Does anyone know how to do the template with the lab?

Template (with some advice) for NAA 2
 
Step 1
Image 1: food item with student's name affixed somewhere on the container
Image 2: food item's nutrition label with the values clearly visible
 
Step 2
Carbohydrates: #g
Lipids: #g
Protein: #g
 
Step 3
Macronutrient kcals: #g * #kcals/g (this information requires reading the book/slides, it is not on the food label)
As there are three macronutrients to calculate, there should be three lines of macronutrient calculations
Total kcals per serving: sum of macronutrient kcals
 
Step 4
Total kcals consumed: total kcals per serving * number of servings consumed in one sitting (do NOT use the number on the package unless you actually consume the entire package in one sitting, as this does not accurately reflect your real-life scenario, obviously excessive calculations will be marked as incorrect, such as eating 28 servings of peanut butter in one sitting)
 
If only one serving of the food item is actually consumed, do not omit this step, make it clear and provide the calculation (whether you are lying or not is your problem, as this assignment is to help you actually understand what you are putting into your body, energy-wise, so my advice is to not be lary and take the time to measure the serving size for this one assignment, as depending on the food you actually eat, you may learn something that may save your health in the future)
 
Step 5
Difference = (kcals calculated * serving size) - (kcals on label * serving size)
This step is to help you understand how many "hidden calories" you are actually eating based on any misrepresentation of the label
 
 
Step 6
What did you learn? Are you making any changes based on the info? Will you eat more/less/no more of the food?
 
Note: fiber, a subcategory of carbohydrates, is a substance that may yield between 0 to 2 kcals/g, depending on the type of fiber in the food, microflora activity, and GI transit time. As most food labels currently do not distinguish between insoluble and soluble fiber, asking students to calculate an EXACT value would be ludicrous. As such, understand that this assignment is to provide an appropriate approximation based on the information provided, and students will not be asked to calculate fiber (for those that wish to know, understand that you would subtract the grams of fiber from the total grams of carbohydrates before multiplying by its kcal value [and this is only if the fiber is totally "unusable"] to get a more accurate number of total kcals from carbohydrates).
 
For students that wish to delve deeper and understand the disparity in caloric values, further investigation into topics far beyond the level of this class would be required, such as methods of measurement, types of transporters in the gut, conflicting and diminishing absorption rates, etc. In short, do not crack your head on this assignment trying to understand WHY there may be such a disparity between the food label and what you calculated, but rather, simply understand that there is typically a disparity, and that it does play a role in the current paradigm of energy balance in the body.
 
 
Step 1: Select a food item that has at least 1 gram of each macronutrient.
On the same document that will contain the rest of the steps completed, provide two images: the first image should display the name of the food item with a clearly visible view of the students name attached (or written) somewhere on the food container (post-it notes should suffice as long as the name is clearly visible), and the second image should display the nutritional data (total calories and grams of carbohydrates, lipids and protein at a minimum) of the food from the same container.
 
The images are to NOT originate from the web, the student is to actually possess the food item and take an image of it. Do NOT insert text into the picture, actually use a writing utensil and either arhe on the food container, or use a sticky note (do not cover the important information, such as the name of the food tem, or the food label).
 
Step 2: Identity the total number of grams of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins per serving of the food
 
Step 3: Multiply the grams for each macronutrient by the appropriate calorie value, these are the "per serving" values. Add these values to obtain the calories per serving.
 
Do not use the calories provided on the label as a calculated answer without demonstrating that the values on the food label indeed calculates to the value provided. This will be considered wrong as the point of the exercise is to analyze the total caloric count utilizing the values given per macronutrient on the nutrition label.
 
Step 4: Multiply the "per serving" values obtained above by the total number of servings that is typically consumed when eating this food in one meal. If only one serving of the food is consumed, demonstrate this, do not simply think that one should presume this. Provide the total at the end.
 
Step 5: Compare the calculated value of the total kcals consumed to the value provided on the label multiplied by the same serving size. Note if there is a caloric difference.
 
Step 6: Briefly (two to three sentences will suffice) discuss the potential future of this food being consumed after analyzing its caloric information, and why it will still be a part of the diet or why it will be omitted.

Lauren is the owner of a busy salon in her town. She has three other hairdressers who work in the salon with her so she also feels a fair degree of responsibility for making sure the business stays busy for everyone. She is a master of her craft and has been at it for over years. Recently she has started to have some aching pain in her shoulder which seems to get aggravated with her long days at work. She is starting to feel concerned that this complaint might interfere with her ability to continue working at a high level with her customers.
Her primary discomfort seems to come on late in the day after a lot of work. Her work involves moving around a fair amount, but she also has to stand in one position behind the chair with her arms elevated for long periods.
 
She has been considering going to see the doctor since this seems to be getting worse. However, she's also very interested in looking at anything that she can do that might address or alleviate the problem so she wouldn't have to see the doctor. She thought massage therapy might be helpful for this problem and is also interested to hear about stretching or exercise options that could be helpful.
  • What are some of the major muscles that are engaged in bringing her arms up into the common position she uses when cutting hair?
  • There is not much space between the underside of the acromion process and the head of the humerus. What are several tissues located in the space that might get pinched when she holds her arms elevated?
