Eating healthy at college
Lacking and excelling
Institute Of Medicine suggest eating a healthy diet and drinking in response to thirst (5)
A crucial nutrient
80% of intake comes from drinking water and other beverages (caffeinated drinks included), 20% comes from food (1)
11 cups for women, 16 cups for men (5)
What Are Nutrients?
Substances that provide a source of nourishment essential for life
Essential nutrients we obtain from food: water, carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals
Macronutrients: water, carbohydrates, proteins, and fats
Micronutrients: vitamins and minerals
Calorie (kilocalorie): a unit of measure that indicates the amount of energy obtained from a particular food
We derive energy from the energy-containing nutrients in the foods we eat
Energy-containing nutrients:carbohydrates, proteins, and fats
Proteins develop and repair bone, muscle, skin, and blood cells
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins (nonessential and essential)
Complete proteins (animal products) have all the essential amino acids while incomplete proteins (plants) lack one or more
IOM suggest 10%-35% calorie intake per day come from protein (2)
Recommended Daily Allowance in U.S. is 46 grams for women and 56 grams for men (2)
Americans consume more than 78 grams of protein per day (5)
Important for a healthy diet
Carbohydrates are converted into glucose (blood sugar), your body's main source of energy
Good carbohydrates: whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes
Bad carbohydrates: white bread, pastries, soda, and highly processed and refined food
IOM recommends carbohydrates make up to %45-%65 of daily calorie intake, and at least 130 grams per day
Vitamins and Minerals
Needed for energy, cell function, insulation of body organs, maintenance of body temperature, and healthy skin and hair
Good fats: Unsaturated fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated) include vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, and fish
Bad fats: Saturated and trans fat include animal products and processed food
We do not have to consume cholesterol through our diet
Diets high in saturated and trans fat produces cholesterol (heart disease)
No more than %7-%10 total calories from saturated fats, and no more than %35 of all fats
Vitamins-organic substances (made by plants and animals
Minerals-inorganic substances made by earth (absorbed by plants and eaten by animals)
Vitamins and minerals boost the immune system, support normal growth, and carry out bodily functions
