What Am I Eating? Excel Final Project
Ever wonder how much fat is contained in the food that you eat? There are some pretty neat calculators that we can access online to help us track the nutrition and not so nutritious contents of a whole host of foods that we eat.
One, in particular is available at WebMD.com. It's called the WebMD Food-O-Meter. Another great nutritional site is FatSecret.com You can use these sites to get the nutritional data that you will need to complete this project.
