Imagine a scenario in which you recently attended a friend’s birthday dinner. From the food served at the dinner, list three menu items that might have been present.
Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research on the menu items you selected. Based on your research, respond to the following:
- Identify the food groups that are represented in your menu items.
- Find out how many grams of protein, fat, and carbohydrate are present in a single serving of each item; then calculate the kilocalories that are present in each.
- Identify all the food groups that form a part of a balanced diet along with their sources.
- Assess the approximate amount of protein, fat, and carbohydrate that comprises a balanced diet in different body types. What are the effects of the consumption of each of these on the human body? Why?
