My question?
Case studies are also required
5 case studies based on common ailments or conditions with a consultation, current food log, new improved diet for 14 days, feed back ect. marked as pass/ fail
Does this mean I work out a diet plan with the correct amount 55% carbohydrates, 15% protein and 30% fat? for my client?
Ladies 1300 calories?
Males 1800 calories?

From a personal basis, I could not eat 55% carbs in a day - I try to keep well below 30%.
If you don't understand the question - ask your Tutor.

I agree 55% carbs is way too high. Although I guess it depends what sort of carbs........ Where did you get that figure from? And the calories look way too low....even for healthy weight reduction....
