Risk factors to health above 40 years: 

1)Food-Nutrition: Balance food dis-apperered from your plate.

    • Include a variety of dark green, red, orange vegetables, beans and peas, starchy and non-starchy food items use.
    • use available seasonal fruits.
    • consume half of your grains in food as whole grains.
    • Control fat-free or low-fat dairy consumption.
    • Include a protein at every meal.
    • Use healthy oils, such as olive oil.

Protein is needed to build and repair your muscles, make hair and skin, fight against infections, and carry oxygen in your blood.

Proteins are made up of twenty different building blocks called amino acids. Your body can make some amino acids, but there are nine that can’t be made (we call these “essential amino acids”), and the only way to get them is through the food you eat.

2)High protein food:

Plant foods such as legumes (beans, lentils, and peas), nuts, peanut butter, seeds, and soy foods (soybeans, soy milk, and tofu) are all high in protein.

Animal foods such as meat, fish, turkey, chicken, eggs, milk, cheese, and yogurt are also good sources of protein.

3) My daily protein requirement:

The amount of protein that you need daily, or the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA), depends on your age and body size, but most teens need, on average, between 40 and 60 grams of protein each day.

If you’re 11-13 years old:

Multiply your weight in pounds by 0.455; this gives you about how many grams of protein you need each day.

If you’re 15-18 years old:

Multiply your weight in pounds by 0.36 to estimate how many grams of protein you need each day.

Keep in mind that this is just an estimate. If you are very active and play sports, you may need more protein than someone who is not as active.

Daily eat protein containing food:

Protein is a filling nutrient, so it’s a good idea to eat some at every meal and at most snacks to feel satisfied and not hungry. Our bodies have no way of storing protein so you can’t eat it all at one meal and assume that your body will have enough at other times.
