Acceptable Macronutrient Dist

I’m working on a nutrition question and need an explanation to help me learn.

  • What is the AMDR for fat in the diet? (not the definition…looking for the values, adults only)
  • What was your perception of dietary fat before reading this week’s resources (you should be citing the textbook here as that was your main assigned resource- do not use outside sources to answer this question)?
  • How has your perception changed?

Below is a sample one-day menu for Mrs. Smith. Her doctor just told her she is at risk for developing heart disease since her cholesterol is a little high. The doctor has asked her to meet with a registered dietitian to learn more about heart-healthy fats to include and which unhealthy fats to avoid. She hopes to meet with a dietitian next week, but in the meantime, she needs help making these changes.

List five suggestions for Mrs. Smith’s diet. Provide only changes that address the goals (bolded above) with her meal planning as mentioned above. Tell her which food she should omit and with what you would replace it. You may also change portion sizes. Highlight (yellow only please) or bold the item you are changing and then write the change next to that.
