I have to say that I have been doing well with my food choices, but with the last three days, it was the weekend, and I didn’t do so well. I am a bit embarrassed of my choices over the
I have learned a lot from this two-day diet analysis assignment. In my two day assessment, I recorded my food intake, quantities, drinks, snacks, condiments, where and who I was with during the meal, the time of day, and the amount of time I spent eating. I was able to analyze my diet to examine what I was eating and what types of nutrients I was getting. I then compared all aspects with my recommended levels of nutrients for my dietary recommended intake. I learned that my eating habits are not the best and could lead to serious health problems in the future that may be detrimental.
The recommended kcal intake was 3200kcal/day; my intake for the day that I recorded my 24-hr diet recall exceeded the recommended amount of kcal by 389kcal, which is exceptional but 922kcal of empty calories overly exceeds the recommend amount. A larger portion of unhealthy food items were consumed that day so I could better my intake by planning
As I began this project I saw no purpose of keeping track of all these different things. I proceeded through the project and started to keep track of my intake, macronutrient range, fat breakdown and stage of change reports and I found it quite helpful to keep track of all those things. This project made me ensure that I was on the right path to becoming a healthy human being. I did not realize how unhealthy my eating habits were until this project made me examine that, which was a good thing. I still find it hard to maintain a strict healthy diet while being at college. Sometimes I am forced to deviate from my healthy diet, but this project helps me get back on track.
A few weeks ago someone came up to me and told me that they absolutely adored my workbook, Break Up With Your Diet. She said that she was reading it when she went away for the weekend with a group of friends.
The three-day diet analysis was interesting. There were many positive attributes to it and definitely negative ones. Over the course of the three days, which were Friday, Saturday and Sunday: and figured this would give a good depiction of what I was consuming on a regular basis. In some places I was consuming more than I should be and in some I was consuming less than I should be. There were also those places were I was getting just the right amount. It is so interesting to me to be able to find out what I am consuming and how I am consuming it. Being an active male, it was most interesting of what I ate, what my average of the three days were, and the plan on how I would correct the way I eat to make it a more healthier lifestyle.
The overall quality of my diet was extremely poor. Although I was able to stay below my recommended 2200 Calorie consumption both days; the amount of fat, saturated fat, protein, carbohydrates, cholesterol, and sodium exceeded my desired range. I have never taken the amount of cholesterol I ingest into thought because I considered cholesterol an elderly problem. The act of recording all I consumed in a single day informed me of eating problems I have and was formerly unaware of. Another piece of information my food log revealed was, the quality of food I chose when
The 21-day fix has a goal for your diet to include: 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein, and 30% fat. The acceptable macronutrient range is; carbohydrates 45-65%, protein 20-35%, and fat 10-35%. Compared to these ranges the diet is a lower carbohydrate diet, and a slight higher protein and fat on the ranges for a healthful diet. The goals are realistic because the amount of food is a decent amount because you are eating a variety of food. It doesn’t seem like you are eating less because you become full from the given amount. It teachers the portion sizing, and doesn’t leave you hungry as you can have snacks. It also includes making sure you are staying hydrated. Included is a video work, that when combined with the diet can improve your results. If you don’t want to do the video it also suggests being active by
The first step in preparing an action plan for nutrition and diet begins with an analysis of my past records on these things, and of the changes that I made over the course of the semester as I became more aware of these issues. The first study was done during January at the beginning of the semester, and the second study of my nutrition intake was done in at the beginning of March. These two studies are the basis of my nutritional plan, and a similar methodology was used with respect to the exercise plan.
My calories per day on the Super Tracker diet plan was set at two thousand calories per day, carbohydrates in the form of vegetables and fruit I needed four and a half cups daily, protein, five and a half ounces, fats, six teaspoons per day. My diet plan actually consisted of a little more calories than I normally consume. I do not eat as much bread, normally in my diet and this diet plan recommended, three ounces per day in the form of rice, bread, pasta and cereal. I did not consume the recommended dairy plus I always seem to go well above my limit of protein. Eight ounces per week is my suggested limit, however I like to eat more protein than that. At my age, forty-seven, and being in menopause, I am encouraged to consume more calcium and vitamin D in supplement form to make up for what I am lacking in my diet. My recommended intake of calcium needs to be at least twelve hundred milligrams, vitamin D one thousand IU daily, also vitamin C (Thack, 2011). I consume too much sugar and caffeine in coffee form. The sugar I consume counts toward my daily intake of calories, but they are “empty” calories with little to no
Calories: For calories I was actually under the DRI goal, but not by much. Calories from fat on the other hand, I did not do so well in. I was over by nineteen percent. I would recommend not eating more than two slices of frozen at one sitting. Calories from saturated fat, I was definitely over. I was over by fifty-one percent on my DRI. Again, I would recommend not eating so many pieces of frozen pizza at one time, and also I should probably cut back on all of the Oreos and junk food that I eat. I am a junk food junkie, so I need to learn healthier eating habits like: smaller portions, substituting healthier forms of “chips”, instead of real chip. I have a problem with consuming empty calories.
Our country is notable for countless aspects in its culture, one of the more prominent aspects being the American Diet. Though our diet is primarily a blend of foods from foreign cultures, there are distinct differences: portion sizes, excess empty calories, and overall nutritional value. To us, food outstrips the three main meals of the day – it is used to celebrate holidays, for comfort, and at many social gatherings. This is where the problem lies.
Hey Everyone! Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week. Mine went by pretty fast. I have been sick this week, and I am finally almost over it. Yay. So today for my fitness friday I wanted to talk a little bit on my progress. I have not weighed in yet, but I am going to do that soon. I have to say overall my clothes are fitting looser. Which in my book is a plus. I have been eating pretty clean staying away from a lot of breads until today I did have some bread for lunch. I totally failed at taking pictures today! I will insert a picture of a smoothie I had a few days ago because it was the exact same kind, and looked the same. Today I got my butt out there and did some excersise. I am one of those people who find it tough to really workout in the winter, due to me loving to workout outside, but where I live we have been getting rain.
A flaky golden top, firm curvy edges, and a sweet filling that will make you come back for more. I am easily swayed with the seductive scent of cinnamon apple or the summer fresh flavour of strawberry rhubarb pies. The crust is the most important part of that savoury or sweet luscious slice. Without that flaky wall, it would just be pudding, or stew.
