3 Day Food Record I) Introduction: 1) The interviewer clearly explained to the client instructions on how to list foods, showed examples of measurements, and provided her with typed instructions and a sample food record for clarification. The interviewer answered questions that the client had about how to estimate portion sizes. 2) The interviewer explained to the client that detail was very important and to list all brand names and exact amounts. The interviewer explained that metric units must be used. She showed the client how to measure liquids using a liquid measuring cup, and how to use measuring spoons correctly. When the food records were returned, there were some instances where “a bowl” or “pieces” were used and the interviewer had to ask for exact measurements. For the most part the client followed the measurements correctly. 3) The interviewer informed the client about how to estimate portion sizes by showing her how much a cup of dried cereal was using measuring cups, and how much a tablespoon of butter was using measuring spoons. The interviewer told her how to estimate a cup by using her fist. Although the client did not have food models, she used other techniques such as a deck of cards and a baseball to help eyeball measurements.

II) Methods: After the interviewer explained the instructions to the patient clearly, including how to measure amounts correctly, she was given a 3 day food record to fill out. The client began the record Thursday morning and ended it with Saturday’s dinner. After returning it, the interviewer had several questions about measurements to clarify before starting the analysis. The client used “a bowl of” and “pieces” as amounts, and the interviewer had to ask her how many serving a “bowl” was. After clarifying measurements, the interviewer assessed the diet using an online program (fitday.com)
