The Concept Of Nutrient Density Is Most Helpful In Achieving What Principle Of Diet Planning?
– Energy Density: Calories per unit weight of food
– Protein Density: grams of protein per unit weight of food
– Micronutrient Density: Nutrient/weight ratio, especially vitamins and minerals, which we often under eat, while overeating more common nutrients such as carbohydrate and fat.
The concept of nutrient density helps achieve what principle of diet planning?: Energy Balance. Energy balance is achieved by balancing intake with expenditure, and nutrient-dense foods that provide a high amount of calories for the volume they occupy on our plate will help us control caloric intake while ensuring we get all the nutrients we need.
What are some examples of low nutrient density foods?
– “White bread”
– “Refined grains”
– “Soda pop”
What are some examples of high nutrient density foods?
– “Tomato paste”
– “Dried herbs and spices.”
What are some examples of nutrient-dense foods?
. Broccoli, beans, tomato paste, dried herbs and spices, blackstrap molasses. These foods provide a large number of micronutrients for the calories they contain. For example, 3 ounces of sirloin beef provides approximately 100 kcal in addition to 27 g protein, while 1/2 cup cooked lentils provide nearly 100 kcal in addition to 9 g protein and 8% DV fiber. Lentils provide more nutrition per calorie than steak!
What does an empty-calorie food contain?
-no carbs, no sugars, and no fats.
Biscuits have carbs – chocolate biscuits have sugar and fat too.
Bread is a bad empty-calorie food because it has carbs, sugar, and fat.
You’d be better off eating only the chocolate from the packet on some biscuits than you would if you ate bread with that biscuit!
Don’t eat fruit juice or smoothies unless they are 100% fruit with no added sugars in them at all… a lot of fruit juices on sale in supermarkets etc. add more fructose corn syrup to make them sweeter, for example, some apple/orange juices add 15g of fructose corn syrup per 8oz / 224g bottle which is a LOT! even adding just 5g of fructose corn syrup can increase the appetite and craving for sweet foods too.
The best beverages to drink are TEA (all kinds, green tea is especially great) and water (plenty of it daily). You don’t drink tea with any sugar in it at all, do you? No, that would be silly! So why do people think they should put sugar into their fruit juice or smoothies etc when there’s just as much empty kcalorie in them as in tea?
Coffee is fine too – black coffee only, though, because putting anything in your hot drinks other than steamed milk or water means adding calories, thus changing the food from an ’empty’ one to a bad calorie one when it comes to drinking.
Nutrient-dense refers to foods that Quizlet?
-are full of vitamins and minerals.
-contain a high amount of nutrients compared to their number of calories.
Which food is nutrient-dense?
Broccoli, beans, tomato paste, dried herbs and spices, blackstrap molasses all provide many micronutrients for the calories they contain – such as 60% DV fiber in 1/2 cup cooked lentils or 100% RDI vitamin A for 3 ounces lean sirloin beef providing only 160 kcal. 
Which food has empty calories?
Table sugar, processed meats (bacon), white bread (like sandwich thins), refined grains (also like sandwich thins), and soda pop all have a high number of empty kcals with very few micronutrients.
Which foods should be consumed daily?
-“Dried herbs and spices.”
Which foods should be avoided?
Processed meats, white bread, refined grains, and soda pop contain many empty kilocalories with few micronutrients. The foods to avoid would also include fruit juice and smoothies, which are often high in fructose corn syrup, making them a terrible choice for consuming the amount of kcal the average person needs in a day.
What are some examples of foods that have high nutrient density?
Broccoli, beans, tomato paste, dried herbs and spices, blackstrap molasses all provide many micronutrients for the calories they contain – such as 60% DV fiber in 1/2 cup cooked lentils or 100% RDI vitamin A for 3 ounces lean sirloin beef providing only 160 kcal.
