Physical health is one of my lowest health components. Drugs and alcohol is something I very much avoid, considering my age. I don't worry about that. But my health with food is a bit of a problem. I usually eat about two times a day, in the morning and when I come home from school. Sometimes I eat three times a day, it depends. But what I eat isn't really healthy. For example, in the morning I eat cereal or a sandwich. That food is supposed to last me until 3:00 pm. Then I come home from school and eat foods like rice with chicken or enchiladas. After that, I usually don't eat anything else. Sometimes food isn't ready yet so I'll wait until 6:00 pm to eat. I also tend to eat a lot of sweets and cookies. With all that food, I'm supposed to

This assignment and the first 4 units of this course will assist me in becoming a healthier person not only personally but also professionally. I have struggled with my diet the past few years, either consuming to much or to little, ultimately eating not very healthy. My goal is to eat from each food group the best I can and to eat the portion sizes that is needed for my body. I am going to try and change my eating habits to create more positive choices for myself. Taking care of myself inside will help in the workforce mentally and physically but also help with my knowledge about healthy eating, I’ll be able to share and teach by example.
Keeping track of your diet can help you prevent a lot of health risks and keep your body up and healthy. Even skipping a simple meal can result in something damaging to your body. This activity helped me learn a lot about my body and what I should be in taking and what I shouldn’t be taking. One of my biggest strengths when is comes to my eating habits is staying persistent with what I eating and how much I eat. For example, I eat breakfast every single morning whereas some people skip breakfast one day then eat breakfast the next. Another strength would be the number of calories I intake daily, although they are under the average amount I’m supposed to be intaking I do keep it at the same level almost every other day. One last strength I have when it comes to my eating habits is I don’t eat unhealthy, yes I do eat some unhealthy things here and there, but I don’t overload myself with unhealthy fattening foods. Although I do have strengths they still aren’t at the best they can be. To improve them I’m going to start keeping a food journal to keep track of all the foods I’m eating daily. This will help me come to an agreement and can stabilize my eating habits to the point where I’m satisfied with what I’m eating and my overall well-being. Keeping track of my diet was so helpful because it made me realize that even the slightest deficiency can
Being healthy consist of staying hydrated and eating healthy and my data shows I maybe ate too much fatty foods. Taking a look at my water consumed is not very good either. Humans are suppose to drink 64oz of water a day, and I didn’t get anywhere near that amount of water in fact i drank exactly half of what I am suppose to drink. My overall conclusion on Monday’s data is i definitely need to improve my diet. The second day wasn’t much better than it was on Monday. Consuming all my calories is a challenge for me because I admit I am a picky eater. Things I ate on Tuesday are substances like pizza, cheese stick, banana muffin, water and chicken enchiladas. As you can tell none of those are considered to be super healthy foods. School lunches don’t exactly consist of healthy foods, but less of unhealthy foods. As most people will say the school lunches are necessarily tasty meals. Tuesday I didn’t get enough calories again because at lunch I will only eat certain things, and those objects don’t contain very many calories. I think that is a huge reason as to why I get hundreds less then I should be getting. I went over on protein and carbohydrates consuming 23 more grams of protein and 12 grams of carbs. My grams of fat are more on Tuesday
I want to start eating healthier this year because i want to be as healthy as can be. I do worry my health and I am now being cautious over what I eat. I do NOT want the risk of any health condition such as diabetes, heart failure, cholesterol, etc. Another reason why I want to start eating healthier is because I have been gaining weight again, now that the soccer season is over. To achieve this goal, I will choose the healthier lunches at school, like a salad. At home I can eat lots of fruit and vegetables. I can also limit the amount the food I eat. I will avoid any junk food and anything with lots of sugar like candy, soda, cookies, etc. The time I eat is also important, which will be no later than 8
After looking at the reports of my "Actual Intakes vs Recommended Intakes" and "Calorie Assessment", almost all the amount of nutrients I consumed did not reach 80 to 110 percent of the recommended level of nutrients intake. In this way, I need to set goals or change my diet to maintain health. For example, my intake of calories was 1,468.07, but the recommended intake of calories was 2,006.03 if I wanted to keep my current weight. According to my 3-day diet reports, I realized that I should eat more foods that contain healthy fats and more vitamins. Due to this, I should consume the food like meat, vegetables, and others. Also, I should be concerned about the macronutrients intake that are the primary nutrients to keep my body healthy.
