Food Guide Pyramid
Units of heat that measure the energy used by the body and the energy that foods supply to the body.
Calories are found in the items we consume and provide us with energy. The efficiency of this process will depend on the nutritional source and quantities of the foods that we eat.
The items in food that your body uses to fuel and maintain itself

UNIT 3 - Nutrition
Essential ammino acids are amino acids that the body must get from food because our bodies cannot make them on its own
These include the amino acids
our body can produce on its own
a complete protein is commonly from an animal source, like meat, eggs, and dairy products, and contain all 9 essential ammino acids.
Amino acids are organic compounds that combine to form proteins. Amino acids and proteins are the building blocks of life.
When proteins are digested or broken down, amino acids are left. The human body needs a number of amino acids to:
Break down food
Grow and repair body tissue
Perform many other body functions
before you order up these meal items, stop to consider what you're consuming...
...as much saturated fat
as 68 strips of bacon
...131 total grams of fat
...153 grams of sugar
THE BIG WINNER IS...
Coldstone Peanut butter and chocolate (PB&C) Shake

131 g fat (68 g saturated)
153 g sugars
before you order, think about what you're really putting into your body

Make healthy choices
make smart choices when dining out
you might be eating a nutritional disaster and not know it!
And the big winner
(or loser) is...
One serving =
half a cup!
what about snacks?
High Density Lipoprotein (HDL)
Good cholesterol that picks up excess cholestrol in the blood and takes it back to the liver for removal.
Healthy level is GREATER THAN 40.
Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL)
Carries cholesterol and deposits it on the walls of arteries, and is considered harmful.
Healthy level is LESS THAN 100
Nutritional information is based off of recommended daily allowance (RDA's), which are the nttrients that the body needs to repair damage and regain normal functioning

1 Cup of
Nobody just carries around measuring cups, tablespoons, and all sorts of other gadgets designed to measure food and liquid amounts. (At least I hope not)
Observe the list of food items below. Each of those items constitutes what is commonly advertised as a serving size for those items. With a partner or a small group, think of ways you can use your hands to substitute for the measuring devices and measure out the amounts of food below. Be creative!
1 or 2 ounces of
tiny snack food
(nuts, hard candy)
1 to 2 ounces of
crunchy snack food
(chips, pretzels, popcorn)
1 teaspoon of
(butter, ketchup, mayo)
3 ounces of steak
A FIST = 1 Cup
Your fist is approximately the size of one cup. The USDA counts one half cup of rice, cereal, or pasta as one serving size. So if you compare your fist to a bowl of cereal or spaghetti, you are probably having 2 servings in your dish.
A HANDFUL = 1 or 2 ounces of
tiny snack food
A handful is approximately the same size as one or two ounces of small snack foods like hard candy or nuts
TWO HANDFULS = 1 to 2 ounces
of crunchy snack food
Chips, pretzels, popcorn, and other types of crunchy snack foods are more light and airy than nuts and other dense snack foods. So when trying to determine serving sizes for these types of products, two handfuls is equal to one serving size
A THUMB = one ounce of cheese
Use your thumb to estimate how much cheese you are eating. Hard cheeses, such as cheddar, will weigh more than soft cheeses, such as mozzarella, but in general, one thumb-sized chunk is approximately one ounce. The USDA states that 1.5 to 2 ounces of cheese is one serving
THUMB TIP = One teaspoon
Products such as butter, peanut butter, and mayonnaise are very high in fat. If you smear any of these products onto your food, use the tip of your thumb to estimate the equivalent of a teaspoon
A PALM = 3 ounces of meat
One serving of meat is a lot smaller than you'd expect. The USDA says that 2.5 to 3 ounces constitutes a serving of meat, chicken, or fish. A persons palm, minus the fingers and thumb, is approximately the same size as 3 ounces
Everyone is looking for the next big diet fad. Some people take it to the extremes. Having your weight go up and down is not good for your body.
Actors are famous for having to mold their body to fit a role, whether it means to gain or lose weight or fat in order to portray a character. However, what impact will this have on their short term and long term health if they regularly have to do this?

