The diet analysis is an important project. The project requires 3 steps –
1. Getting the data. This requires keeping a food log, entering the food in the Nutricalc program, and getting the correct print out. Since this is the basis of the project, this part is due by March 3, 2018. It can be submitted at any time
2. Using the data obtained above to write and submit Part 1
3. Using the data obtained above to write and submit Part 2
Please read the directions for the diet analysis. Here are the directions related to data gathering:
You will need the diet analysis software available with the purchase of your access code with your textbook. You are not to use other meal tracker systems on the internet (i.e. MyFitnessPal, SuperTracker, etc.) as these will not generate the sophisticated reports you will require to complete your project. If you do this project using another software you will not receive credit for the work!
You will need to keep a food diary for 3 days. Use the instructions for keeping the diary. You will collect food, beverage, and behavioral data for the food log. You will use a provided food record form that is available in the Diet Analysis Link. Do not use the one in the nutricalc program. Handwritten records are fine, you are welcome to simply scan them for submission.
Once you have collected the record you will then set up a profile in the NutriCalc program. There is a short tutorial video provided when you are on the front page of the NutriCalc program. Note: DO NOT SET UP PROGRAM FOR WEIGHT LOSS. If weight change is needed, you can talk about this in your paper, but this project is to assess your diet needs in the current time and with your current weight.
After you have set up the profile you will then be able to enter the foods and beverages you consumed over the 3 day period. Make sure to save your work frequently
