Hannah's research on the human body
Hannah has been researching the human body, how its different parts work and the difference a good diet can make.
Everyone has a body to move and stretch, right? Well, the human body shows you what you can do with your own body. So, what is a human body? I’ve been doing some research on the body and here’s how. We have:
Head, Shoulders, Arms, Elbows, Wrists, Hands,Stomach, Spine, Feet, Back, Ears, Nose, Eyes, Phalanges (Fingers/Toes), Hips, Legs, Ankles, Pelvis
…. And much more body parts through anatomy science on human bodies. All these body parts have an individual biography that tells you more about that specific part of the body. For example:
Spine: A spine is the longest bone that is connected to the back of the neck straight down to the pelvis.
Head: Our heads are the pivoted joint that holds our entire body. It helps our body to move and stretch.
Arms: Our arms hold a lot of bone and muscle. It’s also connected to our wrists, hands, phalanges (fingers/thumbs), and our shoulders into the rest of the body. When we move and dance, our arms helps us to swing, draw circles with and also strenuous cardio-workouts like press-ups. Press-ups help our arms to be strong.
Hips: The hips are all connectively linked to our pelvis. When we dance we use our hips to draw circles with and stretch.
Legs: Our legs hold a lot of muscle and bone as well. They make us walk and jog for miles. When we move or dancing around, our legs get stronger by exercising them. Our legs are connected to our ankles, feet, phalanges (toes), and our hips.
As a dancer you learn everything about the science of your own body. You learn about the bones, the muscles, what and how you move that part of your body. For example: your back. Your back has a spine that can move you around like a snake. As being a Professional dancer you have to learn about being healthy and fit and learning to read your body.
Everybody also has to eat healthily, right? So, what kind of foods do we need to keep ourselves healthy? Here’s a list of food categories and a description about that kind of food.
Good Fats: Oils – any kind, Avocados, Olives, Nuts, Peanut Butter, Walnuts, Fatty fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, trout, and sardines), Soymilk, Tofu,
When you eat healthily fatty foods can sometimes be good and bad for you. In some fatty foods have really bad sugars in which are, of course, not good for you. When you eat these fatty foods, here’s a tip for you. The tip is, eat more good fats than bad fats.
Bad Fats: High-fat cuts of meat (beef, lamb, pork), Chicken skin, Whole-fat dairy (milk, cream), Butter, Cheese, Ice cream, Palm/Coconut Oil, Lard, Candy bars, Fried food (fries, chicken nuggets, fried chicken, and breaded fish), Vegetable shortening, Stick margarine, Packaged Snacks (chips, microwaved popcorn, crackers), Commercially Foods (pastries, muffins, cakes, cookies, doughnuts, and pizza dough)
The goodness in these fatty foods will help you to lose weight and maintain a good healthy diet. These ‘good fats’ will be good with foods from the other categories. When you eat these ‘bad sugars,’ eat less. The reason why is because these foods aren’t good for you and will make you feel ill if you eat more of them.
Fruit/Vegetables: carrots, bananas, strawberries, broccoli, Oranges, Apples, Grapefruit, Grapes, Watermelon, Kiwis, Bananas, Melon, Pineapple, Mandarins, Mango, Berries (strawberries, raspberries), Carrots, Tomatoes, Asparagus, Green Beans, Cucumber,Runner Beans
Fruit and Vegetables are the healthiest of the food groups. Fruits and Vegetables can be useful for snacking during the day. Fruit and Vegetables are a good substance to eat healthily. Fruit and Vegetables are good vitamins to keep going and build a good maintenance in your diet.
Dairy/Protein: Meat (beef, chicken, pork, lamb, duck), Fish (salmon, tuna, haddock, mackerel), Nuts (cashew nuts, walnuts), Dairy Products (cheese, milk, eggs, yogurt), Beans (lentils)
Protein is one of the other food groups in the dietary plan. Protein is good for growth and bones in our bodies. In some meats, there have a few of bad sugars in because of the skin that’s outside the meat itself. In some foods in this category has a lot of ‘high-protein’ in which can be a good thing for energy.
Carbohydrates: Bread, Potatoes, Bananas, Beans, Lentils, Cereals, Nuts, Rice, Eggs, Chickpeas, Oats, Parsnips, Pasta, Sweetcorn, Biscuits, Cakes, Cookies, Pizzas, Flour, Chocolates, Candy bars, Pastries, Jellies, Spreads, Sugar
Carbohydrates are a food group that helps us to get energy. Most of the foods in this food group have a lot of bad sugar in. This food group can be underlined in fat, fruit/vegetable and Protein; so that means we have to watch what we eat. In some foods in this food group, they can include some fat in for example potatoes. But in some foods, they can be good for you.
