Food Log Essay

966 words - 4 pages

Nutrients are substances that are required for our body in order to grow and become healthy. The nutrients in our food are classified as proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and fibers. Proteins are found in food like cereals, bread, milk, and cheese, which provide growth and repair parts of our body. Fats can be found in margarine, butter, cheese, and snack foods. They act as a layer to keep out the cold and to protect us against injuries, but consuming too much isn’t healthy for the body. Carbohydrates can be found in breads, rice, and pasta, and is one of the sources that provide us with energy. During the five days of food log, the worst nutritionally food I consumed was 2 slices of cheese pizza. The pizza contains the most amounts of fat, carbohydrate, sodium, cholesterol, calcium, and iron. Fat in pizza is saturated, meaning it can raise the level of cholesterol in the blood which can increase the chance of having heart diseases. It’s also a primary risk factor of cardiovascular diseases, which is found to be that half of all men and a third of women will get at a time in their life. On the other hand, the best food nutritionally was Macaroni and tomato sauce. It contains macaroni, shrimps, corn, fres tomato, tomato sauce, mushrooms, and fish. This meal is complete, meaning it has all the nutrients my body requires in a meal, which is protein from fish and shrimps, fats from the oil being used, carbohydrates form the macaroni, and vitamins, minerals, and fibers from tomatoes and corns. Eating tomatoes, even though it’s only a part of the meal, is a healthy choice because it wards of cancer, especially lung and stomach cancer. Furthermore, tomatoes reduce the risk of heart diseases because they contain niacin, folate, and vitamin B6, which is associated with decreasing the risk.

Your body sees calories as energy that produces heat, and the heat energy is what fuels our body, just like gasoline fueling a car. The calories balance of your diet is a factor that determines your overall health, which means that the calories you consume should match the calories you expend. If you consume more than you burn, it could lead to unwanted weight gaining, but if you burn more than you consume, you could lose your body mass. The three micronutrients are fat, protein, and carbohydrate. Over the five days, the meal which contains the most calories is Pad Thai. Pad Thai contains 430 calories, mostly coming from carbohydrate. The meal which contains the least calories is boil rice and alfalfa sprout, which contains only 100 calories; mostly coming from carbohydrate, again. As the calories expended, the activity that...
