Ahmed has been gaining weight over the las… Show more Case Study: Nutrition- Food Choices and Physical Activity Ahmed has been gaining weight over the last five years in his group home. His doctor has said that he needs to exercise more and consider the six nutrients in his diet or he will become obese. Ahmed is 21, a large man weighing around 220 pounds, who really doesn’t want to be told that he needs to exercise and eat healthy food for his health. He also dislikes fruits and vegetables; he is more into junk foods. In fact, most of his friends encouraged him to try organic food but to no avail. When Ahmed first came to the group home he was much more active than currently. He would go for walks in corniche by himself when the weather was good and he seemed to enjoy that. He also played football every week with the other men in the group home and was very good at it. A year later, Ahmed climbed Jebel Hafeet with one of the staff. Unfortunately, the staff person left his job at the group home about three months later and no one else was interested in taking him hiking. He worked out at the Sports Club for a period of time but he didn’t find other people to work out with him and he quit. We think that Ahmed started eating more food within the next year as he started to gain weight. Tasks/Questions: What are the behaviors that need to be changed? What health promotion actions would help? Based on the above scenario prepare a plan that would prevent him of becoming obese and may lead to other chronic diseases . • Show less
