1. Using the source analysis reports, list the top three food sources of fat per day. Looking at fat breakdown report, what was the average percent of total calories from saturated fat? Name three foods that you can limit to reduce the amount of saturated fat in your diet using the Intake Spreadsheet data. The top food source of fat on day one of the diet analysis was a beef soft taco with lettuce and cheese. On day two, it was fettuccini alfredo. Again on day three, it was the beef soft taco with lettuce and cheese. According to the fat breakdown report, the average percent of total calories from saturated fat was 12. In order to reduce the amount of saturated fat in my diet, I should limit cheese, beef, and milk. 2. From the Intakes vs. Goals list at least 2 vitamin(s) and 2 mineral(s) of concern as not meeting at least 75% of the DRI, identify two reasons why you should be concerned about consuming inadequate quantities of this vitamin and mineral. (Please include 2 reasons per vitamin and 2 per mineral). For each vitamin and mineral, name two foods that you can incorporate into your diet to meet this nutrient needs. Be sure to list foods that you will actually eat and enjoy. Specific food sources of the vitamins and minerals can be found in Vitamins and Minerals chapters of your textbook. If you do not have deficiencies in micronutrients, you may comment on excesses – especially look at sodium. Two vitamins that do not meet 75% of the DRI in my diet are alpha-tocopherol(15%) and Vitamin D(46%). Two minerals that do not meet 75% of the DRI in my diet are potassium(28%) and magnesium(38%). I am concerned about the inadequate quantities of alpha-tocopherol in my diet because I could suffer from muscle loss and nerve damage, or anemia. This vitamin acts as an antioxidant.