Types & Symptoms of Eating Disorders
Eating disorders -- such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder – include extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues. Eating disorders are serious emotional and physical problems that can have life-threatening consequences for females and males.
Anorexia Nervosa is a serious, potentially life-threatening eating disorder characterized by self-starvation and excessive weight loss.
Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is a type of eating disorder not otherwise specified and is characterized by recurrent binge eating without the regular use of compensatory measures to counter the binge eating. Learn more.
A person does not have to be diagnosed with Anorexia, Bulimia or BED to have an eating disorder. An eating disorder can include a combination of signs and symptoms but not meet the full criteria.
Binge Eating Disorder (BED)
Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (E.D.N.O.S.)
Approximately 90-95% of anorexia nervosa sufferers are girls and women.
Between 0.5–1% of American women suffer from anorexia nervosa.
Anorexia nervosa is one of the most common psychiatric diagnoses in young women.
Between 5-20% of individuals struggling with anorexia nervosa will die. The probabilities of death increases within that range depending on the length of the condition.
Anorexia nervosa has one of the highest death rates of any mental health condition.
Anorexia nervosa typically appears in early to mid-adolescence.
Bulimia Nervosa is a serious, potentially life-threatening eating disorder characterized by a cycle of bingeing and compensatory behaviors such as self-induced vomiting designed to undo or compensate for the effects of binge eating.
Nightline from ABC News : EDNOS: Most Dangerous, Unheard of Eating Disorder
The following are some common examples of eating disorders not otherwise specified, but your experience may be different. If you are concerned about your eating and exercise habits and your thoughts and emotions concerning food, activity and body image, we urge you to consult an ED expert.
Menstruation is still occurring despite meeting all other criteria for anorexia nervosa.
All conditions are present to qualify for anorexia nervosa except the individual's current weight is in the normal range or above.
Purging or other compensatory behaviors are not occurring at a frequency less than the strict criteria for bulimia nervosa
Purging without Binging—sometimes known as purging disorder
Chewing and spitting out large amounts of food but not swallowing
The commonality in all of these conditions is the serious emotional and psychological suffering and/or serious problems in areas of work, school or relationships. If something does not seem right, but your experience does not fall into a clear category, you still deserve attention.

What's the difference?
Oh how times have changed...
Today it seems like there are a million diets out there, and the pressure to look thin (even if it is being depicted at unhealthy levels) is more prevalent than ever. But is that how it always was? THe diet industry was a bit different a few decades ago, and they definitely weren't advocating for weight reduction...
Can you do it without the word bank?
AS THIS QUARTER COMES TO AN END...
let's take a look back at all we've learned
I learned about the different things that can influence the different areas of health in my life.
I learned how to help myself maintain a healthy stress level, and to help someone (including myself) who is struggling with depression or thoughts of suicide.
I learned about the structure and functions of this magnificent machine they call the human body, and how my behaviors can keep these systems working in peak condition.
I learned about the different ways that diseases can be spread or develop, and I know ways to go about preventing many of these diseases or reducing my risk for developing them
I learned about the different components of my nutrtional intake, assessing where I have strengths and areas for improvement for if I ever want to make changes that benefit my health or performance in daily tasks or sports.
I learned about the different health consequences that can impact me now as well as in the future for many different behaviors related to my exercise and dietary habits.

