  • On the evening of 13 Aug, I ordered two portions of garlic bread and veg. lasagna from Biteclub to celebrate my husband's promotion, but they delivered us meat lasagna. Could you believe this? They have a website and all hankies-pankies but can't make a straight order. I would never order from Biteclub again, it ruined my evening.

    29. 29. PHYSICAL ACTIVITY : Why is it important ?
    30. 30. P HYSICAL A CTIVITY : Importance <ul><li>This includes : </li></ul><ul><li>Cardio-respiratory i.e. Heart & Lung fitness </li></ul><ul><li>Muscle strength </li></ul><ul><li>Endurance & flexibility </li></ul>
    31. 31. P HYSICAL A CTIVITY : Types of physical activity <ul><li>Daily Chores: walking, climbing stairs, cycling, household activities, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Exercise: planned & structured subset of leisure time physical activity undertaken for improving or maintaining physical fitness. </li></ul><ul><li>30-60 minutes every day </li></ul>
    32. 32. P HYSICAL A CTIVITY : Keeping in shape <ul><li>It is recommended to have 30-60 min. moderate physical activity on weekdays, four days a week </li></ul><ul><li>It is not necessary to exercise continuously </li></ul><ul><li>Can be divided into 10 -15 minutes of activities several times through the day </li></ul>
    33. 33. Nutrition & Exercise: Myths <ul><li>Girls don’t need muscle stretching exercises </li></ul><ul><li>You can become obese if you leave exercise </li></ul><ul><li>Expensive food and vitamins are needed for good health and machines for exercise </li></ul><ul><li>Health drinks </li></ul>
    34. 34. Television and Obesity <ul><li>Excessive TV watching is associated with weight gain specially when associated with increased snacking with junk food and aerated drinks </li></ul><ul><li>TVsterol </li></ul><ul><li>Combine TV watching with physical activity like stationary bicycling, or spot jogging </li></ul>
    35. 35. What is Body Mass Index (BMI)? Body mass index measurement combined with your Waist Circumference measurement can be used to determine obesity and the increased risk for various diseases. To calculate your  Body Mass Index , take your weight (in kilograms),   and divide by your height (in meters) squared.                     Formula for Body Mass Index:              
    36. 36. What the BMI numbers mean <ul><li>Below 18.5 Underweight 18.5 – 24.9 Normal 25.0 – 29.9 Overweight 30.0 and Above Obese </li></ul>
    37. 38. Ways to Reach (and Maintain!) a Healthy Weight <ul><li>Diets aren't the way to go when it comes to losing weight. That's because they create temporary eating patterns — and, therefore, temporary results. </li></ul><ul><li>Most dieters gain back any lost weight when they go back to their old eating habits. </li></ul><ul><li>Weight loss is most likely to be successful when people change their habits, replacing old, unhealthy ones with new, healthy behaviors. </li></ul>
    38. 39. <ul><li>Health care professionals generally agree that the most effective way to lose weight is to do it gradually. Exaggerated weight loss in a short period of time can be dangerous, and can often lead to a subsequent regaining of the weight, dubbed “yo-yo” dieting. </li></ul>
    39. 40. So how much should you lose, and how should you lose it? The general rule is About one-half to one pound per week which promotes long-term loss of body fat. 
    40. 41. <ul><li>  Regular physical activity burns calories and builds muscle — both of which help you look and feel good and keep weight off. </li></ul><ul><li>If you want to burn more calories, increase the intensity of your workout and add some strength exercises to build muscle. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn, even when you aren't exercising. </li></ul>Here are 5 ways to make that happen :
    41. 42. 2.Reduce screen time <ul><li>One reason people get less exercise these days is because of an increase in &quot;screen time&quot; — the amount of time spent watching TV, looking at the computer, or playing video games. </li></ul>Limit recreational screen time to less than 1 hour per day.
