Develop an understanding of the role of nutrition and apply the concept of body mass index (BMI), calculate the daily energy needs and consumption using specific formulas. Task Requirements: To complete this assignment, you need to pay attention to the following requirements (please see the detailed description below): 1) BMI calculation and interpretation 2) BMR and total daily energy needs calculation/ use the second method 3) Food diary and energy consumption analysis 4) Write your report with thoughtful reflection on results and comprehensive recommendations for healthy weight management 5) Use sources from the literature Total number of words: maximum 400-500 (not including references) Number of sources/references:

BMI calculation and interpretation Explain the concept of body mass index (BMI). Collect weight (in kilograms) and height (in meters) measurements. Calculate BMI using the collected measurements and the formula (BMI = weight (kg) / (height (m))^2.) provided. Show the calculations. Interpret BMI results based on standard BMI categories (e.g., underweight, normal weight, overweight, and obese).

BMR and total daily energy needs calculation Explain the concept of daily energy needs and its importance in maintaining a healthy weight.

Estimate the daily energy needs. The Harris-Benedict equation for calculating basal metabolic rate (BMR) (10Xwieght in KG)+(6.25XHight cm)-5x Age-161=BMR For Women Show the calculations.

Select and explain your activity level and calculate the total daily energy needs by multiplying their BMR by the corresponding activity factor.

Food diary and energy consumption analysis Record a one-day food diary, documenting everything you eat and drink during that period.

Calculate the daily energy consumption using an application (e.g., MyFitnessPal). Show the results

Write your report with thoughtful reflection on results and comprehensive recommendations for healthy weight management.

Analyze the daily energy consumption in comparison to the calculated daily energy needs. Reflect on your BMI and whether the consumption aligns with the energy requirements and discuss the potential implications for weight management

Provide recommendations for achieving a healthy weight and maintaining a balanced diet. Consider adjustments to daily energy consumption, physical activity levels, and overall lifestyle choices.

Use sources from the literature to justify your approach.

Use 2 to 4 scientific references. Use a consistent in-text and referencing style (e.g., APA)
