Day two the food that provided protein, lipids, and carbohydrates are southwest egg rolls, fajita taco with lettuces and tomatoes, grapes, popcorn and chips. The third day I consumed Subway club sandwich, meatloaf, orange juice and grapes. The recommended intake of protein for the first day is 10-35% I only consumed 151 Kcal. My recommended carbohydrates were 45-65% in intake for day one is 1189 Kcal, which is acceptable, I need to cut out some carbohydrates such as the Subway cookie and the Chic-fil-A lemonade, both have between 60-63 carbohydrates. The fat I consumed on day one was 28% I should consume no more than 35%, I am within the acceptable range.
With the help of the Intake Compared to DRI report I was able to identify the nutrients in which I was deficient in during my three day analysis. I will be providing two food sources for each nutrient in which I was deficient that would have increased that specific nutrient level. The following nutrients, including vitamins and minerals were under an eighty percent. Kilocalories (68.1%) Two good food sources that would increase this nutrient in my diet would be more protein such as fish, and legumes. Seeds, nuts, vegetables, and fruits would also be a great way to obtain more kilocalories in my diet.
Eating a fat delayed dinner 25 minutes, eating a protein delayed dinner 60 minutes, and eating a carbohydrate delayed dinner by 34 minutes. The protein snack had a significantly longer latency to dinner. There was no significant difference on energy consumption at dinner. Snacking with different compositions delays the latency to the next meal but doesn’t change the amount of energy consumed at that meal. Snacking behavior is harmful you will consume more energy.
For Vitamin A I could add more vegetables including carrots. 2. With my current diet, all of the foods containing a high amount of calories are fast food. For example my Chipotle visit had more than 1750 calories. Though these fast food visits also count for a majority of the protein I eat.
Provide specific suggestion My recorded protein, carbohydrate, and lipids intake compare to the recommendation of the Dietary Reference Intake of protein for the total three days were 103, carbohydrate 397, and lipids 791. However, recorded protein-carbohydrate-fat intake compare to the dietary reference intake was too high. With my intake, bring higher than the DRI know more fast foods, monitor the food and fat intake to reach my goal and maintain a nutrients balance. The protein in each of the foods ate was incomplete because it did not contain the protein require. Therefore, combining the complementing is a contentious idea although that lacto-vegetarian, individually vegetarians should eat selected complementary foods such as beans and rice together in a similar meal.
Super-Size Me Review Super-Size Me is a documentary by Morgan Spurlock about McDonald’s and its adverse health effects. The film involves documenting Spurlock over a 30 day period in which he eats only McDonald’s, in an effort to prove that the fast food chain is one of the leading causes of consumer weight gain. He ate at McDonald’s three times per day and had to consume everything on the menu at least once. Another stipulation he made was that he had to “Super-Size”, make the portion larger, if asked by the cashier. Spurlock claimed to have consumed over 5,000 calories per day at during this experiment.

Since corn syrup is cheater to produce then table sugar, that’s why it goes into almost everything we eat. The U.S. put an import tariff on foreign sugar, raised the price of sucrose so high that corn had to be the main source in the U.S.
Marco’s calcium intake is about 51.2% more than the recommendations, but it is still lower than the upper limit of 2,500 mg per day that DRI gives. However, sodium consumption of 3,095 mg is 34.6% more than the upper limit of 2,300 mg per day which may raise a health issue. Table–1 The amount of five nutrients Marco consumes each day Fiber(g) Iron(mg) Calcium(mg) Sodium(mg) Vitamin A(µg) Breakfast 2 plain pancakes (from a mix) 0.8 0.8 72.0 360.0 0.0 3 tsp (45 ml) maple syrup 0.0 0.6 66.0 6.0 0.0 ½ grapefruit 2.0 0.1 27.0 0.0 71.0 1 cup (250 ml) 2% milk 0.0 0.1 302.0 106.0 142.0 Lunch 1 cheese sandwich -2 slices whole wheat bread 4.8 1.2 25.0 284.0 0.0 -2 oz.

When one moves away from meat products, it requires them to shift their focus on other foods such as wholegrains, fruits, vegetables, beans, peas, nuts, and seeds. Studies have shown that vegan diets have more fiber, antioxidants, and beneficial plant compounds. They also appear to be richer in potassium, magnesium, folate, and Vitamins A, C, and E (Craig). Another benefit of a vegan diet is weight loss, a 2013 study showed that a vegan diet helped participants lose 9.3 lbs more than a control diet over an 18-week period (obesity.org). Employees from 10 sites of a major US company with body mass index greater than 25kg/m and/or a previous diagnosis of type 2 diabetes were randomized to either follow a low-fat vegan diet or make no diet changes for 18 weeks.
