Question;Nutritional;Analysis;Unit I;Assessment;Introduction;In Chapters 3 and 4 of the textbook, you learned that the body needs;various macro and micronutrients in order to function properly. You also;learned about cellular metabolism and what the human body uses as a fuel;source. This all seems simple at first glance, however, it can be difficult to;determine whether or not we are getting what our body needs. Even when we know;what our body needs, it becomes even more difficult to make sure we are;supplying our body with those needs. The car you drive most probably requires;gasoline in order to function properly. When you need to go somewhere, you make;sure you have enough gasoline in the tank to reach your destination. If you do;not, you probably stop at a gas station and fill your car?s tank with gas. You;do not pour cola in the tank or jelly donuts, you put gas because that is what;it needs. Why do we put cola and jelly donuts in our bodies when we do not need;them? Often time, it is difficult to determine what is in the foods that we;eat. Sometimes it is hard to determine if the food contains the correct;nutrients or processed foods that our body does not need. This lab exercise;will help you learn how to read nutritional labels and determine what your body;needs to function properly.;Objectives;1.;Analyze nutritional information based on;what the body needs to function properly.;2.;Calculate BMR, BMI, and caloric burn.;Materials;You will not need;any extra materials other than your textbook and your computer (with internet;access) to complete this lab.;Directions;?;Type or paste all answers directly on this;data sheet.;?;Use the following nutritional label and;answer the questions that follow.

Type the;information from above into the appropriate spaces, and then click: Calculate;BMR. Your BMR will appear directly above the information that you input, it is;in a green box.;3.;What is your BMR?;Just;below the BMR, click on Daily Caloric Needs. Use the information in the box for;the Harris Benedict Formula.

Prior to completing this part of the lab, you will;need to write down everything that you eat and drink for an entire day. Make;sure you record everything, and divide the foods into breakfast, lunch, dinner;and snacks.
