Admin/ July 13, 2022/ Nutrition

Your essay will need to include 8 paragraphs outlining:
What was it like to track your diet?
Fats (use ‘Total Fats’ from your report. You may also include discussion on the various forms of fat such as saturated fat)
Micronutrient of your choosing
Micronutrient of your choosing
Micronutrient of your choosing
What did you learn through this project?
How did this project impact you?
What is your big ‘take home’ message through this analysis?
How impactful was this to analyze your own diet and incorporate the bounty of knowledge you have gained this quarter?
Have you made any realizations you will take action upon in the future?
In your essay you will need to address your intake in terms of all three macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats, and proteins) as well as THREE micronutrients of your choosing. You will need to discuss if you are under, meeting or exceeding the needs of each of these six categories, as well as what this means in relation to your health and how your body functions. Each of the six topics of discussion (3 macronutrients and 3 micronutrients) will need to be addressed in your paper, thoroughly, and with detail. You will need to tie in information from our nutrition 100 course, your book, and you may (if needed/wanted) tie in information based on further research (PLEASE CITE THESE SOURCES).
At the beginning of your essay you will need an introductory paragraph. This does not need to be super long, but please introduce your reader to your paper and how you found the information you are about to write about. How did you track your diet- was this easier or harder than expected? At the end of your essay you will need a paragraph (paragraph 8) to summarize and reflect on your nutritional status and what you have learned in this class. How has the knowledge of how your body uses food, how it functions, and what you are consuming impact the choices you make or will continue to make in the future regarding your nutrition?
For each macronutrient/micronutrient please discuss the following to receive full credit.
Your average intake of that nutrient (both in grams or milligrams, and the percentage of your RDA)
Your RDA/AI for that nutrient (on the BarGraph report)
The purpose/functions of this nutrient (why do we need this nutrient?)
2-4 foods you ate that attributed to your overall intake of that nutrient
3 foods (other than those you consumed) that are high in this nutrient
If applicable what happens if we get too much or too little of this nutrient?
If you are above/below your recommended amount and what modifications you would make to achieve an intake closer to the appropriate amount for your needs
** While your main paragraphs should cover the same basic information they should NOT be redundant. Please use your writing skills to create a paper that is thorough and interesting to read.**
Formatting for your essay:
*Please make note of these formatting guidelines. If I notice that your margins are larger than what is listed below, or your font is larger (etc) I will change the formatting to what is below. If the length is changed in your paper you will be docked points. These formatting instructions are in place to make sure that you are reflecting enough to complete all points in your paper. If you go over the 4 pages that is okay- but please be mindful of your paper’s length.
4 FULL pages in length
If you are covering the material listed above in detail, 4 pages at 1.5 spacing should be achievable.
12 point font
1.5 spacing
8-1.0 inch margins (essentially do not increase the margins from the standard Word Document settings)
Include an introductory and summary paragraph.
If using sources other than the ones provided in this class please include a bibliography. You may choose which formatting you prefer for your bibliography. Your bibliography is supplemental to the 4 pages of analysis required for this project.
You paper should be 4 full pages long, excluding any headings, footings and/or works cited. Please do not use a cover page as part of the 4 pages you will be submitting. It is okay to go over 4 pages, but please try to keep your paper between 4-5 pages if you can.
