Lesson 1.9- Evaluate personal food intake
and related food decisions
(pp370-371) of Biology-McGraw-Hill
I. Personal food intake:
a. Considering the need for the six
major nutrients to be present in our
daily diet, the four food groups help
us choose a well-balanced diet to
meet all of our nutritional needs.
i. Grain products: provide CHO’s
ii. Vegetables and Fruits: provides
water, minerals, vitamins, CHO’s
iii. Milk products: provides protein,
lipids, CHO’s, water and vitamins
iv. Meat and alternatives: provides
II. Assignment: design a meal plan, for

balance of the six major nutrients.
Lesson 1.10- Issues related to digestion
(pp372-373) of Biology-McGraw-Hill
I. Fad diets: Diets or eating plans for the
purpose of losing weight that often fail to
give the dieter a balance of all six major
II. Some fad diets include:
a.Low-CHO diet: The idea is by reducing

for energy. You can eat all the fat and
protein foods you want.
b. Cabbage-soup diet: You can eat all
the cabbage soup you want. The idea
