Simon is 26 years old and weighs 154 pounds. A year ago, he decided to stop eating meat because he thought it would make his diet healthier. Now that he is studying nutrition, he has become concerned that his vegetarian diet may not be as healthy as he though. Simon records his food intake for one day and uses an online nutrient analysis program to assess his nutrient intake. His analysis reveals that his diet provides 2900 calories, 78 g of protein, and 43 g of saturated fat.
Does Simon’s diet provide enough protein to meet his RDA of 0.8 g of protein per kilogram of body?
How does the percentage of calories from saturated fat in Simon’s diet compare with recommendations?
