Macro- and Micronutrients (10pts): Claire is a student, with a full schedule as a double psychology and criminal justice major. On starting college, she really wanted to try becoming a vegetarian. She lives with friends off campus, and makes most of her own meals. a. Review her diet in a typical day and identify the macronutrients that are the largest proportion of each food (or ingredient) with a “1”. If there is another nutrient present in some quantity identify that with a “2”. Put a check under “micronutrients” if you think it is a major source of these. Food item Carbohydrates Lipids Proteins Micronutrients? Cereal with almond milk Brown rice with green pepper and onion Salad with carrots and fat-free dressing Whole wheat toast with jam Snickers bar Sliced orange Pasta with tomato sauce Italian bread with butter and garlic Chocolate chip cookies b. Which type of nutrient/s does Claire eat in abundance? ________________________ c. Which does she not eat enough of? ___________________________ d. Why might her body not be able to synthesize proteins effectively? e. What changes might you recommend Claire make to her diet? 3. How Enzymes Work a. You know that enzymes facilitate and greatly speed up anabolic and catabolic chemical reactions. Working together, have half your group draw out the steps of a catabolic reaction, the other half should draw out the steps of a anabolic reaction. Label your drawings with the type of reaction (catabolic or anabolic), the outcome of the reaction, and in at least once identify what is the enzyme, active sites, substrates and products. Also identify an example of type of biological molecule that could be the substrate/s and the product/s in your reaction. b. What is the enzyme doing that results in a faster reaction? c. Back to Claire…feeling like she’s not getting enough calories, Claire starts adding black beans and cheese to her favorite brown rice dish. But increasingly she feels somewhat sick later with gas, bloating and cramping. She wants to feel better – what do you think might be happening? What do you recommend? d. She takes your advice, but nothing is working. Time to think about going to the doctor and getting a diagnosis. What do you think might be going on?
