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? My biggest problem is I don’t eat breakfast and lunch on a regular basis so a way I can modify my diet to get the recommended servings for each group is start eating more regular meals and stop snacking off and on all day.

    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.
