...Leandra Steele, Thomas Van Horn   SCI 220 / Human Nutrition   University of Phoenix   Weight Watchers Weight Watchers is one of the oldest diet programs in America. In the early 1960’s, their founder Jean Nidetch began inviting friends into her Queens home once a week to discuss how best to lose weight. Today, that group of friends has grown to millions of men and women around the world who use the services and products offered by Weight Watchers to lose their unwanted pounds. The program helps inform people about how to live a healthy and prosperous life by teaching them not only about physical fitness, but about mental and emotional fitness as well. Weight Watchers Philosophy According to Weight Watchers, their philosophy has always been that dieting is just one part of long term weight management. A healthy body results from a healthy lifestyle. This means being not only physically fit, but also mentally and emotionally fit as well. Weight Watchers provides information, tools and knowledge to help you make healthy decisions about eating. This program works by the philosophy that the person who wants to lose weight should eat whatever he/she likes without sacrificing any of their favorite foods, or missing any of their meals. According to Weight Watchers, if we do not eat for a long period of time, any of the unused food is stored for “emergency” use, where the body stores all of its fats. They encourage proper nutrition, and also for you to have fun by becoming......

My daily intake was compared against the recommended intake for someone of my height, weight, and age. The list of foods that I ate daily was saved into my iProfile and then compiled to reflect my intake for a 72 hour period. The amount of macronutrients I intake daily was analyze and then each single nutrient was analyze and compared to the recommended daily intake. My diet was high in proteins but low in carbs which resulted in a low fiber intake. The findings in this study showed me that what I thought was a healthy meal plan, was actually missing essential macronutrients critical for body function. Nutrition Intake – 3 Days During the past 72 hours, I recorded everything I ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. After recording my intake in the Wiley iProfile and reviewing the reports, I gained a better understanding of my diet by comparing my daily nutrition intake to what is recommended by the Dietary Reference Intake. The foods in my daily intake that provided protein were the eggs, yogurt, turkey sandwiches, chicken breasts, lima beans, protein shakes, turnip greens, broccoli, and the subway salad.

...PART 1 NUTRITION AND ATHLETE HEALTH The sport of athletics includes a wide range of events whose requirements range from speed to endurance, from a light physique to explosive power, and from multiple events lasting less than a minute to a single race lasting more than 2–3 hours. Despite the extreme contrast in these characteristics, all athletes share some common nutrition goals (see Table 6-1). This chapter will briefly explore these goals. Table 6-1. The athlete’s nutrition goals. Characteristic Everyday eating or training diet The athlete’s nutrition-related goals • Achieve and maintain a physique that is suited to the event • Eat to stay healthy and injury-free • Train hard and promote optimal adaptations and recovery from the training programme • Practice competition eating in training to fine tune strategies • Prepare adequate fuel stores for the event • Eat and drink well on competition day to prepare for an event and to recover between multiple events • During prolonged events (> 1 hour), replace fluid and carbohydrate to enhance performance • Achieve competition strategies when traveling • Make use of specialised sports foods to meet nutritional goals when it is impractical to eat everyday foods • Make wise decisions about the use of nutritional ergogenic aids based on cost: benefit analysis Competition eating Sports foods and dietary supplements A.

...NUTRITION PROJECT I think my diet is very interesting and shows both sides of how I can eat. As you can see, three of my entries show how much salt, fat and calories I can consume along with not drinking enough water. There is also an entry I added to show my current eating habit which is optimal. I just purchased an elliptical/treadmill and started working out for at least an hour a day with my heart rate up and sweating. When I start working out, I am conscious of what I eat. I drink more water, lay off processed and refined foods and honestly I feel better mentally and physically. I will begin with the first three entries logged on my fitness pal. My diet is defiantly high in sodium. I should know better because at the age of 25 (and in a high stress/competitive nursing school) I was hypertensive and taking 10 mg of lisinopril a day. I feel poor diet choices, lack of exercise and low water consumption may have added to this. Luckily now, at the age of 31, I am no longer taking any sort of medication for this. The average recommended dietary intake of sodium for adults is 1,500 mg. The human body actually only needs approximately 180-500 mg/day according to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention. Their website also gives information stating the tolerable level of sodium defined: which is "the highest daily level of sodium that poses no risk of adverse health effects to almost all individuals" is 2,300...

...Phoenix Nutritional Needs Nutrition is the major intrauterine environmental factor that alters expression of the fetal genome and may have lifelong consequences. This phenomenon, termed “fetal programming,” has led to the recent theory of “fetal origins of adult disease.” Namely, alterations in fetal nutrition and endocrine status may result in developmental adaptations that permanently change the structure, physiology, and metabolism of the offspring, thereby predisposing individuals to metabolic, endocrine, and cardiovascular diseases in adult life. Animal studies show that both maternal undernutrition and over nutrition reduce placental-fetal blood flows and stunt fetal growth. Impaired placental syntheses of nitric oxide (a major vasodilator and angiogenesis factor) and polyamines (key regulators of DNA and protein synthesis) may provide a unified explanation for intrauterine growth retardation in response to the 2 extremes of nutritional problems with the same pregnancy outcome. There is growing evidence that maternal nutritional status can alter the epigenetic state (stable alterations of gene expression through DNA methylation and histone modifications) of the fetal genome. This may provide a molecular mechanism for the impact of maternal nutrition on both fetal programming and genomic imprinting. Promoting optimal nutrition will not only ensure optimal fetal development, but will also reduce the risk of chronic diseases in adults. Maternal nutrition plays a......

...as it will enable you to understand and offer suitable foods to ensure your nutritional needs are met. Macronutrients are the nutrients that provide calories and energy in a diet, nutrients are needed for growth, metabolism and for other body functions. As “macro” means large, macronutrients are the nutrients needed in large amounts, There are three different types of macronutrients; carbohydrates which is made up of a large group of organic compounds occurring in foods and living tissues, these are included in starch, sugars and cellulose. Protein is the digestion to amino acids and has relationships with muscle mass; protein also affects the activity and metabolic rates. Lipids are the third main class of macronutrients needed in human nutrition. Lipids are found primarily in meats, and dairy foods. They are a class of organic compounds that are fatty acids. Micronutrients are different from macronutrients (like carbohydrates, proteins and fat) they are only necessary in tiny amounts. Nevertheless micronutrients are essential for good health, if you have a micronutrient deficiencies it can cause serious health problems. Micronutrient includes a lot of dietary minerals such as zinc and iodine these are necessary for the healthy functioning of your body’s system, from bone growth to brain function. Micronutrients are commonly known as “vitamins” the vitamins they hold are vitamin A, C, D, and K. Making sure that you eat these vitamins in a healthy balanced diet is really......
