Q.8- Briefly explain the effects of diet on performance.

Ans: An active lifestyle and exercise routine, along with eating well, is the best way to stay healthy. Eating a good diet with enough fluids can help provide the energy you need to finish a race or just enjoy a casual sport or activity. You are more likely to be tired and perform poorly during sports when you do not get enough calories, carbohydrates, fluids, vitamins, iron and other minerals, and protein.

Daily Training Diet Requirements

1.)    Enhance adaptation and recovery between training sessions.

2.)    Promote the short and long-term health of athlets.

3.)    Provide adequate fluids to ensure maximum hydration before, during and after exercise.

4.)    Provide enough energy and nutrients to meet the demands of tainting and exercise.


In your diet, include a wide variety of foods like wholegrain bread and cereals, vegetable (particularly leafy green varieties), fruits, lean meat and low-fat dairy products to enhance long term nutrition habits and behaviors. To know the role of particular diet, it would be better to know the role of essential nutrients on performance. These essential nutrients are described below:


Proteins are a part of our tissues including body fluids such as blood, they are needed for repair and maintenance of body tissues. Proteins are essential for muscular development. All sportsmen require a good amount of protein in their diets. However, sportsmen like boxers and wrestlers require more proteins due to wear and tear of tissues.


Fats are composed of fatty acids. These are a better sources of energy. Fat Provides heat end energy to the body. Athletes and sportsmen require fat from light to moderate proportions, because fat is a source of fuel or energy for the body.

            However, high jumpers or gymnasts require only minimum amount of fat, because the extra weight can hinder their performance.


Carbohydrates are specially voluble food when a considerate amount of muscular work to be undertaken. Carbohydrate is an essential component of a sportsman’s diet because less intake of carbohydrates can result in exhaustion. Carbohydrates also provide strength and fuel for muscles. Therefore, an athlete’s diet should be rich in carbohydrates.


            Vitamins accelerate the vitality, lightness, buoyancy and resistance of the body. Vitamins are essential for normal functioning of the body and good performance in sports. For example, Vitamin E helps in the treatment of heart diseases. Similarly, Vitamin C helps in the treatment of wounds.

            The three Vitamins which have proved significantly are

                        Vitamin “B-Complex”.  Deficiency of vitamin “B-Complex” has shown the decrease on the sports performance. Studies related to excess amount of Vitamin “B-complex” intake show both the improvement in performance and no influence on performance. So, there is further need for research to know the effect of this vitamin on the performance.

                        Vitamin “C”. Low level of Vitamin ‘C’ intake does not reduce the work performance significantly. Approximately,60 mg of Vitamin ‘C’ intake by non athletes and 300 mg to 500 mg intake by successful athletes do not have any harmful effect on kidneys.

                        Vitamin ‘E’.  Vitamin ‘E’ has been claimed to have beneficial effects in the treatment of many diseases and specially heart diseases. Studies conducted on the use of vitamin ‘E’ have shown little or no effect on the performance.


            In the diet of a sportsperson water is required as a solvent, a transport medium, a substrate in hydrolytic reactions and for lubrication. Water is an essential component of diet. Loss of water in the body can lead to nervous system disorder, headache and dizziness, However, excess amount of water does not show any improvement in performance. Thus every athlete/sportsperson should consume a well-balanced diet incorporating all essential nutrients.


Minerals are required in a sportsperson’s body for various functions. Sportsperson’s body requires essential minerals like iodine, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus etc. During sports performance, sweating can reduce the amount of Sodium from the body. It can be compensated by the intake of salt. However, excessive intake of salt can lead to Potassium loss or water retention. Iodine is also required for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland.


Q.9- What do you mean by healthy weight? Discuss about the method to control healthy body weight for lifetime.

Ans: Weight is a tough mass. The health benefits of staying at a healthy weight are huge and well worth effort. It helps is lowering the risk of heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.

According to national Institute of Health “ A healthy weight is considered to be one that is between 19 and 25 (BMI). If the BMI is between 25-29 an adult is considered overweight. If the BMI is 30 or greater, the person is considered to be obese”.

