Compare your diet with the respective dietary guideline. Write “yes” or “no” Guideline Met? Y/N Explain your response Give specific examples Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 1. Consume a variety of nutrient-dense foods Y N N Day 1 (except for the hot dog) would closely mimic the example in our text book (page 50) on how to eat nutrient dense foods throughout the day. It included many fruits, vegetables, and grains. Days 2 and 3 decreases in the amount of fruits, vegetables, and grains and involved more unhealthy choices and empty calories than day 1. 2. Adopt a balanced eating plan Y Y N Aside from eating much less calories at breakfast than at other meals, days 1 and 2 were more balanced than day 3. They met the recommended amounts for protein, carbs, and fats and included healthy choices such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables which day 3 lacked. 3. Balance calorie intake and expenditure (Look at energy balance in Diet Analysis) N N N The first two days, my caloric intake was lower than my caloric expenditure. My caloric intake on the third day exceeded caloric expenditure. 4. Engage in regular physical activity and reduce sedentary activities N N N Besides Yoga class on Tuesday and Thursday, I don’t engage in any extra activity when I should. 5. Consume ≥ 5 servings fruits and vegetables N N N On day 1 I consumed 4.7 cups of fruits and vegetables, while day 2 had 2.1 cups and day 3 had 2.0 cups. Unfortunately, none of these are 5 servings. 6. Consume a variety of fruits and vegetables Y N N Day 1 included spinach, lettuce and tomatoes on the turkey sandwich, banana

peppers, strawberries, and carrots. The other days were not so successful in having diverse fruits and vegetables. 7. Consume ≥ 3 ounces of whole grains Y N N On the first day, I consumed whole grain bread on my turkey sandwich, whole grain crackers, and whole grain bread with the peanut butter and jelly (despite the report saying “whole wheat” it was actually whole grain). The other two days, I did not consume whole grains, such as the white hamburger bun. 8. Consume 3 cups of fat-free or low-fat milk
