Nutritional Adequacy- eating well-balanced meals emphasizing fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and low-fat milk products. Small Portions & Meal Spacing- eating the nutritional amount that is required in a day. Not following societies take on consuming all they give you, like in restaurants.

Calculating your BMI (body mass index): You need your age, weight, and height. healthy range- 18.5- 24.9 Example: Me- 19, 120, 5'4 = 20.6 Are you above? below? in range? Picking a starting point. in range, so maintaining weight is the goal Calculate your BMR (basal metabolic rate): Lets you know the amount of calories your body needs and uses in YOUR normal day. This is an average it differs each day. Mine was 2152 calories per day (with moderate exercise 3-5 a week) Now What? Key concepts about maintaining weight: Best method- balancing the amount of calories that are being consumed with the amount of calories you are using. (However if you want to loose weight, you will need to increase the amount of calories being used and decrease the amount of calories being consumed. You would not want to balance your calories) Example: + 100 calories (a cookie) - 100 calories (1 minute wall sits) = 0 calories Eating several smaller well balanced meals a day. Example: Having support and a positive attitude in the process. Example: Having a running partner and believing in yourself (affirming yourself, remind yourself of the benefits) Healthy Eating: First review and understand DRI's (dietary reference intakes)- this was developed by the Institution of Medicine's Food and Nutrition Board. It is used for a source of nutrient allowance for healthy people. Food Group Recommended Servings: Grains: 6 oz Vegetables: 2 cups Fruits: 2 cups Milk: 3 cups Meat & Beans: 5 oz Oils: 6 tsp (2000 calorie diet) To prevent weight gain, you should be engaged in physical activity for a minimum of 60 minutes a day. (again this is individualized) Use your BMI and BMR as a foundation. Exercising should not be optional, it should just be a part of your day. Being familiar with what cardio, lifting weights, and stretching does to your body and what its working. Example: have a running buddy Check weight once a week, not everyday. A healthy rate to lose weight is 1-2 pounds a week. (the weight will more likely stay off) Example: schedule a work-out in your day. Example: Long term goal- set goal weight. Short term goal- run five times this week. Example: Reminding yourself that managing your weight will help your overall health Choosing to be active. Examples: limiting "screen" time and implementing exercises into daily tasks Lastly and most importantly have confidence in yourself because you are a daughter/son of The Ruler of the world!
