3Carbohydrates Basic fuel for the body 2 types Found in foods like simple- little digestion,gives burst of energycomplex- needs to be broken down, releases energy as required.Found in foods likewheat, oats, rice, potatoes
4ProteinProtein provide cells with materials to grow and maintain structure.There are essential proteins (amino acids) that cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained from a food sourceAnimalVegetableCombining foods will ensure you get full complements. Meat milk & eggs are a good source.
5Fats/Lipids Try to reduce fat from your diet. Eat unsaturated rather than saturated fat.Fat is a very good source of energy so do not remove it from your diet.It aids the body t o function.
6Vitamins Vitamins are an essential part of nutrition. If deficient they can hinder the body’s normal functionvitamin k is used for blood clotting, without it internal bleeding would be uncontrollable.
7Minerals & Fibre Minerals can help with the absorption of vitamins Calcium which ensures bone densityVitamin D absorptionIron which transports oxygenFibres should be included in the diet.They cannot be digested but can aid the process of digestion.They add bulk to the diet and eliminate waste.
8Water Your body is made up of 60% water. Water intake must be increased during activity periods.Water leaves the body whenyou exhaleevaporation through the skinperspiration in activities
9Training DietIt may be a personal preference when you eat before an activity sessionif it is a vigorous sessiontime availableBut you shouldmaintain dietary varietyActive people need additional fluid tocover sweat lossfuel physical activityYou should be well hydrated before, during and after a training session.
10ServingsObtaining all the nutrients is not enough, you must also get them in the correct proportion.For loosing weight you should reduce the amount of fat in your diet.
11DehydrationDrink regularly! DO NOT wait until you are thirsty to drink as this is an early sign of dehydration.By not replacing fluid loss you will beputting a strain on the heart to fulfill oxygen demands.
12ConclusionI think if Tom listens to my advice he will be able to participate in activity without putting his health at risk.By drawing up a food chart Tom will be able to identify areas in need of change.Tom can use the information given to make adjustments to his own lifestyle where necessary.Eating the right foods in the correct proportion and staying hydrated will enable Tom to successfully participate in activity sessions.
