Questions from Students for Exam 2

Dear A,

Thanks for the questions!

I had a couple questions as I was looking over the review packet for the upcoming exam.
1. Does too much protein kill you? It seems that the answer is no, but I am still unsure.
Answer: One can eat a great deal of protein at one time as done by my cousin Billy and Molly Schuyler. But you don’t want to do this on a routine basis – want to balance your Kcal whenever possible.

2. What is the Chemical score for protein?
Answer: It is the mg of the lowest essential amino acid per gram test protein/mg of the this amino acid per gram egg protein – comparing an essential amino to the amount in egg protein. It is expressed as a percent.

3. What are the lipid levels we need to know? this question was associated with the heart attack information. Answer: You really don’t need to know any lipid levels – at least any numeric values.
