See the attachment.

Nutrition education programs, which teach their clients how to lose weight or reduce cholesterol levels through better eating patterns, have been growing in popularity. The nurse in charge of one such program at a local hospital wanted to know whether the programs actually work. A random sample of 33 clients who attended a nutrition education program for those with elevated cholesterol levels was drawn. The study recorded the weight, cholesterol level, total dietary fat intake per average day, total dietary cholesterol intake per average day, and percent of daily calories from fat. These data were gathered before and three months after the program. The researchers also determined the gender, age, and height of the clients.

The data are as follows:
Gender (1=female; 2=male), Age, Height (in meters), Weight, before and after (in kilograms), Cholesterol level, before and after, Total dietary fat intake per average day, before and after (in grams), Dietary cholesterol intake per average day, before and after (in milligrams), Percent daily calories from fat, before and after.

Answer the following Questions:
1. In terms of each of weight, cholesterol level, fat intake, cholesterol intake, and calories from fat, is the program a success?

2. Does gender affect the amount of reduction in each of weight, cholesterol level, fat intake, cholesterol intake, and calories from fat?
