You should create your own personal profile based on age, gender and activity level; you may find the total energy need calculation information on page 380 of your textbook for 3rd edition and on page 400 for 4th edition. FYI-I have the 3rd addition and I can send you a picture of the total energy need calculation page if needed?. You can then calculate your standard RDA/DRI’s goal percentages (USDA Food Guide recommendation) for total amount calories, nutrients, minerals and vitamins. You can find this information in the appendix A of your textbook. Then, you should compare the choices you made in 2 days (your actual intake) to the USDA Food Guide recommendation for your age, gender and activity level. You should also calculate the percentage of calories coming from Protein, Fat, and Carbohydrate for your actual intake.
In the 2 day diet diary, after recording and comparing your data, you should answer the questions which are provided to you are on a separate sheet of paper. Your name and the date should be on the pages. All the forms and the report should be send through Blackboard by assignment link.
Your diet analysis and discussion will not be graded on how well you eat. That’s your responsibility. It will be graded on how well you discuss and analyze it.
When recording your nutrient intake, ignore superscripts; values that read <1 = 0; tr (trace) = 0. Do not include more than one decimal column.
Be careful when adding columns, if you find that a nutrient is more than 150% of the DRI, recheck you math. Be precise using decimal points.
Do not get nutrient values off food labels, they are not complete. Look up the food or a similar food in
Appendix A of the text.
If you chose to do a computerized nutrient analysis, you must still complete forms 2, 3, and 4 and answer the questions.
Note: No reference NEEDED and theres a specific chart that needs to be used to input the information which I will attach.
