  1. 1. Eat Healthy!<br />By: Débora Cunha, Beatriz Jacob, Rodrigo Ussier and Luis Esteve<br />Team Red<br />
  2. 2. Nutrients<br />Nutrients are the substances in food that provide the raw materials and energy your body needs to carry all its essencial processes; it also gives us energy<br />There are various types of nutrients, for example carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water<br />
  3. 3. Carbohydrates<br />Carbohydrates are the “first burn”, also known as the first source of energy you use when exercising<br />Simple carbs- Small molecules made of sugar, like glucose. It’s very small, therefore there’s no need to be broken down into smaller molecules. Examples: honey, milk/dairy products, regular soda, many processed snack food, etc. <br />Complex carbs- Larger molecules, like starch. Do need to be broken down into smaller molecules. Examples: bread, fruit, pasta, chocolate, etc. <br />
  4. 4. Lipids<br />Lipids provides energy, form part of the cell membrane; fatty tissue also protects and supports your internal organs; insulates your body.<br />Unsaturated Fats- They are liquid at room temperature. Example: cooking oils <br />Saturated Fats- Solid at room temperature. Too much clogs vessels. Example: Butter<br />
  5. 5. Proteins<br />They are needed for tissue growth and repair and they play an important part in chemical reactions in our cells. <br />They are made from amino acids <br />
  6. 6. Vitamins<br />Vitamins are good for your whole body and a little of each of them would be great<br />Vitamin A- good for hair and bones<br />Vitamin B- prevents anemia and helps RBC<br />Vitamin C- helps immune system<br />Vitamin D- helps bone formation<br />Vitamin K- helps blood clotting<br />Water Soluble- gets dissolved in water. Example: B,C<br />Fat Soluble- get dissolved in fatty tissue and stays in body a little bit longer. Example: A, D<br />
  7. 7. Minerals<br />Aren’t related to living things. Body needs a little bit of each mineral to carry out chemical reactions. <br />Calcium- helps build teeth, bones and helps muscle <br />Iodine- helps in release of energy <br />Iron- needed for RBC<br />Potassium- helps maintain water, muscle and never balance<br />Sodium- maintains water balance and nerve function <br />
  8. 8. Water<br />Water is the most essential nutrient of all because most of the body’s vital processes (example: breaking down nutrients and chemical reactions) take place in water. <br />
  9. 9. Analysis<br />KEY<br /> <br />Bolded = Is rich in<br />Underlined = Has some<br />Scratched through = Barely any<br />
