W HAT IS MY F ITNESS P AL ? My fitness pal is a website made to monitor your calorie intake. For example to lose weight or to gain weight. This can also help monitor your exercise and if you need to do more or less.
W HAT DO YOU HAVE TO RECORD ? In my fitness pal you need to monitor your intake of food (to work out your calorie intake) and what sporting activities you do (to workout your calorie loss). You should try to make your food diaries as accurate as possible and you should try to input things as you eat them. You also have to record your height and weight to make it as accurate as possible as this effects how many calories you may lose in a certain activity.
W HAT DOES THE WEBSITE SHOW YOU ? The website shows you how much you eat and may help you understand that you need to lose/gain weight and will help you maintain your goal and will be easy to maintain as it will always be available in a click of a button.
M Y FINDINGS Most popular foods: Breakfast: White Toast and Tea Snacks: Pepperoni Pizza and Suso Lunch: Jacket Potato and Suso Snacks: Omelette/Fried Egg Sandwich Dinner: Chicken Casserole with Mash
C ONTINUED … Over or above daily calories: I found that the days I had sports those were the days that I seemed to have a lower total of calories as I lost a lot of them playing more sport.
C ONTINUED … Were you over or under your goal: I seemed to have gained weight over the duration of using my fitness pal and gained 1kg. In the space of a month and a half.
D ISCUSSION A CTIVITY 1.Which contains the most calories: Carbohydrates/Proteins/Fats? 2.What exercises would you think would burn the most calories? 3.What jobs do you think would burn the most energy?
C ALORIE I NTAKE OF A PROFESSIONAL - D IEGO F ORLAN 8am: Breakfast Diego Forlan: I start the day with a plate of pineapple. I like sweet things and the taste wakes me up. Then I’ll have some toast – brown bread – with butter, followed by yoghurt. Sometimes I will eat an omelette with ham and cheese – I like the white of the egg rather than the yolk. To drink, maybe I’ll take some freshly squeezed orange juice, and that’s enough fuel before training.. 1pm: Lunch Diego: After two or three hours of training I will go straight for lunch. Maybe I’ll have it at the club; maybe at a restaurant in Madrid with friends or family. Whoever I’m with, I tend to have pasta or rice and chicken. Perhaps I’ll have spaghetti with oil on top and maybe a little bit of cheese. If I take the chicken, then it will be grilled and never fried. That’s much better for you. 4pm: Afternoon snack Diego: Later in the afternoon, I will usually put some fruits like orange and pineapple into a blender and drink the juice. What do you call that in English? (A smoothie). OK, I did not know that. I’ll add a little water and ice and it becomes a smoothie, right? It tastes good, especially in the hot Madrid summer. The nutrition people say that you should have at least five portions of fruit or vegetables each day. I think I have at least 10! Maybe I’ll take a toasted sandwich with that too, or some cereal. 9pm: Evening meal Diego: I’ll eat my last meal of the day at night. In Manchester, people ate their dinner at 5pm or 6pm. In Madrid, they don’t go out for a meal until 11pm in the summer because it’s too hot before then. If I’m at home then I’ll eat around 9pm, usually some fish with salad. I like lots of fresh tomatoes and steamed vegetables. I know the food I eat is healthy and good for my body, but I really enjoy everything that I eat. And not everything I eat is good. Sometimes, just sometimes, I will have some dulce de leche (caramelised milk). You don’t really have that in England. For drinks, I have a lot of water throughout the day to stay hydrated. I have water in training too. I don’t drink alcohol and I’m not used to it. I tried it when I was younger, but have not had it for many years.
