reading about the six essential nutrient groups. Carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and water are the six essential nutrients found in food. These six Nutrients are very important in one's diet.
Carbohydrates was the first chapter I read this week. In this chapter I learned about the functions of carbohydrates and the primary sources of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates, fats, and proteins provide energy for the human body but carbohydrates are the main source. Carbs are more…
The South Beach Diet is a commercial weight-loss diet created by Dr. Authur Agatston in 2003. The typical eating plan of this diet is low carbohydrates, high protein and healthy fats. This plan makes the diet a nutrient-dense, fiber-rich diet that you can follow for a lifetime of healthy eating. The South Beach Diet does not prevent diabetes, but it does help with weight loss and promotes healthy eating. (3) Type 2 diabetes develops progressively and the body’s cells become less…
The experimental design for our project was to simulate the digestion of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. Using a certain medication called pancreatin we tested its effects on how it was able to break down these macromolecules. pancreatin is a mixture of pancreatic enzymes that help to aid in digestion; the enzymes that are present in this mixture include amylase (breaks down carbohydrates), lipase(breaks down lipids), and protease (breaks down proteins). We had set up trials for these…
you for downloading the book, “Cycling Diet and carb Cycling”.
Carb cycling is an eating plan that alternates between high carbohydrates and low carbohydrates days. This has been shown to promote weight loss and muscle growth. Carbohydrates, more than any other food group, have a large effect on how our body performs and looks. Contrary to popular belief, limiting carbohydrates intake might have a negative effect on your overall health.
The cycling diet has reward meals, or reward days where…
The main substances found in all living organisms are a mix of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. Each of these substances has a different niche as a part of the body, and all of them must either come from the diet or be created using other chemicals in the body.
Functions of Carbs
Carbohydrates are the preferred source of energy for most of the tissues in the body, including the nervous system and the heart. Carbohydrates from the diet are converted into glucose, which can…
discuss the following
Discussing structure the needs and food sources.
nutrition is a key part of life and to have a good balance of diet will mean healthy living and good long life
Roles within the Body,
Carbohydrate is the main food source for the body, it provides energy/fuel for physical activity, organ function and brain function also a energy storage compound and components of the cell

slower than a food with glucose itself.
An improvement in diet is crucial for diabetics. Typical meal plans include less than 30% of calories be from fat, 50-60 calories from carbohydrates, and 10-20% of their calories from protein (Adamec, 2011). Anna clearly wasn’t balancing these molecules, considering glucose (carbohydrate) was they only one out of the three to test positive. While taking these molecules along with lipids…
Diet has become one of the most employed methods to moderate a persons size. In addition a low carbohydrate diet. The Atkins diet is a low carb diet formulated by Dr. Robert Atkins who was an American physician and cardiologist. This Atkins diet was based on a diet which was issued in the Journal of American Medical Association which Dr. Atkins himself engaged to handle his obesity.
The Atkins diet which is more officially known as Atkins Nutritional Approach counterbalanced the immediate…

These molecules have essential functions like as source of energy, materials for building new body mass such as muscles, and other molecules with essential functions like hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood.
These biomolecules are carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nuclei acids.
Biomolecules are called polymers (large molecules) which are composed of smaller molecules known as monomers.
11.1 Elements Present in Biomolecules
Biomolecules are organic compounds, thus they are composed…
