Adequate nutrition and a proper exercise plan can be major components in a person’s health and happiness. I have balanced my individual nutritional need with physical activity for several years. Though, I never realized it this was forming habits that lead to a plan for maintain healthy weight and preventing disease. While my grandfather was alive, he did not pay particular close attention to his exercise and eating habits, though it did not contribute to his death, he did develop diabetes. My father has fallen into the same footsteps as my grandfather, and he too has diabetes.
These signs lead me to believe that I too may have a predisposition to diabetes, it is important to keep this life plan and constantly modify elements of the plan as I age to keep in good health, especially with my family history. I may also have additional nutrition problems associated with my absolute dislike of green vegetables. By eating very little of these items I am lowering the amount of essential vitamins that my body needs.

Diabetes “is a condition in which the body either does not produce enough, or does not properly respond to, insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas. Insulin enables cells to absorb glucose in order to turn it into energy. This causes glucose to accumulate in the blood, leading to various potential complications” (Wikipedia, 2009).

The food I consume affects my life in serious and immediate ways. Throughout this course I have learned various ways to help improve my dieting and better my overall health with different foods, ways of cooking foods, and supplements to help provide nutrients my body needs. Having Crohn’s disease can often make eating fruits and vegetable very painful. Although I have a chronic illness, I plan to find a pain free way to incorporate more fruits, vegetables, and exercise to provide my body with the total nutrients it needs. Changes/No Changes From My Original Healthy Eating Plan My previous eating habits consist of a lot of pasta, meats, and bread because they do well with my digestive system. I have currently added more dairy and leafy vegetables to supplement my areas of deficiency. After completing the Food Tracker a second time I was still very deficient in my amount of fruit intake. Even with my adjustments I am still under my recommended calorie intake. In fact my total average calorie intake went down from 2906 to 2738 for a three day period. My results were still over the limit in saturated fat, and under the limit in magnesium, potassium, and several vitamins. These results are the...

... SCI/241 Nutrition Principles of Economics By Maggy Ostorga March 8, 2013 Instructor: Larisa Wilson Our bodies are very much like fine-tuned machines and according to The Food Label and You video, the food you eat is the fuel that keeps you running. Therefore it is important to ensure that we are providing our bodies with the right nutrients as well as the appropriate amounts. To understand what amount and what type of nutrients you consume is to read the labels. Food labels are provided on all consumable goods to provide us with the products nutritional values. The labels are the guides we need to keep our machines in tiptop shape. Nutritional values can be found on the Nutrition label. To begin one must first understand what constitutes a serving size. Many times a packet contains more than one serving for instance, a box of cereal, a can of soup, or a liter of soda. Once a serving size has been determined one can begin to evaluate calories and daily values. If the contents indicate 18% of daily values then one future meal’s daily values can be adjusted not to exceed totally daily values of 100%. Daily values should also be applied in the vitamin section of the Nutrition label. There is rule called 5/20 which helps us understand whether the foods contents have enough of the nutrients we require. Let’s say the person is on a high protein diet. A serving of peanut butter is 9% of total daily value. Because it is over 5% it is considered to be...

Deployment Scenario The best deployment scenario for this particular situation would be the infrastructure setup. This type of networking would allow the system to utilize both the wireless and wired components. This would also enable the network to utilize the WLAN for the majority of its networking needs, while still having the capability to merge a LAN into this WLAN design if needed. Deployment Scenario Rationale I went with the infrastructure networking mode due to the physical limitations within the Customer Service Call Center’s floor design. The Call Centers floor plan would allow the wireless access points to communicate with other wireless access points that are out of wireless coverage reach. For areas that are not considered mobile or require a higher level of security, the use of a wired connection can be used; while still allowing the wireless portion of the network to connect to the wired segment. What this means is, it provides a way for the wireless access points to communicate with the rest of the network, which is vital for connecting multiple wireless access points, as well as connecting a WLAN to a LAN if needed or requested. Hardware Components • Component Name: Access Point o Rationale for using component: The use of five wireless access points are...

