According to the article “Achieving a Healthful Digital Diet”, parents should balance the limitation of using digital devices for their kids. An expert suggested that parents should not provide children with screens to quiet them up. The article says that, the digital use for children is basically used for entertainment. There should be a balanced diet for the young people between entertainment use and educational use. It is also important to limit multitasking while studying. Multitasking is not helpful at all, because it prevents young people from being focused. Finally, one expert suggests that young kids shouldn’t be given smartphones just to keep them quiet, and even elder ones should just be given simple phones. The most significant idea of this passage is that digital use for entertainment is causing many problems for children’s education. Children are obsessed by the screen nowadays. For instance, when my little four year old nephew starts making noise at home, my sister give him the iPad to play with games so he can quiet up. He likes to play video games and watch videos from YouTube. If my sister doesn’t give him the iPad he would make a lot of noise which is not good for neighborhoods around us. I think my sister should find a different way to stop him from making noise not just by handing him the iPad. However, parents should have big role to prevent their children from using screens for entertainment. Children should be more focused on education. The author makes a great point that young kids shouldn’t be given smartphones to keep them quiet. Another problem in today’s society for kids is multitasking. Multitasking should be limited while studying because it can bring distraction. Although, lately I have noticed that when I start to study while I have my phone next to me, it takes more time for me to finish that task than when I have my phone…...

...Introduction: Insulin resistance is associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), cardiovascular disease (CVD), both independently and in association with the metabolic syndrome. Impaired insulin sensitivity has been documented in those known to be at risk for diabetes, such as normoglycemic first-degree relatives of people of T2DM, and women with history of gestational diabetes. Although present in most people who developed T2DM, insulin resistance is generally present for many years before changes in blood glucose concentrations are evident. Despite possible influences from genetic and perinatal factors, diet and physical activity are likely to have greater and overriding influence in generation of the metabolic syndrome and T2DM. Dietary intakes of vegetable fat, polyunsaturated fatty acid, dietary fiber (particularly cereal fiber), magnesium, and caffeine are significantly inversely correlated and intakes of trans fatty acid and heme-iron, glycemic index, and glycemic load are significantly positively correlated with the incidence of type 2 diabetes (Murakami K et al J Nutr Sci Vitaminol (Tokyo) 2005; 51:292-310). Studies have shown a significantly decreased risk for T2DM with the higher consumption of grain (particularly whole grain), and significantly increased risk with processed meat consumption (J Nutr Sci Vitaminol (Tokyo) 2005; 51:292-310). Increased obesity is associated with insulin resistance. Other important factors contributing to insulin resistance......

...Natural Weight Loss and Diet Pills Taking diet pills could bring immediate results; however, eating healthy foods and exercising regularly is the best way to lose weight. The body can maintain its ideal weight when it is focused by a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle consists of eating nutritional foods as well as exercising regularly. Developing a new style of eating will show that food preferences will slowly change when high sugar and high fat snacks are cut out; cravings will go away in time. The body needs healthy food to function properly. Choosing foods from the four main food groups can be a guide for creating balanced and nutritional meals. By choosing to eat healthy, there is more room for enjoyment. Instead of the typical three meals a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), a person can eat four to five small proportional meals each day. The weight gain and loss will be controlled as long as the person does their homework. Counting the calorie food intake is necessary to be sure that a person consumes 1,200 to 2,000 calories a day. Drinking six to eight glasses of water a day and a large glass of water with meals as well as after a meal can help control appetites and metabolize fat. The day should begin with a healthy breakfast. This consists of foods such as eggs, which contain protein, orange juice that has vitamin C, and one slice of toast to give the body fiber. To help with hunger building up, try eating about two snacks between meals. However, it is......

The College Student’s Perception of Healthful Eating

...The College Student’s Perception of Healthful Eating Abstract Current research suggests college students have fluctuating eating patterns and are confused about what constitutes a healthful diet. The purpose of this study was to identify the sources by which college students receive nutritional information and what constitutes the best dietary plan for maintaining a healthful lifestyle. The survey instrument used in this study measured the perceptions of college students about their practices in healthful eating and the sources they consulted to receive healthful eating information. It aligned with research that suggests college students choose to consult peers and the Internet for nutritional information over the consultation of a professional. The survey also suggested that college students understand fast food to be contradictory to a healthful lifestyle and choose to minimize their carbohydrate intake but are confused about the best dietary plan to maintain a healthful lifestyle. The results indicate that college students consult their peers and the internet over a professional with regards to healthful eating and that professionals in nutrition should find creative ways to demonstrate proper nutritional habits through the use of peer teaching and through avenues such as the Internet. Introduction Current college students and twenty-first century adults assimilate a wide spectrum of opinions on what determines if a person is healthy or not. Keeling’s research......

Fad Diets

...Fa"Fad diet" is a term of popular media, not science. Some so-called fad diets may make pseudo-scientific claims. According to one definition, fad diets claim to be scientific but do not follow the scientific method in establishing their validity. What is a fad diet? There are many different definitions of what a fad diet consists of. One definition is any weight loss plan that quickly gains popularity and may become unpopular just as quick. A more specific definition is any weight loss program or aid that promises to produce dramatic weight loss in a very short amount of time. Each type of fad diet varies in the amount of food that is restricted and what types of foods may be restricted. Are fad diets healthy? The basis of these diets is usually a very restricted diet that may even eliminate certain food groups all together. Research has shown that in order to obtain the amount of nutrients our body needs on a daily basis we must consume a balanced and varied diet. Fad diets do not allow consumers to eat a well-balanced diet in most cases which causes the lack of nutrients to the body. In particular, the diets that eliminate certain foods from a person’s diet completely put the person at risk for nutrient deficiencies. Many of the diet authors will suggest that consumers take daily supplements to make up for the lost nutrients; however supplements do not provide all the plant chemicals and nutrients that our bodies need to function properly. Another risk of these......

