You Are What You Eat Presented by: Sara Campbell Lauren Ireland Karen Turgeon Critical Health Issues with Will Stern Spring 2001 PE313
M&M Analogy For every M&M that you eat, you would have to walk the bases on a baseball field one time to burn off the calories. That means, if you eat a small bag of M&Ms, then you would have to walk the bases 54 times!
So What About this M&M Stuff? Are you what you eat? The food you eat gives you energy, if you dont use the food you eat…it is stored…too much storage is bad You should pay attention to the food you put in your body.
Making Sure You Dont Eat One Too Many M&Ms Definition of Calories: a unit that expresses the energy-producing value of food If you eat more calories than you burn, you will gain weight!

You Will be Able to Count Your Calories!
You should know how many calories your body needs dailyYou should know how many calories your body needs daily From this you can also figure out how much you should intake to lose weightFrom this you can also figure out how much you should intake to lose weight In counting your calories, you should know how to split up calories at each mealIn counting your calories, you should know how to split up calories at each meal
An average amount of calories needed per day:An average amount of calories needed per day: Nonactive girls need 2200 or lessNonactive girls need 2200 or less Active girls need about 2800Active girls need about 2800 Nonactive guys need about 2600Nonactive guys need about 2600 Active guys need 3800 or moreActive guys need 3800 or more
Want to Know What You Need? Get out a piece of paper and a pencil…and calculator Were gonna tally up your daily caloric intake Do you know how much carbohydrates, protein, and fat you need? You can figure that out too, follow along!
First Calculate Your Daily Activity Level Your Daily Life Apart From Exercise 0 = very little daily activity (couch potato) 1 = light activity (office work) 2 = active, but not strenuous (teacher) 3 = moderate manual labor (construction) 4 = strenuous labor (digging ditches) REMEMBER THIS NUMBER...
Next, Your Exercise Life Activity Level You will add this number to the number you were to remember: 0 = no regular exercise 1 = irregular to light exercise 2 = occasional moderate exercise 3 = regular moderate to vigorous exercise 4 = participation in serious athletic training AND YOUR GRAND TOTAL IS...
Calories Your Body Burns Per Pound Find Your Total Activity Level Number and find the calories per pound your body burns
How Many Calories Should You Intake to Maintain? Multiply the number of calories per pound your body burns by your weight: Example: A male with an activity level of 4 burns 17 calories per pound. If he weighs 170 pounds. Then: 17 x 170 = 2890 calories to maintain current weight
How Many Calories Should You Eat to Loose Weight? A weekly deficit of 3,500 calories can result in the loss of 1 lb.. That means cutting back 500 calories a day burns off a pound a week Pretty, tough, huh? Try exercising…that will increase the amount of calories you burn!
Counting Carbs High protein diets, say carbs are bad…theyre NOT You should eat 23 grams of carbs for every 10 pounds of body weight The 170 pound guy should eat 390 carbs daily For those losing weight, dont eat below 18 grams of carbs for every 10 pounds
Stack up on Protein Exercising? Protein is used up more quickly in active bodies One should average between 4.5 and 9 grams of protein for every 10 pounds of weight The 170 pound guy should intake around 102 grams of protein
Pile on the Fat Okay, so dont really pile it on, but here is what you need… Add the number of carbs and protein grams already calculated Multiply this by 4 and Subtract from your total amount of calories Divide by 9. This is your total fat grams!
So I Need that Much FAT? The fat grams calculated is the upper end of your daily allowance One shouldnt eat less than half the total amount Beware, if you are consuming not enough fat, your body will learn to store fat, which isnt good!
Split up Calories at Meals 35% of Daily Calories before 10 a.m. Eat another 35% between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Eat the remaining 30% before 8 p.m. Stay away from late-night snacking
