Diet analysis is very important and must be done frequently to keep track of what we consume or take into our body. It helps us to keep track of the food that we take and also know what to fix in what we eat. Some individuals usually have to monitor their calorie intake, their carbs, fats, proteins, sodium, and vitamins, among other macro and micronutrients.

Materials and methods

A weighing scale is needed to determine the weight and height of the subject before you can input any information into the fitness pal website. The materials you use during the diet analysis exercise includes a site to calculate the dietary intake. My fitness pal is a website that can help one to track his/her intake as it provides calorie count and suggestions on how to improve on one’s diet and lifestyle. The site also calculates the amount of macro and micronutrients you are consuming in each meal. This site was used to determine the count of the foods that were taken by the subject. The site was also helpful in getting the BMI of the subject.
The procedure of this analysis was to pick three days that are not consecutive on the calendar and record three-day diets in three different tables and monitor certain three food products in those meals and compare them to nutritional RDA. In our case, we chose to control the number of calories consumed, fats, proteins and the sodium content in the subject’s food intake. Drinks such as water and other non-nutritious beverages were not included in the three-day logs.

Results

The experiment resulted in three tables showing the three-day diet logs.

Discussion

From the results, the subject’s calorie intake was inadequate for a male of 19 years of age. Based on my fitness pal website, the Estimated Energy Requirement for the subject is 2270kcal. The subject was at an average weight of 138 pounds, but he was consuming less than what was required of him. The average number of calories which he consumed per day was 1496kcal while the Estimated Energy Required is 2270kcal. This was below the recommended levels by 774kcal. The Recommend daily allowance for cumulative fats for the subject is 76g while the average fats daily consumed by the subject was 58.6, therefore the subject was taking 17.4g less the correct amount of fats recommended for him which is 76g (Nutritional Health Resource). The RDA for protein for the subject is 114g while the average daily intake for the subject is 65g this is 49g less than the required amount. Finally, the RDA for sodium is 2300mg while the average daily intake for the subject is 1803 mg this is less the recommended daily intake by 497 (Nutritional Health Resource).

Conclusion

Generally, the subject was underfeeding and required to supplement his deficiency with healthy snacks in between meals. The research also figured that if the subject was to continue with the same diet, he would lose weight gradually and eventually he might develop complications, such as weakening of the immune system and dysfunction of body muscles, due to undernutrition (Palande). A fascinating finding is that the apple fruit contained none of the food substances we were investigating. The apple fruit had zero fat, protein or sodium count.

First time when I placed an order with you, I just lacked time to do all the homework and it was a lot going on in my family. But today I’m doing it sometimes just for fun – I really enjoy communicating with your Customer Support members and just letting myself being a bit lazy

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with GrabMyEssay.com and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am not used to such services and I usually write all the papers by myself. But this time I got in a very difficult situation and had to order my paper on this website. To my surprise it appeared to be quite good. Thank you, it is really nice service. Think I'll get back to you soon!

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but GrabMyEssay.com is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
