Assignment:

Analysis of Reports

Answer questions below for Carbohydrates use the outline format to answer the questions. This makes it easier for me to know when you are answering each specific question. However, use complete sentences when required, (not just “yes” or “no” responses to the question or listing a percent to answer) and use 12-point font, and double space typed answers. If you are not using this form, you cannot just answer the questions, you must first retype the question, then answer.

Handwritten answers will receive a zero – you must type the response.When typing your response, do not use “carbs”, you must use “carbohydrates”.

REMBER: In order to get the requested averages, you need to add up each day and divide by the number of days.

Carbohydrate ( points)

  1. What is your Total sugar intake in grams (See complete report in Livestrong.com (what you submitted for the Meal Summary) for the 3 days)? (3 points)
