Comprehensive Question Set 4

Coach Kazlauskas, the head football coach of your college’s football team, comes into your office and says that his team is not eating well and he thinks it’s hindering their performance. The players are all on a school meal plan so they eat three meals a day in the school’s all-you-can-eat cafeteria. The problem is that they’re just choosing the foods that they like and not making good nutritional choices. Some guys are eating entire meals of fried chicken and other players are loading up on ice cream. Since the school has no budget for a sport nutritionist, he wants you to talk to his players about proper nutrition and to give the players and coaches a few answers to their various food and nutrition questions. Coach Kazlauskashas gathered the entire team in a classroom near your office where they’ll be asking you questions about nutrition.
