The Healthy College Lifestyle by Dan Schultz
This is not a diet
This is a lifestyle change to help you for the rest of your life
Help educate on proper nutrition and exercise
Prove nutritional myths false
Not covering things already encouraged by other health initiatives, such as wear a condom and don’t smoke
Get the audience to Implement this knowledge into their everyday life
Individual must be motivated to start the program and to make it a habit.
The key to a successful lifestyle change is having sound and proper nutrition even more then a proper workout routine
Must find Healthy food you actually enjoy and don’t have to force down
A good balance between protein, complex carbohydrates and some healthy fats.
It is Optimal to have 4-6 smaller meals every 3 to 4 hours, but can be accomplished if on tight budget with 3 larger meals.
Having 4-6 Smaller meals helps keep your Metabolism stay elevated, absorb the nutrients better and also helps you to feel less hungry.
Allow a day for a cheat meal each week to enjoy a not so healthy food option.
Don’t starve yourself, if hungry eat.
Will lose weight--but not quickly this is steady gradual process. (Also depends on what your diet use to be and exercise routine was before)
Start off by calculating a rough estimate of how many calories you burn a day with this website http:// www.caloriesperhour.com/index_burn.html C hoose whatever fits your lifestyle best.
Then divide that by the amount of meals you think you are going to be able to eat a day
Your Calorie Intake Depends on your goal. if you want weight loss you can subtract 500 calories from your estimate to lose a pound a week or if wanting to bulk up have an excess of 500 calories a day. 1-2 pounds is a healthy weight loss a week.
Calorie count the best you can, if you can measure it out. but don’t become obsessive, do your best, Do not count vegetables and fruits just eat till your satisfied.
They are the preferred nutritional source of energy
Carbs help increase brain function, increases endurance for prolonged exercises, also helps in the recovery process after exercising, and causes a "Protein Sparing" effect so that protein is used to increase muscle tissue and recovery.
Eating Carbs dose not make you fat, anything in excess will make you fat.
Know Difference between carbs, Complex and simple Carbs
Can Measure the difference between Complex and Simple carbs using the glycemic index
The rating on the glycemic index is related to its effect on spiking blood sugar. This is important because when your blood sugar spikes, your pancreas secretes the hormone insulin to shuttle glucose from your blood into your body cells
with slower absorbing carbs your body has a easier time of storing it, and the more energy will be stored in your muscle cells and help you feel more satisfied after your meal.
Simple carbs have been known to increase the chance of higher incidence of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even breast cancer.
According to the world Health Organization, Sugars and other simple carbohydrates are a leading factor in the worldwide obesity epidemic.
Simple carbs can lead to cravings and compulsive eating, cause wide swings in your blood sugar levels and cause weight gain in most people.
Examples are : Table Sugar, Corn Syrup, Fruit Juice, Candy, Cake, Bread Made with White Flour, Pasta made with white flour, Soda, Candy, All baked goods with white flour, most packaged cereals.
Look on Labels for sugar, surcose, fructose, corn syrup and white flour
Complex carbs are usually high in fiber which helps with digestion, and help stabilize your blood sugar, keeping your energy at a stabilized level. Also contain many important vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. Most of complex carbs are more naturally occurring and not refined.
Ever in doubt about if it’s a complex carbohydrate or not check the glygemic index http://www.glycemicedge.com/glycemicindextable.html
Don’t avoid some fruits just because they are high in the glycemic index like watermelon and pineapple--They still contain important nutrients.
Complex carbs continued
Breakfast Foods: look for words like Whole grain Wheat, Fiber, Whole Grain Oats. Cereals Like KashI Go Lean (Not Crunch), Kashi Cinnamon Harvest, Vans All Natural Gourmet Multi-Grain Premium Waffles, shredded wheat 100% whole grain, kashi heart to heart, fiber one, total whole grain, cheerios, quaker oats old fashioned, ezekiel 4;9 sprouted whole grain cereal, nature’s path organic heritage o’s heirloom whole grains,
Breads; stove ground whole wheat flour, bakers inn bread, dutch country double fiber, browberry whole grain, anything with 100% whole wheat. Also Barilla, heartland whole wheat pasta.
