Name______ All work must be TYPED. Introductory statement: Before beginning your Food Record, type a short statement (1-2 paragraphs) that describes what YOU think your daily diet is like. Do you feel it is nutritious, provides quick energy, makes you feel at your best, helps with athletic or sports training, helps to meet a goal such as weight loss, weight gain, or weight maintenance? Is your diet a reflection of consequence, a compellation of whatever food is available, such as in the dorm cafeteria? The purpose of writing this statement is simply to clarify what YOUR preconceptions are about your daily diet. There is no right or wrong answer! Part I: Three Day Dietary Record You will record a three-day food record using the skills outlined in class and in this homework. Select three days that are characteristic of your usual eating patterns. Include two weekdays and one weekend day (Saturday or Sunday). Use the outline posted on WebCT under the heading “Three Day Food Record.” You will probably need a copy for each day. This portion will be turned in with this homework and it is the only portion that can be handwritten . Be sure to record the date at the top of each page. I will post an example on WebCT. Directions : Record EVERYTHING you eat and drink, including water. Be honest with yourself in recording your food intake rather than trying to impress others. Honesty will make the results of the study more valuable to you. You will not be graded on what foods you choose to eat or not to eat. Your grade will be based on accuracy in recording, calculations, and your evaluation of the results. The following components must be completed on the “Three Day Food Record.” 1. In the FOOD column, list each food eaten (cereal, milk, cheese, chicken, etc.) 2. In the AMOUNT column, list the quantity of food consumed. Try to be as accurate as possible. Use the appendix A in your text book as a reference for foods. Record the amount eaten in measurable quantities (cups, ounces, teaspoons, tablespoons, slices, etc). Do not use words like glass, bowlful, or “1 serving.” 3. In the DESCRIPTION column, indicate how the product was prepared (fried, broiled, baked, raw, etc.), the specific type of product (cheddar if the food is cheese, whole or skim if the food is milk), or any other descriptive terms (brand names, fat-free, low fat, etc.) that might affect the nutritive value of the food. For any combination food (pizza, burrito, lasagna), list EACH food component with the amount and description separately. Dietary Analysis Project Nutr 120/Due November 5th 1

What students are saying

    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.
