toasted bread and potato to my breakfast of eggs scrambled with milk and butter made it be complete. The complete protein consisted of consuming the eggs scrambled with milk and butter in addition to the potatoes and the toasted bread. This was important because the combination of the amino acids with the meals having a complete amino acid and the required protein is necessary for keeping the healthiest diet. This also prevents harm to the body. Macronutrient intake ranges Based on my daily recommended protein, carbohydrate, and lipid, the range for the protein was between 75 and 262 grams and I reached 117 grams. The range for the carbohydrate was 337 to 487 and I achieved 321 grams whereas the range for the lipid consumption was between 67 and 117 grams and I managed to attain 96 grams. In this case, It would be necessary to watch on my lipid intake to control and prevent it from being exceeded. Recommendation for the diet changes While viewing on what I consumed on the daily basis,

there is a lack of variety in my diet. There is one occasion when I eat one thing every day. The nutritious eating and healthy diet is one which is composing of foods from the top five major meals. Eating of more variety helps in reaching the required healthy diet in conjunction with the required amount of protein, carbohydrates, and the lipids (Byrd- Bredbencer, 2012). Fiber intake With regard to the fiber intake, my diet failed to meet the required level as per the calculated iProfile. Based on my intake, the recommendation was 38 g and my intake was 7g, therefore, I only scored 18.4 percent of the required fiber intake. My diet also does not meet the minimum number of servings of meal from every fiber. The most fiber in my meals was protein and the least product was milk. It would be necessary to have an inclusion of the vegetables, whole grains, and the lean meat in the diet (Fisher, et al., 2014). The modification of the dietary In order to increase the amount of fiber, I will include and vegetables. The lack of an adequate amount of proteins, carbohydrate, and the fats leads to several health issues. For example lack of protein leads to lack of nutrients required for the building of the muscles thus causing the dystrophies and the tissues illnesses (Popkin, Linda, & Shu, 2012). The lack

of carbohydrates causes digestive issues, dehydration, and the heart illness. Lack of fats causes lack of important products such as omega 3 and 6. The excess amount of carbohydrates causes excessive energy which might result in obesity, high blood pressure, and the heart illness. Excess fats lead to overweight and the illnesses such as the hypertension, heart illness, and the failure of the liver. Excess fiber leads to constipation thus the process of excretion becoming painful and discomfort (Underwood, 2012). Lesson I have learned that despite meeting the required amount of meals in my diet, I still lack a healthy diet thus this calls for a change. Therefore, it is always necessary to consider other foods such as vitamins and the fruits to prevent complications such as constipation. It is always to regulate the amount of carbohydrate, protein, and the fats since low of excessive of these foods lead to complication in the health.

    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.