Proteins are found literally everywhere in your system. From your muscle tissues, to the enzymes that digest your food, to your skin cells, and even within your blood.
We take in the protein from the foods we eat and drink. Proteins get broken down into essential amino acids, 9 of them are essentials and the other 11 are non-essential
Failing to obtain the nine essential amino acids will lead to muscle break down and we must take in amino acids on a daily basis because our body can not store excess amino acids
The amount of protein needed from one’s diet varies from .36 times your body weight for a sedentary individual to 1-1.5 gram per pound of body weight for athletes looking to gain muscle.
Excess protein dose not cause damage to the kidneys or other side effects as was originally thought
Eating excess protein will not make you fat, just because you eat something with high protein value and you didn’t do any exercise that day dose not mean your body made it into fat instead, calories in v.s. calories out.
Protein takes more energy to breakdown then carbohydrates, which means your body will be burning more calories to break down and absorb protein, then it would with other nutrients.
This also means it is in your stomach for a longer period of time, which increases the satiety of your meal. This helps people who are trying to lose weight.
Some complete proteins are meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, and milk.
Vegetable proteins include legumes, grains, nuts and seeds.
Protein Supplements like Whey Protein are optimal for post workout nutrition because of its fast absorbing properties, it helps build muscle, enhances your endurance and recovery.
Breakfast Examples: Eggs, Egg Whites, Turkey Ham,
Milk and cheese: low fat or fat free cottage cheese, low fat string cheese, Low fat cheese, Fat Free or low fat milk, Low Sugar fat free yogurt, Dannon Light and fit.
Meats and fish: lean beef, white skinless meat, poultry, fish and seafood, not fried, Turkey Burgers, Chicken Brats.
Beans and Nuts, almonds, walnuts
Supplements: Optimum 100% Whey Protein Isolate, Bsn Syntha 6 protein, and on casein protein. Pure Protein Bars and detour protein bars.
Fats won’t make you fat. you need healthy fats in your diet. excess calories make you fat.
Healthy fats help regulate bodily processes such as heart rate, blood vessel constriction, blood pressure, blood clotting, and nervous system activity.
Help keeps the body insulated, maintains healthy hair and skin, Helps fat soluble vitamins like a, d, e and k be transported to body’s tissues, helps with normal metabolic function, and joint pain.
Healthy Fats include Monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and omega-3’s.
Bad fats include saturated fat and trans fat
These fats have been associated with heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
Limit saturated fat and eliminate trans fats from diet.
Healthy fats continued
Monounsaturated fats are found in foods like nuts, avocados, olive oil, corn oil and canola oil.
Omega 3 fats are found in cold water fish like mackerel, salmon, and herring and also in walnuts, flax seeds, and flax oil.
These fats can also be supplemented with pills, but it is optimal to be eaten from real food.
Examples: smuckers natural peanut butter, smart balance omega 3 peanut butter, any natural peanut butter, walnuts, pecans, peanuts not salted,
Can be a weekly meal in which you eat excess calories then you normally would and of a not so healthy food option like topper sticks, butter burger, peanut butter m&M’s or a crunch wrap supreme.
Can be a weekly, two week, monthly.
Don’t binge control yourself, not a whole day but just one meal and then move on.
Can be alcohol
If you don’t want to cheat you don’t have to just if you need it.

Can damage the kidney’s, liver, and stomach
Alcohol lowers testosterone
Testosterone has a powerful fat loss affect and helps to contribute to lean body mass gains
Lowered testosterone leads to less muscle gain and fewer muscles leads to lower metabolic rate.
Alcohol also increases Appetite too.
Not saying to not drink.

Skim or low fat milk
Any type of unsweetened tea
Diet soda or diet tea-be careful with aspartame,
