Nutrition is very important in the practice of sport, in which the Organization must express itself at the highest level.
Most of the world's population (60% - 85%), is not physically active enough. The percentage of people engaged in physical activity decreases significantly with age during adolescence.
Food and nutrition have a great significance in disease prevention and health promotion, and a poorly balanced diet can have serious health effects.
At school we did a survey on eating habits, weight and height of the pupils of the classes first, second and third. From this data we can obtain information regarding the correctness or otherwise of the eating habits and put them in relations with the IMC of different pupils.

The food pyramid is a graph designed to invite the population to follow dietary advice useful for health. Less frequent Small amount More frequent More amount
Italian diet The Italian diet is mainly based on assuming pasta,rice and bread on a daily rate.
Children and old people are the biggest consumers of milk, while the daily intake of cheese is reduced.
Women eat more fruit and vegetable than men on average, who eat more bread, pasta, rice, beef, pork, sausages and snacks.
Lunch is the main meal of 70% of Italian people.
78.5% of population have a balanced breakfast (tea, coffee, milk and solid food)
79.8% Italians eat white meat at least twice a week. 72.7% beef and 46% pork.
77.1% Italians eat fruit and vegetables every day.
GDAs are the Daily Indicative Amounts adequate energy and nutrients to a balanced diet (energy, total fat, saturated fat, total carbohydrates, total sugars, protein, dietary fiber, sodium). This allows you to evaluate, during the day, the energy contribution of specific nutrients in the amount of food consumed. Guideline daily amounts are based on a diet of 2000 kcal. GDA Guideline Daily Amounts
Calories Calories measure the amount of energy you use during the day: the energy needed for not only our physical activity, but for anything we do, even sleep and breathe. Obviously more active plus the need of calories increases and vice versa.
Carbohydrates In a balanced diet on 60% of calories should come from carbohydrates, of which at least three-quarters in the form of complex carbohydrates and the remainder in the form of simple carbohydrates
Complex carbohydrates are represented mainly by starch and fiber. The first (a compound made up of many glucose molecules) is present in good number especially in cereals, pulses and potatoes.
The simple carbohydrates, commonly called sugars, consist of one or two molecules and are mostly equipped with a sweet taste. Are digested and absorbed faster than complex carbohydrates, and need to be balanced by these for a constant supply of energy over time.
Fat There are two different types of fats on package labels: -Saturated fats, which come from animal sources -Unsaturated fats, which come from fish and from plant sources.
Unsaturated fats are found in olive oil, fish oil, nuts, avocados and sunflower seeds.
Saturated fats tend to raise the level of cholesterol in the blood and, therefore, increases the risk of onset in cardio- vascular diseases..
Among them are food especially milk products (cheese, whole milk, cream, butter), fatty meats and their derivatives and certain vegetable oils (Palm oil and coconut oil).
Sodium Is the salt component that regulates the water balance of the whole body. An excess can raise your blood pressure.
Calcium Is the predominant element: from 1.5% to 2.0% of body weight (about 1,200 grams for an adult man weighing about 70 kg) and is distributed as follows: 98% in the skeleton; 1% in the teeth; 1% within the organic liquids and blood
Functions of Calcium are: Construction of the skeleton and teeth, Regulation of muscle contraction (including the heart), blood clotting, Transmission of nerve impulses, Regulation of cellular permeability Correct operation of numerous enzymes.
Potassium is the 0.35% of body weight. Is present in the form of primarily ion within cells and less extracellular liquids. Potassium is used to: Skeletal muscle function and myocardial infarction; Neuromuscular excitability, regulation Acid-base balance, Retention, Osmotic pressure.
Water, as everyone knows, is the most important component in our bodies. Suffice it to say that its percentage in adults is between 55 and 60 percent, therefore in smaller quantities than in newborns (75%) and greater than the elderly.
Water is very important to life and has many functions, among which the most important are: Regulation of water-salt balance Structural Nutrient dilution (favors the digestive process) Elimination of metabolic waste Regulation of body temperature Adjusting the consistency of the joints
The presence of water is essential in the blood, not only because it is the main element of the plasma (the liquid part of the blood), but also because it serves the very important function to adjust the volume of the blood and its fluidity.
