Step 1: Using the following Case Study, create a meal plan.
Jackie is a healthy women. She is 45 years old and 5’7″ tall. Jackie’s current weight is 160 lbs. She exercises 4-5 times per week but is struggling to meet her goal weight. Jackie is seeking your clinical advice to lose 15 lbs in 3 months. Her target weight goal is 145 lbs.
Write a basic meal plan for your client. (At least 4 days of food plan to help Jackie get started)
- Include how many calories each day she will need to consume to lose 1-2 lbs each week. I expect actual numbers you can back up (what are the specific numbers for our client Jackie? I have attached some help)
- Calculate her complete macro-nutrient breakdown including; total carb consumption, total fat consumption, total protein consumption
- Explain the rationale for all of your choices (The chapter 10 slides will help especially 21-34) What is her energy requirement to stay the same (EER)?. How many calories does she have to reduce to get to her goal? Please remember Jackie is your client not a dietitian or nutritionist.
