Presentation Transcript

The sign is often modified by using both hands alternately and a bit larger movement that moves past the mouth and down a short distance as if showing the food going down the esophagus.


CALORIES: In 1890, the USDA appropriated the term "calorie" for a report on nutrition. A calorie was defined as the unit of heat required to raise 1 gram of water 1 degree Celsius.

PROTEIN: The sign for "protein" is to circle a "P" handshape. In some contexts some people may choose to sign MEAT.

FAT:  There is a version of the sign "FAT" that means overweight. When discussing "fat" as a food type I recommend you spell just spell: F-A-T.


METABOLISM: The sign for "metabolism" is done by holding both hands in "5"-handshapes palm back in front of the chest. Move the hands down, out to the side, up, and back in toward the center a bit.

Memory aide: Think of the sign for metabolism as representing the movement of blood around inside of your body.
But when discussing nutrition and diet I prefer to apply the "BURNING" sign for the concept of “burning calories."

"Energy that we use for “shipping and handling” (processing) of fuels in our body is known as the thermogenic effect of food and is equal to approximately 10% of daily caloric intake.

For every 100 carbohydrate calories you consume, your body expends 5 to 10 in absorption and metabolism.
For every 100 calories of protein calories you consume, your body needs 20 to 30 for absorption and metabolism."
If you cut 500 calories from your typical diet each day, you will lose about 1 pound a week (500 calories times 7 days = 3,500 calories).

High energy density means that there are a lot of calories in a little food. Low energy density means there are few calories in a lot of food."

Your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is responsible for approximately 60 to 70% of your total energy expenditure.

"Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) have found that eating five or more servings of white rice per week was associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.

In contrast, eating two or more servings of brown rice per week was associated with a lower risk of the disease.

Replacing 50 grams of white rice (just one third of a typical daily serving) with the same amount of brown rice would lower risk of type 2 diabetes by 16%.

The same replacement (of white rice) with other whole grains, such as whole wheat and barley, was associated with a 36% reduced risk."
Greenland Eskimos, prior to the 1980s had perhaps the lowest prevalence of both heart disease and diabetes on the planet.
Carbohydrate is stored in your muscles and liver as glycogen.Each gram of carbohydrate is stored with about 3 grams of water.
