The Chemistry of Food – Day 2


Today we completed an activity called 24 Hours of Food. Students went through the past 24 hours of their diet and listed all of the meals, snacks, and drinks that they consumed. Then they looked up the amount of calories in each item. They added up their total calories consumed and compared it to the amount of calories that they estimated that they burned. From there, they were able to estimate the number of calories lost/gained in the past 24 hours, as well as the amount of body fat that they lost or gained.
