Biological Macromolecules in the Foods You Eat
You want to be healthy and have more energy throughout your day. Therefore, you decide to conduct a nutritional analysis. Complete the following:
- Complete the table to keep track of your food intake for 1 day this week. Include the following:
- What type of foods did you eat?
- What is the nutritional content of this food? If your food is packaged with a nutritional label, copy that information into the table in Question 2. Otherwise, visit the website in the document to obtain the information.
- Save your worksheet, and present it with 300-500 words containing the following information:
- Which nutrient do you eat the most of?
- How does your overall food intake match what is recommended for you?
- Do you have a specific exercise goal right now? For example, a weight-lifting plan or a race training plan?
- What type of nutrient would your goal require? In other words, if you are trying to build muscle, do you need a lot of energy for a long run, etc.?
- Do you have a personal health goal right now? In other words, are you trying to lose weight, move more, or generally be more active?
- What might you need to change about your current diet to meet this goal? In other word, do you need to cut calories/energy or eat less of a particular nutrient?
- What changes do you think you might need to make in your diet to meet your health goal or just generally be healthier?
