  Food and Energy
Energy exists on a continuum, from yin, among whose attributes are cold, darkness, and contraction, to yang, characterized by heat, light, and expansion.
Foods exist on this continuum and can be characterized as predominantly yin or yang, according to the effect they have on the body.
Methods of preparation affect the energy in foods and are also important—ingredients and preparation are suited to the season and locale, with an emphasis on variety.

 Food Energy
As energy passes to a higher tropic level, approximately 90% of the useful energy is lost.
At each tropic level in a food chain, energy is used by the organisms at that level to maintain their own life process.
Because of the 2nd law of energy, some energy is lost to the surroundings as heat.

 Food Chains and Webs
When a herbivore eats, only a fraction of the energy (that it gets from the plant food) becomes new body mass; the rest of the energy is lost as waste or used up by the herbivore to carry out its life processes (e.g., movement, digestion, reproduction).
Of the energy transferred from the herbivore to the carnivore, some energy will be "wasted" or "used up" by the carnivore.
Most animals are part of more than one food chain and eat more than one kind of food in order to meet their food and energy requirements.

 Food energy calorific value of fats and carbohydrates   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Food energy is the amount of energy in food that is available through digestion.Food energy is typically measured in units of calories, although the International System of Units unit kilojoules (1000 joules) are becoming more common.
Some types of food hold more food energy than others: fats and sugars have particularly high food energy levels.Note that the "calorie" used by dieticians for food is sometimes called a kilocalorie; it is equal to 4.1868 kilojoules.
For example, clean sugar releases about 3.95 Calories per gram of gross energy but the digestibility coefficient of sugar is about 98% in humans, so the food energy of sugar is 3.87 Calories per gram of sugar.

 IFPRI Publications Review Seminar: Food Insecurity in Sub-Saharan Africa: New Estimates from Household Expenditure ...
The goals of the report are to (1) explore the extent of food insecurity across and within the countries; (2) investigate the scientific merit of using HES food data for measuring it; and (3) compare the estimates generated with FAO’s estimates of undernourishment and begin to explore the reasons for differences.
The report confirms that food insecurity is a major problem in Sub-Saharan Africa, with prevalences of food energy deficiency in the twelve countries ranging from 37% for Uganda to 76% for Ethiopia.
HES estimates of food energy deficiency are more strongly associated with other MDG indicators of poverty and hunger; they are more consistent with country rankings based on a survey of expert opinion.

Superfood describes a food that is naturally concentrated to provide all the nutritional elements necessary for optimal health.
Many of these super foods are found in the first link of the food chain, i.e., the plankton which is made purely from sunlight and water, and green food grasses which are made from soil and sunlight.

 Physical Effort and Food Energy
In terms of nutrition, energy is measured in calories.
Regardless of the calorie content, a food product is measured in terms of its nutritional value, in other words, according to what it contributes to the organism.
Some nutriments, the content of which in food is expressed in calories, are primarily used for construction; and others exclusively for energy production.

 Nutritional Glossary Index: Carbohydrate thru Trans Fatty Acids
A kilocalorie represents the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of a liter of water one degree centigrade at sea level.
Technically, however, this common usage of the word calorie of food energy is understood to refer to a kilocalorie (and actually represents, therefore, 1000 true calories of energy).
