Hi Jill: Thank you for responding! Yes, you need to account for all macros you eat and try and match your own meals to those in the app. There is a bit of a learning curve to macro tracking, but once you learn how to do it, it gets much easier. And if you can repeat meals during the week, that will help also. And yes, foods like peanut butter that have all 3 macros can make it even trickier. Try choosing foods that are more straight protein + fat or protein + carb, and that can make things easier also. One other thing that can help is to remember that breakfast is a protein + carb + fat, high carb meals are a protein + carb, and low carb meals are a protein + fat. Yes, there will be a few carbs in what you choose for low carb meals, and a bit of fat in what you choose for high carb meals, but these formulas might be helpful as you’re getting started. And we’re adding more meals to the app all of the time, and these are all figured out for you macro-wise. I hope this helps, and please let us know if you have further questions. You can do this!
Used fuel still contains about 96% of its original uranium, of which the fissionable U-235 content has been reduced to less than 1%. About 3% of the used fuel comprises waste products and the remaining 1% is plutonium (Pu) produced while the fuel was in the reactor and not 'burned' then.
Reprocessing separates uranium and plutonium from waste products (and from the fuel assembly cladding) by chopping up the fuel rods and dissolving them in acid to separate the various materials. It enables recycling of the uranium and plutonium into fresh fuel, and produces a significantly reduced amount of waste (compared with treating all used fuel as waste). See page on Processing of Used Nuclear Fuel . The remaining 3% of high-level radioactive wastes (some 750 kg per year from a 1000 MWe reactor) can be stored in liquid form and subsequently solidified.
