Diet Analysis Project Day Food Essay

… In addition, I need increases of less than a cup for my fruits intake which will be met by consuming more apples, oranges and pears daily. Though I avoid the typical American diet, I need to reduce intake of discretionary calories such as peanut butter, cream cheese and ice cream.

From the above journal, my total intake of carbohydrates is below the DRI recommendations. As shown above, my consumption is 1100 kcal while the DRI recommendation ranges from 1460 and 2108 kcal. Besides, fiber intake is at 15 grams which is almost half the recommended 38 grams. I plan to increase fiber and carbohydrates by having a higher intake of fiber-rich foods like apples and bananas. Moreover, I should replace my consumption of refined grains…. [read more]

My Daily Diet Analysis

Healthy eating and ensuring that one receives the proper nutrition is much more complicated than many advertisers suggest. It is not as simple as watching calories, cutting fat or carbohydrates, or boosting levels of antioxidants. Though all of these are important considerations in developing a dietary plan, it is only in combination along with many other nutrients and vitamins that healthy levels of fat, carbohydrates, and other elements of nutrition can be ascertained for any individual. My daily dietary analysis over a three-day period shows that I am definitely undernourished, both in pure caloric intake and in almost all of the essential vitamins and minerals necessary to keep my body functioning at its optimum level. Despite having a body…. [read more]

Diet Analysis I Am Female Essay

… I am not sure that I would attempt to double my caloric intake, as I might prefer not to maintain weight but to lose it. In addition, such a change would be quite dramatic and I am unsure how my body would react to doubling my caloric intake. However, an increase of 20% might be beneficial, especially if there are nutritional deficiencies.

The other issue that I noticed with my diet is that I was off on two of the three elements of the macronutrient distribution. I eat a lot of protein. While my consumption falls just outside of the AMDR for protein, and I supplement my protein with protein powder, I feel that this is justified given my exercise level. Indeed, if I increased….

Diet Analysis Since the Conception Term Paper

… Diet Analysis

Since the conception of the food pyramid by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) in the 1960s and its inception in 1992, "the familiar, black triangle, found on the majority of boxes of foods at the supermarket, has been an expected sight to our generation" (Greene). It is the icon of nutrition for an entire country, and children are indoctrinated as soon as their innocent minds happen through the door of their first public school. To complete its universality, the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1990 (as revised in 1994) requires it to be placed on all packaging without special exception.

While there can be no denying that the food pyramid has done its share in advising the American public of…. [read more]

Dietary Nutrition Analysis Assessment

… My challenges are the fact that the supplements taste horrible and I am tired a lot making it hard to get motivated. My tiredness is from the diabetes. I ride my bike 30 minutes at least 5 times a week, if not more. The bike says I burn 320 calories each time, give or take. My plate says I burn 916, but I do not believe it. I would like to incorporate a strength training program, such as lifting weights.

I could take my supplements on a schedule with juice or a spoonful of applesauce to cover the taste. My supplements could be taken on a schedule with meals and at bedtime, depending on how many times a day they are supposed to be taken.…. [read more]

Dietary Analysis Creative Writing

… Overall the protein levels over the course of the three day period seem to indicate that the standard American diet includes far too much meat, and too little vegetables and fruit. The Dietary Reference Intake for protein, by contrast, is estimated at 5 1/2 ounces -- so obviously a sandwich with a name like "Double Quarter Pounder" should be an obvious red flag in terms of its needless dietary excess. This was one easily noticed way in which my own diet could be improved -- the replacement of much of the meat intake with more vegetable and fruit would bring my diet substantially closer to the Dietary Reference Intake levels for all of these types of food.

It is worth noting, however, that if just…. [read more]

Getting the Best Diet by Tracking Essay

… 5 cups; vegetables = 2 cups; grains = 5 ounce equivalents; meat and beans = 5 ounce equivalents; milk = 3 cups; oils = 5 teaspoons; and the allotted discretionary calorie allowance = 132 calories. Further breaking down the vegetable food group into vegetable subgroup amounts per week gives me the following targets: Dark green vegetables = 2 cups; orang vegetables = 1.5 cups; legumes = 2.5 cups; starchy vegetables = 2.5 cups; and other vegetables = 5.5 cups. Since I consume most of my vegetables raw, except for peas, beans, and artichokes, I need to consider that 2 cups of raw vegetables is equivalent to one cup of cooked vegetables.

… If I eat less fiber, then various types of digestive issues may occur. With certainty, too much of any macronutrient that is consumed more than what the body needs will either impair bodily functions or be deposited under our skin in the from of subcutaneous fat. Insomuch, the key is to find a balance of macronutrients.

Fiber Intake Ranges

Unfortunately, my fiber intake does not come close to the 25g that are required. Based on food intake, I consumed 8g, 14g, and 11g respectively. On my best day, I only achieved 56% of the recommended dietary intake. On the day that I had a sub-sandwich with vegetables, my fiber intake was high. Similarly, on the day that I had a baked sweet potato, fiber count…. [read more]

Three-Day Food Intake Nutritional Analysis Essay

… Too few carbohydrates and fats may result in lack of energy but, realistically, it is very difficult to consume too little carbohydrates or fat by people in the industrialized world who are not living in poverty (Hamric, Spross, & Hanson, 2009). Too much protein is associated with kidney problems (Hamric, Spross, & Hanson, 2009), but the issue with my protein consumption was more about choosing protein sources and cooking methods that add unnecessary fat in the process.

