Step 1: Select a common disease/disorder that can be alleviated by appropriate micronutrient consumption; it can be one experienced, currently being experienced, or in desire of being avoided. This is the foundation of the assignment.
Note: unacceptable examples include deficiencies named after the micronutrient and obesity (if the obesity is caused by a “hormone imbalance”, state the name of hormone disorder); these are nutrient imbalances. Eating disorders are also unacceptable, do not select an eating disorder.
Step 2: Focus on one micronutrient. Provide the micronutrient’s RDA based on personal needs (if you are a female, do not use a male’s RDA, for example), and upper limit (if an upper limit for the micronutrient selected has not been established, explicitly state this) .
Step 3: Provide a food log, analyze how much of the particular micronutrient selected is being consumed, and compare the actual intake versus the micronutrient’s established RDA to determine if the actual intake is adequate, inadequate or excessive based on the established upper limit.
The food log is to address one day’s intake of food, but once again, focus only on the micronutrient selected; do not include macronutrients as done in the previous NAAs, or other micronutrients.
Note: Some nutrition labels do not provide the actual quantity and units of the micronutrient on the label, but instead provide a percentage. Students would have to work backwards, utilizing the percentage given and multiplying it by the RDA to obtain the actual quantity.
Example:
Vitamin X (currently not a recognized vitamin, do not research it): 10% per serving
Servings eaten: 2
RDA: 500 mg
Vitamin X amount consumed: 0.1 * 2 * 500 = 100 mg
Also note, if the math utilized above does not make sense, it is highly advised that the student seek a math tutor to refresh/teach the fundamental math utilized above.
Step 4: Close with a statement noting the difference between the RDA versus actual personal intake, and what personal changes can be made to improve on intaking the micronutrient if a deficiency or excess is discovered.

Analysis: Energy Balance 1. (10 pts) Cronometer uses the Mifflin-St Jeor equati

Analysis:
Energy Balance
1. (10 pts) Cronometer uses the Mifflin-St Jeor equation for estimating energy expenditure (“Calories Burned”). How do the provided energy needs from Cronometer compare with the calories you consumed, on average, in Table 1? Are you in energy balance, positive energy balance, or negative energy balance based on the Mifflin-St Jeor estimate? Include the numeric values in your answer.
2. (15 pts) Calculate your energy needs using the Estimated Energy Requirements (EER) equation that you learned about in Chapter 11 of the text. You will need to convert your height and weight to the appropriate units. Be sure to include your work. How do your calculated energy needs compare with the calories you consumed, on average, in Table 1? Are you in energy balance, positive energy balance, or negative energy balance based on the EER estimate?
3. (5 pts) Compare the results of the Mifflin-St Jeor estimate and the EER equation from the text. Which do you feel more accurately represents your daily energy expenditure and why?
Macronutrient Intake
4. (10 pts) Looking at Table 1, compare your average percentage (%) of calories for carbohydrates, total fat, and protein with the Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Ranges (AMDRs) that you listed in the Target column? Include both your intake and the recommendations as part of your answer.
5. (10 pts) Calculate your RDA for protein in grams per day using the recommendations in Chapter 6 of the text. If you believe the RDA is not appropriate for you because you are an active individual, are pregnant, or are breastfeeding, use those recommendations instead (found in the Today’s Dietitian article of the Recommended Readings in Week 3 Learning Resources). Be sure to show your work. How does your average intake from protein in grams in Table 1 compare with your protein needs that you calculated?
6. (5 pts) Compare your fiber intake from Table 1 with the recommendation. Include both your intake and the recommendation as part of your answer.
Micronutrient Intake
7. (10 pts) Looking at Table 2, compare your average intake of the listed vitamins and minerals with the RDA/AIs for those nutrients. What vitamins and minerals are you lacking and what vitamins and minerals are you get plenty of?
8. (5 pts) Referencing your Nutrient Report screenshots, is average nutrient intake for any of the vitamins and minerals putting you at risk for toxicity? To determine this, review Tolerable Upper Limits (found here: Tolerable Upper Limits) for any nutrients over 200% on your Nutrient Report.
Discussion
9. (50 pts) Describe what changes you would need to make to your diet to better meet your recommendations for energy, macronutrients, and micronutrients. Be very specific! If you are lacking in a nutrient, what can you do to increase your intake of that nutrient and if you are getting too much of a nutrient and too much can be bad for you, what can you do to reduce your intake of that nutrient.

For this essay, please review the article (attached below). You must also cite some information from the textbook: ISBN978-1-4665-8995-7
About 1 page or 20% of essay length: Briefly and succinctly, summarize the main issues the article raises (about 1 page or 20% or less of essay length),
About 3 pages or 60% of essay: Based on our textbook readings from this week and at least two (2) additional scholarly sources, explain your response to the article.
Discuss the intersection of food science, food lobbies, and governmental regulations over time. How has each of these influenced the others? What are some specific examples of these influences? Include some thoughtful analysis that goes beyond the repetition of the information presented in your summary.
Address how previous governmental nutritional recommendations have contributed to current adverse health outcome patterns. What current trends in health outcomes might have been avoided had previous governmental nutritional recommendations been more accurate, transparent, evidence-based, etc.?
How have research and special interest groups influenced the government’s regulation of food and recommendations regarding nutrition? Offer some specific examples. In what ways has this been harmful? In what ways has it been beneficial?
About 1 page or 20% of your essay: Share 1-2 of your own recommendations for addressing the conflicts raised and the adverse consequences experienced by the community. How can food science, food lobbies, and/or government regulations address or resolve some of the nutritional issues and problems that are present now in health care and societal health outcomes? Integrate course concepts and provide research support as needed.
The essay must be in APA 7th edition format:
Include a title page and reference page.
Do not include an abstract; instead, include a standard introduction that includes a clear thesis/position statement.
Include a conclusion that reiterates the thesis and summarizes the topics addressed.
Plagiarism Issue: If it is not your original idea, the source(s) must be cited.
Plagiarism Issue: If the words are not your own, these must be separated from yours with quotation marks or block quotations.
Plagiarism Issue: Keep direct quotations to a minimum! Under 10% of your essay is highly recommended. Summarizing and paraphrasing demonstrate stronger critical thinking skills.
All sources must be cited in the text, and all in-text citations must be referenced at the end of the essay.
Exceptional work references course concepts and demonstrates understanding through the application of these.
All papers will be submitted online through TurnItIn.Com, so make sure that when you check for plagiarism it doesn’t reflect on my side.
