You Are What You Eat Energy from Foods Kilocalorie yield from nutrients Lipids = 9 kcal / gram Carbohydrates = 4 kcal / gram Proteins = 4 kcal / gram Measured in kilocalories (kcal) Calculating Kilocalories from Foods 1 cup of whole milk contains: 12 grams (g) of carbohydrates 8 grams (g) of protein 8 grams (g) of fat How many kilocalories (kcal) are in one cup of whole milk? 12 g of carbohydrates x 4 kcals / g = 48 kcal 8 g of protein x 4 kcal / g = 32 kcal 8 g of fat x 9 kcal / g = 72 kcal Total kilocalories : 48 kcal + 32 kcal + 72 kcal = 152 kcal
8 gram fat x 9 kcal / gram = 72 kcal (72 kcal / 152 kcal) x 100 = 48% kcal from fat 1. Fat kcal / cup : 2. Total kcal / cup : (See previous slide) 152 kcal 3. Divide fat kcal by total kcal x 100 What % of kcal in whole milk come from fat?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
