Eating habits – 6 points
1. Did you eat breakfast on the days you recorded your food intake?  Is this typical?
2. Did you have lunch and dinner?
3. When do you consume the most calories – what meal and what day of the week.
4. What were the two main reasons for each of the following – a) why did you eat? b) What you ate?
5. What foods do you eat daily?
6. How often did you drink water and did you drink the recommended amount? To find out how much water you should be drinking take your weight in kilograms and divide by 30 and the resulting number is the amount of water you should be drinking in liters e.g. if you weigh 65 kgs = 2.17 liters. Note this is a rough average.

7. You can determine if your diet provides a reasonable proportion of protein, carbohydrate and fat by looking at the DRIs for each of these nutrients and/or the AMDR recommendations (see text book for AMDR numbers). Complete the following table (3).

intake (g)
DRI (target) (g)
AMDR
Proteins

Convert grams to calories and then divide by total kcal and multiply by 100 to get percentage. AMDR can be found in chapter 1.
8. How many grams of DRI of fiber did you consume? How did your consumption compare to the target number? (1)
9. What percent of calories do you consume for the following; saturated fat, monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat do you consume? (1) You have to calculate percent, see directions in #7.
