I could use some help on this please!

Fat Gram calculator

Design a program that asks for the number of fat grams and calories in a food item. Validate the input as follows:

- Make sure the number of fat grams and calories are not less than 0.
- According to nutritional formulats, the number of calories cannot exceed fat grams * 9. Make sure the number of calories entered is not greater than fat grams * 9.

Once correct data has been entered, the program should calculate and display the percentage of calories that come from fat. Use the following formula: Percentage of calories from fat = (Fat grams * 9) / calories.

Some nutritionists classify a food as "low fat" if less than 30 percent of its calories come from fat. If the results of this formula are less than 0.3, the program should display a message indicating the food is low in fat.

Seems I am having issues with the while statement or I have this all wrong. I would truly appreciate some suggestions, troubleshooting steps, and resolution to this problem. Please see file attached.

I also seem to be having issues posting my entire project in this topic :S

(Any suggestion as to do that would also be appreciated)

No problem.

Just glancing over your code, you have a lot of extraneous braces, and some semi-colons in incorrect places. Remember that a semi-colon ends a statement, so carefully consider what putting one at the end of a while statement means.

Clean up the braces, check the semi-colons, and be sure to use indentation correctly. It may seem like a small thing, but proper indentation is a powerful tool for making sure that your program structure is correct.
