DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORTS

Introduction

         Health awareness develops the healthy habits, attitudes, physical efficiency & mental health etc. For balanced diet, health awareness is also required for optimum health. The optimal diet for most of sports would have 60 % to 70 % of total energy required from Carbohydrates about 72 % from protein and rest from fat. Fat consumption should not be greater than 30 %g the total energy intake. Protein is made up of Carbon, Hydrogen, and Phosphorus by their chemical composition. Protein is mainly required for body building nutrient high-quality protein is generally animal protein such as eggs, milk and meat. It increases extra calories and necessary amino acids for health. Carbohydrates are chemical compounds containing Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen, sugar and starches. The Carbohydrates break down quickly and easily in the digestive system, forms the basic fuel of glucose. It is taken from natural resources such as rice, corn, potatoes, beans, and fruits before, during and after the training. Carbohydrates enter the blood slowly and insulin levels are steady.

         This increases the amount of energy available from the carbohydrates and reduces the amount stored fat. We should be aware about communicable diseases that are transmitted by direct contact through air, food, water and sometimes through vectors. We have to take care of health precaution from Cholera, Tuberculosis, and Diphtheria, Influenza and Hepatitis.

         I express my sense of gratitude to the Management of Mahatma Gandhi Vidyamandir, Nashik, UGC, Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune and CDC of the college for their help, guidance and support.

         I am thankful to the Principal Dr. U. S. Deore without whose support, help, inspiration and guidance this grant success of the department would not be achieved.
