Practice conversions can be found in a document posted in the Lipids folder on e-Learning. Know the AMDR for protein (% of energy intake). Be able to use these numbers in calculations related to sample food intake. 1. A person consumes 350 grams of CHO, 100 g of fat and 80 grams of protein. Calculate the percent of energy coming from fat and protein and compare their intake to the AMDRs for total fat and protein. 2. A person consumes 275 grams of CHO, 150 grams of fat, and 60 grams of protein. Calculate the percent of energy coming from fat and protein and compare their intake to
