1.) Please identify the three macro (big) nutrients and the percentages of each we should eat. Also please indicate how many calories each of the three nutrients provide per gram. (9 pts)

Carbohydrate: 50 to 60%, 4 k/cal per gram. Protien: 30%, 4 k/cal per gram. Fat: 10%, 9 k/cal per gram. 2.) If a person weighs 150 lbs, what is the recommended amount of k/cal they should eat per day? (Show math, 1 points) 150 is weight, 15 k/cal recommended per pound. 150X15=2250 k/cal per day

3.) Below you will see nutrition information about an Angus Bacon & Cheese sandwich at McDonalds. Please illustrate how many k/cal come from each macro nutrient (3pts 1 for each) , and how many total k/cal are in the sandwich(1pt)? Please show all work (4 points for calculations) , and then indicate why this is not the most healthy of nutritional decisions (3pts). (7 total points for the question) There are 63 grams of carbohydrate 45 grams of protein 39 grams of fat Carbohydrate Protein Fat 63x4= 252 45x4= 180 39x9= 351 783 total k/cal

The info in red is just FYI Large Fry 500 Coke 310 Meal total 1593 Nearly half the k/cal comes from fat! This contradicts the recommended proportions of fat we should consume. Typically this sandwich would be consumed with fries and a brown cola, which would really elevate the total number of k/cal from the meal. Furthermore, the meat is fried, which contributes to elevated levels of grease and saturated fat in the meat, elevating cholesterol. With the meal total at 1593 k/cal, that would be in excess of half the k/cal recommended for the person from question #2. 4.) Why is it important to eat breakfast?
