  1. Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don’t need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can’t do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores

    • I think to deal with this situation we have to use foods which can provide us,sufficent energy which we need to get done our daily activities.using variety of vegtables and frriuts will help us to obtain our required vitamin.going on a diet does not mean that you avoid eating foods,as a matter of of fact u have to avoid unhealthy foods.

      • First of all, I’m glad you could make it this session. I mean, you completed your assignments on time.
        Corrections:
        provide sb with sth / provide sth for sb
        to get our daily activities done
        Like almost always, consider a space among sentences
        a variety of sth (vegetables)
        avoid using informal signs, for example, “u” for you. This is an academic setting.

  2. 6. I think this statement is not accurate. There has been a lot of athletes who are sick. However, diet alone is also useless. What is more important is to avoid eating unhealthy foods

    • Dear Sohrab, welcome to this theme-based class.
      Please note that you should raise a “question” here, and this comment is not a question.
      You can study the class rules on top of this page, again.
      Thank you.

    • Since diet can affect the appearance of people as well as their state of mind and their mood, It may have some effects on the personality of people. For example, people who are obese or overweight may be treated differently in the society or healthy diet can help us to be more refreshed and more energetic. As a matter of fact, people who do not care of their diet may be afflicted with different kinds of diseases which prevent them from affording and doing their duties well.

    • ;) “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dine like a pauper “ : Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for providing your essential minerals and vitamins because more calories should be consumed earlier in the day.

    • A balanced diet is one that gives your body the nutrients it needs to function correctly. In order to get the proper nutrition from your diet, you should obtain the majority of your daily calories from:
      1. fresh fruits
      2. fresh vegetables
      3. whole grains
      4. legumes
      5. nuts
      6. lean proteins

    • Best Foods for Your Brain:

      – A diet rich in walnuts may improve mental performance. A synergy between the specific type of antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids in this nut might be at work here to boost brain power.
      – Flax is the best source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)—a healthy fat that improves the workings of the cerebral cortex, the area of the brain that processes sensory information like touch and taste.
      – The primary fuel for your brain is glucose, which comes from carbohydrates such as those abundant in oats. Since your body breaks down the carbs in whole-grain oats very slowly, they help keep you sharp for several hours.
      – Eggs, more specifically the yolks, are a leading source of choline. Choline is a precursor for acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in helping you remember things like where you left the car keys. Eating protein-rich foods like eggs for breakfast can improve overall cognitive performance, according to Swiss researchers.
      – Scientists at Wake Forest University determined that natural nitrates in beets can increase blood flow to the brain, thereby improving mental performance.
      – Richer in zinc than many other seeds, pumpkin seeds supply this valuable mineral which is vital for enhancing memory and thinking skills. These little seeds are also full of stress-busting magnesium, B vitamins and tryptophan, the precursor to the good mood chemical serotonin
      – Harvard Medical School researchers found that women who ate the most vegetables—especially green leafy vegetables (spinach and romaine lettuce) and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli and cauliflower)—experienced a slower rate of cognitive decline than women who ate the least vegetables. Moreover, women with healthy iron levels performed better on mental tasks and completed them faster than those with poor iron status. Iron helps transport oxygen throughout the body and to the brain.

    • I strangely agree with that for two reasons. First, doing exercises has efficiency effects on one physically. Obviously when you do exercise your body operate well and get strange. Also, as it’s well-known that sound mind in a sound body. Every time you do something your brine commences order to your body how to do that properly. In sum, doing exercise is more important for having a healthy body.

    • Yes, I agree. There’s no doubt that nutrition and exercise are both vitally important to good health. Therefore, we could do some things in order to be healthier, like sit less, do exercise regularly, eat more vegetables and eat less processed food. Physical activity has more benefits such as reduce blood sugar, blood pressure and depression. Also, Physical activity improves appearance and increases mental sharpness, sense of well-being, longevity, etc. Moreover, weight loss and weight gain revolve around caloric consumption and expenditure. Hence, we lose weight when we eat less calories than we expend. Conversely, we gain weight when we eat more calories than we expend. On the other hand, the food choices we make have Equal value with amount of exercise we’re doing.

    • I think that a healthy diet and regular exercise are both important to live better. Eating well is good for your mental as well as your physical health. Also, we need physical activity to burn calories and use it in lungs or muscles.
