Name: ________________________ Revised 12/10/07 1 Lifestyle Analysis Project FCS 2202 Purpose: The purpose of the Lifestyle Analysis Project is to have the student critically analyze his/her current eating and exercise habits in relation to the recommendations set by government and public health standards. Instructions: Use these instructions to complete the Lifestyle Analysis Project. *** Failure to read and follow these instructions precisely will negatively affect your grade for the project. *** If you have any questions feel free to e-mail or visit Natalie Sherman, GTA ( [email protected] ) or you can see Dr. Coleman during office hours. There are four major parts to this project: 1. Recording a 3-day diet record and a 3-day activity log; 2. Completing a computerized analysis of the 3-day diet and 3-day activity log; 3. Analysis of your nutrient intake when compared to the Dietary Recommended Intakes (DRIs) including how your current intake will affect your risk for chronic disease; and, 4. Development of a wellness plan based on the findings of the above analysis. This project takes time to complete! To prevent undue stress the night before it is due, work on it throughout the semester so you can complete it correctly. To help you with your time management, I’ve made parts of the assignment due earlier in the semester. They will receive a grade that will be included in the final grade of the project. If you do these assignments incorrectly and it will affect your calculations, then you MUST redo it or points will be deducted from your calculations. For example, if you enter the quantity of your food incorrectly and your average intake is 7000 calories, you need to reenter the data so the caloric amount makes sense. This entire project is worth 25% of your total grade. If you don’t do well on this, it will have a huge impact on your final grade.
