In this project, my class and I learned about eating healthily and taking care of our bodies. We touched on the topics of eating disorders too! I learned how important it is to eat fruits and vegetables and to balance your meals. I plan on focusing on keeping my body healthy and ready for swim. At some practices I realized I was tired and not feeling well, and that was because I was not eating healthy foods. I wasn’t taking care of my body, which backfired. My swim times went up, and I wasn’t performing my best. Since then, I have started eating more foods that are healthy and good for your body.
In my diet, I had 317.5 grams of fats, 252 grams of proteins, and 605.8 grams of carbohydrates. These amounts can differ between people. The difference happens because not everyone eats the same about of food and the same types of food. Every day you need to eat something from each food group. For fruits and vegetables, you have to eat 3 to 5 cups of each. For grains its 6 ounces, and 46 grams of protein foods. 2 to 3 servings of dairy and 5 teaspoons of oil. Some examples of foods in these food groups are (in order of the groups listed above): pineapple, carrots, cereal, ribs, milk, and coconut oil.
I plan on eating better and healthier starting now to help my body grow correctly. I will improve my eating habits, and eat at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, not snacking all the time, or eating one meal a day. I will eat the proper amount of food and not over eat to the point where I cannot even move. My eating habits will improve, and so will my health.
