NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 2
Diet Analysis Project PART 2 – INSTRUCTIONS
It’s time to apply your new skills with D&W+ to your own diet.
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Track your own food and beverage intake for 3 days using D&W+.
Record ALL the foods and beverages you consume during a three-day period. The
three days should include two weekdays and one weekend day.
For best results:



Choose three non-consecutive days, one weekend day and two weekdays.
(When you use only consecutive days, you might report the same leftover
foods for all 3 days, which is not a good representation of your long-term diet
habits.)
See the “Tips for a good dietary analysis” in the assignment folder on
Blackboard.
Record the foods and beverages you consume at the time you consume
them. There is a food record form on the following page, which you can print
out and carry with you, or log your intake in another way that works for you.
Later, enter the foods into D&W+ on your computer.
10
NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 2
Food Record Form (optional)
Include all foods and beverages consumed. The more detail you include the better your
results will be when you enter the information into D&W+. For each food or beverage,
mark which meal it was consumed for (B, L, D, S).

2. Generate and Save your D&W+ Reports.
a. Create a 3-Day Average report, selecting the three dates of your food
records.
b. Create a Source Analysis report for dietary fiber, selecting the three dates
of your food records.
c. When your report results appear on the screen, click to “print” and then
choose the option to “Save as PDF” and save a copy in PDF format on
your computer.
NOTE: Refer to video and instructions in Part 1 for how to generate reports.
Points will be deducted if the report is missing, incomplete, incorrect, non-PDF
format, or if unrelated reports are included.
3. Use your report to answer the following questions.
Questions 1-5 ask you to assess the nutritional quality of your diet by comparing your nutrient
intake to the recommended amounts.
Do not yet discuss the changes you will make to your diet – this will be addressed in Parts 3&4.



Be sure to read each question carefully and answer ALL PARTS of each
question to get full points. Consult the rubric on the last page to see how
answers will be graded.
Blue font indicates where to write your answers.
Orange font shows you examples of possible/suggested answers.
Question 1: Calories (5 points)
Section of the report to reference: Intake vs. Goals table
12
NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 2
Reflect on how your calorie intake (‘Intake’ column) compares with your estimated
calorie needs (‘DRI’ column):
• Do you think the DRI estimate of your calorie needs is correct? Why or why
not? If not, how many calories do you think are appropriate for you?
• Do you think the D&W+ estimate of your average calories eaten (‘Intake’) is
correct? Why or why not?
Type answer here in blue text, please.
Question 2: Macronutrients (6 points)
Examine the distribution of your calories between carbohydrate, protein, and fat by
inputting your numbers into the tables below, then answer the questions below.
Macronutrient ranges (%): See the Macronutrient Ranges figure and table

Question 3: Dietary Fiber (4 points)
Section of the report to reference: Intake Spreadsheet + click on “Dietary Fiber,
Total” to get to Source Analysis, Dietary Fiber
How does your dietary fiber intake (‘Intake’) compare to your target amount (‘DRI’)?
a. Have you reached your recommended target fiber amount in this report?
b. If not, how far away are you (in this report) from your target fiber goal?
c. Which foods in your diet contributed the highest percentages of your daily fiber
intake? Include the percentages for the five foods that contributed the most to
your fiber intake. (Hint: look for the gold and silver stars on your Source
Analysis).
Type answer here in blue text, please.
Question 4: Micronutrients (8 points)
Section of the report to reference: Intake vs. Goals table
For each micronutrient (vitamins and minerals) that you are under- or over-consuming
(for this answer, look at nutrients either 125% of your recommended DRI,
respectively) list each nutrient in the table below and describe the possible
consequences of your under or overconsumption.
• Please use your textbook for this information. It is a reliable source with great
information. You have all the information you need in Chapter 7 (especially
Tables 7-8 and 7-9) and Chapter 8 (especially Table 8-12).
14
NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 2



You may use your own information from an internet search if you would like, but
you will be responsible for assuring that it is a reliable source and INCLUDING
THE CITATION INFORMATION ON THE CHART.
You do not need to list the consequences of under- and over-consumption of a
nutrient. Just list the consequences for your level of consumption (under or
over).
If consumption of a micronutrient is low/high but you do not think it is likely to
have consequences, you are welcome to indicate why, but be sure to address
any potential consequences listed in the book.

Potential Consequences (from the

I consumed only 50% of the calcium
that is recommended for a female my
age. This may result in my bones
being less dense, and ultimately put
me at increased risk of osteoporosis
and bone fractures later in life. My
grandmother has been diagnosed
with osteoporosis, which increases
this risk!” (You would not need to
comment about the consequences of
calcium toxicity in this case!)
I consumed 200% of my Vitamin C
DRI, but this level is well below the
UL and therefore does not pose a
toxicity problem for me. I do not need
to stop consuming oranges and bell
peppers, which contribute most of my
Vitamin C, because the Vitamin C
does not pose a danger and these
foods provide other essential
nutrients that I need, like fiber and
potassium.

