Topic: What Should You Eat?

You probably want to live a long and healthy life on this earth. What are you willing to do to make that possible? Here is an assignment that can improve the quality of what you eat, and hence, the quality of your life. Let’s develop the rudiments of a maintenance diet for you—a desirable, workable, realistic, non-faddish maintenance diet—one you follow permanently. You have several reference sources:

– the Bible’s many prescriptive texts regarding nutrition (ignore “descriptive” texts)

– your textbook’s chapter on biomolecules; how they are built and used

– the course Presentation entitled “Biomolecules and Nutrition”

– trustworthy sources such as

– USDA MyPlate: https://www.choosemyplate.gov/MyPlate-Daily-Checklist

– the Mayo Clinic website. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle

– Very Well website (David Katz’ site): https://www.verywell.com/

– Web MD: http://www.webmd.com/diet/default.htm

The foods you select will contain the same classes of biomolecules that you read about in your textbook: carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, vitamins, and minerals. Use the following procedure to build your diet.
