabolises) food to produce energy in the form of heat. This heat warms your body and powers every move you make.
    If you take in more calories than you burn up each day, you gain weight. If you take in less than you use up, you lose weight.
    The energy you need when your body is at rest. & The energy you need when you’re physically active.
    Eat right, follow balance diet, choose from every (variety of food) group then to get good calories. Stay away from empty calories – table sugar.
