Megan Gueli Monday 2pm-4pm January 9, 2012 Assessment of Energy Intake and Expenditure Purpose The purpose of this laboratory was to determine how the subject’s energy expenditure related to his or her energy intake. Then the subject will be given the information found, and recommended to adjust accordingly in order to live a healthier and superior lifestyle. Results This section contains a detailed logging over a 3-day period of time, constantly recording energy intake and expenditure. As can be seen in table 1, all foods and beverages were recorded in detailed amounts and time of intake. On average the subject ate 3 meals a day, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and one late night snack. Ingesting foods such as eggs, pasta, milk, and coffee to name a few nutrients. Then as displayed in table 2, there is a day-to-day breakdown of macronutrients including protein, carbohydrates, fats along with vitamins and minerals. Furthermore, total daily induced thermo genesis, total energy expenditure, and recommended daily allowance percents are included in this table. On average the subject ingested approximately 1420.67 kilocalories a day, and expended about 2288.90 kilocalories a day. However, day-to-day totals varied. The subject on average ate 167% the recommended amount of protein, 56% the recommended amount of carbohydrates, and 69% the recommended amount of fat. Average daily cholesterol was 150% the recommended amount, and vitamins such as B1 and B2 were well above the recommended amount falling in at 109% and 203%. Finally the subject only ingested an average of 60% the recommended amount of fiber, 76% the

recommended amount of iron, and 108% the recommended amount of calcium. These values can be seen in pictoral form in figure 1. Upon using the Harris Bennedict equation, the subject’s resting metabolic rate (RMR) was calculated, finding a RMR of .911 kilocalories per minute. In table 3 a detailed recording of daily physical activities over a three-day span. Activities were compared with similar activities in order to calculate the most accurate daily kilocalorie expenditure per day. On day one the subject was found to expend 2515.6 kcal. Then on day two the subject’s physical activity totaled to about 2320.3 kcal. Finally on the third day the total kilocalories expended found at about 2030.8. Ultimately, averaging to about 2288.9 kilocalories. Table 1: Sample 3 Day nutrient Intake for a 21 year old college student.
