You are what you eat. Living things are complex organisms made up
of various atoms that form proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. People
need to eat proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids (fats) in a healthy
manor to have healthy bodies. Prepare a PowerPoint presentation of 10–12
slides (not including the Title and Reference slides) and include a
minimum of 3 images that explains the roles of proteins, carbohydrates,
and lipids in human bodies, and relate this to good food choices.
Include the following:
What is a protein?
Describe 4 examples of organs or substances made of protein in your
body. Discuss two that are large enough to be seen with the naked eye
and two others that you would need a microscope to see.
Describe high- and low-quality proteins in your diet.
What is a carbohydrate?
What is the difference between starch and cellulose?
Which one can humans digest?
What is a lipid?
What role do lipids play in the body?
Distinguish between saturated and unsaturated fats.
