PE Activity May 4 - 8
All foods have calories and different foods have different amounts of calories. A calorie is the amount of energy, or heat, it takes to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water 1 degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit). Calories are provided by fat, carbohydrate and protein. The number of calories in a food is a measure of how much potential energy that food possesses. A gram of carbohydrates has 4 calories, a gram of protein has 4 calories and a gram of fat has 9 calories. Foods are a compilation of these three building blocks. If you know how many carbohydrates, fats and proteins are in any given food, you can calculate how many calories, or how much energy, that food contains. Your body uses calories as energy. Energy is what fuels our body in the same way that gasoline fuels a car. Human beings need energy to survive—to breathe, move, pump blood—and they acquire this energy from food. How many calories do our cells need to function well? The number is different for every person. You may notice on the nutritional labels of the foods you buy that the "percent daily values" are based on a 2,000 calorie diet—2,000 calories is a rough average of what a person needs to eat in a day, but your body might need more or less than 2,000 calories. Weight, gender, age and activity level affect your caloric needs.
Physical activity consumes a high number of calories. Physical activity includes everything from making your bed to jogging. Walking, lifting, bending and moving around burns calories and the number of calories you burn in any given activity depends upon your body weight, effort or intensity, and the amount of time you spend participating in the activity.
For 1 week, keep up with everything you eat. Write it down. Google how many calories you consume each day. Then, write down all activities/exercise you perform each day. What do your numbers look like?
- What did you find most surprising about the number of calories in the foods selected?
- Based on the information you have learned about calories, list 3 good nutrition habits you can adopt.
- How can you use this information to help make nutritious food choices?
- Why is participating in 60 minutes a day of physical activity important?
- Describe how you ensure that you accumulate 60 minutes of physical activity each day.
- Discuss if increasing daily physical activity can make up for poor food habits.
- What is your reaction to learning the amount of physical activity time required to burn calories?
