Compare and Contrast Low Carbohydrate Diets versus Low Fat Diets
The two largest and mainstream methods to lose weight are low carbohydrate diets and the low fat diets. The two are complete opposites of one another when it comes to each diet’s food options, the low carbohydrate diet that completely ignores the food pyramid limits that a person can have eating foods that are high in carbohydrates, such as bread, pasta and rice, while the contrary, the low fat diet which ensues the food pyramid…
Station 1 - molecular models
Glucose - C6H12O6
Fructose - C6H12O6
Sucrose - C12H22O11
Station 2 - Taste
2. Glucose - plain, almost like water
Fructose - sweet, like from a fruit
Galactose - slight pungent taste
Maltose - bitter, bad aftertaste
Sucrose - slightly sweet, almost like sugar-water
Lactose - plain, again almost like water
3. Fructose was the sugar which tasted the best because it was sweet, and it tasted like an actual sugar. The other…
of complex carbs that are slowly digested (Brewer, 2013). Incorporating different foods ranked differently on the glycemic index in one’s diet will result in a balanced energy level.
Most carbohydrates are ranked lowly on the glycemic Index (Denton, 2009). As a result of them being ranked so low carbohydrates are the basis of a healthy diet. However, simple carbs are easier to break down…
of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates consumed is converted to glucose and it allows the body to make use of the glucose as a source of energy. However, it is important for the pancreas to release insulin into the bloodstream so that our cells will be able to access the glucose and have it converted to energy. The problem lies when we take too much carbohydrate in our body- making us fat and even suffer from blood sugar level swings.
The Ketogenic Lifestyle revolves around eating a low carbohydrate…
Low carbohydrate diets have become a popular trend but remain controversial of whether these diets actually work. Personally, I did not know a whole lot about low carbohydrate diets, but in doing some research, I have learned a few important facts about this type of diet. Carbohydrates are broken down and absorbed or digested as either starches or sugars. The carbohydrates that do not digest or absorb in the body, they are then released out of the body. For example, fiber is one particular…
a.How many grams of carbohydrate did you consume? I consume 107.52 grams of carbohydrate.
b.How many calories does this represent? My gram of carbohydrate represent 64% in calories.
c.It is estimated that you should have at least 130 grams of carbohydrate/day to avoid ketosis.How does your intake compare with this minimum? My intake for my carbohydrate intake compare to the minimum shows in need to implement a low carb diet to avoid ketosis.
d.Look under the source…
diet. Low carbohydrate diets began to appear in the 1970’s, but have been viewed negatively by the majority of the population. Recently, the low-carbohydrate Atkins diet, South Beach diet, and Paleo diet have been gaining popularity. Studies show that these types of diets can be used to lose weight healthily and quickly. However, the most of the general public still believes that low carbohydrate diets are unhealthy. This is a large and potentially harmful misconception. Low carbohydrate diets,…
whether carbohydrates or fats are being burned during which stage of exercise. To start off with the subject had to find her metabolic resting rate. In this stage the subjects respiratory quotient (R.Q) was 0.92. Examining the chart the carbohydrate percentage is higher than the fat percentage making this stage burn carbohydrates. The next stage the subject performed was low intensity. The respiratory quotient for this exercise was 0.90. Looking at the fat percentage and the carbohydrate…
being used whether fats or carbohydrates based on what it is closest to. The range is .7 (fats) to 1.0 (carbohydrates).
2. Does RER change with onset of exercise? Does RER change during steady-state over time? What does RER tell us about substrate utilization over time if workload is held constant?
RER decreases with the onset of exercise. Longer moderately intense exercise means your body will usually use fats, and shorter high intensity exercises means that carbohydrates will most likely be…
Carbohydrates are probably the most important macronutrient. Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of fuel.
A journal published in Clinical Psychiatry News by Heidi Splete, a medical journalist, discussed a study on low-carbohydrate dieters. Two people in the study died. They had suffered heart failures due to malnutrition. Protein deficiency is another example of how malnutrition can affect the body’s organs. Protein is an important macronutrient to the body. Protein supports the growth of…
