Nutrition Webquest Report By Karen Treacy
Introduction w I have been asked to give Tom advice on nutrition & activity. Food types & quantities planning & recording food intake. w Based on information CV & resistance facilities he is 29 years has body fat % in the healthy range. wI will achieve this by using the information already available researching through the webquest using my own nutrition knowledge Learning through PBL answering tasks and reflections.
Carbohydrates w Basic fuel for the body w 2 types simple- little digestion,gives burst of energy complex- needs to be broken down, releases energy as required. w Found in foods like wheat, oats, rice, potatoes
Protein w Protein provide cells with materials to grow and maintain structure. w There are essential proteins (amino acids) that cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained from a food source Animal Vegetable w Combining foods will ensure you get full complements. Meat milk & eggs are a good source.
Fats/Lipids w Try to reduce fat from your diet. w Eat unsaturated rather than saturated fat. w Fat is a very good source of energy so do not remove it from your diet. It aids the body t o function.
Vitamins w Vitamins are an essential part of nutrition. w If deficient they can hinder the bodys normal function vitamin k is used for blood clotting, without it internal bleeding would be uncontrollable.
Minerals & Fibre w Minerals can help with the absorption of vitamins w Calcium which ensures bone density Vitamin D absorption w Iron which transports oxygen w Fibres should be included in the diet. w They cannot be digested but can aid the process of digestion. w They add bulk to the diet and eliminate waste.
Water w Your body is made up of 60% water. w Water intake must be increased during activity periods. w Water leaves the body when you exhale evaporation through the skin perspiration in activities
Training Diet w It may be a personal preference when you eat before an activity session if it is a vigorous session time available w But you should maintain dietary variety w Active people need additional fluid to cover sweat loss fuel physical activity w You should be well hydrated before, during and after a training session.
Servings w Obtaining all the nutrients is not enough, you must also get them in the correct proportion. w For loosing weight you should reduce the amount of fat in your diet.
Dehydration w Drink regularly! DO NOT wait until you are thirsty to drink as this is an early sign of dehydration. w By not replacing fluid loss you will be putting a strain on the heart to fulfill oxygen demands.
Conclusion w I think if Tom listens to my advice he will be able to participate in activity without putting his health at risk. w By drawing up a food chart Tom will be able to identify areas in need of change. w Tom can use the information given to make adjustments to his own lifestyle where necessary. w Eating the right foods in the correct proportion and staying hydrated will enable Tom to successfully participate in activity sessions.
THANK YOU! w My guidelines will lead to a healthy happy heart.
