keeping a 3-day diet journal and reflecting on personal eating habits and potential areas for improvement.

Diet analysis general guidelines For this assignment you will be submitting a 2-page (double spaced times new roman 12pt) paper discussing the reflection questions below as well as 3 days of a diet journal. We are looking for a narrative and not for you to answer each individual question like on a test. I also like to reassure students that I do not share any part of this assignment with anyone else so please be truthful in your journaling. This assignment is designed not to promote “diet culture” but to allow students see how successful they can be in the short term in making small changes to better their diet while also hopefully giving them some insight into what they eat. Part 1 Pre Diet Journal Think about what you eat on a daily basis. What are some things you think you already do well? What things can you improve on? This does not need to be huge, it can be small simple things such as increase water intake, more fruit and veg, less mindless eating while watching TV, not skipping meals, better snack choices, etc. Of the things you think you can improve on I would like you to pick one and this is what you will focusing on with this diet journal. Part 2 For part 2 of this assignment students will complete a 3-day diet journal which must include at least 1 weekend day. I recommend downloading the Cronometer app on your phone to make logging your intake easier. The app is available for both IOS and Android. It is a free app and you should not be asked for a credit card or any type of payment when creating an account. You also do not need to upgrade to the “gold” level for this project, the free version works perfectly. Be sure to log all foods, beverages, and ingredients in mixed dishes, and the amount of each you consumed, directly within the app. To increase the accuracy of estimates of food portion sizes, refer to Nutrition Facts Panels on food labels. Serve yourself foods and beverages using a cup measure, or bowls, mugs, and glasses of known volume or if you have available a food scale is the most accurate. For submission of the daily diet journals please log into your cronometer account on your computer and create PDFs for each day. Below are the directions to do this: On Safari File –˃ Export as PDF Name it Day 1, etc. Change save destination so you can find it On Chrome File –˃ Print Change destination to “Save as PDF” Name it Day 1, etc. Change save destination so you can find it Part 3 Post Diet Journal Looking over your diet journal and nutrient breakdown does anything stick out to you as surprising? Are really high or low in any particular nutrient? How did you do with your chosen diet alteration? Did you follow through? Is it something you think you could keep up following the 3 days? Now we are going to look at your diet as a whole. What nutrients were you low in and could you do a better job of eating? What foods could you add to your diet to get these nutrients? Were there any nutrients you were way to high in and if so what foods would you reduce or replace and with what to have a lower intake of that nutrient. Were there any surprises? This could be in regards to a single food or total diet.
