Nutrition and Fitness SCI/100 May 6, 2013 Padma Tadi-Uppala Nutrition and Fitness Nutrition and fitness are two tools in which individuals must concentrate to stay healthy and fit. Although many individuals receive their nutrients from dietary supplements, the best way to receive nutrients is from food. Physical fitness plays a major role in staying healthy. Donatelle (2010) stated, “Physical fitness is the ability to perform moderate to vigorous levels of physical activity on a regular basis without excessive fatigue (p. 321). In an effort to become physically fit, individuals must increase the amount of time they exercise, the level of intensity, and the length of time spent doing physical activity.
For example, regular brisk walking can help you: • Maintain a healthy weight • Prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes • Strengthen your bones • Lift your mood • Improve your balance and coordination The faster, farther and more frequently you walk, the greater the benefits. Walking and biking are both excellent forms of cardiovascular exercise which, when performed regularly, can ward off disease, shed pounds, improve mental outlook and reduce the likelihood of dying young. Each have their merits and drawbacks, and which is the best choice for you largely depends upon what you'll enjoy doing most, the health of your joints and how much weight you'd like to lose. “Like walking, biking is low-impact and easy. It's also fun, and according to NutriStrategy, burns a lot of calories - significantly more than brisk walking.” (Bigelow) You’d be forgiven for wondering but stair climbing can have a significant and positive impact on an individual’s health over time.
Any time there is a physical burning of calories that is more than the calorie intake there will be a decrease of body fat. Once a person reaches their ideal weight, defining muscle tone is another great effect of exercise. Exercise makes muscles more proficient and more operational. High intensity exercise with only a few reps will produce strength, size, and power improvements, while low intensity exercise with many reps will produce endurance. The body’s metabolic rate is increased as its need for energy is increased, and the body becomes more resourceful.
We all know that exercise can sustain and improve our health, which is necessary for living a life of wellness, but what is not always known is how exercise can affect other aspects of our lives. Exercise is not only physical, it is also psychological. Exercise can do more for a person than just help them lose a few pounds, or maintain a healthy weight. Exercise controls weight. Most weight loss programs will not work without an exercise routine along with a structured diet plan.
Participation in regular activity improves your overall health and lowers your risk of the number one killer of men and women, heart disease. The physical benefits of both are abundant, but they lower the ricks of heart disease, hypertension, stroke, diabetes, and other vascular problems. They burn calories minimizing chance of obesity, metabolic syndrome, and some cancers. They help build bone mass lowering the risk of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and low-back pain. Lastly, exercise increases macrophage production, salivary immunoglobulin A, and increase immune cell circulation improving the function of the immune system.
Exercise is associated with the loss of body fat in both obese and normal weight persons. A regular program of exercise is an important component of any plan to help individuals lose, gain or maintain their weight. Overweight or Overfat? Overweight and overfat do not always mean the same thing. Some people are quite muscular and weigh more than the average for their age and height.
