Fatty acids

organic acids that aid in the transportation and breakdown of cholesterol


is used by the body to synthesize Vitamin D, to maintain the proper functioning of nerve cells, to keep skin soft and supple, and to transport fat to cells.

fats aid in the

absorption of Vitamins A, D, E, and K. development of healthy bones, teeth, and skin

Excess fats stored

in tissue under the skin and around vital organs


essential to cellular construction, reproduction, and maintenance. used for energy

Essential amino acids


complete protein

is a protein source that contains all the essential amino acids(milk)


chemicals that are essential to all cellular activity. they are only found in living things

Vitamins essential for health


Fat-soluble vitamins

are dependent upon fats for absorption

Water-soluble vitamins

include Vitamins C, B12, and B complex vitamins. stores for a very short period of time must be ingested daily

Vitamin C

reproduction of bone tissue


function with enzymes to build new cells, repair damaged ones, and utilize energy. they are used to build teeth, bones, muscles, and nerve cells, and to maintain the correct functioning of the heart and the brain

used by the human body to maintain health

used by the human body to maintain health


needed in large amounts for good health. include calcium, chlorine, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and sulfur. Trace elements include chromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, selenium, and zinc

best source of protein


Vitamin B12 , B-complex , iron, and other minerals.

Organ meats

good sources of iron.


scientific measurement of fuel converted to energy


list fats, carbohydrates, protein, and vitamin and mineral value

saturated fats

blood cholesterol levels.

Anorexia nervosa

Eating disorder

Elements needed in small amounts for good health

Trace elements : chromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, selenium, and zinc

Most concentrated form of energy


fat % calories per gram



Aids absorb vitamins,protects organs ,digest other food


% of fat in diet

good eating habits

basis for physical fitness

exercise will enable you

to perform daily tasks with an increased amount of energy and enthusiasm.

Aerobic exercise



cellular fuel provides muscles with the energy

skeletal muscles

consist of two types of fibers, fast twitch

Fast twitch

enable you to exert a great amount of power in a short period of time

Slow twitch muscle

great endurance exert force repeatedly for an extended period of time


demonstrates the possible range of motion of muscles, joints, and ligaments. Regular participation in stretching exercises increases circulation, making muscles and joints more flexible

body composition

examined with regards to lean mass in proportion to fat

three body types

ectomorph, endomorph, and mesomorph


tall and thin


normal height and are well built


bodies are short and stout

anaerobic exercise

strenuous exertion of a specific muscle group does not require the use of oxygen causes the muscle cells to produce lactic acid

Muscles can

only function without oxygen for a short period of time

Physical fitness

functioning of the circulatory, respiratory, and muscular systems

measurement of Cardiorespiratory

muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition are measurements of physical fitness

Cardiorespiratory fitness

the ability of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems to efficiently transfer oxygen and nutrients to skeletal muscles

determine cardiorespiratory fitness

measure your resting heart rate

Aerobic exercise

seeks to strengthen the heart and increase the capacity of the lungs through the extended use of large muscle groups. target heart rate for at least 12 minutes.

spiritual state

aspect of your well-being.
