ANSWERS: 1. Jim needs to eat 2200 calories a day. His training regimen suggests 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fat. How many grams of carbs, protein and fat is that? a. 2200 calories x 40% = calories from carbs 2200 calories x 40% = 880 calories b. 2200 calories x 30% = calories from protein 2200 calories x 30% = 660 calories c. 2200 calories x 30% = calories from fat 2200 calories x 30% = 660 calories d. Double check this by adding all the calories together: 880+660+660 = 2200 e. 880 calories from carbs / 4 calories/gram = grams of carbs 880 calories from carbs / 4 calories/gram = 220 grams of carbs
