The organelles have very specific functions just like our organs do. The organelle that supplies all the energy demands for the body is called the Mitochondria, or as I like to call it, the MIGHTYchondria! This little tiny structure inside all our cells takes the food we eat and the air we breathe and converts it into energy (in the form of a molecule called ATP). This molecule is then dispersed throughout the body to provide all the energy we need to keep us alive and functioning. 

Obviously this happens without our having to think or do anything. But thankfully someone did think about it and research has shown us that the way our MightyChondria breakdown food is not equal. Specifically when we are talking about fats vs. carbs.
