In this Assignment you will again record your food and beverage intake for 5 days and analyze for nutrients using the same program as in Unit 2. Write a 2 page report (in APA format) on how things have changed in your diet and note if there were improvements in your nutrient status and include a screen shot of their diet analysis summary results. Address where else can you make improvements going forward including where you may still be deficient in any vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Has the information in this course influenced your dietary choices in any way?

Record your food and drink intake for 5 days. Try to be as accurate as possible in recording portion sizes. Choose a diet analysis program to set up an account and record your intake. Some suggestions include: www.fitday.com, www.sparkpeople.com, www.choosemyplate.gov. The program must provide a printout of all vitamins and minerals (micronutrients) and macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats and proteins). After entering your data, select “analyze” in the program in order to obtain a print out of your total calories and the amounts of vitamins, minerals, fat, carbohydrates, and protein you consumed. If possible obtain an average of the 5 days that you entered.
