Proteins: We require 10-15% Energy daily requirement* 0.8g per kg/bw (when inactive) and 1-2g per kg/bw ( when active) These help in building our Cells, Muscles,
Organs, Blood, Nervous system, and Bones

*Depends on Metabolic Demands, Pregnancy, lactation, growth, goals.

Adding protein to a meal increases feelings of fullness and lowers the GI of the food ingested.

Eating healthy Carbohydrates

~45-65% daily requirement


a.ka. Refined sugars e.g. sweets, crisps, cookies

Preferred option for carb intake due to being an efficient energy source, readily used. Body stores are depleted quickly so need to be replaced frequently Include: bread, pasta, potatoes contain other useful nutrients such as fibre

Carbohydrates- cont

Soluble fibres
Fruits, Oats, barley, wheat, vegetables

Insoluble fibres
Wheat, vegetables, many grain products

-Affect Glucose and Fat absorption -Positive effect on gut health -Effect on hunger feeling

-Mechanical/Bulking effect -Aid intestinal transit

Food energy measured in calories. A calorie is not a component of food. 1g Protein = 4 calories 1g CHO = 4 calories 1g fat = 9 calories 1 g alcohol = 7 calories (alcohol is not a nutrient) This means that the more fats and alcohol you take, and become inactive, the more calories you store and the more you get fat

Calcium: It helps in building of strong bones, healthy teeth, for chomping on tasty food. Because the body cannot manufacture calcium, you must eat calcium in your daily diet to replace the amounts that are constantly lost. Calcium is also used in muscle contraction, blood clotting, and maintenance of cell membranes Magnesium: is one of the complex minerals that make up the bone system and should be balanced with calcium Deficiency Symptoms of calcium: The symptoms of calcium deficiency are: Bowlegs, Pigeon Breast, and Knock-knees of children Cramp pains in legs Delay in sitting up, Crawling and Walking of babies Heart becomes irregular Nerves become extremely irritable Poor sleep disorder Weakness in the bones Deficiency Diseases of calcium: Arthritis, High Blood Pressure, Osteoporosis


Potasium Potassium is the other most abundant mineral in the body and is considered an electrolyte. Potassium keeps your muscles and nervous system working properly. Important for: Regulates heartbeat , Maintains fluid balance , Helps muscles contract , Helps in lower blood pressure, Dispose of body wastes, Reduces pain of arthritis Potassium Deficiency Diseases: Fatigue, Cramping legs, Muscle weakness, slow reflexes, Acne, Dry skin, Mood changes, Irregular heartbeat. Potassium Deficiency Symptoms: Weakness, Scarring of heart muscle, Irregular heartbeat or heart failure, Hypertrophy of kidneys, Paralysis of muscle, Retarded bone growth Iron: Necessary for red blood cell formation and required for transport of oxygen throughout the body. Deficiency symptoms include listlessness, fatigue and palpitation

Sulfur: Needed for structure of most protein, including muscles and hair. Critical role in liver detoxification. Sodium: Plays a major role in the distribution of water in the body, It is also concerned with the maintenance of fluid volume in the vessels and tissues. Zinc: For proper utilization of calcium and magnesium in cell function Helps to promote wound healing and in optimizing the immune defense system. Even marginal zinc deficiencies in teenagers can result in growth and developmental retardations. Important for insulin activity Normal taste Usage of vitamin A Skins normal oil gland function (acne prevention) Prevention of sterility in some instances. Checking your nails to see if there is a white spot will show if you are deficient in zinc.

How Resistance Training helps in Health and Fitness

Resistance training develops our musculoskeletal system. This system houses our CNS, PNS, internal organs and tissue. It is the framework and structure that allows us to function and live. Benefits of resistance training: Improved posture, structure, performance, strength, speed, power, range of movement, lean muscle mass and coordination. The benefits of resistance training occur as it: Stimulates bone formation, stimulates muscular adaptations reducing stress, fatigue, improves digestion, keeps us alert. stimulates connective tissue adaptations

How Resistance Training helps in Health and Fitness

Increased Strength- function, structure, posture Increased Muscle Mass- function, aesthetics, metabolic effects help stimulate Muscle Adaptations For Strength- Do carry High loads, do few repetitions, full recovery periods For Muscle Size Do carry Moderate loads, high volumes, short to moderate rest periods( e.g. 30 120 seconds intervals) For Muscular Endurance with Low intensity, high volume, little recovery allowed( meaning, do this for a prolonged period of time)

How Resistance Training helps in Health and Fitness

Benefits of compound exercises over isolation: Increased hormone secretion Improved overall strength and function Increased lean muscle mass Improved bone and connective tissue strength Higher Metabolic cost (Fitness and Fat burning abilities) Time effective
