Nutrition: Key Notes:  Protein is used to develop and repair bone, muscle, skin and blood cells and is found as a nutrient through the food you consume. o Amino acids that contain nitrogen are the “building blocks” of proteins o Complete proteins are those that contain all nine essential amino acids.  The RDA stands for the recommended average daily intake of a certain nutrient at a level considered healthy. o The recommended daily amount of fiber consumption for adults is 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men.  Fiber protects against obesity, colon, rectal cancers, and heart disease. o About 50-70 percent of an adult’s body weight is water.  Calcium mainly comes from milk, dairy products, and specific green vegetable and is needed for your body to maintain health.  Vitamin D is fat-soluble but can also produce negative side effects if in excess. o A vitamin D deficiency can increase the risk for osteoporosis, breast and prostate cancer, and heart disease and stroke. o Fat-soluble vitamins are not good in large amounts because they cannot be excreted in urine and could build up in the liver.  HDL is a cholesterol that transports cholesterol to the liver for removal. o The consumption of a lot of trans fatty acids could lead to a higher risk of coronary heart disease. o Triglycerides make up 95% of total body fat.  The body converts glucose into energy.  Antioxidants produce enzymes, a type of protein that can destroy free radicals.  Healthful diets should not be calorie-dense because too much calories do not allow the body to function in a healthy manner.  Functional foods are foods that provide more health benefits than those that just provide basic nutrition. o The best way to obtain all the nutrients necessary is to eat a variety of foods.  MyPlate plan should not include full-fat dairy products due to their tendency to be unhealthy for the body.  Appetite is defined as the psychological desire for food. o Portion is defined as the amount of food you consciously decide to eat at a certain time. o Empty calories are those that have no significant nutritional value. o Lacto-vegetarians only consume dairy products but no other animal products.  Anemia is caused by the body inability to produce hemoglobin.
