The with other foods out of the 5

The key to eating healthy is to enjoy the variety of foods from each of the Five Food Groups. In this project, I’m going to explain how to change your food diet to a healthier and more nutritious one.  5 Food GroupsThe key to healthy life is to enjoy a variety of products from the 5 food groups.The 5 food groups are:Dairy FruitsGrain (cereal) foodsLean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seedsVegetables, legumes and beansThe Function of Water Water is one of the few vital needs of human beings and thought people can survive a long time without food, we can only survive a day or two without water. The human body contains from 55% to 77% water, depending on your body size. To function properly, your body needs minimum 2 liters (6 to 8 glasses) per day to stay hydrated; the exact amount depends on the level of activity, temperature, humidity, and other factors. After passing through your stomach, water enters the small intestine and the rest goes to the colon. After that, it goes into your bloodstream and then it arrives into your cells. Waste products are then removed through urines. The main functions of water are: Cell life Chemical reactionsBody temperature regulation?Energy Needed a Day/Dietary AdviceCalories requirement (in kilocalories) for each gender and age group at three levels of physical activity.Foods and drinks to eatChoose mostly whole foods or minimally-processed foods. They are the best choices because they still have most of their original value and the amount of fat, sugar and/or salt added to them is minimal. Foods in the five foods groups are considered core (basic) foods as they should be the main foods in your diet. You can eat them individually, but you can also combine them with other foods out of the 5 food groups. Also choosing water as your main drink is good because water has 0 calories and helps you stay hydrated.Foods and drinks to limitThere are of course foods and drinks that are not as healthy as the foods in the 5 food groups. They are not a part of your healthy diet. So the lesser you take, the healthier you are. Examples include:sweet biscuits, desserts and other sweets processed meats, sausages and commercial burgersmeat pies and other pastrieschips, fried foods, crisps and other fatty and/or salty snackscream and buttersoft drinks and sports drinksalcoholic drinksThese foods and drinks have a lot of calories, little to none vitamins/minerals, have a lot of added sugar/salt/alcohol and have a lot of fat. The recommended amount is one serve per day approximately 600kJ.This is my dietary advice for the food intake for one day: BMI (Body Mass Index) Body Mass Index is a measurement that allows to calculate the correspondence between a person’s weight and its height and thus indirectly assess whether the mass is underweight, normal or overweight. The BMI is calculated by the formula: Metric BMI FormulaBMI = weight (kg) : height² (m²)Imperial BMI FormulaBMI = weight (lb) : height² (in²) • 703 “De Eetmeter” Overview*I drink about 2 liters of water every day ConclusionIn conclusion the healthier you eat, the stronger is your body. Stick to your healthy diet and you will achieve your goals of loosing weight or just being healthier in no time. Avoid a lot of sugar, salt and fat, try to be active and move more. Candy and crisps are tasty, but are extremely unhealthy. In the same time you can create your own healthy and tasty dishes. Health is important.
