  • Healthy and Unhealthy Food ChoicesWhen choosing healthy foods, you want to make sure you choose nutrient dense foods. Nutrient dense foods are foods that have a high vitamin and mineral content. Foods like vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, and seeds are examples of foods that are nutrient dense. The recommended acceptable ranges for these macronutrients are as follows: proteins should be 10-35% of total calorie intake, fat should be 20-35% of total calorie intake, and carbohydrates should be the largest part of your calorie intake (45-65%). You want to avoid foods that have empty calories in your diet. Foods with very low calories have sparse amounts of nutrients per calorie in them. Soda is a great example of an empty calorie food. Even if it is low or calorie free, you are still drinking compounds that have to be digested by your body.Bibliography:(M7 L2: Nutrition pg 4)

  • ObesityObesity is a complex disease involving an excessive amount of body fat. If a person's body weight is at least 20% higher than it should be, he or she is considered obese. A combination of physical inactivity and a poor diet high in saturated fats, simple carbohydrates and sugar can lead to obesity. Many of the issues associated with overeating are also associated with obesity. Some examples of these include high blood pressure, excess cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, breathing problems, and sleeping issues.Bibliography:(M7 L2: Nutrition pg 5)
