Fats and Protein

Slip into the shoes of a Nutritionist when discussing the various types of fats (saturated fats, monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, and trans-fats) with Mrs. Miller, an obese client whose diet lacks adequate protein and nutrients. Mrs. Miller’s diet mainly consists of heavily processed foods and an excessive amount of saturated and trans-fats.

  • Explore the job duties of a Nutritionist on O*NET and by watching the video by the American Dietetic Association before starting this assignment. These resources will provide you with an opportunity to familiarize yourself with specific tasks, abilities, and knowledge necessary for this profession.
  • Next, create a PowerPoint  addressing the following components:
    • Compare and contrast ‘good’ and ‘bad’ fats and analyze their sources.
    • Examine the controversy surrounding fats in our food and explain why ‘good’ fats and lipids should be part of our food choices.
    • Explain the connection between dietary fat, cholesterol, health and disease.
    • Analyze the importance of protein in maintaining a healthy diet.  Why do we need protein and amino acids?  What are the protein recommendations for healthy adults?
    • Design three personalized recommendations on how Mrs. Miller can cut down on saturated and trans-fats and increase consumption of healthier fats.  Include three sources of protein-rich foods, which will not contradict the fat recommendations you suggested.
