The Secret

...The Secret can be helpful for those who are looking to develop a positive attitude and create a winning mind set. By being more hopeful they would increase their chances of excelling in what they set out to do. The secret can also help an individual’s creativity to improve because it can inspire them to see things differently. For a client who is doubtful about their own potential as a person, it could empower them to see the good in themselves. The motivational messages presented in this movie can be very powerful in helping people overcome their challenges. The movie speaks of a breast cancer survivor and “The Miracle Man” who used the secret and became healthy again .Although this may not seem convincing, it could bring hope to person’s life. Although this movie is a great self help guide, I wouldn’t recommend it to a client. If they experienced a devastating situation in their life it could be very troubling for them to believe that they attracted it. The movie states that all the negative experiences in our life are due to us attracting it. This means that the victims of 9/11, cancer patients, and every victim of the Haiti catastrophe, were the creators of their own suffering. They also say that it is life changing to accept it as our own mistake. I believe that these suggestions are completely wrong. Nobody would want to attract illness, disaster, or hardship into their life. In this part, I think the secret is mistaken. In conclusion, I think that the secret is a......

Your response to each question should be 75 to 100 words. 1. What is nutrition? Why is nutrition essential to our daily lives? | “As molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics advance, nutrition has become more focused on the steps of biochemical sequences through which substances inside us and other living organisms are transformed from one form to another - metabolism and metabolic pathways” (Bellavia, 2013) The focus of Nutrition is on diseases, how to prevent or try to slow down conditions or problems by using a healthy diet. Nutrition also is involved in figuring out how certain diseases, or cancers may be caused by environmental factors, poor diet as with a people with malnutrition, and allergies to food. Nutrition is so important that major food manufactures employ scientists and nutritionists to help them educate and research. | 2. What is the connection between nutrition and health? | Nutrition and health are dependent on one another.

...Gregory Smith Professor Virginia Uhley FNS 370 14 April 2014 The Vegan Diet: A Healthy Risk Consuming foods rich in nutrients is more likely to reduce the risk of degenerative diseases than taking a broad array of supplements for many reasons. Research has shown that people who eat more vegetables and fruits have lower risks of several diseases including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Supplements cannot provide all of the nutrients of food. Although many of the same vitamins are provided, it is not proven that vitamins are solely responsible for reducing disease. Whole foods also contain many other naturally occurring substances that help protect you from many diseases. For example, grains provide essential fiber that prevents diabetes and heart disease (Mayo Clinic, 2013). Supplements containing too many individual nutrients can actually cause health problems due to toxicity and vitamin interactions. Since there is no significant data to suggest that vitamin intake is the sole reason for reducing specific diseases, healthy food consumption is a better route to good health. * Some people believe that consuming food is not any more likely to prevent the risk of degenerative diseases than taking supplements. Many of the same vitamins in minerals found in whole foods are provided in supplements. Many Americans are struggling to meet daily recommendations in their diet. Poor food consumption is damaging health and a broad array of supplements......

...PERSONALIZED NUTRITION AND EXERCISE PLAN 2 Personalized Nutrition and Exercise Plan Identify the health and nutrition problem that may be targeted. Discuss the disease/issue The current health problem I have is my family has a history of heart disease and Type II diabetes. I went to the doctor's office recently where she drew blood for a variety of tests. She was concerned about my blood sugar levels. Everything turned out fine but it made me realize that I could stand to lose some weight and start eating healthier. I do not want to face this problem again and do not want the family history to affect my future. Plus, if I am blessed with children, I want to be a healthy example for them. Discuss four nutritional and/or physical exercise goals My biggest goal is to lose a minimum of 50 pounds. In the past six months, I have gained about twenty pounds, especially in my middle. This is driving me nuts. So, on top of getting rid of the extra weight altogether, I want to erase my “muffin top”. Along with slimming my waist, I would like to tone my arms. One final goal, although I am not sure this one is attainable due to a bad knee, is to start jogging. When class started, I was more active than near the end of class. When I utilized the pyramid activity tracker in week 6, the results did not surprise me. I knew that I had fallen off the wagon so to speak. My average PA Score on was 65.3 which was mostly due to an afternoon......

Nutrition: Vegetarian

...easily accessible form of protein, and contain a wide range of amino acids. Although dairy products provide a good protein source for most vegetarians, it is important to have protein from other sources also. Vegans are at highest risk of protein deficiency, as vegetable proteins are often low in certain essential amino acids such as lysine and methionine. Regular inclusion of rice, nuts, seeds and grains is important to ensure a good amino-acid balance. * Minerals Vegetarians have often been found to have lower blood levels of some minerals such as copper, zinc and selenium. Crops grown with artificial fertilizer are particularly low in minerals. It may be sensible for vegetarians to take a multi-mineral supplement. Meat-eating Good points: Meat is a good source of protein, iron, B-group vitamins, and calories. The wide variety of meat products available makes it easy to have a varied and enjoyable diet without much inconvenience. As a meat and fish eater myself, I would add that they simply taste great, and for many people, turn eating into a source of great pleasure. Nutrition experts generally agree that there is little convincing evidence that meat itself is bad. The amount of meat eaten, and especially the amount of red meat (beef, lamb and pork) is more important when looking at health risk. Inclusion of some low-fat meat and fish doesn't seem to be in any way harmful, and can be beneficial in lowering the risk of nutrient deficiencies. Bad points: There......

...Research has shown that the top health and nutrition concerns in America are associated with severe diseases like diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer and hypertension. Nutritionists assure that physical activity and eating the right foods are the best medicines. However, research shows that Americans do not follow the right recommendations. This was the main reason why I chose to teach this topic. Providing them with the right information and guidelines to face this issue is my goal. Besides being well aware and informed about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, I am a person who is really passionate for food, cooking, and exercising. I am constantly reading and researching about nutritional news, facts and healthy ideas to include into my daily basis. Moreover, I am currently interning at WBHI, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help women with breast cancer and heart disease. I am confident that prevention and education is key to a healthier and happier life. These are other secondary reasons why I felt motivated to teach students and professors in my community about “Healthy Lifestyle.” I will take advantage of this lesson as a way to educate my peers and professors using the right teaching techniques about what I already know and feel passionate about. First, I most understand their attitudes towards health and food. From past experiences and research, I have acknowledged that students and professors at college and universities like UM are relatively......

The Secret

...THE SECRET by Rhonda Byrne - Reaction Paper The Secret is a book written by Rhonda Byrne, which is known as the best-selling book in 2006. I was amazed when I entered the classroom and found out that we’ll be viewing/watching the DVD about The Secret. I have heard about this documentary since I was in 3rd year college and by this time I finally got the chance to watch a masterpiece. I wanted to watch this since but I never had the chance to because I got so busy with school activities but right now I think I am lucky that I am a part who knows The Secret and I am thankful to know it.  To begin with, The Secret is a life changing, it makes you financially independent, it let your mind powerful and lastly, it will make you successful. The Secret is kept hidden from thousands of people and they let their ignorance spread to people; it was buried, coveted, suppressed and it was never revealed to the public. According to Bob Proctor, a philosopher, the secret gives you anything you want; happiness, health, and wealth. He also said that “we become what we think”, which means whatever we think it predict our future. The law of Attraction is The Secret; what we see, hold, or even our thoughts are equivalent to what we need, want or even demand and it attracts to you. Like what I watched and jotted down, an optimistic thought is a thousand’s more powerful than pessimistic thought. The more you think, the more it will happen because the universe is reacting to what you want;......
