Nu fsp chapter 11 weight loss

  1. 1. Copyright © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Permission required for reproduction or display. Chapter 11 Weight Loss
  2. 2. Basics of Weight Control How may Calories are in a pound of body fat? • 1 pound of fat = 454 grams • 1 gram of fat = ~ 9 Calories • 1 pound of pure fat = ~ 4,086 Calories • Body fat contains some protein, minerals and water • 1 pound of body fat = ~ 3,500 Calories
  3. 3. Is the caloric concept of weight control valid? • First Law of Thermodynamics – Energy is neither created nor destroyed
  4. 4. Caloric Concept of Weight Control • Caloric costs for changes in body mass – Fat = 9 Calories per gram – Protein = 4 Calories per gram – Carbohydrate = 4 Calories per gram – Water = 0 Calories per gram • Caloric cost of weight loss may vary • Loss of body fat, however, costs about 3,500 Calories /pound
  5. 5. Estimated Energy Requirement (EER) • A key factor is the Physical Activity Level (PAL), which is the TDEE divided by the BEE. The PAL is used to determine the Physical Activity (PA) coefficient
  6. 6. How much weight can I lose safely per week? • Without medical supervision – Recommended maximal amount • Adults: 2 pounds/week • Growing children: 1 pound/week – Realizable goals • Adults: 1 pound/week • Growing children: ½ pound/week – Weight loss should be body fat
  7. 7. 1. Behavior Modification • Learn new ways to deal with old problems • For weight control, reduce or eliminate physical or social stimuli that contribute to – Excessive caloric intake – Physical inactivity • Learn to eat a leaner, healthier diet • Learn to exercise more
  8. 8. How do I apply behavior-modification techniques in my weight-control program? • YOU are the most important component of your weight- control program • YOU must – Face the fact that being overweight impairs your health – Know that losing weight will improve your health – Establish weight loss as a high priority – Be able to tolerate some discomfort as you make changes
  9. 9. Behavior Modification • One of the first steps is to identify your dietary and exercise behaviors - Keep a 24-hour record
  10. 10. Diet and Exercise Behaviors • Establish long-range and short-range goals – Long-range • Lose 10-15% of body weight over 4-6 months – Short-range • Lose 1-2 pounds per week • Small behavior changes – “ Nothing builds success like success” – Small Steps
  11. 11. Behavior Modification: Suggestions • Self-discipline, self-control, and advanced planning • Foods to eat • Food purchasing • Food storage • Food preparation and serving • Location • Restaurant eating • Methods of eating • Activity • Mental attitude
  12. 12. Self-discipline, self-control, and advanced planning • Establish realistic weight-loss goals • Establish weight loss as a high priority • Think about this priority before eating • Take small helpings deliberately • Plan for a modest daily caloric deficit • Check your body weight on a regular basis
  13. 13. Foods to eat • Use low-Calorie healthful foods for snacks • Plan low-Calorie, high-nutrient meals • Plan your food intake for the entire day • Eat only foods that require no or minimal processing • Allow yourself small amounts of foods you like, but stay within daily caloric limits • Know the Food Exchange system, particularly portion size and high-fat foods and Calories per exchange
  14. 14. Food purchasing • Do not shop when hungry • Prepare a shopping list and do not deviate from it • Buy only nutrient-dense foods • Read and compare food labels • Buy natural foods as much as possible
  15. 15. Food storage • Keep high-Calorie foods out of sight • Have low-Calorie snacks like carrots and radishes readily available
  16. 16. Food preparation and serving • Buy mainly foods that require preparation of some type • Do not add fats or sugar in preparation, if possible • Prepare only small amounts. Be able to visualize one serving size for any given food • Do not use serving bowls on the table • Put the food on the plate, preferably a small one
  17. 17. Location • Eat in only one place, such as the kitchen or dining area • Avoid food areas such as the kitchen or snack table at a party • Avoid restaurants where you are most likely to buy high-Calorie items
  18. 18. Restaurant eating • When eating out, select the low-Calorie items • Request your meals be prepared without fat • Have condiments, like butter, mayonnaise, and salad dressing served on the side; use sparingly • Order water, not a high-Calorie beverage • Be wary of portion sizes as most restaurant servings contain 2-3 normal servings. Ask for a take-home container before you eat and put half of your meal in the box.
