Question

**Calculate this problem****:**

** Your friend eats 1800
calories per day. **

** If he limits his calories
from fat to 30% per day. How many calories**

** would be from
fat?**

** How many grams of fat
would this be per day?**

** How many calories from
saturated fat would this be per day?**

** How many grams of
saturated fat would this be per day?**

Answer #1

Since 30% of total calories are to come from fat.

Therefore, calories from fat = 30% of total calories = 30*1800/100 = 540 calories

Now, we know 1 g of fat contains 9 calories.

Therefore, 540 calories will be there in 540/9 = 60 g of fat. Hence 60 g of fat per day.

Now, if all the fat that your friend eats is saturated fat then it will be 540 calories per day from saturated fat, and also it will be 60 g of saturated fat per day.

But if your friend follows the recommeded limits which is no more than 7% of the daily calories should come from saturated fat.

Then 7% of total calories = 7*1800/100 = 126 calories from saturated fat per day

Since like normal fat, saturated fat also contains 9 calories per g.

Therefore, grams of staurated fat can be calculated as 126/9 = 14 g of saturated fat per day.

these calories are used in the Thermic Effect of Food?

Suppose you need 2400 Calories per day just to stay at your
present weight. If you went on a strict diet of 2000 Calories per
day, how long would it take you to lose 5 pounds? (1 pound of fat
is the equivalent of about 4100 Calories.)

Now calculate your calories in a method used by Nancy Clark,
Sports Nutritionist, example:
Take your weight = 120lbs as an example
Multiply this 120 lbs. by 10, 120 x 10 = 1200 calories which is
the number of calories your body expends for its BMR - Basal
Metabolic Rate. The BMR is energy needed to sustain the metabolic
activities of the cells and tissues and to maintain circulatory,
respiratory, and gastrointestinal and renal processes....

In this problem you will test the idea that most of the calories
in food product come from fats, carbohydrates, and protein. Find
out how many grams of fats/carbohydrates/protein are in the
following food products (see the “nutritional information” panel on
the product container or look up the info online) per gram. Then
use the following approximate enthalpies of combustion for “fat”,