Fiber Intake Ranges

I did not consume enough fiber because my fruit juices were mostly imitation fruit with corn syrup and artificial flavoring, something I never realized before I started checking labels for this project. The only real source of fiber in my diet over this period was…. [read more]

Food Analysis: Week One

Prior to doing my nutritional analysis, I believed that I ate a relatively balanced diet. I maintain a pretty stabile weight and am in pretty good shape, and think that my food choices are generally balanced. However, the results of my food analysis revealed that I am not eating the number of fruits and vegetables that I need to consume in a day. In addition, I have been making a conscious effort to decrease the amount of bread I consume, because of all of the concern about carbohydrates. I realized that my eating habits are not healthy, because they do not comply with the CNPP's guidelines. On the contrary, I am consuming far more protein than I need to…. [read more]

Food Practice Essay

… The mushrooms were from China. The tofu was made in the United States, presumably with American soybeans. Also in the dish there were Sichuan peppercorns from China, American-grown ginger, garlic, spring onions, one American tomato, soy sauce, black bean paste and a few other spices, most of these ingredients coming from either China, Taiwan or in the case of the soy sauce from California. I had some white rice on the side that came from the United States. I drank some rice milk with this meal, then some water for the rest of the night.

Nutrition Synthesis Essay

… Nutritional Evaluation and Planning

In what ways is your current diet healthy?

My current diet is only healthy in that it not excessively high in caloric intake. Approximately 1,700 calories per day for a relatively active young person of my height, weight, and bodily composition is not, in and of itself, a problem. Likewise, my protein, vitamin, and other micronutrient consumption levels are adequate although I could benefit from reducing my sodium intake, and from increasing my water and potassium intake for optimal health and fitness.

In what specific areas could your diet could use improvement?

The biggest problems with my current diet are that I consume excessive amounts of fats in general and saturated fats in particular and that I do not distinguish adequately…. [read more]

Low Fat Diets Are Healthier Term Paper

… Dietetic deviations of the Atkins plan results in immediate water retention when a carbohydrate starved dieter gives into temptation (Blackburn).

The most damning criticism of Atkins is hardly unique to Atkins, in particular. Regardless of the amount of weight lost, no weight loss diet can be considered "successful" except to the extent that it allows dieters to maintain the weight loss indefinitely. As mentioned briefly before, one significant reason that Atkins subjects like the program is that it allows some of their favorite high-fat foods that are severely restricted on every traditional weight reduction regimen.

Nevertheless, before long, Atkins subjects report that the cravings for all the carbohydrates proscribed under Atkins become as irresistible as those to which they succumbed with regard to high-fat foods…. [read more]

It is to be noted that the Atkins diet program is not self-sufficient and hence the dependence of supplementary vitamin dosages is a life long necessity.

Atkins Program strongly recommends regular aerobic exercises (5 times a week) as a general rule. Weight bearing exercises are also indicated to strengthen the bones and improve the muscle tone. Since chances of cholesterol buildup are a bit higher in the Atkins diet, regular aerobic and weight bearing exercises are part of the diet regimen. The recommended plan is to start with aerobic exercises and include weight training later on once the endurance level…. [read more]

Food Journal Essay

… The food journal is a good way to learn a bit about my culture and habits. When I look at the journal I find things out about my own habits. The journal shows clearly that food is not just food, it is a social tool. This is probably one of the reasons I hated Paris so much my first year there, because even when Parisians eat good food, it does not have the same cultural connotation. Combine this with the way that certain foods can be powerful symbols -- even when intellectually we know they should not be -- and it is not hard to see how interesting the social element of food and how food defines culture can be.

Macronutrient Needs of the Iroquois Essay

… When averaged, these guidelines recommend a ratio of about 55:30:15 for carbohydrates, fat, and protein, respectively. Paleolithic hunter-gatherers, however, depended heavily on animals (game and fish) for their energy needs (Cordain et al., 2000).

When Cordain and colleagues (2000) examined the energy needs of all Paleolithic hunter-gatherers they found that most were located above or below latitude 40°, which would include the Iroquois. Between 66 and 75% of the energy needs of these tribes were derived from the consumption of animals, resulting in an estimated carbohydrate:fat:protein ratio of about 22:50:28. Given the fact that the Iroquois depended heavily on agriculture to meet their macronutrient needs (Santhosh et al., 2014) the ratios would have probably been somewhere between those for a modern and pre-agricultural diet.

Energy Balance is the key to a healthy body

More and more people are becoming victims of obesity. While on one hand, the precise causes of this disease are still unclear, the general conclusion most scientists have agreed upon is the disparity between the energy consumed and the energy used. This is to say, obesity occurs when individual lifestyles lead towards excessive food consumption and little to no energy-utilization activities. Zakus (1982) in his study pointed out that certain ailments, namely, Frohlich's, Klinefelter's, Praeder Willi, Klein-Levin, Lawrence Mood Biedl, and Mauriac syndromes, are the underlying causes of childhood obesity. However, these cases, he points out, occur in less than 5% of children (Zakus, 1982).…. [read more]

The crisis that PepsiCo had to handle in 1993 was a very difficult one because it implied both reality and perception as communication consultant Steven Fink stated. Thus, on the one hand, the U.S. corporation received a blow in its image as a health and safety promoter because of the various and dangerous objects that consumers reported to have found in Diet Pepsi cans, and, on the other hand, it had to tackle the factors causing the hoax for stopping the complaints' chain. Consequently, PepsiCo had to remove both the real crisis by identifying the ones committing such fraudulent acts and the negative perception that began to have a clearer shape in the consumers' minds. Therefore, one could…. [read more]
