Fat Intake Analysis Project

There are four parts to the Fat Intake Analysis Project. Be sure to answer all four parts completely and
thoroughly. Put them all in the same Word document if possible, but do not forget to attach the labels from the
Part 1 and the screen shot from Part 2. Note: Part 1 may involve going to the store
Part 1: Compare regular and reduced-fat or non-fat versions of two food products. Compare calories,
ingredients, and taste. Please include the ingredients and nutrition facts labels.

Part 2: Complete a cardiovascular disease risk assessment at the Mayo Clinic website:
https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/heart-disease/in-depth/heart-disease-risk/itt-20084942.

Post a screen shot of your results. Describe any risk factors that you can reduce or eliminate.

Part 3: Do you eat foods with hydrogenated fats/oils? If so, list at least two and whether the nutrition label
mentions it. (Hint: Unless you make everything from scratch, you probably do.) If you do not, then mention
two common foods that include hydrogenated fats/oils and whether the nutrition label mentions it.

Part 4: The following is found in your patient’s lipid profile blood test:
https://www.healthtestingcenters.com/lipid-profile-blood-test-explained. What is found to be normal, if any?
What is found to be abnormal, if any? What changes could your patient make to possibly improve their
profile?
