In part 1, food/beverage intake and activity for one weekend day and two week days were collected. In Part 2 of this assignment, you will need to analyze your nutrition and activity. Use the 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (Links to an external site.) and any additional evidence-based research to compare your results. This will be in presentation format, using PowerPoint or similar program. Be sure to cover the following information in your self-reflection:
Adequacy of macronutrient intake:
What was your daily caloric intake? Carbs? Protein? Fat?
How many “empty calories” did you consume?
Did you exceed your recommended caloric intake? (Tip: consider updating the “Wellness Profile” and view the Intake vs. Goals Report to see your comparison)
Did you exceed recommended cholesterol intake?
Adequacy of micronutrient intake:
Were you deficient in any micronutrients? Exceeding recommended intake?
How was your intake of sodium, calcium, Vitamin C?
