I love delicious food and despise anything contrary to that. The one thing that is so dangerous about me loving good food is the fact that, everything that looks good isn’t always good for me, like my mom used to say. In this assignment I am about to see just how good or not good the foods I enjoy are good for me, as I count my calorie intake and grams of fat I ingest daily. I have used three items from breakfast, lunch and dinner to analyze their fat and protein content based on their calories The first item is: 1.

Aunt Jimmie Pan Cake Mix a. It was a jazz box of pancake mix, the fat content was 2% per serving, and 5 grams of protein per serving. After analyzing the fat and the protein contents, based on the calories and the formula used in the text here is what I came up with. Fat Contents Step 1. I multiplied the fat contents by 9: 2 X 9= 18 calories Step 2. Next I divided my answer by the total calories, which was 160, then multiplied the answer by 100: (18/160) X 100 – 0. 1125 x Protein Contents Step 1.

I used the same equation, except for this time I multiplied the protein intents by 4. 5 X 4 = 20 calories Step 2. Divide the answer by the total number of calories, then multiply by 100 again. (20/160) x – 0. 125 x The second item is: 2. Campbell Home Style Chicken Noodle Soup AAA. It was a 10 h oz. Can, the fat contents were 2% per serving, and the protein contents were 3 grams per serving. After analyzing the fat and protein contents based on calories and using the formula in the text here are my answers. Fat Contents Step 1.

Multiply the fat contents by 9: Step 2. Next divide the answer by the total number of calories, which is 60 in this case, then multiply your answer by 100: (18/60) X 100 = 0. 3 x = Step 1. Multiply protein contents by 4: 3 X 4= 12 calories Step 2. Next divide protein contents by the number of calories, which is 60 once again, then multiply the answer by 100: (12/60) X 100 = The third item is: 3. Roger Wood Lumber Jack Smoked Sausage AAA. It was a 4 pound package of sausage, the fat content was 27% per serving, and the protein content was 8 grams per serving.

After analyzing the fat and protein intents based on the calories, along with the formula in the text, here is what I got. Step 1. Multiply the fat contents by 9. 27 x 9 = 243 calories Step 2. Next divide the answer by the total number of calories, which is 210, then multiply the answer by 100: (243/210) X 100 ? 1. 1571428 x 100=115. 74128 or 115. 74% Step 1. Multiply the protein contents by 4 this time 27 x 4 = 108 calories Step 2. Next divide you answer by 210 which is the total calories, then multiply by 100: (108/210) x 100 – 0. 514285714 x 100=51. 4285714 or 51. 43%
