  • Energy is measured in calories. Calorie = Fat 9, Carbs 4 Protein 4. Slice of Pizza…….230, 290 with pepperoni. Run one mile and you burn it off. So you need to refuel to maintain a healthy body if you are not trying to lose weight.
  • Body is 60% water
  • Body has to have electrolytes in balance, they are replaced by power drinks. Too much water can rid your body of necessary electrolytes.
  • Reference: CDC Overweight and Obesity:Rethink your student’s Drink. Soda/caffeinated drinks do not provide quality hydration.
  • Everything we do burns calories, which is our fuel for energy. The more we burn the more we can eat. If we eat more than we burn we gain weight . If we eat less than we burn we lose weight. Healthy living means a healthy balance where we burn what we eat to maintain a healthy body and mind.
  • Physical activity can be fun all year round
  • Reference: CDC and Prevention
  • The more you burn the more you need to replenish
  • Staying active keeps you healthy in body and mind and is fun!
  • Our bodies need to recharge.
  • When you are active, you need to recharge. Get plenty of rest.
  • Reference:

  • Reference: retrieved 9/21/2011
  • The less you burn, the less you need to replenish
  • Reference: The Female Athlete Triad. Disordered eating.
  • Anorexia- Obesity. Muscle burns 6 calories per pound. Fat burns 2 calories per pound.
  • Sometimes we eat more from one group than another, but overall we should find balance. Eliminating any one group for a prolonged period of time will cause health problems. Be kind to your body, you are in it for a long time!
  • After fasting for 8 hours, your body needs fuel to get started. Eating breakfast will give you the necessary energy to get through the morning.
  • Don’t forget lunch! And add some fruit or veggies to balance out your food plate. You can see that you can eat a substantial amount and still have plenty of calories left for dinner and snacks!
  • Eat what you burn.
  • Enjoy the celebration of family and friends on the holidays, eat healthy, live healthy.

  • 8. Our bodies are made up of 60% water so we must
    replenish what we use.
    We rid our bodies of water by sweating, breathing,
    urinating and evaporation through our pores.
    We need to replenish this water and we have many choices
    Not all of them are as healthy as others.
    Sugar drinks, such as soda are high in calories and can lead
    to obesity.
    Sports drinks and energy drinks also contain sugar.
    As with all things we must keep balance in our lives.
    Healthy choices are water and low fat milk
    Drink plenty of water!

    70% of high school students do not get enough sleep
    on school nights.

  • 24. Childhood obesity facts
    In 2008, more that one-third of children and adolescents were
    overweight or obese. Overweight means having excess body weight
    from fat, muscle, bone, water or combination of these factors
    obesity means having excess body fat.
    This results from a caloric imbalance, too few calories
    burned off to the amount taken in.
    Obesity in childhood can lead to health problems as an adult, such
    as high blood pressure and high cholesterol which can cause heart
    problems. It can also lead to Type II diabetes.
  • 25. Eat what you burn to maintain healthy living
  • 26. Too much of a good thing
    Balance is key in health and exercise.
    Just as too little exercise and too many calories can lead to
    problems so can too much exercise and too few calories.
    Some of these problems are:
    -weak bones
    -increase in injury
    -loss of menstrual periods
    -disordered eating
    -mood changes
  • 27. If you are going to the Galleria in your car, you make sure you
    have enough gas….if you are going to the local store, you won’t
    need as much gas.
    If you are sitting on the couch, you don’t need as
    much fuel as you do when you are exercising.
    If you eat the same amount for both activities, you are going to
    store the food as fat to be burned later, but if you continually
    eat more than you burn, you will continue to add fat to your
    body to store and end up obese.
    The same holds true if you don’t eat enough, your body will burn
    muscle to give you energy and you will begin to have health
    Too much or too little can both lead to life long
    health problems.
  • 28. For a person who practices 30 minutes to at least 60 minutes or more of moderate physical activity, the number of calories that they should eat:
    Girls------------14-18 years old 2000-2400 caloriesBoys------------14-18 years old 2400-3200 calories
  • 29. New Food Pyramid – Plate Icon2011

    We need protein for our bodies health,
    to grow and repair muscle
    Vitamins for healthy bones and teeth.
    Minerals for our body to function well, iron helps deliver
