Three Day Food Intake Jane Williams SCI 220 January 30, 2010 The Three Day Food Intake During a three day period, I used I-Profile to keep track of my food and beverage intake of my breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Over the three days, I-Profile tracked my single nutrients. During the three days, the food I ate provided Protein, carbohydrates, and lipids, which is also called fat. Day 1 I consumed grapes, pineapples, wheat bread, a slice of cheese, burrito with beans and cheese, chocolate covered raisins and a Subway cookie. Day two the food that provided protein, lipids, and carbohydrates are southwest egg rolls, fajita taco with lettuces and tomatoes, grapes, popcorn and chips.

Day two of using the I-profile I was within the acceptable range of lipids, proteins and carbohydrates. My protein was a bit low so I should have eaten more chicken or turkey on this particular day. The third day was the same, I did not eat any breakfast and my protein is 15% the normal range is 10-35%, I should have consumed more meat. I was not surprised by my daily intake of protein because some days I eat lots of meat, and some days I do not eat meat at all or just a small portion of meat. Of the three days, my total protein intake totaled 167 grams. The daily intake for carbohydrates should be 231-338 grams, all three days I was within range. I was surprised with my lipid intake on
