NUTR 251: Introductory Principles of Nutrition Your Healthy Diet Plan Name: Andrew Coppa Objective: 1. To develop a diet that meets the major dietary standards and guidelines discussed throughout this course. 2. To better understand the relationship between foods and nutrients. Procedures: 1. Create a one-day diet plan which meets all of the dietary guidelines listed below. To get started, I recommend you use the MyPyramid as your blueprint for the general types and amounts of foods needed for one day. Then, as you select specific foods, think about the best food choices needed to meet the other guidelines. For example, the MyPyramid indicates you need a minimum of 6 servings of grains with a kcalorie need of 2000 kcalories per day. The Dietary Guidelines states you should choose a variety of grains daily, with at least 3 servings of whole grains. Thus, start with the blueprint of at least 6 servings of grains and when selecting specific foods, select primarily whole grains. Rules for your food selection : You cannot eat any more than 1 cup of a fortified breakfast cereal or a fortified bar or shake. Do not choose a product that has 100% of all vitamins and minerals such as Total, Product 19 or Total Raisin Bran breakfast cereals, Complete cereals, power bars, protein shakes, and instant breakfast.

    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.
