Sometimes a special diet is needed to stay healthy or regain health, and some conditions require special diets.What is the difference between anabolism and catabolism? ANSWER: Anabolism converts nutrients into complex substances needed to build body tissues. Catabolism converts complex substances into simpler forms and converts them into energy.Correct!49-*NutrientsNeeded for EnergyGrowthRepairBasic processesEnergy is only provided byProteinsCarbohydratesFats Nutrients are provided byProteinsCarbohydratesFiberLipidsVitaminsMineralsWater49-*ProteinsFunctions Building and repairing cells and tissuesMaintaining water balanceAntibody production and disease resistanceMaintaining body heat10% to 20% of total caloric intake daily1 gm = 4 caloriesDeficiency Weight loss/fatigueMalnutritionLower resistance to infectionInterference with normal growth processes49-*Proteins (cont.)Complete proteinsContain all 9 essential amino acidsAnimal food sourcesRecommend lean meats, low-fat or skim milkIncomplete proteinsLack one or more essential amino acidsPlant sourcesCan be combined to provide all 9 essential amino acids49-*CarbohydratesFunctionsProvide 2/3 of daily energy needsProvide heatMetabolize fatsPreserve protein for uses other than energy production50% to 60% of total caloric intake daily1 gm = 4 caloriesDeficiency Weight lossProtein lossFatigue Excess contributes to fat stores49-*Carbohydrates (cont.)Complex carbohydratesPolysaccharides – long chains of sugar unitsTypes Starch – major source of energyFiberSimple sugarsFruits and some vegetablesMilkTable sugarExcess Stored in liver and muscles cells as glycogenConverted into and stored as fat49-*FiberDoes not supply energy or heatFunctionsIncreases and softens the bulk of stoolAbsorbs wastes and toxinsDecreases the rate of carbohydrate breakdown and absorption20 – 30 gm per day for adultsTypesSoluble Absorbs fluid and swells when eatenSlows absorption Helps control blood glucoseLowers cholesterolInsoluble – promotes regular bowel movements49-*LipidsConcentrated source of energy 1 gm = 9 caloriesTriglycerides Simple lipids 95% of dietary lipids Cholesterol Compound lipids5% of dietary lipidsFunctionsProvide a concentrated source of energyTransport fat-soluble vitaminsStore energy as body fat – insulate and protect organsProvide a feeling of fullness49-*Lipids (cont.)Saturated fatsPrimarily from animal sourcesSolid at room temperatureTrans fats Formed during hydrogenation of vegetable oilsFDA recommends zero consumptionUnsaturated fatsLiquid at room temperatureTypes PolyunsaturatedMonounsaturated 49-*Lipids (cont.)Lipid levelsHigh cholesterol Heart disease/stroke Peripheral vascular diseaseLipoproteins Carry lipids through the bloodstreamLow-density (LDL)High-density (HDL)Cholesterol Fat-related substance produced by liverAnimal-based food sourcesEssential to healthPart of cell membranesStructural basis for steroid hormones and vitamin DComponent of bile49-*ECVitaminsOrganic substances Essential for normal growth and maintenance Essential for resistance to infectionHelp the body use other nutrientsAssist with body processesAbsorbed through digestive tractTypes Water soluble – not stored by the bodyFat-soluble – stored by the bodyWell-balanced diet usually minimizes likelihood of vitamin deficiencyAB12B6D49-*MineralsNatural, inorganic substancesBuild and maintain tissuesCarry out life functionsMajor minerals – needed in large quantitiesTrace minerals – needed in small amounts Absorbed in intestinesEstablished RDAsCalcium  Zinc Iodine  Iron Magnesium  Phosphorus Selenium 49-*WaterNo caloric value65% of body weightFunctionsMaintains fluid balanceLubricates moving partsDissolves chemicals and nutrientsAids in digestionTransports nutrients and secretionsFlushes out wastesRegulates body temperature49-*Water (cont.)Fluid balance – intake should equal outputPatient educationExplain the importance of waterList sources of water49-*Principal Electrolytes and Nutrients of Special InterestElectrolytesSodium Fluid and acid-base balanceMaintains normal conditions inside and outside of cellsPotassiumMuscle contractionFluid and electrolyte balanceChlorideFluid and electrolyte balanceComponent of hydrochloric acidAntioxidants – chemical agents that neutralize free radicals (by-products of normal metabolism)49-*Apply Your KnowledgeMatching:___ Bulk to stool A.

Calories are measured in the foods we eat. We can also estimate the amount of calories used by the body during activity. 49.3 The body needs a variety of nutrients for energy, growth, repair, and basic processes. There are several food components that provide nutrients. These are proteins, carbohydrates, fiber, lipids, vitamins, minerals, and water.49-*In Summary (cont.)49.4 Dietary guidelines suggest the types and quantities of food that people should eat each day. They may also contain recommendations about which types of foods to limit and which types of foods to increase.49.5 The Food Guide Pyramid provides recommendations for eating a variety of nutrients and maintaining physical activity. Following the Food Guide Pyramid recommendations promotes a well-balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.49.6 Calipers are used to perform a skinfold test that determines the percentage of body fat.49-*In Summary (cont.)49.7 Dietary modifications may be used alone or in combination with other therapies to prevent or treat illness.49.8 Patients with allergies, anemia, cancer, diabetes, advancing age, heart disease, hypertension, lactose sensitivity, and obesity need special diets. In addition, pediatric, pregnant, lactating, and debilitated patients, as well as those undergoing drug therapy, need modifications to their diet. 49-*In Summary (cont.)49.9 You should now the signs and symptoms of eating disorders in order to evaluate for these disorders during the patient interview. Some of the more common signs and symptoms for each include:anorexia nervosa – unexplained weight loss, self-starvation, and fear of weight gainbulimia – eating large quantities of food in a short period of time, going to the bathroom immediately after eating, and using laxatives to excessbinge eating – not followed by purging and weight gain49-*In Summary (cont.)49.10 You may play a major role in educating patients about special diets and in helping them to implement dietary changes as instructed by physicians and dietitians. Knowledge of basic nutritional principles and current nutritional findings will help you perform these tasks with confidence and competence.49.11 Documenting nutritional education is part of preventative health care practice and is required to help ensure payment by managed care and other health insurance companies.49-*End of Chapter 49He that eats till he is sick must fast till he is well.  ~English Proverb
