[Get Answer ]-Your Own Nutrition Assessment
Introduction – Analyzing what youhave eaten can give you a better idea of what changes you can make to have ahealthier diet and lifestyle. This assignment is very fun and eye opening. Itcan help you understand if you are in need of a lifestyle change or reassureyou that you are already leading a healthy lifestyle.
To make this project easier tomanage, I have divided into four separate sections with four different rubricscales. You will follow instructions commonly given to clients in a clinical orresearch setting, except that these settings would ask for dietary informationfor 3 or 7 days instead of the 1-day we will use. Using a 1-day analysis doesnot usually represent an individual’s typical nutrient intake over time. It isbetter to look at multiple days because one day you may eat more of one foodgroup and less of another and then the next day, you may do the opposite. Youmay get all the nutrients you need over several days. Then, using toolsdeveloped for consumers, you will conduct your own dietary analysis. Once youhave feedback from the analysis, you will interpret your findings and decidewhat kinds of changes you can make to improve your own diet.
Section1: 24-hour diet recall/food record (What did I eat?)
Section2: Compiling Data and Analysis (How do I analyze all this information?)
Section3: Reflection using RDA Guidelines (Are there any dietary lifestyle changes Ineed to make?)
Later, you may wish to repeat this exercise using multipledays to get a better idea of your dietary intake or you may wish to consult adietitian who will work with your specific needs.
