Week 1 Checkpoint: Three Day Diet Analysis a. How does your diet compare to the recommendations you received from the Food Guide Pyramid? How many servings from each food group did you consume? My diet and the recommendations are like night and day. I never realized what kind of eating habits I really had until now. From the meat group I consumed about 3 servings a day, breads I ate about 4-5 per day, dairy I eat about 3 servings, and vegetables maybe 1 a day. b. How might you modify your diet to get the recommended servings for each food group? What are some nutrient-rich foods that you could add to your daily diet?
