To get started with building a personal nutrition portfolio, you will complete and submit the following information for this assignment:
Step 1: Collect data for your current (baseline) eating pattern for two (2) weekdays and one (1) weekend day of data.
Step 2: Select NEW eating pattern guidelines for the semester’s exploration.
a.) compare your current intake to each of the recommendations listed. Note whether you met the recommendation for that particular food or nutrient
b.) select three (3) food recommendations of interest from your selected eating pattern to work on improving this semester and write them down
c.) Use an online calculator to determine micronutrients and fiber recommendations.
d.) reflect on your current (baseline) eating pattern.
At a minimum, you need to collect/assess your complete food and beverage intake (current (baseline) eating pattern) over 3 days—2 weekdays and 1 weekend day. Don’t forget to use the exact dates for tracking.
What to Collect? The goal of the baseline assessment is to collect data that will provide an honest and unbiased starting point with regards to your current day-to-day food choices. For this reason, it is important that during this assessment, you do not change your eating pattern dramatically as this will skew your data. Do your best to stick with what you have typically been eating prior to starting this course.
If you have not done so already, copy the spreadsheet, NUTR 100: PNP Food Intake, and Micronutrients/Fiber Consumption Charts (Refer to the Instructions and Checklist section to copy the chart in preparation to use to collect your information.). Use the PNP #1 Data Collection sheet within the chart to track your food intake. Some of the items you are required to track on the PNP #1 Data Collection sheet include:
Note About Tracking Micronutrients and Fiber
The following information (calcium, potassium, sodium, and fiber) will need to be collected about the foods you have eaten. You may use the food label, Food Data Central (链接到外部网站。), What’s in Food (链接到外部网站。), (链接到外部网站。)diet analysis software (such as My Fitness Pal), or do a web search for the information. When using Food Data Central, choose “Survey” options rather than “Brand” options to see all nutrient data including potassium.
If Calcium is listed as % Daily Value, convert the percent (%) to milligrams.
Choose at least two additional types of data to collect from the list below:
Select one (1) NEW eating pattern for the duration of the semester. You will use the selected eating pattern of your choice to compare against the current (baseline) data that you have collected.
You need to choose the Chinese Dietary Guideline: http://dg.cnsoc.org/article/04/8a2389fd5520b4f30155be01beb82724.html
Select three (3) recommendations of interest from the list below and reflect on your current (baseline) eating pattern.
Complete the PNP#1 Food Recommendations Sheet within the Food Intake and Micronutrients Consumption Chart (downloaded above) by comparing your current intake to each recommendation. Think about your average intake across the three days.
Simply write YES ( met the recommendation) or NO ( did not meet the recommendation) in the table.
You must select a minimum of 3 recommendations, but no more than a maximum of 5 recommendations. These recommendations should be selected based on your own interests and what you would like to attempt to change or improve regarding your eating habits. Check or otherwise indicate which recommendations you plan to follow in the Food Recommendations sheet.
Use this calculator (https://www.nal.usda.gov/legacy/fnic/dri-calculator/index.php) to determine your recommendations for each of the following nutrients of concern: Calcium, Potassium, Sodium, Fiber.
Step 3d: Write a reflection comparing and contrasting your current eating pattern to dietary recommendations.
Write a minimum of 250-word reflection regarding this assignment. Please double-space for ease in reading your assignment.
