# Diet Analysis

REGARDING PART 2 OF MYPLATE:

I’d like to give everyone a few tips to get maximum points:

1-Follow the instructions IN ORDER as they are written. A well-organized paper is easier for me to grade. I should not have to hunt around for your answer to each of the questions.

2-Do not skip any questions. Every single question that is listed should have an answer. In grading Part 1 of this assignment, students lost more points from neglecting to answer questions than from giving the wrong answer.

3-When discussing your vitamins and minerals, refer to the Bar Graph and discuss EACH vitamin and mineral that was 120%. You should make a table to keep this organized. Here is an example of what your table might look like (feel free to copy and paste these tables into your paper, or you can make your own):

Tables are attached

4-When discussing your energy intake and weight, keep in mind that your report gives an estimate of the calories you need (based on height, weight, gender, activity level) and also your average intake per day based on your 3 day food logs. For some people, there is a big difference between these 2 numbers. Keep this difference in mind when discussing whether your weight is stable or you’re losing/gaining. This takes some critical thinking. You won’t find this answer in the book. FOR EXAMPLE, if your estimated needs are 2800 cal/day and your 3 day average intake is 1500 cal/day and you say you are maintaining your current weight, then you have to explain this difference. How can you eat 1300 cal/day less than what is recommended and still maintain your weight? This example might not apply to everyone but it will certainly apply to many of you.

5-When writing your goals, be SPECIFIC. Think of SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic, Timed. You will not receive credit for “I will eat more vegetables and fruit.” You will receive full credit for “I will eat 1 banana, apple, orange, or pear every weekday for breakfast.” Be sure to address the deficit in your diet that you are trying to correct with each of your goals. Also be sure to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your diet.

6-Be sure to upload the Food logs, Bar Graph, and Calorie Assessment along with your paper. I realize you already did this for Part 1, but please do it again for Part 2. Again, these should be in pdf format and your paper would be in Word.

7- I want everyone to review the comments I made on Part 1. There may be information in there that will be helpful for you as you complete Part 2
