I have a project about writing a nutrition analysis. I have everything in the doc. file with profile information

as well as the website account. 

To complete this assignment you will need your MyDietAnalysis Code Card to register on the My Diet Analysis website, at (Links to an external site.) Account ID: HMT 612 Password: Ha5564194 The diet analysis program  requires you to enter "Profle" inFormation: weight, height , gender and activity levels. If you decide to choose “weight loss” do not state a weight loss of more than 2 pounds a week in your proFle. Weight: 200 lbs. Height: 5ft. 10 Gender: Male Activity level: medium Part 1: Keep a Food record For 4 Days and enter data into the diet analysis program. Keep written 4 day food record with at least one weekend day. A 4-day record oF Food intake will give you an average that is a more accurate re±ection oF nutrient status than a single day. In your Food record, include the Foods, the portion sizes, the time oF day meals and snacks are eaten and any other patterns you notice about your eating routine. It would be best to make your entries at least once a day iF not 2 or 3 times a day. Do Not try to improvise!   AFter you have established a profle you are ready to enter your 4 day Food record. Select “Day 1” and enter the data, then “Day 2”, and enter then “Day 3” etc. and enter. Make sure you enter foods into speciFc days or dates. Also, be sure to organize them according to breakFast, lunch etc. Enter your "helping size" by using the portion sizes available as you enter the Foods (in Tbls, cups, ounces etc.) Enter the real amount oF Food that you ate. Be precise to get the most accurate assessment. ( Hint : Most students underestimate the amount oF Food they eat. Be honest For best results.) ReFresh your memory about portion sizes by reading Chapter 2 in your text book or visit (Links to an external site.) For portion size inFormation.   Part 2: Use the “Reports” to analyze your dietary intake.

For this assignment you will use a combination of food AND nutrient analysis reports: From MyDietAnalysis you will need to access the following reports: Actual Intake VS Recommended Intake The Plate" Meal Assessment Report Calorie Distribution All Nutrients Spreadsheet ”. All of these reports can be found in the “ All Daily Reports ”.   Write a comprehensive assessment of your nutrient intake in narrative (story) form: no bullets please!. This section should take up at least 2, single spaced pages. In your narrative report address the following topics:   Actual VS Recommended for macronutrients : Compares your intake levels to the “ Recommended Intake " (DRIs). You need to report on: calories, protein, carbohydrate, fat, saturated fat, ±ber. You must include examples of the foods that contributed the most of these nutrients to your intake (check the Nutrient Spreadsheet for these details.) If you choose weight loss , then address how much lower your caloric recommendation is for your pro±le. Do NOT cut and paste sections of the reports.   Actual VS Recommended for micronutrients : Discuss any nutrient that was signi±cantly greater or less than the recommendation according to the DRI’s (25 % more or less). YOU MUST ADDRESS the following nutrients regardless: Vit. A, Vit. C, Vit. D, Vit. E, folate, iron, calcium, sodium and potassium. Refer to the Nutrient Spreadsheet to determine what foods contribute to these levels. Include examples of the foods that contribute to these nutrient levels. If levels are low, what foods would increase them (refer to your text)? If they are high, what foods contributed the most? Explain any pattern you see.
