List the primary food sources of the vitamins and minerals that are low on your diet analysis using the textbook as your source of information.
This paper has several steps: please make sure to follow them:
Diet Diary: Track your diet and physical activity for 3 days. Write down everything that you eat and drink (including dietary supplements, water, etc.) and separate it by time periods and include how much of each item that you consumed as well as enough details so it can be analyzed (ex. ½ cup green beans, 1 cup 2% milk, 2.5 cups French Fries, 5 ounce ribeye steak, etc.) and keep track of your physical activity. (what did you do and for how long). Submit this report through Blackboard.
Diet Analysis: Create a profile in Super Tracker and enter your three day food record into the USDA’s Super Tracker program available at: https://www.supertracker.usda.gov/default.aspx. Be sure to enter a new day for each day of your diet diary and enter only the foods and beverages that you consumed on that day. When you generate reports, you will generate them for the three days averaged together so that you can see what nutrients you are low/high. (If you lump all your food and beverages into one day and analyze it, it will look like you met lots of nutrients that you actually didn’t as the numbers should have been divided by 3.)
Generate Reports from the Super Tracker website: Download, save, and submit through Blackboard the following reports from Super Tracker:
A list of what you ate and drank for each day for the 3 days (meals report)
The Food Groups Report from Super Tracker
The Nutrients Report from Super Tracker
Also, submit a written report (Microsoft Word) through Blackboard that includes the following:
List the Low Vitamins/Minerals in Diet: Make a list of the vitamins and minerals that are below the recommended level on your nutrients report. If you don’t have any vitamins or minerals that are low, contact your instructor for an alternate assignment.
List the primary food sources of the vitamins and minerals that are low on your diet analysis using the textbook as your source of information. (tables 1.9-1.10 and 1.13-1.14). Be sure to cite your textbook as the source in your report. Remember that beta carotene is a precursor to Vitamin A (so if you are low in vitamin A, you can eat plant foods such as carrots, squash, broccoli, and tomatoes in addition to animal sources of vitamin A).
Set a Vitamin/Mineral Goal: Set at least one specific goal to modify your diet to increase the vitamins and minerals that are low in your diet using the list of foods in your textbook. The goal(s) should be measurable such as drink a cup of milk for a morning snack on at least 3 days of the week.