GOOD JOB SO FAR! ONLY 1 QUARTER LEFT!
"I'm just big boned!"
Eat too many calories? Your body has a way to store them all, believe me. And the excuse that some people are big boned - while it can be true that some people have skeletal frames that are slightly larger and heavier than other people, it will likely only account for a few pounds, NOT the numerous pounds of excess of body fat that is hanging all over someone.
Criticisms of MyPlate
Whole grains - no mention of what kind of grains to eat, or differentiation between complex and simple carbs.
Protein - What constitutes a healthy source of protein? Should hamburgers and hot dogs count, considering they have protein? Why no mention of seafood? What non-meat protein options are there?
vegetables - no distingusihing between potatoes and other vegetables. Do french fries count for this section?
Dairy - MyPlate recommends dairy at every meal, even though there is little if any evidence that a high dairy intake protects against osteoporosis, and a too high of a dairy intake has been linked as being more harm than good.
Misleading Food Labels
For years food companies have gotten away with deceptive, misleading, or flat out false advertising. See how many of the nutritional claims below you've seen before.
A product labeled as “natural” must not contain synthetic or artificial ingredients, according to FDA policy. However, it may still contain pesticides, genetically modified ingredients, high fructose corn syrup and be heavily processed, which negates what many consumers think of as natural.
Both the FDA and USDA have vague rules about this phrase, and have let manufacturers that incorrectly use this claim remain in the marketplace.
Certain "All Natural" deli meats have ingredients that are clearly additives one would not find if they cooked and sliced up their own natural turkey at home. The USDA also lets meat and poultry products claim to be “All Natural” when injected with beef or chicken broth, which not only increases the sodium levels to unnatural and less healthy levels, but the water inflates the weight of the product, increasing the price. "All Natural" is not a label enforced strictly enough at this point to be trusted.
Products like Hunt’s Tomato Sauce and “All Natural” Snapple Tea contain
as an additive.
Hunt’s Tomato Sauce’s claim as being “All Natural” is even more misleading considering the product is made of
reconstituted tomato paste
, and not whole tomatoes crushed soon after being picked, as many would assume.
Some products containing
high-fructose corn syrup
(made through complex chemical industrial processes) are even able to get away with the “All Natural” label.
A “healthy” product must meet certain criteria that limit the amounts of fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, and require specific minimum amounts of vitamins, minerals, or other beneficial nutrients.
However, it may still contain large amounts of sugar, artificial ingredients or preservatives, which may not be healthy at all.
"No Trans Fat"
If a food contains 0.5 grams or less of trans fat per serving, it can claim to be trans-fat “free” or to have “0 grams of trans fats.” However, many people eat double, triple or more of the recommended serving size of foods, which means you may be ingesting 1 gram or more of trans fat per serving, even if it claims to be trans-fat free.
This amount can add up over time, so check the ingredients list for “partially hydrogenated oil” -- if this is listed, the food probably contains a measurable amount of trans fat and is better off avoided -- even if it claims to be “trans-fat free.”
"Made with Whole Grains"
Many products tout they’re a healthy source of whole grains, when in reality refined flour is the first ingredient. The FDA does not define what percentage of grain must be whole in order to use this claim, so be sure “whole grain” or “whole wheat flour” is listed as a primary ingredient.
Typically, you can tell if bread is truly made with whole grains by picking it up; it will be heavier and denser than those with refined grains.
"Made with Real Fruit"
Just because a bottle of juice or box of fruit snacks has pictures of fruit on its label does not mean it contains fruit.
Many products even claim to be “made with real fruit” when they contain only a small portion of fruit concentrate.
"No Added Sugar" or "Low Sugar"
The USDA recommends people limit their added sugar consumption to
10 teaspoons (40g) per day
(based on a 2,000 calorie diet),
about the amount in one 12oz can of Coca-Cola
. Unfortunately, added sugars and their daily value are not disclosed on the Nutrition Facts Panel, making it very difficult for consumers to determine the amount of sugar that has been added to products like yogurt, canned fruit, and juice drinks.
Reduced sugar and sugar-free claims are regulated by the FDA, but the term “lightly sweetened” is not. If a product claims to be “lightly sweetened,” it could technically contain any amount of sugar.

HOW MUCH WATER DO YOU NEED?
Approximately 80% of our water intake comes from drinking water and other beverages, and the other 20% comes from food)
While it is no longer believed that we need 6-8 glasses of water per day, it is still true that each person should be consuming enough fluids to prevent dehydration and allow the body to function properly
FATS - CARBOHYDRATES - PROTEIN
VITAMINS - MINERALS - WATER

diseases, or health conditions/restrictions
could influence this goal as well.

Hormonal levels or imbalances
Endocrine system issues
Do you know what you're putting into your body? Is it safe? Is it FDA approved? Are there reliable scientific clinical trials over their use? Is it Doctor prescribed?
The process uses gamma rays, x-rays, or electon beams to reduce or eliminate microorganisms and/or insects. The FDA has recognized the process of food irradiation as being safe. However, skeptics and critics of the process may opt for organic food that does not utilize the process.
"Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can be defined as organisms (i.e. plants, animals or microorganisms) in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally by mating and/or natural recombination.
GM foods are developed and marketed because there is some perceived advantage either to the producer or consumer of these foods. This is meant to translate into a product with a lower price, greater benefit (in terms of durability or nutritional value) or both. Initially GM seed developers wanted their products to be accepted by producers and have concentrated on innovations that bring direct benefit to farmers (and the food industry generally)."
-Information taken from the World Health Organization (WHO):
Like critics of food irratiation, some are hesitant to consume genetically modified food due to concerns about the safety of consuming the modified food.
