Example: 82 g sugar x 4 kcals/g = (328 kcals sugar) / (1,333 Total Kcals) x 100 = 24.6% (2 points) Your Work:71 g sugar x 4 kcals= (284 kcals sugar) / (1562 Total Kcals) x 100 =18.2 % Answer: 18.2% 12. A) Evaluate your sugar intake. Are you consuming more or less sugar than you realized? What foods or beverages made the difference? Is this something you’re concerned about? Why or why not? B) Identify at least one SPECIFIC and measurable improvement in regards to your added sugar intake that you’re willing to make starting this week. . A measurable goal usually has numbers and/or a time frame in it (i.e. “For Halloween, I stocked up on candy bars for trick-or-treaters. I still have a lot left over and I tend to eat them when I’m bored or watching TV at night. My goal is to either give away or throw away 90% of them this week and help eliminate the temptation to snack on them unconsciously” ). (2 points) Personal Evaluation: By looking at this I see the soda I use when I drink run is giving me way to many added sugars. This report shows me what I need to cut out to lower it and get it down to 10% Specific Goal: To cut out soda all together and find something else to mix drinks if I choose to drink. By doing this I should only be consuming 1/3 of the sugar and will lower my intake by eliminating soda I cut back an average of 40 g sugar a day. 13.FIBER is a complex carbohydrate that helps promote satiety (fullness). Even though it’s not absorbed and used as an energy source, it supports GI health and bowel regularity and may help reduce blood cholesterol. The daily recommendation for fiber intake for adults is 25 - 38 grams per day (the upper limit (UL) is 40 grams/day). Refer to your Actual Intakes vs. Recommended Intakes Bar Graph . A) How many GRAMS of fiber did you consume on average per day? B) What PERCENT of the recommendation does this represent? Example = 16.25 g Fiber, 61% . (1 point) Grams of Fiber = 6.17 Percent of Recommendation = 19% 14. Whole grains are an excellent source of fiber (refer to pages 140 – 141 or your textbook for other high-fiber foods). Most Americans eat less than 1-ounce of whole grains per day. Only 5% meet the recommendation (about 3-ounce

    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.
