Anna KyobeKine 1164 September 27,2017Diet Analysis Project My macronutrient number ranges for carbohydrates, proteins, and fats were at the recommended values.  I had 250-253 grams of carbohydrates per day the past three days. (September,17th -September 19th) The average intake for carbohydrates for a 2,000-calorie diet is 225 grams to 325. The recommended number for proteins in a 2,000-calroie diet is 46 grams per day, and I consumed 39 grams per day. The recommended number for fats is 44 to 78 grams of fat for a 2,000-calorie diet. I ate only 56 grams.The food that had the most total fat grams was my bacon and eggs, which I had before I went to volleyball practice. The most saturated fat grams would be my entire meal I ordered at Chick-fil-a. I ordered a number 1, the chicken sandwich with medium fries with lemonade. Highest cholesterol would have to the boiled eggs I devoured on September 19th , who would've thought one egg has 195 mg of cholesterol. Most calcium would have to be from the ice cream I had on Sunday, September 17th , with my sister.  Highest sodium would've been a tie between the breakfast bacon strip I had on Sunday or the fries I had at Chick-fil-a. Those fries were very salty, it was such a struggle to eat them with ketchup. The food with the most fiber would be the potato wedges my mom made for dinner. On the My Plate Analysis, I did not reach the preferred amount of servings for each food groups. For fruits I needed two cups per day I consumed three. The servings for proteins each day is five and a half ounces, I ate on average four and a half. The amount of grains needed per day is six ounces, and for the three days recorded I only ate four. The recommended amount of vegetables is two and a half cups and for the three days, I've eaten is two and three-fourths. The dairy suggested servings is three cups, but my consumption was only half a cup. My dairy consumption is low, because we didn't stock up on my lactide pills last week so I had to dial it down a bit with the dairy.To better my grains intake, I can start eating a slice of whole-grain bread with every meal. Instead of the sugary cereal for breakfast, I can replace that with whole-grain cereal. I can avoid white bread. For snacks, I can eat popcorn or I can eat dry rice.My energy balance report is decent. After a long day of school, I am ready to start sleeping, but I can't I cannot start lounging until after all of my homework is finished. As soon as I finish all of my homework I quickly rush to bed to catch some "z's". Going to bed keeps me going throughout the long tiring homework hours. Based on my data, I should be gaining weight from all my volleyball practices. I go to the gym with my friend on Thursdays and we spend 3-4 hours working out and then on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays I have volleyball preseason conditioning. In conditioning, we run at least a mile and a half before practice actually starts. We do a lot of muscle strengthening workouts and because of it, I am expecting a little bit of weight gain.
