DINNER: Martha selected Pizza Hut for supper. She had a Cheese Personal Pan Pizza and a 22 oz. Coke Classic to drink.
EVENING SNACK: During her drive home, Martha stopped at Dairy Queen for a small Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Blizzard to reward herself for getting through the day.
Research the number of calories and the amount of fat in these meals and the snack that Martha ate. Use the following website: Click on each of these fast food restaurants to find the nutritional information. The Coke Classic is not listed on the Pizza Hut site; but this information can be found on the Burger King site.
A. Research and record the number of calories and the number of grams of fat present in each menu item that Martha ate. Use the template provided to record your data. Add up the total calories and the total fat grams for each meal and snack. Then calculate Martha's total calories and her total fat grams for the day. Compare your totals to the recommendations for calories and fat for Martha.
B. Identify how the amount of calories and fat in Martha’s fast food choices pose a health concern for her? If Martha ate this way for one week how much weight would she gain or lose? (You did a similar calculation back in Assignment 1, so refer back if you need directions). Identify some of the mistakes she made in her food selections.
C. Help Martha select more wisely. Using the same website ( ) plan three meals for Martha using the restaurants that provide their nutrition information. Martha does not need an evening snack. However Martha does need a minimum of 1500 calories to meet her nutrient needs. (Some students think that less is best and want Martha to only eat salads and drink water. We all need foods from each food group to be able to get all of nutrient needs.) Create a table like the one you used in part A to document your food selections. Again add up, record and total the number of calories, and the amount of fat; this time for the healthier menus you selected. Compare your totals to the recommended calories and fat for Martha.
D. Compare your totals to the totals for the actual foods that Martha ate. Were you able to find three fast food meals that kept her closer to her diet recommendations? What makes it difficult to eat wisely when eating out in restaurants? Identify several strategies that anyone could use to be able to make wise food choices when dining out in restaurants.
