The amount of fat was 45%. She had only 13% protein and 43% carbs. To figure these out I used the following equations: 323.1 g CHO x 4 Kcals per g = 1292.4 Kcals divided by 3027 = 0.4269 x 100 =42.69 or 43% CHO 100.7 g PRO x 4 Kcals per g = 402.8 Kcals divided by 3027 = 0.1330 x 100 =13.30 or 13% PRO 153 g FAT x 9 Kcals per g =1377 Kcals divided by 3027 = 0.4549 x 100 = 45.49 or 45% Fat b.) \24 hour recall nutrient analysis on www.fitday.com | PROT(g) | | Totals | CAL3027 | FAT/g153.0 | CARBS/g323.1 | PRO/g100.7 | | Coffee, regular | 1 | mug (8 fl. oz.)
For B6 (Pyridoxine), my DRI was 1.3 mg. My intake was 0.8 mg, which is an intake of 60%. A deficiency of B6 vitamins leads to poor growth, skin lesions, decreased immune function, anemia, and neurological symptoms. In order to improve my intake of B6, I could consume more fortified breakfast cereals and also more meat. For B12 (Cabalamin), my DRI was
The fat I consumed on day one was 28% I should consume no more than 35%, I am within the acceptable range. Day two of using the I-profile I was within the acceptable range of lipids, proteins and carbohydrates. My protein was a bit low so I should have eaten more chicken or turkey on this particular day. The third day was the same, I did not eat any breakfast and my protein is 15% the normal range is 10-35%, I should have consumed more meat. I was not surprised by my daily intake of protein because some days I eat lots of meat, and some days I do not eat meat at all or just a small portion of meat.
The RQ was 0.79, which indicates that the 33% of the kcal that the subject was using came from carbohydrates and that 67% of the kcal came from fat. In the 100W stage the volume of carbon dioxide was 4.08L/min and the volume of oxygen consumed was 4.1L/min. The RQ came out o be 0.99, the substrate being used was only carbohydrates at this point. The 200w stage had a carbon dioxide volume of 7.91L/min and a oxygen consumed volume of 6.51L/min. The RQ was 1.2 which indicates that the body is producing more carbon dioxide than the oxygen being consumed.
According to a study (Greener Pastures: How Grass-fed Beef and Milk Contribute to Healthy Eating, 2006), an average amount of heart-healthy EPA/DHA in a serving of grass-fed steak is about 35 mg, while steak from non-pastured cattle had only 18 mg per serving. These days it seems like everything we eat can potentially contribute to causing cancer such as certain oils. Corn and safflower oil contain high amounts of omega-6 fatty acids (cancer-promoting fats). An
I am juicing this way for a detoxifying cleanse of my body and weight lost. The green monster provides me with a daily dose of 26.7 grams of protein, 239.4 grams of carbohydrates, and 8.4 grams of total fat. According to the United States Department of Agriculture I should be having “73 grams of protein, 260 grams of carbohydrates, and between 85-100 grams of total fat” (USDA, 2012). There is a vast difference in macronutrients recommended by the dietary recommended intake (DRI) in comparison to my current green monster juice diet. When I am not on my juice diet I would consume a green monster drink for breakfast, chicken salad for lunch and home cooked dinner to provide a more balanced diet.
