Nutrition is a science of the growth, maintenance, health, reproduction, and diseases of an organism from nutrients in food. Food enables the body to make energy, build and maintain tissue, and regulate bodily processes. Each person has individual nutrition needs. Bodyweight and activity level determine how many calories a person uses for energy. Measurements such as TDEE ( total daily energy expenditure) and BMI (body mass index) are good basic standards to judge a person's overall health. A BMI of 18.55-24.9 is considered healthy. Certain things such as muscle mass have to be considered with these measurements.
Life in Hawaii
One of the eight main Hawaiian islands is Oahu. The eastern side of the island is referred to as the windward side. The windward side of Oahu includes the cities of Kailua and Kaneohe. The trade winds blow easterly onto the windward side of the island to the Pali mountains. The western side of the island is referred to as the leeward side. Honolulu, Waikiki and Pearl Harbor are on the leeward side of the island. The trade winds blow away towards the ocean on the leeward side. The native trees found on Oahu include Plumeria trees, coconut trees, papaya trees, banana trees and Poinciana trees. Hawaii route 61, known as the Pali Highway, goes through the city of Nuuanu and through the Pali tunnels from Honolulu to the windward side of Oahu. Hawaii route 63, called the Likelike highway, goes through Kalihi valley and Wilson tunnels from Honolulu to the windward side of the island. There is also H3 highway which runs from Halawa to marine corps base Hawaii.