The D&W+ report cannot provide an estimation of the whole grains consumed. Review
the foods that you have consumed in your Intake Spreadsheets, and
a. make a list below of all your food items that contained grains and note
which ones contained whole grains. Include this list below, and
b. use this list to estimate what percentage of your total grains were whole
grains.
c. PLEASE NOTE: you may want to review the video on whole grains in
Module 4 before making your list. Remember that a whole grain is in
something that has “whole grain” or “whole wheat,” etc. listed in the
ingredients on a package, or it is an intact grain such as brown rice,
quinoa, steel-cut oats, etc. Anything containing wheat flour, corn flour,
etc., should be included in your list below.

PART 3 – INSTRUCTIONS
Part 3) Use your D&W+ report to assess the nutritional quality of your diet.
INSTRUCTIONS




Wait until you have received feedback from your instructor on Part 2 of this
project before continuing on to Part 3. He/she may recommend suggestions for
editing your D&W+ entry in order to get a more accurate assessment of your diet.
If so, you’ll need to go back to D&W+, change the foods you entered, and then
generate new reports.
Be sure to read each question carefully and answer ALL PARTS of each
question to get the full points. Consult the rubric on the last page to see how
answers will be graded.
Blue font indicates where to write your answers.
Orange font shows you examples of possible/suggested answers.
Question 6 asks you to evaluate your risk for heart disease, based on the composition of your diet
(as identified in Part 2), and the risk factors we discussed in lecture.
Question 6 – Cardiovascular and Chronic Disease Risk (20 points)
Given that many Americans are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD),
evaluate how your diet contributes to your risk of CVD by answering the following
questions.
a. List all the DIETARY risk factors for heart disease (NOTE: your book has all of
this information for you; you do not need to do additional research – look at
Tables 11-1 and 11-3).
Type answer here in blue text, please.
b. Getting more specific, what are the essential nutrients and/or food groups that
are of key importance to consider when assessing one’s diet for cardiovascular
health? Be as specific as you can. You should have at least 5 separate
nutrients or food groups. Include essential nutrients/foods that must be
consumed in adequate amounts (those that promote cardiovascular health)
and nutrients/foods that must be limited to reduce CVD risk. Please explain
which nutrients increase or decrease risk. (NOTE: your book has all of this
information for you; you do not need to do additional research. Look especially at
pages 405-409 and the “Food Feature” on page 422).
Type answer here in blue text, please.
19
NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 3
c. Then, use the information above to identify any dietary risk factors in your
3-day food record.
Type answer here in blue text, please.
d. Identify one other chronic disease that is associated with diet. Then, find a
scientific source that makes dietary recommendations. Summarize the dietary
recommendations and cite the article here. Then, use these
recommendations to assess if your diet contains any risk factors for this
disease. (Examples include Type 2 diabetes, obesity, chronic kidney disease,
osteoporosis, and certain cancers.)
Type answer here in blue text, please.
Questions 7 and 8 ask you to assimilate all of your answers from Questions 1-6, and use this
information to make recommendations to improve your diet.
Question 7: Quality of Your Overall Diet (20 points)
Based on your detailed answers to questions 1 through 6, write a paragraph or more
to summarize and discuss the overall nutritional adequacy of your diet. Answer
the following questions in your discussion:
• Do you think that this three-day record was representative of your usual dietary
intake? Why or why not? How does that affect your interpretation of your
results?

The results can be overwhelming when looking at the lists of nutrients. Please
simplify your results, making connections between nutrients and types of foods
(for example, fiber and fruit/veg/whole grain intake, or saturated fat and
dairy/meat intake, etc), while still addressing all under- or over-consumption in
your 3-day report.
o Example: I am deficient in Vitamins X, Y and Z and Minerals P and Q.
This does not surprise me because they are all found in fresh fruits and
veggies; therefore, my consumption could be improved if I consumed
more fresh fruits and vegetables. Also, I am low in the dairy food group
(50% of goal), which matches my individual nutrient intake because I was
also low in Vitamins L and M, and mineral R and these are nutrients
primarily found in dairy.
20
NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 3

