Putting It Together: Important Biological Macromolecules

Now that we’ve learned about the different macromolecules our bodies need and use, let’s return to our the questions we asked at the beginning of the modules about healthy diets:

Think about It

  • Is it even possible for a person to cut all carbs out of their diet?
  • Is it actually healthy to remove an entire class of molecules from the diet?
  • Fats and cholesterol are strictly bad—right?


It is tempting to view different topics as completely separate, but in fact the ideas we cover in this course are often connected to one another. If you don’t retain the vocabulary from module to module, those connections can be missed. As you continue on, remember to come back and review the terms you’ve learned in order to increase your depth of knowledge.
