7 WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT MACRONUTRIENTS In this activity, you will be organized into groups of three. Each group will receive a foam board with the macronutrients as HEADINGS for three different categories. There will be fifteen characteristics of macronutrients; your group must discuss were all fifteen will be categorized based on the characteristic matching the macronutrient. Fats Carbohydrates Proteins

8 FatsCarbohydratesProteins Supplies 9 calories per gram Supplies 4 calories per gram Carries vitamins A, D, E, & K Converts into glucose; if not used turned into glycogen & stored in adipose tissue Made of chains of building blocks known as amino acids (20 total & 9 essential) A form of slow burning energy 55-65% of daily calories Build new tissue during important growing parts of life Surrounds and cushions vital organs Body’s main source of energy Excessive amounts are converted to be fat for storage Two classifications (saturated & unsaturated) Two Classifications (Simple & Complex) Two classifications: (complete & Incomplete)

9 Let’s Review: Each of you have three different color note cards. Each color represents one of the macronutrients: Protein, Fat, and Carbohydrates. Blue: Carbohydrates Green: Protein Yellow: Fats I’ll ask a question; you will respond with raising the color note card that you believe is the correct answer. HEALTHY EATING-MACRONUTRIENTS REVIEW
