1. From the Survey, “Are you Eating Smart,” my results were the following: The eating smart score you get is 21. Good!!! You are eating smart!!! You have been careful to limit your fats and eat a varied diet. Keep up the good habits and continue to look for ways to improve. The American Cancer Society had provided the following guidelines for preventing cancer. Decrease your total intake of fats. Watch your weight; avoid obesity. Eat more of foods that are high in fiber. Eat foods that are rich in vitamins A and C on a daily basis. Eat cruciferous (cabbage-family) vegetables. If you drink, keep alcohol consumption moderate . I can conclude form this survey that the way I am eating right now, I am doing a good job. I don’t eat much fatty foods and it is awesome to know that what I am eating I am doing a good job about it. The questions that were asked, really got to the point about asking if you intake the foods daily or not at all. It really made me think about what I was in taking but also knowing that what I was eating was good for my body. 2. Being physically fit and yet have too much fat is a possibility. Being an athlete they “have a high muscle mass, and low body fat (and we all know that muscle weighs more than fat). The lower body fat is not a genetic advantage - it comes from intense and regular physical activity. So, it is possible to be overweight, but not over-fat.” Just because you are physically fit, your fat percent can still be over the limit for your frame. Especially around the middle. Best way to tell is by having your ratio checked. Being in your ideal weight and be unhealthy is very common because people develop at a different rate. The body begins making hormones that spark physical changes like faster muscle growth (particularly in guys) and spurts in height and weight gain in both guys and girls. Then you have models whom are at ideal weight for their job
