What are the benefits to your overall health? Negative effects of excessive consumption? All foods made from meat, poultry,
seafood, beans and peas, eggs,
processed soy products, nuts, and seeds
are considered part of the Protein Foods
Group. The amount of food from the Protein Foods
Group you need to eat depends on age, sex, and level of physical activity. The chart below indicates a recommended daily amount of protein, dependent on gender and age. There are many health benefits of protein. Eating
enough protein is essential to maintain a healthy
body. If the body sustains an injury, such as a cut, protein helps with tissue repair. Along with carbohydrates, protein provides energy for the body which helps keep us from becoming fatigued.
Another one of the benefits of protein is helping the body fight off illness and disease and keeping the immune system functioning properly. Excessive protein in your diet can increase the risk of Osteoporosis and put strain on your kidneys. Excess protein in diets has been linked to the development of some cancers.
An excessive consumption of protein can cause failure of internal organs within the body.
The most concerning is the risk of nutritional deficiency. Protein makes up about half of the human
body's dry weight. Many of the foods we eat
contain protein, particularly flesh foods
(chicken, beef, lamb and fish) and legumes.
Proteins are digested to release amino acids.
In the body, amino acids are used to make
new proteins, converted into hormones such
as adrenalin or may be used as an energy
source. Protein Food pyramids are commonly used to teach individuals how to eat a healthy, balanced diet. There are no mandatory foods required for food pyramids, rather, a variety of choices are highlighted by food groups. Individuals should eat different foods from each food group to ensure they obtain all the nutrients their body needs in ensuring bodies receive the appropriate amount and benefits of each food groups. The information stated in the negative effects of 'excessive consumption' highlights the importance of a varied food diet, full of many foods groups, colours and varieties. Super Foods
http://www.life123.com/health/weight-loss/super-foods-weight-loss/when-super-foods-arent-super.shtml What are fats? In what foods is fat found? What is the recommended daily intake? What are the overall benefits to your health? What are the negative effects of excessive consumption? Fats Fat is a nutrient that supplies the body with much needed energy and it supports other nutrients to help our bodies function properly. There are many different types of fats that can be catagorised as 'good' or 'bad' fats, but as long as they are taken in moderation, they can be beneficial for your body. The three more common fats are saturated, unsaturated and trans fats. Saturated and trans fats taken excessively are the 'bad' fats and unsaturated fats are the 'good' fats for your body. Fats can be found in almost every food. Saturated fats are found in meat and dairy products and processed foods such as pastries and cakes. Polyunsaturated fats on the other hand are very good for your body if taken in moderation and is found in oily fish such as salmon and is also found in grape seed oil. Depending on your age will determine how much fat your body can generate in order for it to function properly and keep you healthy.
Children aged 2 to 3 - total fat limited to 30%-35% of total calorie intake.
Children aged 4 to 18 - total fat limited to 25%-35% of total calorie intake.
Adults aged 19 and older - total fat limited to 20%-35% of total calorie intake. Because fat takes longer to digest, it can make you feel fuller for a longer period of time and reduce the amount of food you eat. Omega -3 fats (found in polyunsaturated fats) help to give you energy and maintain a healthy mental state. Excessive eating of foods containing saturated and trans fats can lead to heart disease and high cholesterol levels. Consuming high levels of polyunsaturated fats can increase the risk of cancer. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/141442.php
