Question Details

(Solved by Expert Tutors) Clara is a College student. She is 5?4? and weighs 170 lbs. Clara?s


entire family is overweight and her father was diagnosed with diabetes past month. Her uncle had been suffering from diabetes since he was eight years old. Clara fears that if she does not change her diet she may develop diabetes as well.

On an average day Clara eats two jelly doughnuts for breakfast, chicken nuggets for lunch and sweet and sour sauce and a large soda for lunch, and goes to the drive-through to grab a super-sized burger, fries, and a large cola. She usually snacks on jellybeans during the day and is always sipping on a cola.

Clara is concerned about her diet and decides to ask her friend Mary, nutrition major, for advice. Mary gives Clara some suggestions. First she tells Clara that, while her diet is very high fat, it is also very high carbohydrate. ?I should try that diet advertised on TV. If I cut all carbohydrates I can lose 50 lbs in this month!? Clara announces. Mary rolls he dyes. Mary explains that complex carbohydrates are good, but too much simple sugar is not. Mary tells Clara that she should snack on fresh fruits instead of jellybeans, and eat more starch and fiber. Plain baked potatoes (instead of fries) and fortified cereals (instead pf high fat doughnuts) would be a lot healthier. Small changes like these could improve her diet dramatically.


Try not drinking so much soda,? Mary suggests. ?Bottled water or a glass of milk would be much more beneficial.? ?I can?t drink milk!? Clara says. ?Last time I had a glass of milk my stomach hurt for hours. I think I?m lactose intolerant since it runs in the family.?

Clara thanks Mary for the advice and goes home to plan a healthy new diet.
