Question description

Write a 750-900 APA word paper that addresses the following points about the 3-day food intake information listed below

· Recorded intake of protein, carbohydrates, and lipids

o Which foods in your recorded daily intake provide protein? Which provide carbohydrate? Which provide lipids?

o Review how your recorded protein, carbohydrate, and lipid intake compares with the recommendations of the dietary reference intake (DRI). If your recorded protein-carbohydrate-fat intake was too high or too low, which foods might you add or remove to achieve your goal and keep other nutrients in balance?

o Is the protein in each of the foods you ate complete or incomplete, thus combining to become complementary? Why is this fact important?

o How much of your daily-recommended protein, carbohydrate, and lipid intake did you achieve? Were you surprised by the number? If your macronutrient intake is insufficient, what might you do to bring it into the recommended range? Provide specific recommendations.

· Macronutrient intake ranges 

o Is macronutrient intake within the recommended range important? What are the effects of too much or too little of a macronutrient? What happens if you consistently eat too little protein? What happens if you eat too few carbohydrates? What happens if you eat too few lipids?

· Fiber intake ranges

o Does your fiber total meet 100% of the recommendation for you as calculated at the iProfile website?

o Do you think your intake was too high, too low, or just right? Provide a rationale.

o Does your diet meet the minimum number of servings of foods from each fiber-containing group? If not, which of the fiber-containing groups—fruits and vegetables—fell short of the recommended intake?

o Which specific foods provide the most fiber in your days’ meals? Which provide the least? Identify trends in your food choices that might affect your fiber intakes.

· Dietary modifications

o Are you able to identify any patterns or trends within your diet? If so, what are they?

o What changes might you make among your vegetables, fruits, meat and meat alternatives, or grain choices to increase the fiber in your diet?

o Do your meals include fiber-rich bean dishes, such as chili, beans in a salad, or split-pea soup?

o If you drink fruit juice instead of eating whole fruit, what might happen to the fiber content and calorie content in your diet?

o How might insufficient or excessive amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, or fiber contribute to health or illness? Provide examples.

Cite three references other than the course textbooks.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

The chart will be given once approved to do work, ask for it.
