1 Diet Analysis Project PART I Due TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2009 Activity 1: Keeping a Two-Day Diet Intake Record BACKGROUND INFORMATION: You will be listing everything you eat and drink for 2 days (one weekend day and one week day). Choose days that are representative of your typical food intake. Your original, handwritten food intake record forms, with your name on them, must be completed prior to the computer portion of this project and must accompany each part of this project. Please try to eat what you usually eat. Knowing you have to record the food eaten will undoubtedly make some differences in your choices, but try to keep this effect to a minimum. You will not be graded on what or how much you eat. The analysis you will receive from the computer printouts will only be as accurate as the information you provide, so BE HONEST and specific. Record all food and beverages (including water) as soon as possible after consuming them to ensure the greatest accuracy. Don?t trust your memory! INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Record the time and place (e.g. dorm room, restaurant, friend?s house, etc.) that the food or beverage is consumed. 2. Record every item consumed. Please be as specific as possible to aid you with computer entry and food substitutions if necessary. This means including all snacks, beverages, and any condiments added to food before, during, or after preparation such as mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, butter, margarine, salt, oils added in cooking, dressings on salads, jam, jelly, cream, and sugar. Do not include spices. ? Record all beverages consumed, including water. Be sure to note if beverages such as coffee, tea and soda pop are caffeinated or not. ? Record all amounts/types of alcoholic beverages if consumed as well. Also, record the amount of juice/mixers used along with the alcoholic portion (e.g. one screwdriver may consist of 6 fluid ounces of orange juice and 1.5 fluid ounces of vodka). ? Record vitamin and/or mineral supplements taken, noting the nutrient content. However, do not enter these supplements into the computer. You will analyze your diet based on the nutrient contribution of food only. All calculations in the project should be based on your vitamin and mineral intake from food only. But you should enter protein shakes, energy bars and any other product that contributes calories. 3. Record the amount of each item consumed. It is important to record the amounts as accurately as possible, in household measurements. In order to be consistent, please only use teaspoons, tablespoons, cups, ounces (for grains and meats/beans), fluid ounces (liquids) 2 or number of items (i.e. one apple). Do not use servings; indicate actual amounts. You may find the information on food labels helpful for converting amounts consumed to estimated measurement (i.e. a slice of bread is approximately one ounce). Do not simply record the amount listed as one serving on your food record; instead, record the actual amount you consumed. 4. For complex mixture foods (e.g. casserole, salad), record each ingredient separately. 5. Record additional information, such as the method of food preparation: e.g. if you had eggs, write down whether they were fried, hard boiled, or poached. This is to aid you in selecting items in Diet Analysis? +. Also, include brand names, type, variety and anything else specific to the item. The information contained in the original records will be considered your actual food intake, which the rest of the project should be based on. Do not change any of this information at a later time. You may only add detail. Use the Diet Record Forms provided on the following pages. If you cannot fit your foods for each day on one form, photocopy the form or get an additional copy off of the web site and continue your list. 3 Diet Record Example - DAY 1 Name Mary Smith________________________ _____Sunday________________2/8/09_____ Day Date Include meals, snacks, and all food and beverages eaten from the time you get up in the morning to the time you go to bed at night.

Note the type of information that is recorded. This example is typed for ease of reading, but your diet records (the ones you carry around with you so you could record what you ate) will be handwritten. Do not retype your original diet records. Use the forms provided. 4 Activity 1 ? Diet Intake Record ?

Do not use any earlier version of this program. The Diet Analysis? + program is also installed in the Food Science and Nutrition library computer lab (FScN 220, St. Paul campus). No personal software is needed if using this computer lab. However, you must bring a flash drive to save your data so you can modify it at a later time, if necessary. You can save your profile (along with any diet records you have created) using the ?Export? feature and load them using the import feature. More information on how to do this can be found by looking in ?Help? and choosing ?exporting a profile? and ?importing a profile.? DO NOT SAVE ANY DATA TO THE COMPUTERS IN THE LAB. DIET ENTRY PROCEDURES USING DIET ANALYSIS PLUS Follow the ?Quick Start? instructions provided in the Diet Analysis? + booklet that accompanied the CD. You will create a profile, track your diet and create/print some reports. You do not need to track your activities for the purpose of this project. PRINTING REPORTS: After you have created your profile and input your foods from your worksheet, double check that your food items and their amounts are correct. Choose ?Print? next to ?Foods Eaten? to get a print out of the foods and serving sizes entered for each day. Then choose to ?View Reports? and you will be given a list of reports to choose from. You will need to print one copy of your ?Profile DRI Goals? and the following reports for Day 1 and Day 2 after you have entered each day?s foods: 1) ?Foods Eaten? (from the data entry screen); 2) ?Intake vs. Goals? (from the ?View Reports? menu). Therefore, you will have a total of 5 printouts. ? Note: You should have a total of two reports for day 1, two reports for day 2, and one copy of your Profile DRI Goals to turn in. 7 CHECKLIST FOR THE PROJECT: Part I Before submitting your project for Part I, use this list to make sure that you have met all of the project?s criteria for organization. If pages are missing from your project at the time of submission, they cannot be added at a later time. What you turn in is what will be graded. Proofread your printouts for data entry errors. This part of the project may be submitted for points up to one day late; 5 points will be subtracted from your score each day it is late for the first two days past the due date. If turned in two days late no points will be given. It is important to have Part I graded even if it is late! Calculations for Parts II and III rely on accurate information from Part I. It is essential to do well on Part I in order to accurately complete Parts II and III. You may turn in a late project to one of the TAs at class or to a secretary in FScN 225. Make sure to get a receipt once you?ve turned in the project. Arrange the various sections of your project in the following order: 1. Typed cover sheet Name, date of project submission, course number/section, course title. 2. Day 1: Original, handwritten diet record 3. Day 1: Computer Printouts (2) (?Foods Eaten? AND ?Intake vs. Goals?) 4. Day 2: Original, handwritten diet record 5. Day 2: Computer Printouts (2) (?Foods Eaten? AND?Intake vs. Goals?) 6. Profile DRI Goals Report computer printout (1) 7. Grade sheet for Part I *The project must be well stapled or fastened in the left-hand corner. *Please do not use folders or project covers. *Make a photocopy of this part of the project for your files before submitting. You are responsible for having a copy of your project in case your original is lost! 8 DIET ANALYSIS PROJECT PART I GRADE SUMMARY Activity Number Activity Title Possible Points Your Points TA Initials Activity 1 Weekday and Weekend Diet Records 3 Activity 2 Profile DRI Goals report Computer Printouts for Day 1 (Foods Eaten, Intake vs. Goals) 1 2 Activity 3 Computer Printouts for Day 2 (Foods Eaten, Intake vs. Goals) 2 Format (Typed cover sheet, grade sheet attached, legible work, and stapled/clipped securely) 2 Part I Sub-Total 10 Deductions for being late (-5 points/day) Net Score For Part I YOUR PART I SCORE ___________ THESE PROBLEMS WILL RESULT IN DEDUCTIONS: ?