Personalized Nutrition and Exercise Plan

...Personalized Nutrition and Exercise Plan The health and nutritional problems that I was experiencing before I started this class were, not eating the proper foods, especially for my age and medical condition. I have never had a weight problem, but I did have a problem with not eating enough meals throughout the day. In going over the plan that I need to implicate, I need to stay aware of foods that could raise my blood pressure. When I found out that I had high blood pressure, I drastically reduced my sodium intake but at the same time, I did not incorporate any type of exercise. Having high blood pressure sometimes is a little scary, when I think I am doing everything right, I will sometimes get a headache that may last two or three days. I can never come up with a reason why because I take my medication daily but, I feel that it maybe foods that I am unconsciously eating foods that are not good for me. I know I have to be very careful because, a year and a half ago, I suffered from a mini stroke, which I feel not only came from my diet but from stress. I always made it a point to read the labels before I purchased foods looking for how much fat it contained, not realizing that I should have really been looking at this sodium intake and a reasonable amount of fat intake which can boost energy. The problems that I must target are; eating at least three balanced meals a day, forming an exercise program that will help me maintain my weight and energy level. There...

...Eating Healthy, Nutrition and Exercise Plan Final Project Jayme A. Perales SCI/241 September 15, 2013 Venessa Lee Eating Healthy, Nutrition and Exercise Plan Final Project Over the past nine weeks we have learned what it takes for our bodies to become healthy and maintain that level of healthiness. Our body needs a lot more then exercise to be considered healthy. There are six macro nutrients that we must include in our diet on a daily basis; protein, carbohydrates, lipids, water, vitamins and minerals. These six nutrients will provide energy for our body to perform its daily functions ("What Is A Nutrient?", 2013).. Being physically fit and healthy means that we must incorporate a well-balanced diet that includes all nutrients and daily exercise regimen, if we are missing a piece of the puzzle we will be off balanced causing some sort of negativity in our life. Diet plays a major role in the outcome of living a healthier lifestyle. Whatever we chose to consume on a daily basis will definitely affect our weight and overall health eventually. Depending on the size of individual, sex and amount of physical activity will reflect how many calories a person should intake to function properly. I am a 29 year old man, who is pretty active in the gym and recreational sports so the tracker suggested a 2800 calorie per day diet. I would never come close to the suggested calories per day because I am a bariatric patient. I normally consume around 1,000 to 1,300 calories...

Personalized Nutrition and Exercise Plan

...Personalized Nutrition and Exercise Plan SCI/241 Personalized Nutrition and Exercise Plan High cholesterol and obesity are two of my main concerns as far as my current and possibly future health problems if I do not do something about it. According to the American Heart Association (2011), about 75% of blood cholesterol is produced by the liver and 25% is from foods we ingest. High cholesterol can be caused by unhealthy eating due to the consumption of too many animal foods or can be hereditary. When cholesterol becomes too high you're at greater risk of having a heart attack or stroke due to cholesterol that builds up and starts blocking arteries. I have been struggling with obesity for many years now and I have just recently found out that my cholesterol is high. If I do not get my obesity under control I will not only have problems with my cholesterol but I will also become at risk for other problems such as diabetes, heart attack and even cancer. There are many lifestyle changes that I must make in order to get my cholesterol and obesity under control. In order to do this I must make changes in my diet and exercise routine. There are several nutritional goals that I would like to do for myself in order to take the reins of my obesity and high cholesterol. My first nutritional goal is to reduce the amount of cholesterol I take in. In order to do this I will have to read labels and check the amount of cholesterol that is in the food I'm buying. I recently bought...

Personalized Nutrition and Exercise Plan

...Personalized Nutrition and Exercise Plan Overweight, is the first word I believe is used to describe me when people first see me. Funny, is the first word used by people to describe me after getting to know me and I learned obese is how the professionals classify me and the “funny- fat girl” is how I perceive myself. I am 43 years old, five feet, four inches tall and recently had a full hysterectomy. I am not what would be described as morbidly obese but I am considered obese at 30 pounds over the ideal weight for my age and height according to the standard bmi calculators. Heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, and osteoporosis are some of the health risks associated with being overweight (WebMd, 2011), post- hysterectomy surgery, and my family history. Living a healthy lifestyle through a well-balanced diet and exercise plan will help deter these and other health risks and helps change my own self-perception of who I am and how I am perceived by others. Setting reachable goals will aide in creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The goals I have set for myself include: create a list of priorities with myself as first on the list, increase activity levels in increments of five minutes per-month, create, maintain and execute a well-balanced meal plan each week, lose five pounds a month to lower potential health risks, increase water intake and continue education about nutritional needs at different stages of life. To meet the goals I have...

