Do our students eat well?
What types of foods do you eat?How often should you eat during the day?
We made our students answer these two basic questions to let us know if their eatinghabits are correct.To this end, our students wrote down everything they ate for a week: type of food, grams,calories and how often they ate daily. This study was carried out with a sample of 52 students aged between 15 and 16. We understand the difficulty of this job. It is not easy to calculate exactly howmany grams of each type of food are eaten for each meal, so these calculations were figured out byour students, getting perhaps a considerable margin of error, bigger than expected.In any case, we accomplished the main aim of this study, which was raising awarenessamong our students; for instance, they learnt that it is more convenient to eat five times a day insmall quantities rather than doing it just twice in bigger amounts. They also know now howimportant it is to follow a balanced diet in terms of nutrients, i.e., 60% carbohydrate, 25% fat and15% protein.
What are our students like?

Basal Metabolism is the necessary energy for living without making any effort or task. But,if we walk, run, think, play the guitar, eat… we will need more energy. So, Basal Metabolism isn´tenough information to know how much energy our body needs.
