Nutrition Assignment 2 Towards M2 D1 For this task I am going to consider 4 clients (1 from my presentation which I am going to expand on) and 3 others. The 4 client groups I am going to discuss are a 13 year old healthy, sporty boy who I did in my presentation, an obese 45 year old man, a 10 year old boy with a dairy allergy and a 30 year old male alcoholic. 13 year old healthy, sporty boy My client type is a 13 year old sporty, healthy boy. The recommended nutritional intake for him per nutrient is as followed: Energy (kcal) 2200, Protein (g) 42.1, calcium (mg) 1000, Iron (mg) 11.3, Vitamin A 600 (g), Vitamin B1 0.9 (mg), Vitamin B6 (mg) 1.2, Vitamin B12, 1.2, Vitamin C (mg) 35. What should a 13 year old healthy, sporty boy eat? He needs to eat a healthy balanced diet which will provide him with all the nutrients he needs to take part in his favourite sport or activity. This involves eating a wide range of foods mainly consisting of complex carbohydrates which provide a slow release of energy so he can do his sports and are filling too so he won't feel hungry for a while. This is good because it means he will not feel the need to fill up on pointless calories such as something unhealthy like a chocolate bar and crisps. These are good in moderation but won't benefit him if eaten all the time. In fact if he carries on eating junk and doesn't exercise enough he will then put on weight and suffer other health problems if his diet comprises of mainly fat. Another issue is that too much fat can actually slow down the metabolism. So to avoid this, a healthy choice of food should be eaten and unhealthy food should be cut down. ...read more.


This is what the 45 year old male should do. It is not necessary to crash diet. This usually ends up with the person concerned either getting weaker or giving up completely in desperation. This in turn can lead to a yo-yoing effect of the weight loss - weight gain cycle. This is where the weight can fluctuate i.e. go up and go down. You should cut down on fatty foods and eat more bread, fruit and vegetables. Eating 300 to 500 calories less per day, may lead to losing between one and two pounds per week. This is a realistic weight loss. It may seem slow, but would add up to a weight loss of more than three stone in a year. Having a glass of water instead of juice, eating less lunch than usual and having smaller portions of the food you enjoy are all ways to reduce calorific intake without having to necessarily alter your diet significantly. You should avoid a second helping at dinner and snacks between meals, which may have become a habit. Cut down on beer and alcohol. All these things will influence your health in a positive way.

Other solutions to a healthy weight loss * Hypnotism may influence healthy weight loss. Hypnotists such as Paul McKenna are renowned for their skills in helping someone think in a positive way by hypnotism. He produced a DVD which was cognitive therapy as it helped you think in a positive way which is beneficial for a lot of people. * Boot camp - if you want a dramatic weight loss and want a different experience of losing weight then this might be right up your street. However, it isn't for the faint hearted as it consists of intense, gruelling workouts which may completely drain you mentally and physically. ...read more.


Now if she is also told by her parents what she can't have in her diet and why it's important it will help her socially, mentally, physically and intellectually. It will help her socially because she will be able to eat with mates because as long as she is told what foods to avoid from her parents and has an idea of what she can and can't eat this won't affect her socialising with her mates. It will help her intellectually because she will have great knowledge about her condition so it will reflect on her on every stage of her development right up to her teens it will just be an auto-matic instinct to just double-check food packaging to ensure no unwanted dairy ingredients which will aggravate her diary intolerance consist in whatever she decides to eat. She will also know how vital it is to ask when eating out that nothing foreign is in her meals, in order to prevent getting a reaction. If she is eating at friends houses she will ask what ingredients are being put into the cooking so that she can check they are appropriate for her to eat. She will be mentally alright so won't be depressed or anything about her condition as she has extended her knowledge throughout her development regarding her condition so knows how to treat it and what are the hazards which provoke her condition to a severe level. She will be physically fit because she will be following a dairy-free diet accordingly so will have a good balance of health and enough calcium and will be experimenting with different foods so she will be very keen at trying new things and exploring with different ingredients. But also being cautious about what goes in what she eats before taking a mouthful. http//www.dairyallergy stuf.htm/accessed at 13.15pm on the 25th of April 2008, online, URL.