Nutrition Final-Personalized Plan

...Personalized Nutrition & Exercise Plan Many people are unfortunate to experience health problems associated with nutrition. They may also have health problems due to hereditary circumstances. The main problem worldwide seems to be the lack of nutrition people are getting on a daily basis. Nutrition is the key to living a healthy life. Eating the right foods and participating in physical activities can actually help a person expand their life span. Many of the health problems may be addressed with the help of a dietician or general knowledge of what your body needs. I have sadly been struggling with weight issues for a few years now and have learned some new things that can change my life. The first concern of mine is the fact that I am under the age of thirty five years old. I have given birth three times and became overweight each time. My daily life has lacked the right amount of physical activity. I also have been on a dieting roller coaster for about five years. Many of the diets I followed were fad based such as the low carbohydrate diet. This was a diet where I basically eliminated carbohydrates from my body but replaced those foods with higher fat foods such as large amounts of red meat and cheese. I did lose weight but gained it all back within two years and then some. These fad diets I am talking about have affected many people. They think a certain food is making them fat such as foods that contain carbohydrates. Sadly we all put ourselves at risk of other...

Reflections on Nutrition Sci 241 Week9

...Reflections on Nutrition SCI/241 4/4/2011 Summer Groff Week 9 Checkpoint Reflecting on what I have studied so far on nutrition, using my assignments completed up until this point is that I have come to the knowledge of how the human body works from the moment food enters the mouth through digestion and coming out as waste. I have also obtained knowledge about how the body changes through aging, and how diet and exercise can actually help the body’s digestion and growth process. I have learned through doing research throughout my course on nutrition, which has helped me gained understanding on what to do to stay healthy as I age. The assignment that I enjoyed throughout this class is the three day activity analysis. After completing the analysis I became aware of what I was eating and made me aware that food is the body’s main source of fuel, which means that nutrients in food gives the body cells energy to function. I am now cautious and made changes of what I eat. Making healthy decisions and adding daily exercise to my life style has improved my health. Another assignment I enjoyed was week 5 on dehydration. I learned much about the importance of water and how the body needs water to function adequately. Water washes away and cleanse out toxins, it also assists the cell functioning, and is the primary aid of the ear, nose and throat functioning. Water also bathes the cells in the body and serves as a lubricant; it cleanses both external and internal......

The power point offers a great deal of things to give an assignment a facelift. Making slides with photos, and graphs. However, this entire course has shown me how to take better care of myself, and my family. It is of the most importance to live a healthier life by eating the right foods, and exercising. I did not like the, choose your plate. I feel that I already knew what I needed to do to maintain my weight, and the daily values I must get of certain nutrients. I have never been the type to follow a diet plan, but I do know what is bad for me. I have been eating right, but I am still struggling with high blood pressure and cholesterol issues. My health and my families, is vital to me, and seeing that we each receive a well balanced meal 2-3 times daily to stay energized. When we started this nutrition class, my youngest daughter was learning about the food pyramid as well. We worked on this together, that way I was still interacting with her while doing my school work. My overall experience with science 241, seeing how carbohydrates, vitamins, proteins, and fiber do when eaten the right way opened my eyes to what will happen inside of the body if it receives more or less of the above.

I have taken what I've learned in this class and what I have learned by doing a little research and I was able to personalize a nutrition, diet, and exercise plan for myself. For starters, I will need to take a good look at my current habits and that affect my nutrition and exercise plan. I like to believe I eat pretty healthy, but there is always room in improve. I'm not big on candy or sweets. I also have a hate for milk, so I only drink milk when I eat cereal, and milk is a needed for calcium and vitamin D. I love the sun so I tend to believe I get enough vitamin D from the sun. My diet consist of chicken, salad, vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Since I have an office job and the only time that I have to actually get away is during my lunch hour, so I'm not very active at work, so that kill eight hour of my day right there. I like to ride bikes and take walks, and every now and again I will roller blade. I can honestly say that I haven't been doing too much of any of this, as it's been pretty busy for me.
