Each paraphrased entry should be 3-5 sentences. You might need to add more info when building your final presentation

Hormones produced in the brain, released during physical activity, linger in the brain area and promote brain growth. Early humans who were more inclined to partake in daily physical activity passed these genes onto the next generation, which made humans smarter than other species
Steve Sieber's comment, March 13, 2013 10:48 PM
As humans reproduced over time, they hunted to take down prey of larger stature. Eventually, humans changed from a race that "moved" on all fours to walking, to running and sprinting. It is believed that one of the reasons humans became so smart is because physical activity promoted brain growtht

Interview Results

Interview with Miss Lisa Flynn, registered and licensed dietician

 

1.What inspired you to choose your career?

 

Being involved in sports most of my life I have always been into fitness--nutrition came later when I was in college.  I took a nutrition class my freshman year in college and fell in love with it.  It amazed me how much the body/organs can be affected good or bad by what we eat.

 

2.    In your words, give me a definition of exercising.

 

My definiton of exercise is the body in motion.  Any type of moving or exertion a person may do to burn calories or get in shape.      

 

3.    What diet plan should one follow if they wish to lose weight?


There are so many diet plans out there.  In fact, one of the biggest money makers on the market.  Most people will spend lots of money on something they think will be a quick fix for them.   Weight does not come on overnight--therefore we cannot lose it overnight.I have found the best diet plan out there is weight watchers because it does not eliminate any one food or food group from a person's diet.  It teaches portion control and incorporating activity into your daily routine.   They also offer weekly meetings for support with other people that are trying to lose weight.

 

4.How do diets vary amongst individual (children, teenagers, adults, atheltes, the 9-5 worker)?


In so many ways diets vary amongst individuals--first of all we all have our food preferences and we all like or dislike different foods.  Diets can also vary for health reasons like food allergies, diabetes, high blood pressure, celiac disease, heart disease, renal failure(just to name a few)Growing children, teenagers and athletes all probably need more calories than your average adult working 9 to 5.    Even your career could depend on what you eat..for instance a person who is sedentary all day working at their computer would need less calories per day then a construction worker who is doing heaving lifting and exertion.All of these individuals should incorporate at least 5 serivings of fruits and vegetables and try to choose leaner meats more often than fatty meats.

 

5.How can a healthy diet combined with physical activity improve one's lifestyle?


A healthy diet combined with exercise has proven to be so beneifical for one's health.    In adult women it has been proven that weight bearing activity has decreased the instances of ostepororis.Also those people that have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes that are overweight and not eating properly can completely reverse and cure this disease by losing weight/exercise/ and following a healthy diet.Those with high blood pressure can decrease their medications or completely go off of their medicine by following a healthy diet and incorporating exercise(same holds true for those on cholesterol medications)Most diseases are caused by not eating healthy and lack of activity--this in turns can lead to obesity(which can be the catalyst for many problems)

 

6.HOw can eating a healthy diet be beneficial to all peoples?


It may not keep you from getting diseases, but it could definitely delay the onset of a disease or the need for medicationsAgain, just eating a healthy diet and incorporating exercise can make daily activities easier for you to accomplish because you will have more energy because you do not have to carry all the extra weight around.Average weight people tend to get a better night sleep--overweight people could develop sleep apnea or snore more which interupts one's sleep.

 

7.What is the Overload Principle (Why is it that people push their bodies to the extreme while trying to lose weight and cut the amount of calories taken in)?  How can this harm one's body? 

The overload principle is completely based on the way one physcially trains or pushs themselves in exercise.  If applied correctly it is a brilliant way to train.The human body is involved in a constant process of adapting to stresses or lack of stresses placed upon it. When you stress the body in a manner it’s unaccustomed to (overload), the body will react by causing physiological changes (adaptation) to be able to handle that stress in a better way the next time it occurs. 
The overload priciple forces the body to adapt to the stresses that are being placed on the targeted muscle--therefore improving your performance and seeing results faster.    

 

By the way my proper title is registered and licensed dietitian-  if you want someone with credentials that is the name you have to look forIf you see nutritionist--anyone can call themself that--you could say I am steve sieber a nutritionist-- so it is important to look for that when looking for correct nutritional information.

... or the heart becoming stronger through cardiovascular exercise. These are just two examples of thousands and thousands of tiny adaptations that occur inside our bodies when we exercise with purpose!

Our human ancestors survived through using their endurance which allowed them hunt for their much faster prey, as they hunted in packs
Steve Sieber's comment, March 13, 2013 10:13 AM
With increased endurance levels, early humans had more energy to hunt, eat, and most importantly, mate, which allowed for humans, with increased endurance, to pass along their genes to the next generation
Steve Sieber's comment, March 13, 2013 10:28 AM
Scientific tests prove that physical activity stimulates the brain and promotes tissue growth. This produces elevated levels of BDNF. This hormone grows sparks brain growth and development
