5:11 pm
your body needs. diana>> people try to cut the fat out of their diets... but are they getting enough protein? larry>> siouxland news reporter cat taylor met with a dietician to see why enough protein is an important part of healthy living. "protein really is important in your diet; it's one of the three macronutrients. proteins, carbohydrates, and fats are your main macronutrients which means you need the most of those in your diet. so protein is an important building block especially for bones, muscles, blood, skin, and among other things too." cat taylor siouxland news>> stephanie small is a clinical dietitian at mercy medical center, and she says that there are multiple types of protein,
5:12 pm
but preparation of the protein is important. stephanie small mercy medical center>> ""good protein sources are things like your lean meats: chicken, fish, eggs, nuts, dairy products. those are all good sources of protein." "when you're preparing your protein foods, such as meat, always try to grill or broil or bake your meats and try to avoid frying, when you're adding protein to your diet." cat taylor siouxland news>> small says that protein shakes can be a good idea for some people. stephanie small mercy medical center>> "protein shakes can be a good addition to your diet, as long as you're getting a variety of other foods too. protein shakes are pretty easy on the go types of foods, so if you're having a hard time getting protein in or perhaps if you're vegetarian, sometimes those protein shakes can fill in that gap for getting enough protein." cat taylor siouxland news>> according to small, you can have too much protein and it can be dangerous, so moderation is key. stephanie small mercy medical center>> "overall in general it's just important to have a little bit of everything in moderation. trying to find a diet that you can follow for a lifetime is important because any diet that you go on, once

probably gain the weight back." cat taylor siouxland news>> for siouxland news, i'm cat taylor. diana>> peanuts and peanut butter are another high- protein option for people on meatless diets. kayla>> . we had warm and windy conditions today; will they stick around? i'll have your forecast up next. kayla>> . kayla>> . we had warm and winy ndio toy;ilth sckrod?

5:16 pm
mark. larry>> we're in the final week of the high school football regular season. and that means we have major games with postseas implications. there are several win - or - go - home matchups coming up this
5:17 pm
in sports. it's the final week of the regular season in high school football throughout siouxland. several teams are in the high school playoffs regardless. surprisingly *few* are mathematically eliminated. and we've got several teams on the bubble. our game of the week from two weeks ago whererwestern christian spoiled the undefeated season of hinton continues to have ripple effects. remember each district has usually 7 teams, top four make it in. number one hosts number 4, number 2 hosts number 3. quite frankly my taxes were easier to figugu out than some of these scenarios. but let's try to make some sense of it in lehman's terms. here's what we know: in class 1-a district two ridge view faces western christian this weekend. a win by the
5:18 pm
wolfpack makes them the top seed with home field advantage. if the raptors win, they're the likely two seed which gets them a home game. if 2-6 unity christian upsets hinton ridge view is the one seed. hinton is the one seed if they beat the knights and ridge view wins. meanwhile in class a district 2 this one's a lot more simple to understand. when woodbury central and sioux central match up the team that loses is done for the year. winner makes the playoffs! it's the same situation when sioux *center* visits okoboji in class 2a district one. the winner is the last team in. the team that loses is done for the year. meanwhile in nebraska in class a the top three teams in each district make the playoffs. but if n nfolk falls to kearney this week they could fall to fourth in their district and would hope for one of the four at large bids based on nebraska's point system. they're probably in but it's no sure bet. in c-1 and c-2 it's a little different. each of the 8 district winners gets in plus
5:19 pm
it's not ironclad you feel pretty good about getting in if you're in the top 16. so since pierce cannot win their district which belongs to norfolk catholic that's where they want to be. they are currently in 14th so they can't afford to c-2 battle creek and oakland craig arin. stanton and crofton are firmly on the bubble at 15 and 16. they want toe top 14 though because two district winners are actually ranked behind them! hartington cedar catholic and lutheran high northeast will need wins and help to stay alive. chris>> and as you just heard for the first time this season norfolk is facing the prospect of possibly losing their spot in the drivers seat for a playoff berth. it all happpped because they lost out at north platte friday. norfolk also lost their number 8 ranking as a result. they are our biggest mover in this week's rankings. norfolk catholic beat pierce last week so they stay number one in c-1. the blue jays drop from 9th to completely unranked. battle creek and oakland craig
5:20 pm
hops from 10th to 9th. and in 8-man guardian angelslsnd creighton remain 1-2. on the iowa side absolutely everything siouxland-wise stayed the same. sbl is 9th in 3a. spirit lake is 3rd in 2a. western christian and hinton are 8th and 10th respectively in 1a. west sioux is still 3rd in "a". in 8-man newell fonda, mmc, and gtra remain ranked number one, 3, and 8 respectively. kayla, diana, larry, chris>> . it's going to be a warm eveningg