...The Paleo Diet The Paleo Diet or Paleolithic Diet is referred to as the Caveman Diet, the Stone-age Diet, and the Hunter-Gatherer Diet. It is not about tearing chunks of meat off animals. It is about type of foods that are eaten. The Paleo Diet is the healthiest way a person can eat because it is the only nutritional approach that works to help stay lean, strong and energetic. Researchers indicate that the modern diet which is full of refined foods, trans fats and sugar cause diseases such as cancer, obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and infertility. Scientific research studies show that diets rich in Omega-3 and Monounsaturated fats will reduce these diseases dramatically. Some of these foods include lean proteins for strong muscles and healthy bones and it satisfies hunger between meals. Fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants decrease the development of degenerative diseases. Also, healthy fats from nuts, seeds, olive oil and grass fed meats reduce these diseases (Wolf, 2014). The purpose of the Paleo Diet is to eat a low sugar diet to avoid inflammation. High sugar and high starchy foods turn into sugar and produces inflammation. Cells can absorb so much sugar before becoming inflamed and hormones control blood sugar so a person will not pass out (miraclenoodle.com, 2014). The fact that the Paleo Diet delivers the best results is the fact that most people needs. It improves blood lipids, weight loss and reducing pain is......

Diet

...Many diets have been developed to help people lose weight. However, many of these diets were developed without the input of dieticians or doctors, which makes them potentially dangerous. Understanding the pros and cons of a diet are vital to increasing the chances of success. One of the most popular diets in the last ten years is known as the South Beach diet, developed by Dr. Arthur Agatston. Unlike many competing diets, a famous cardiologist developed the South Beach diet. His medical training helped him develop a diet that follows medical guidelines and is not extremely dangerous if followed accurately. The diet requires the person to eat high-fiber, low-glycemic carbohydrates, unsaturated fats, and lean protein. His method categorizes carbohydrates and fats as good or bad, based on how much the food will affect weight. Unlike other diets, it does not restrict calorie intake. However, it does include an exercise program, which works to burn off existing calories. While many people promote the South Beach diet, it is not considered to be side effect free. The first stage of the diet aims for rapid weight loss by cutting water weight. The change in weight due to the loss of water can throw off the electrolyte balance and severely dehydrate the person. Other critics believe that the lack of dietary fiber, which is known to aid in weight loss, can have a negative affect on the body. Also, certain doctors believe that the glycemic index, on which the diet is based, is not...

The risk from careless eating would be heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and obesity. Healthy eating is important to us because, our bodies need the nourishment that we can supply on a daily basis to remain active and achieve our goals.

I will use a variety of well known sources for my information. This information should be easy to follow with some planning ahead for the change to come in your life. Some of the best information would be to try and eat three balanced meals a day. This does not mean that you have to over indulge of course although you should never skip meals. The first thing is the food pyramid which goes over the food chain. This would be the foods are bodies need on a daily basis to function on normal routines. The pyramid gives us an idea of some foods to choose from. You should have grains, vegetables, fruits, milk and dairy, meat and beans, oils. When you look at the pyramid site you can choose which category of foods you need help in. The site has......

...Diet and Nutrition SCI/220 July 27, 2011 Diet and Nutrition The idea of diet and nutrition comes from the general desire of people wanting to be as healthy as possible. To that end the value of food has come to be measured in its nutritional value. We as a people have determined through research that the nutrients of certain types of foods can provide health and nutritional benefits. Our food and drug administration have established the amounts of vitamins and nutrients we need to sustain a healthy lifestyle and have determined that our body’s daily nutritional needs are satisfied by certain amounts and types of foods. For those who do not eat a healthy diet, a vitamin supplement has become vital and needed to meet their bodies’ daily need for nutrition. Finally, I will be doing a comparison of my diet to the sample profile of Kelly Watson to see how healthful I am eating. Keeping a healthy diet can sometimes be difficult but developing an understanding of the calories intake, portion size, and the nutrients the body acquires can be a manageable education. However, the regrettable understanding of the nutritional content of food is often poor. For example, research shows that consumers drastically underestimate the calorie content of restaurant foods, by as much as 55%, and that despite having awareness of their eating habits, the total calorie consumption is usually underestimated on a daily basis. Furthermore, consumers typically underestimate the extent......

Whole-grain foods are also rich in fiber and can be very filling which will make it easier for one to maintain a healthy weight. Try to eat fish twice a week “Choose lean cuts of meat, low fat dairy, and use fats sparingly. One can have some dessert occasionally; just do not have a large serving. Use herbs to add flavor to foods instead of salt. One also needs to determine how many calories one should consume each day to stay healthy but also that will allow one to reduce or maintain a proper weight. It is recommended that women consume 1500 calories a day and men consume 2000 calories a day, these amounts may vary; consult a doctor to know for sure what would be right for......

...family practices American traditions. I don’t feel as though the English Cultural identity is as unifying as many other ethnicities. This is not intended to down my culture or my heritage, I am just trying to say that English people do not tend to claim their “homeland” the way many other ethnicities do. Many people of other ethnicities have traditions be it festivals, food, a dialect or type of clothing. Many ethnicities come to America and still try to carry on their cultural traditions, but the English culture and traditions are similar enough to America’s that it almost seems like the same thing. I suppose that is reasonable since- again – the English had a big hand in colonizing this country. References Mintz, S. (2007). Digital History.
