Shannon McIlhenney Amanda Gowin Nutrition November 27, 2017 Case study Brian is a 20 year old football player at a small college. He would like to get into better shape for the upcoming football season. Brian is 250 pounds and 6’3” tall. You can assume that his body fat is at a slightly higher than recommended level and he is overall healthy. Nutrition assessment: Brian eats the majority of his meals off-campus. Each day he drinks 2 servings of 2% milk, 14-16 ounces of juice, 16 ounces of soda, and about 24-30 ounces of water. 2-3 times per week he drinks 1-2 energy drinks. He has a difficult time with breakfast and skips regularly as he has a 8 am class. The doesn't like vegetables. Typically he eats a can of soup and a sandwich (lunchmeat/cheese) for lunch and eats fast food or "meat and potatoes" for dinner - usually homemade hamburgers or pork chops and some sort of potato (fries, tater tots, mashed, boiled). He is a busy guy and likes to be on the go. He does not take supplements or use tobacco. He has no health conditions or medications.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
