6. Determine what PERCENTAGE of your daily kcals came from lipid by EITHER listing the number listed on your Calorie and Fat Sources Report (Sources of CaloriesBox)OR by dividing your ACTUAL intake of fat (in kcals) by your TOTAL daily kcals. Example: 39.5 g Fat x 9 kcals
/g = 356 kcals
 from Fat /1333 total kcals
 = 26% . (1 point) Ans
wer: 30% 7. How did your intake compare to the Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range (AMDR) for Lipid? (Choose your answer and delete the rest). (1 point) MET the Recommendation (20% - 35% of kcals

A diet high in SATURATED or TRANS FAT tends to increase the amount of LDL cholesterol that our bodies make. High levels of LDL are associated with a higher risk of hypertension (high blood pressure) and heart disease. TRANS FAT also appears to decrease HDL cholesterol (the “good” cholesterol made by the body which helps protect against heart disease). Replacing SATURATED and TRANS FATS with MONOUNSATURATED and POLYUNSATURATED FATS helps to reduce LDL cholesterol and lower the risk for hypertension and heart disease. 9. Refer to the chart on your Calorie and Fat Sources Report (‘Source of Fat’ Box). What TYPE of fat accounted for the HIGHEST percentage of your total fat intake? List the type of fat and percentage. Example: Saturated Fat = 49%. (1 point) Ans
wer: Saturated Fat = 64% 10. List 2 food sources of SATURATED FAT or TRANS FAT from your All Nutrients Spreadsheet (Fat-S (g) and Fat-T (g) Columns). If you didn’t

    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.
