DQ #2: Think of some of your favorite foods when you were 10 years old. Are they still your favorites? Do you think you will be eating the same foods you eat today 20 years from now? What are some of the reasons dietary modifications may be needed in different life stages? Provide three examples to support your answer. My favorite food at 10 was macaroni and cheese; I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s ok to eat it with my meal occasionally at my age now. It contains more carbohydrates then I should be consuming, but like I said “occasionally” is fine not like when I was ten and could eat it daily. Standard Mac and cheese generally contains 450 calories or more, and my health plan says I should consume no more than 2200 daily, 450 on just some Mac and cheese seems like a waste to me... haha. Today, I eat pretty much whatever I want to an extent, I don’t over indulge in anything. No, I don’t think k I will

Unformatted text preview: have the same diet as I age, your body ages with you. Older people need more liquids and calcium to maintain bone health, so as I age my diet would need to incorporate that. Today I don’t really pay much attention to what I eat. I’m 28 and not too fat, not too skinny, I eat when I eat. I’m sure I could stand to lose some weight but it’s not something I put much effort into. I recently found out that as you age, you lose your ability to produce stomach acid and that interferes with the ability to absorb some nutrients, older people’s diets should reflect these changes as well as the calcium for bones maintenance. As you age, your taste buds change as well, the older you get the salty and sweet taste sensations decline. This can cause you to like things more richly seasoned then you did 20 years prior....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
