Blog Assignment #3 – Diets and Dietary Restrictions

I has tried to eat the Atkins diet for a week. The core of the Atkins diet is a low-carb diet. It means I had to restrict carbohydrates in my diet. “A half of the kcalories you eat everyday come from carbohydartes. Carbohydartes include sugars, starches, and fibers (Drummond, Brefere, Grosvenor, & Bedoya, 2017, p.44)”. This diet focus on high protein, low fat, and vegetables.

Technically, I have allergies to sea fish. So I will show you my daily menus for this concept without sea fish.Read More »

Blog #2: Plant Based versus Animal Based Diets


1)       What is the definition of a plant-based diet?

“A ‘plant-based diet’ puts more emphasis on eating plant foods such as vegetables and fruits, whole-grains and legumes (beans) and less emphasis on eating animal foods. Plant foods that are low in calories, high in nutrients and dietary fibre should fill 2/3 or more of your plate while animal foods, such as cheese, meat, fish, poultry and eggs should make up the rest. The plant-based diet is not a vegetarian or weight loss diet; it follows Canada’s Food Guide.” (Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, 2011)Read More »

Nutrition Blog #1 – Introduce

Welcome back to my blog,

There have been 3 person in my relatives who were stroke since last year. Unluckily that two of them didn’t get away it. There are many reasons lead to their death, but the same point is they often ate outside. In my country, most of food outside is too much fat. I am the person live to eat, and I go to eat outside frequently. My diet is high-fat meats, less vegetables, and less fruits. Sometimes I cooked food with oil more than it required because that made food more delicious and more attractive. I didn’t really care about my health or my body shape but I felt both of them have been worse lately. At this time, I have just reconized that I should control fat into my body. Therefore the most thing I interest in nutrition right now is low-fat. You cannot eat without fat because your body still needs fat to survive. And I am addicted to fatty foods.Read More »
