Analysing your diet
• To further develop computing and IT skills
• Understand and perform a 24 hour dietary analysis
• Assess the nutrient value of your diet in comparison the Reference Nutrient Intake (RNI)
• Further develop report writing skills (this report will be submitted as coursework)
Using Diet plan 6 and the instructions provided analyse a typical 24 hours food intake.
How much energy (kcal) does your diet provide? What percentage of the kcal comes from protein, fat, carbohydrate and alcohol. Find the amount in grams/mg that the following nutrients contribute to your diet: energy carbohydrate, fat, protein, alcohol, vitamin C and calcium? Compare your results to the RNI.
Writing up the report
The report should be written using the following guidelines:
Describe the reason for doing a dietary analysis and why it is important to get a balance of nutrients in the diet.
In this instance simply state “See handout”
Draw up your own tables showing your intake compared to the RNI of the following nutrients:
Energy (kcal), carbohydrate (g), protein (g), fat (g), alcohol (g), calcium (mg), vitamin C (mg).
Also show how much each of the macronutrients contribute to your energy intake (%)
Give your tables titles and write some explanatory text describing what they show.