    42. 43. 3.Watch out for portion distortion <ul><li>.  Serving sizes have increased over the past 10 years, and these extra calories contribute to obesity. </li></ul><ul><li>Another key factor in weight gain is that more people drink sugary beverages, such as sodas, juice drinks, and sports drinks. So choose smaller portions (or share restaurant portions) and go for water or low-fat milk instead of soda. </li></ul>
    43. 44. 4.Eat 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day <ul><li>Fruits and veggies are about more than just vitamins and minerals. They're also packed with fiber, which means they fill you up. </li></ul><ul><li>And when you fill up on fruits and veggies, you're less likely to overeat when it comes to high-calorie foods like chips or cookie </li></ul>
    44. 45. 5.Don't skip breakfast. <ul><li>  Breakfast kick-starts your metabolism, burning calories from the get-go and giving you energy to do more during the day. People who skip breakfast often feel so hungry that they eat more later on. So they get more calories than they would have if they ate breakfast. </li></ul>
    45. 46. Breakfast: The most important meal <ul><li>Brain Food </li></ul><ul><li>Improves performance in studies </li></ul><ul><li>Improves physical activities </li></ul><ul><li>Does not contribute to overweight </li></ul><ul><li>Keeps you healthy </li></ul><ul><li>Skipping breakfast associated with obesity </li></ul><ul><li>High sugar breakfast causes a high sugar level which dips fast making you more hungry and you eat more sugary food </li></ul>
    46. 47. Junk the Junk food! <ul><li>It is food that tastes great, but is low on nutrition and high on calories </li></ul><ul><li>Junk Food is an accepted slang term ( and often a derogatory term) used to describe any food of poor nutritional value </li></ul><ul><li>It is the opposite of &quot;balanced diet. </li></ul><ul><li>Generally, junk foods offer little in terms of vitamins, protein, vitamins or minerals and are loaded with calories from sugar or fat. These are termed &quot; empty calories&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>What is considered Junk Food? </li></ul><ul><li>A Most fast food restaurants serve food that has fat as the main calorie  </li></ul>
    47. 48. Why is Fast Food unhealthy ? <ul><li>High in calorie, fat, sodium and low in fiber which can cause </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Obesity, Hypertension, Heart diseases, Diabetes, Cancer etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Contains preservatives </li></ul><ul><li>Choose low-calorie and low-fat meals, snacks and desserts </li></ul><ul><li>Have low fat or skim milk drinks. </li></ul>
    48. 49. <ul><li>Food Nutrition in Snacks </li></ul><ul><li>Snacks, like , Potato Chips, burger,french fries, and, are not a recommended food for any healthy eating plan or weight loss diet. Typically, they are heavily refined foods, high in calories, high in fat and sodium, with a very low nutritional value. </li></ul><ul><li>A small serving can contain 100+ calories. </li></ul><ul><li>Nutrients in Snacks </li></ul><ul><li>Macronutrients in some foods include carbohydrate, fat and some protein. </li></ul><ul><li>Energy in Snacks </li></ul><ul><li>Vitamins in Snacks </li></ul><ul><li>Snackfoods are not a recommended source of vitamins. </li></ul>Clearly, if you eat a lot of fast food everyday, your daily calorie intake will skyrocket
    49. 50. Calorie content of fast food Preparation Quantity for one serving Calories (Kcal) Kathi roll 1 Nos 280 Masala vada 2 Nos 150 Masala dosa 1 Nos 200 Chowmin 100 gm 230 Samosa 1 Nos 200 Sandwiches (butter 2 2tsp) 2 Nos 200 Vegetable puff 1 Nos 170 Pizza(cheese and tomato) 1 Nos 200 Burger 250 Fruit cake 1piece 280 Milk chocolate 25 g 380 Ice cream ½ cup 200 Cold drinks 1 bottle (200 ml) 150
    50. 51. <ul><li>You may have noticed that you feel hungry a lot. This is natural — during adolescence, a person's body demands more nutrients to grow. Snacks are a terrific way to satisfy that hunger and get all the vitamins and nutrients, your body needs. </li></ul><ul><li>But you need to pay attention to what you eat. Stuffing your face with a large order of fries after class may give you a temporary boost, but a snack this high in fat and calories will only slow you down in the long run. </li></ul><ul><li>To keep energy levels going — and avoid weight gain — steer clear of foods with lots of simple carbohydrates (sugars) like candy bars or soda. Look for foods that contain complex carbohydrates like whole-grain breads and cereals and combine them with protein-rich snacks </li></ul> Why Healthy Snacking Is Good for You???
