Using the nutritional assessment previously completed from SparkPeople, and using the report Daily Nutrition Feedback – answer the following: (remember I want 3-day average intake, not intake for each day, so youll have to do some math to average the 3 days together – kindly show your math for full credit).
- What is your average intake of calcium, in milligrams? (compared to recommended) (note Sparkpeople reports in percentages — based on requirement of 1,000 mg/day. So, if your Sparkpeople 3 day average of calcium is 30, that means you met 30% of your goal (and you can calculate mg of calcium by taking 1000 * 0.3 = 300). This means your average mg/day of calcium is 300.
- What is your average intake of vitamin D, in micrograms? (Compared to recommended) Vitamin D is reported as a percentage. So if your vitamin D 3-day average is 4, that means 4% (which is lower than 100-150% recommended)
- What is your average intake of vitamin C? (compared to recommended) Vitamin C is reported as a percentage. So if your vitamin C 3-day average is 400, that means 400% (which is higher than 100-150% recommended)
- What changes can you make in your diet or lifestyle to more closely meet the recommendations? Remember to be specific here – this answer should take up the majority of this assignment — go through each nutrient in which you were low/high and address how you’d improve your intake. Please don’t suggest that you will ‘take a supplement to improve your intake, rather give me food sources for your nutrients. Remember too that I want detail – so tell me more than “I need to eat more vitamin C” or “I need to eat more fruit” – I want to hear what fruit you’d eat, what the portion of that fruit is, when you’d eat it, and what amount of ___ nutrient it has in each portion. This section should take up the MAJORITY of your assignment – as this is where you show me that you’ve critically thought about how you’d add these nutrients (through food) to your diet) Thanks!
