In nutrition and everyday language, calories refer to energy consumption through eating and drinking and energy usage through physical activity. For example, an apple may have 80 calories, while a 1 mile walk may use up about 100 calories.

14 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín Recommended Daily Calorie Guidelines Average adult female – 2000 Average adult male – 2500 Teenagers need a higher calorie intake because they are growing

15 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín Why Do We Need Calories? We need a certain number of calories just to function. Even if you are not moving your lungs need to pump oxygen, your heart needs to pump blood, your kidneys need to excrete wastes, your liver needs to detoxify and your brain needs to coordinate what your body is doing.

16 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín Organ Calorie Usage Heart12% of calories Kidneys12% of calories Liver23% of calories Brain23% of calories Skeletal Muscle30% of calories

17 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín How Many Calories In:

18 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín Remember Every packaged item that you buy must contain nutritional information on a label. This will list the amount of carbohydrates, sugar, fats, protein, salt, calories, etc. in the food, normally given per portion size.

19 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín AB Examples of food labelling

20 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín Food Labelling Explained A snickers bar has 250 calories BUT calories are not the only things you should look at!!! 27grams of sugar (4 grams of sugar =1 teaspoon) So there are almost 7 teaspoons of sugar in a snickers. You should also look at the salt content. It is recommended you only have 6 grams of salt a day

21 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín Remember We need calories to function properly Eating too many calories in a day has a negative impact on your health Equally important eating too little calories everyday can also have a hugely negative impact on your daily functions, as well as your hair, skin and nails.

22 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín

23 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín 5+ portions 5 portions 2-3 portions 0-3 portions Another way to achieve a balanced diet is to use the Food Pyramid

24 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín Eating Habits in Coolmine We surveyed a number of students, both male and female on their daily food and drink intake. The results in the following slides are their calories consumed, five days a week, over a one year period. (Survey carried out in 2013/14)

25 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín REMEMBER We need calories to carry out our everyday activities. Not all calories are bad. Excessive calories, as long as they are burnt off through exercise is fine e.g.. a professional athlete may consume up to 10000 calories a day but exercise for several hours. Food is very important to our health but its equally important we get enough good foods. Treats are fine but should be just that – a treat and not something you have several times a day

26 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín Transition Year Female Breakfast: biscuits x 3 and tea Lunch: chocolate bar and half crisp roll Dinner: tuna and pasta Snacks: noodles, biscuits and tea Approx 2600 calories. This is 450 calories over the daily allowance. This amounts to 146000 extra calories a year Which if not burnt off equals 3 stone weight gain over a year Aside from the calories this is a poor diet as there is no fruit and vegetables or water.

27 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín 2 nd Year Male Breakfast: 2 slices of toast and tea Small break: can of coke and half a sausage baguette Big break: half a curry chip roll Dinner: pasta & water Supper: tea & toast and a couple of biscuits Total = 2898.

28 Coolmine Community School Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín 6 th Year Female Breakfast: nothing Small break: half a crisp roll Big break: half a meatball roll Dinner: nothing Drinks: cappucino & lucozade Total = 1480. This is 670 less than the daily allowance. This will result in excessive tiredness, lack of energy, poor teeth, hair, nails and skin health. Aside from the calories this is a very poor diet as there is no fruit, vegetables or water. Not having breakfast has a serious effect on your metabolism.

Bowl of weetabix Small Break: banana Big Break: apple, brown bread sandwich with cheese, lettuce, tomato and ham Dinner: breast of chicken, carrots, peas and potatoes, bag of crisps Drinks: 5 glasses of water and 2 cups of tea This is a much more balanced diet where the male got plenty of fruit and vegetables.
