This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 4 pages.

1. LIPIDS (dietary fats) and cholesterol are found primarily in oils and animal products. They supply energy (9 kcals per gram), help insulate organs, and are used to make certain compounds like hormones or bile. If you consumed 100 grams of lipid in a day, how many kcals would this convert to? (Choose your answer and delete the rest) (2 points) c) 900 kcals
d 2. The AMDR (Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range) for daily intake of lipids is 20% - 35% of an adult’s calorie needs (see Chapter 2, page 50-51). If Leah requires 2200 kcals per day, how many kcals (and grams) should be coming from lipid sources? (Choose your answer and delete the rest) (2 points) )d) 440 - 770 kcals
 (50 - 86 grams
) For the remaining questions, determine how YOUR average intake of lipid compares to the recommendations. 3. What was your daily AVERAGE intake of fat in GRAMS? (See Actual Intakes vs. Recommended Intakes Bar Graph , Actual Intake Column ). Example: 39.58 grams
 . (1 point) Ans
wer: 54.25 grams
. 4. Refer to your All Nutrients Spreadsheet and determine which DAY (1, 2, or 3) had the LOWEST intake of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fats (the two essential dietary fats). List the DAY and the total amount of these lipids in GRAMS (See “Day Total” in bold at the end of each day in the Omega3 (g) and Omega6 (g) columns). Add up the totals for each day to determine this (Omega 3 + Omega 6). Example: Day 1 = 2.7 grams
 (0.8 + 1.9) . (1 point) Ans
wer: day 1 = 0 grams
 5. Omega-3 fats (also known linolenic acid) and Omega-6 fats (also known as linoleic acid) are essential fatty acids and must be obtained from food. They are precursors to EPA and DHA – which help support and regulate proper function of the immune system, blood clotting, blood pressure, brain development, and vision (see Chapter 5, pages 177, 190-191, 193). Sources of essential fatty acids include vegetable oils, nuts, flaxseed, and fish. For most individuals, the daily recommendation for Omega-3 fats (like EPA and DHA) is 1 - 3 grams per day. The AI for Omega-6 fats is 12 - 17 grams per day. This can be obtained by

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    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.