Method To Calculate BMI

CBSE Class 12 Physical Education Sports and Nutrition Worksheet

Methods to control Healthy Body Weight

  1. Regular Daily Exercise: Exercise burns excessive calories or fat stored in the body. If consumption of calories is less than the numbers of calories burnt by the body, then it will be bad to weight lose. Aerobic exercise should be done.
  2. Set Small Goals: If one tries to lose too much weight too soon, then the person is likely to get demotivated. Therefore, it is important that small and realistic goals should be set in. Achievement of these goals further motivates the individual to lose weight.
  3. Cut Your Calories: keep a plan ready to get back on the track if your body weight begins to exceed the required level. It is a simple plan to follow. Just cut or subtract only 100 calories a day. In this way, you can return to your goal weight.
  4. Avoid junk food and Fizzy drinks: Consumption of junk food (Pizza, burger etc.) items immediately leads to weight gain. Therefore, to control weight consumption of junk food should be avoided. Consumption of fizzy drinks such as soft drinks and hard drinks have high sugar content. Therefore, consuming these drinks leads to weight gain. Instead, one can drinks lemon water which is a natural drinks
  5. Adopt a healthy life style: Instead of being lazy, we should try to be active. It works wonders in controlling weight. Use stairs instead of elevators or escalators; Walk to a nereby shop instead of using automobile; play outdoor games instead of computer games- all this contributes to healthy lifestyle.
  6. Adopt Alcohol, Smoking and Drugs: Alcohol, smoking and drugs always tend to increase weight. Alcohol is directly absorbed from the stomach in the blood stream and easily stored as fat. It is also applicable in case of smoking and drugs. So, never use such things, if you want to lose weight.
  7. Do not Overeat: One should not overeat. You should eat the food according to the requirement of your body. Suppose you require 2000 calories per day, then you should take the food that  consists of only 2000 calories. If you take 2100 calories per day, the 100 calories will be accumulated daily as fat in your body. So, you should avoid overeating.
  8. Don’t Skip Meals: Never skip your meals, such as breakfast, lunch and dinner as far as possible. If you skip your meal, the next time you will definitely do overeating which may lead to obesity. In fact, skipping meals increases hunger and it results in greater food consumption next time.
  9. Yoga exercises: Yoga exercises are also helpful both for mind and body. Yogic exercises help to reduce weight. In fact, this power yoga is the latest craze. Mediativeasanas also help in relieving the stress and tension.


Q.10- Explain in detail various pitfalls of Dieting.

Ans: The main major pitfalls of dieting are given below:

(1)    Most of the persons who go on dieting usually underestimate the number of calories they consume. So, it is essential to be more aware about the number of calories you take in your diet.

(3)    If you reduce more intake of calories it will produce, a huge weight loss. It can be dangerous for you. It will definitely lower your metabolism and as a result of it your body weight will not be reduced properly.

(4)    Generally some nutrients like carbohydrates and fats are restricted in dieting. In reality your body needs all types nutrients. If you don’t take all the nutrients in required amounts amounts your proper functioning will be impaired.


Q.11- What do you mean by Food Intolerance? Explain the causes, symptoms and management of food Intolerance and detail

Ans: Food intolerance means when an individual cannot digest certain food properly. It is becoming one of the most likely reasons for ill health today. Food intolerance is often confused with food allergy, but these are both very different. Food intolerance basically affects the digestive system and causes, diarrohea, bloating, stomach cramps and celiac disease.

Q.12- What do you mean by food myths? Explain any five food myths prevailing in contemporary society.

Ans : Food myths are things which are repeated sometimes so much that we are inclined to believe they are true, e.g., high protein diets cause ketosis which reduces hunger.

1.) Drinking while eating makes you fat: The actual fact behind this misconception is that enzymes and their digestive juices will be diluted by drinking water while eating. It will slow down your digestion which may lead to excess body fat. In contrary, there is a scientific fact that drinking water while eating improves digestion.

2.) Fat-free products will help you to Lose weight:  If you take at free labeled products they can lead to weight gain. In fact, these foods have more calories. Approximately, these products have same number of calories (may be slightly less) in comparison to other regular food.

3.) Starve yourself if you want to lose weight:  Eating a good diet is more important than not to eat when you are on a weight loss programme. Include such food items in your diet which suppress appetite and increase metabolism so that your don’t eat too much. So, there is no need to starve yourself if you want to lose weight.

4.) Exercise makes you to eat more: Exercises burn calories which may increase your hunger. Research studies conducted in this area have not shown that the individual who do exercise, consume more calories than those who don’t exercise. So there is no truth in this statement.

5.) Eggs increase cholesterol levels so avoid them: There is no doubt that eggs are good source of health. An egg provides you various nutrients such as protein, vitamin A, B, D, Zinc, Iron, Calcium and Phosphorus etc. It is as per daily requirement of cholesterol by our bodies. So, if  you take one egg daily there is no problem of cholesterol level.
