1. Caloric intake in today’s American society Derrick Reagan

2. What is caloric intake? • Caloric relates to heat. • Intake – what is taken into the body. • Measure of energy consumed into the body.

3. What do you base it on? • Roughly 2,000 Calories p/day • Height • Weight • Age • Gender • Activity Level

4. Difference for men and women

5. Men’s activity level and intake

6. Women’s activity level and intake

7. What is BMR? • Basal metabolic rate • Min. amount of energy (in calories) that your body requires to function. • Breathing • Breaking down food • Brain activity • Heart pumping

8. Calculating BMR in Men • Formula - 66 + (6.3 x weight in pounds) + (12.9 x height in inches) - (6.8 x age in years) • EX: • 66+(1228.5) + (915.9) – (176.8) = 2033.6 ** My personal BMR **

9. Calculating BMR in Women • Formula - 655 + (4.3 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) - (4.7 x age in years) • EX : • 655+(537.5) + (305.5) – (103.4) = 1394.6 • **Random woman BMR **

10. Now what?! • If you are sedentary : BMR x 20 percent • If you are lightly active: BMR x 30 percent • If you are moderately active (You exercise most days a week.): BMR x 40 percent • If you are very active (5 days a week intensely) BMR x 50 percent • If you are extra active (You do hard labor or are in athletic training.): BMR x 60 percent

11. What Will that formula tell me? • ADD that number to your BMR • Result = Calories allowed p/day while maintaining weight. • If taking in less, you would lose weight. • More, gain weight.

12. Body Mass Index • Body fat based on height and weight. • How do I figure it out?

13. Nutrients and sources of energy • Fats • Carbs • Proteins • Calculate your nutrients

14. Fats • 9 calories per gram • Snacks, butter, chocolate, avocado, nuts • 25-35 % daily intake • Essential fatty acids • Trans-fat • Saturated & unsaturated

15. Carbohydrates • Organic compound consisted of carbon, hydrogen, & oxygen • Bread, grains, pasta • 4 calories per gram • 45-65% of daily intake

16. Proteins • 4 calories per gram • Building blocks made of amino acids • Energy provider, stores energy • 10-20% of daily intake • Meat, milk, poultry, fish, eggs…

17. Recently added Food guide Pyramid

18. My Plate Look at my well balanced plate

19. Nutrition facts Notice serving size Always check for outstanding areas in labels; ie; 86% cholesterol for the DAY!! Always based on 2,000 calorie intake per day.

20. What have we learned? • Try to apply these ideas in everyday life • Grocery shopping • Planning meals • Preparing meals • Regulate and maintain a healthy lifestyle • No garuntees, but if these guidelines are followed results should show
