Calories Explained
  • A calorie is a unit of energy.
  • In nutrition and everyday language, calories
    refer to energy consumption through eating and
    drinking and energy usage through physical
  • For example, an apple may have 80 calories, while
    a 1 mile walk may use up about 100 calories.

Recommended Daily Calorie Guidelines
  • Average adult female 2000
  • Average adult male 2500
  • Teenagers need a higher calorie intake because
    they are growing

Why Do We Need Calories?
  • We need a certain number of calories just to
  • Even if you are not moving your lungs need to
    pump oxygen, your heart needs to pump blood, your
    kidneys need to excrete wastes, your liver needs
    to detoxify and your brain needs to coordinate
    what your body is doing.

Organ Calorie Usage
Heart 12 of calories
Kidneys 12 of calories
Liver 23 of calories
Brain 23 of calories
Skeletal Muscle 30 of calories
How Many Calories In
  • Every packaged item that you buy must contain
    nutritional information on a label.
  • This will list the amount of carbohydrates,
    sugar, fats, protein, salt, calories, etc. in the
    food, normally given per portion size.

Examples of food labelling
Food Labelling Explained
  • A snickers bar has 250 calories BUT calories are
    not the only things you should look at!!!
  • 27grams of sugar
  • (4 grams of sugar 1 teaspoon)
  • So there are almost 7 teaspoons of sugar in a
  • You should also look at the salt content. It is
    recommended you only have 6 grams of salt a day

  • We need calories to function properly
  • Eating too many calories in a day has a negative
    impact on your health
  • Equally important eating too little calories
    everyday can also have a hugely negative impact
    on your daily functions, as well as your hair,
    skin and nails.

Another way to achieve a balanced diet is to use
the Food Pyramid
0-3 portions
2-3 portions

Eating Habits in Coolmine
  • We surveyed a number of students, both male and
    female on their daily food and drink intake.
  • The results in the following slides are their
    calories consumed, five days a week, over a one
    year period.
  • (Survey carried out in 2013/14)

  • We need calories to carry out our everyday
    activities. Not all calories are bad.
  • Excessive calories, as long as they are burnt off
    through exercise is fine e.g.. a professional
    athlete may consume up to 10000 calories a day
    but exercise for several hours.
  • Food is very important to our health but its
    equally important we get enough good foods.
  • Treats are fine but should be just that a treat
    and not something you have several times a day

Transition Year Female
  • Breakfast biscuits x 3 and tea
  • Lunch chocolate bar and half crisp roll
  • Dinner tuna and pasta
  • Snacks noodles, biscuits and tea
  • Approx 2600 calories. This is 450 calories over
    the daily allowance.
  • This amounts to 146000 extra calories a year
  • Which if not burnt off equals 3 stone weight
    gain over a year

    there is no fruit and vegetables or water.

    tiredness, lack of energy, poor teeth, hair,
    nails and skin health.
  • Aside from the calories this is a very poor diet

    having breakfast has a serious effect on your
