NUTRITION 130 Fall 2008 ASSIGNMENT # 3 Part I Determination of your physical activity factor (PA) as a multiple of your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) There are several ways to determine total daily energy expenditure [See Ch. 8] . One of these is to calculate an activity factor for all your physical activities (very light, light, moderate, and heavy) for 24 hours, then multiply this factor by your basal metabolic rate (BMR). This will give you an estimate of your total energy (calorie) needs for one day. You can then compare this with the total calorie intake you calculated from your diet record (Assignment #2) and determine whether your energy consumption is below, equal to or exceeds your energy needs. Use Tables 3 and 4 from Assignment #1 as the base for this assignment. A. Typical Weekday Physical Activity Summary (based on Table 3, assignment # 1) Day Activity Time (T=minutes) Factor (F) T x F Example: Sleep 450 minutes 0.9 = 405 (450 x 0.9) Sleep _675___ minutes 0.9 = __607.5___ Very Light: _575_____ minutes 1.5 = __862.5___ Light: __140____ minutes 2.5 = __350___ Moderate: ___50___ minutes 5.0 = ___250__ Heavy:

    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.
