Diet Analysis Assignment pages 6-10 C OMPARE YOUR ESTIMATED CALORIE EXPENDITURE ( NEED ) AND INTAKE Measuring actual energy need requires special equipment. Indirect calorimetry, which measures oxygen intake and carbon dioxide output, is an accurate way to do this is – but this isn’t feasible for this assignment. 1. What is your estimated calorie expenditure (need)? _______ calories (from http://www.mypyramid.gov/mypyramid/index.aspx ) 2.What is your average caloric intake from the MyPyramid analysis? ______ calories, rounded to nearest 50. Rounding is important due to the inherent imprecision in any nutrient analysis. Failure to round will result in a loss of points. (See step 7a in the Instructions.) 3. Your calorie intake is only an estimate of your calorie intake over time. For example, which of these reasons apply to your 3-day food intake? [Mark all that apply. You will not lose points for your answers to this question. It is here to remind you that the online analysis only provides an estimate of your intake.] ____ I didn’t measure the actual volume or weight of every food I ate – estimating was more practical. ____ The foods I ate might have a different recipe than the foods in the database. ____ Some of the foods I ate weren’t in the database, so I substituted with similar foods. ____ Having to write foods down made me change what and how I ate, at least a little bit. ____ These days weren’t really representative of how I eat most of the time. ____ I couldn’t remember everything, or I may have missed a component. 4. Regardless of the numbers from any diet analysis program, the best indicator your calorie balance is what is happening to your weight over time. In the last several months, what has been happening to your weight? ____ Gaining = calorie intake is greater than expenditure ____ Maintaining = calorie intake equals expenditure ____ Losing = calorie intake is less than expenditure 5. Are you satisfied with your current calorie balance? __ Yes __ No What would you do to change it?

    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.
