4 Vegetarianism 4 types of diets:
Are vegetarians able to meet their nutritional needs through their daily food intake? 4 types of diets: Vegans: no animal products are consumed Lactovegetarians: eats dairy products, but do not consume any other animal products Ovolactovegetarians: eats eggs and dairy products, but do not consume any other animal products Semivegetarian: eats a small selection of poultry, fish, and other seafood in addition to eggs and dairy products

5 Reading Labels Ingredients are listed by % of total weight, in order from highest to lowest Law requires the following on a label: # of servings per container # of calories per serving % of total fat (including saturated fat), cholesterol, sodium, total carbohydrates (including fiber & sugars), protein, vitamin, and minerals

6 Reading Labels cont… Daily Value Based on 2,000 to 2,500 calorie/day
If you eat more or less, your personal daily value will change For total carbohydrates, dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals, your daily value goal is to reach 100% Choose foods with a low % daily value for fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium

7 Key Words & Health Claims on Product Labels
Key words on product labels Fat free Low fat Lean Light Health claims about: Heart disease & Fats Blood pressure & Sodium Heart disease and fruits, vegetables, and grain products

8 Healthy Food Shopping Read labels while shopping
Serving sizes # of servings per container Compare the total # of calories in similar products Shop for quick, low fat food items and lower calorie staples See bulleted list in book for low fat/low calorie choices

9 Fast Food / Eating Out Quick service & low prices
High in fat and calories Low in many essential nutrients and dietary fiber Is it possible to make healthy choices at fast food restaurants??? Look at the nutritional info at restaurants Broiled, baked, roasted vs. Fried Look at the portion size

10 Dietary Supplements Is it necessary to take a dietary supplement???
The best and most preferred method is to eat a healthy diet Dietary supplements are often less effective in delivering these nutrients to your body More does not mean better

Taken in concentrations higher than the RDA, may result in the following: undesirable side effects toxicity interfere with the absorption of other vital nutrients Certain conditions and lifestyles may require supplementation (anemia, pregnancy, & vegetarianism)

12 Weight Loss Products Appetite Suppressants Metabolism Boosters

13 Appetite Suppressants
Description: Suppresses the appetite by increasing a feeling of fullness, resulting in a reduction of food intake Cautions: deficiencies of important nutrients Example: dexatrim

14 Metabolism Boosters Description:
Increases your basal metabolic rate Increases the building of lean muscle mass & decreases the production of fat They are intended to be used with a sound exercise program Caution: long term effects are not known Examples: creatine phosphate & metabolite

15 Programs Design: Cautions: Examples: Slim Fast & Jenny Craig
Utilizes a reduced-calorie diet Some are pre-packed foods Others replace meals with shakes Many have maintenance plans once you have reached your weight loss goal Cautions: “yo-yo” dieting, BMR drops Examples: Slim Fast & Jenny Craig

16 Problems Associated with Fad Diets
Programs are based on unsound information, and may have no basis in scientific fact Severe caloric restriction Nutritional deficits “yo-yo” effect Weight loss is water & muscle, not fat Does not teach healthy behavior modification and a healthy lifestyle

17 Red Flags when Considering a Weight Loss Plan
Claims that no exercise or calorie reduction is necessary Costly Emphasizes a particular food Extreme results over little time Does not include behavior modification

18 Harmful Aspects of Dieting
Considered severe caloric restriction when ingesting less than 800 calories/day 50% of the weight loss is muscle loss Heart muscle can be affected Problems with blood pressure dropping Dizziness, lightheaded, and fatigue Problems with nausea and abdominal pain

19 Body Composition 1 of the 5 components of health related fitness
% of body fat in relationship to an individual’s lean body mass Better indicator of overall health and fitness than a person’s actual body weight Current ideal standards Males: 7-15% Females: 18-23%

20 Weight Management Proper nutrition Regular physical activity
Choose a healthy assortment of food that are low in fats and sugars (vegetables, fruits, whole grains, skim milk, fish, lean cuts of meat, and beans) Choose sensible portion sizes Check product labels for calories, number of servings, & fat grams Regular physical activity

21 What is a Healthy Body Weight?
Best indicator is body composition Body Mass Index Based on the notion that weight is proportional to height

22 Ideal Weight vs. Natural Weight
“Ideal weight” is often unrealistic Natural weight is achieved when a person eats healthy portions of a variety of foods Natural weight: constant calorie restrictions and hunger are not necessary

23 Determining Caloric Needs
Caloric needs are different for every individual Method #1 Target body weight Females: (inches over 5ft X 5lbs) Males: (inches over 5ft X 6lbs) Target weight X 10 = Calories for weight Calories for weight + Activity level = Daily Calorie Allowance Method #2 Multiply your body weight by the activity factor that applies to you