  19. 19. Methods of eating • Eat slowly. Chew your food thoroughly or drink water between bites • Eat with someone; conversation slows eating • Cut food into small pieces • Do not do anything else while eating • Relax and enjoy the meal • Eat only at specified times • Eat only until pleasantly satisfied, not stuffed • Spread your total Calories over the day; snack often
  20. 20. Activity • Decrease the amount of time spent being sedentary • Increase the amount of daily NEAT • Walk more • Use the stairs, not the elevator or escalator • Do exercise snacks. Brisk 10-minute walk • Get involved in physical activities with others • Avoid sedentary night routines • Start a regular exercise program, both aerobic and resistance exercises • Schedule exercise as an appointment in your daily planner
  21. 21. Mental attitude • Recognize that you are not perfect and that lapses will occur • Deal positively with your lapse; put it behind you and get back on your program • Put reminders on the refrigerator door at home or on your telephone at work • Reward yourself for sticking to your plans
  22. 22. Weight maintenance • Maintaining your new healthy body weight is the key • Lifelong commitment to healthy diet and exercise behaviors is needed • Prevent a lapse from becoming a relapse – Injury can curtail exercise – Have alternative exercises you can do • National Weight Control Registry – Maintained weight loss for at least 2 years
  23. 23. 2. Dietary Modifications • To lose weight, the key component is Calories – One needs to consume fewer Calories than one expends
  24. 24. How can I determine the number of Calories needed in a diet to lose weight? • First, calculate how many Calories (C) you need daily to maintain your current body weight • Second, estimate how much weight you want to lose each week. • Example: – 35-year old sedentary woman needs 1,820 C to maintain current body weight at 140 pounds – To lose 1 pound/week would require a 500 C daily deficit – 1 pound of fat = 3,500 Calories; 3,500 ÷ 7 = 500 C – 1,830 ― 500 = 1,330 C day diet
  25. 25. Why does a person usually lose the most weight during the first week on a reducing diet? • The goal is to lose body fat, not muscle • Weight loss via dieting may come from decreased body stores of carbohydrate and protein and resultant body water losses, which require no Calories – Carbohydrate stores may also bind water – Carbohydrate losses: 300 grams – Associated water losses: 900 grams – Total losses: 1,200 grams (1.2 kg), or 2.6 pounds – Water is also lost with muscle protein losses • Loss of 1 pound occurs with < 3,500 Calorie deficit
  26. 26. Why does it become more difficult to lose weight after several weeks or months on a diet program? 1. Body water losses decrease – Body weight losses are now primarily from body fat, which requires an energy deficit of 3,500 Calories 2. At your lower body weight, you need fewer daily Calories to maintain this weight – Example: Male who needs 18 Calories/lb to maintain weight • 200 lbs x 18 = 3,600 Calories to maintain weight • 180 lbs x 18 = 3,240 Calories to maintain weight 3. To maintain a set rate of weight loss, you would need to cut more Calories from the daily diet
  27. 27. What are the major characteristics of a sound diet for weight control? • Hundreds of diet plans have been proposed – Fast and easy diet plans • No such diet • Most diet plans focus on macronutrients – Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range (AMDR) • Carbohydrate: 45-65% of energy intake • Fat: 20-35% of energy intake • Protein: 10-35% of energy intake

  29. 29. Balanced Weight-loss Diets • Examples of diet plans – Various health profession organizations • Key points of such diet plans – Reduced in Calories yet supply all essential nutrients – Contain a wide variety of foods that appeal to your taste and help prevent hunger between meals; moderate in fat – Suited to your current lifestyle and personal preferences – Provide a slow rate of weight loss; 1-2 pounds/week – A lifelong diet
  30. 30. Weight-loss Diet Plans • Current research – The Calorie content of the diet is the key factor – Diets varying in carbohydrate, fat, or protein are equally effective if caloric content is similar
  31. 31. Is it a good idea to count Calories when attempting to lose body weight? • Counting Calories may be helpful during early stages of a diet • Learning the Food Exchange System and using Food Labels helps you learn the caloric contents and serving sizes of various foods, which can help in the selection of low-Calorie, nutrient dense foods • Keep track of foods rich in fat and sugar
  32. 32. What is the Food Exchange System?
  33. 33. How can I determine the number of Calories I eat daily? • Carry a notebook with you and a reminder, such as a rubber band on your finger • Record your daily food intake, and physical activity, in detail, as soon as possible • Record food intake over a 3-7 day period of time which represents your normal dietary habits • Use the Food Exchange System or Nutrition Facts on food labels to record serving size and Calories • Use measuring devices, such as a measured cup • Learn to estimate portion sizes
  34. 34. Determining Caloric Intake • Eating out – Fast-food restaurants • Nutrition fact sheets • See Appendix F – Other restaurants • Use PDA or cell phone • Email • Receive response with Calorie, fat, and carbohydrate content
  35. 35. Determining Caloric Intake • Enter food record into MyPyramid dietary analysis program • You may keep a record of your caloric (energy) intake over the course of a year
  36. 36. What are some general guidelines I can use in the selection and preparation of foods to promote weight loss or maintain a healthy body weight? • Consumer Reports study of 32,000 dieters who lost weight and kept it off – The National Weight Control Registry • No specific plan but used sensible strategies – Cut portion sizes – Eat fewer Calories from fat and sugar – Eat healthier carbohydrates, fats, and proteins