    51. 52. Do healthy snacks exist ? <ul><li>Yes, and in plenty. </li></ul><ul><li>Snacks like fresh fruits, sprouted beans and nuts are nutritious and healthy. </li></ul><ul><li>Choose low-calorie and low-fat meals, snacks and desserts </li></ul><ul><li>Have low fat or skim milk drinks. </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid energy dense snacks like burgers. </li></ul>
    52. 53. The Middle Path: Making Junk food healthy <ul><li>Replace the Cheese with Paneer or low-fat cheese </li></ul><ul><li>Add plenty of vegetables </li></ul><ul><li>Replace frying with grilling or baking </li></ul><ul><li>Replace white bread, maida noodles or maida pizza base with whole-grain wheat </li></ul><ul><li>Have low-fat or skimmed milk based products </li></ul>
    53. 55. If I Eat Well at Home, What's Wrong With Splurging When I Eat Out? <ul><li>A slice of pizza once in a while won't do you any harm. What's important is a person's average food intake over a few days, not just in a single meal. So if you eat a less-than-healthy meal once in a while, try to balance it with healthier foods the rest of that day and week. </li></ul><ul><li>But if pizza (or any fast food) is all you eat, that can lead to problems. The most obvious health threat of eating too much fast food is weight gain — or even obesity. </li></ul><ul><li>But weight gain isn't the only problem. Too much fast food can drag a person's body down in other ways. Because the food we eat affects all aspects of how the body functions, eating the right (or wrong) foods can influence any number of things, including: </li></ul><ul><li>mental functioning </li></ul>
    54. 56. <ul><li>energy </li></ul><ul><li>emotional well-being </li></ul><ul><li>strength </li></ul><ul><li>weight </li></ul><ul><li>future health </li></ul><ul><li>Eating on the Go </li></ul><ul><li>It's actually easier than you think to make good choices at a fast-food restaurant, the mall, or even the school cafeteria. Most cafeterias and fast-food places offer healthy choices that are also tasty, like grilled chicken or salads. Be mindful of portion sizes and high fat add-ons, like dressings, sauces or cheese. </li></ul><ul><li>some pointe to remember that can help you make wise choices when eating out: </li></ul><ul><li>Go for balance.  Choose meals that contain a balance of lean proteins (like fish, chicken, or beans if you're a vegetarian), fruits and vegetables (fries and potato chips don't qualify as veggies!), and whole-grains (like whole wheat bread). </li></ul><ul><li>Watch portion sizes. . </li></ul><ul><li>Drink water or low-fat milk.  Regular sodas, juices, and energy drinks usually contain &quot;empty&quot; calories that you don't need </li></ul>
    55. 57. Food Habits of Teens causing concern Skipping breakfast Increased foods from 'other' food group Increased eating outside Soft drink consumption
    57. 59. <ul><li>Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly </li></ul>
    58. 60. Always wash your hand well with soap and warm water , before and after food handling
    59. 61. <ul><li>Do not consume samosas, </li></ul><ul><li>tikkies, snack & other foods </li></ul><ul><li>that have been prepared </li></ul><ul><li>earlier and kept out for </li></ul><ul><li>long. Remember, always </li></ul><ul><li>consume hot foods hot and </li></ul><ul><li>cold foods cold. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
    60. 62. <ul><li>Street foods & food safety </li></ul>
    61. 63. Besides dangers of dust and foreign matter, uncovered food attract pests, particularly flies and cockroaches.