Be sure to include the following aspects of your report in your discussion:
o Sodium – (you can click on the “sodium” in your report to get to a “Source
Analysis” to see which foods added to your sodium intake).
o Fiber – (you can click on “fiber” in your report to get to a “Source Analysis”
to see which foods added to your fiber intake).
o Saturated fat – (you can click on “saturated fat” in your report to get to a
“Source Analysis” to see which foods added to your saturated fat intake).
o Empty calories
o Fruit and vegetable intake
Type answer here in blue text, please.
Question 8: Specific Goals (10 points)
Now that you have thoroughly analyzed your diet and identified all the things you could
do to improve your diet, take a few minutes to think about what changes are both high
priority and realistic for you to do. Pick two things RELATED TO YOUR DIET that
you would like to work on in the next few months to improve your diet, and write
SMART goals to set yourself up for success.
SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound.
Here’s an example of a SMART goal, and how it meets the individual criteria:
Example SMART Goal:
Here are a few additional guidelines to help you formulate your goals:
21
NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 3




You may not use dietary supplements to correct deficiencies (for the purposes
of this exercise).
Your food choices must be realistic and accessible to you. (If you live in a dorm
without a kitchen, your suggestions should focus on foods accessible on campus.)
Be mindful not to create a new nutrient imbalance while fixing another. (For
example, if your saturated fat intake is already high, you should not suggest
consuming whole eggs to increase your protein intake.)
Be sure to include all elements of a SMART goal. Wikipedia has a nice summary
of SMART goals, if you still have questions:
o http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMART_criteria
Please write two SMART goals below, focusing on areas of your diet that you would like

Why?
Type answer here in blue text, please.
It’s been a few weeks since you submitted your SMART goals. Write a paragraph or more to
reflect on the following:
• What strategies have you used to accomplish your goals? Or what strategies are you
still considering to accomplish your goals?
• What obstacles have you encountered or what obstacles do you think you might
encounter in trying to achieve your goals?
• What additional strategies could you add in the future to accomplish your goals,
including how you can overcome any obstacles?
Example STRATEGIES TO ACCOMPLISH THE EXAMPLE GOAL:
• Once a week at the grocery store, I will purchase bananas, apples and oranges (or
other seasonal fruit) to keep in my apartment. I will put one of these in my book bag
every day to have as a snack between classes/meetings.
• When I eat lunch on campus:
o At the buffet, I will get 1 cup of fruit (usually cantaloupe or honeydew).
o At the convenience store, I will buy a fruit cup or banana.
• I can also buy applesauce and canned fruit (in fruit juice) to keep at home to eat when I
don’t make it to the grocery store to buy fresh fruit.
• I have recruited a friend (/family member) to work on the same goal as me; we eat a lot
of meals together in the dining hall (/at home), and we’ll help each other eat a serving a
fruit before choosing dessert.

NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 4
Question 10: Envisioning the Impact of Your Dietary Changes (25 points)
You have two options for how to complete this question:
• Option 1: Edit your existing 3-day food records according to your SMART goals and
strategies. Analyze the differences in your reports.
• Option 2: Dive in! Make changes to your actual diet according to your SMART goal
and strategies. Record your food/beverage intake in D&W+ again for 1-3 days. Then,
analyze the differences in your reports.
Pick one of your two SMART goals from above.
(Please copy and paste it here)
Then….
Option 1 Instructions:
Open D&W+ on your computer, and navigate
back to the dates for which you completed
Part 2. Days where you reported foods will be
highlighted in green on your calendar:
Click on your three report days from Part 2 to
see your original food lists. For each day,
change your food lists according to the
strategies you listed for your SMART goal.
(You may need to add or delete foods from
your list, depending on your goal.)
Option 2 Instructions:
Start making changes to the foods and beverages you consume according to
your SMART goals. When you’re ready, use D&W+ to track your food/beverage
intake again for 1-3 days.
For both options: Generate a new set of reports:
➢ 3-Day Average
➢ Others, as appropriate (For example, if your goal is to decrease Saturated Fat,
you can generate the Source Analysis report for Saturated Fat.)
Use the new reports to assess if your strategy was effective at achieving your goal. Write two
paragraphs or more discussing the following:
• Describe the specific changes you made.
26
NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 4

Explain which part(s) of the report(s) you used to determine whether or not you
had met your goal, including specific numbers (percentages, grams, servings,
etc.)

Explain if your intake of any other nutrients/food groups also changed in a positive
or negative way.

After analyzing the differences between your old and new 3-Day Average report,
discuss whether are there any other changes you still want to make to your diet. Why or
why not?
Example answer (Option 1): I chose to work on my goal to eat 2 servings of fruit per
day. To see if my proposed strategies would be enough to achieve my goal, I made the
following changes to my reports: I added a snack pack of applesauce as an evening
snack for Monday and Thursday, and a banana and orange for my morning snacks on
those same days. For Saturday (when I work as a waitress at the diner), I don’t have as
much time to eat, so I only included one fruit snack, a banana mid-morning. When I
look at the MyPlate report for the average of those three days, my fruits intake went up
from 0.5 cups per day (25% of goal) on the old report, to 2.25 cups per day (113% of
goal).
If I were to make those changes to my real diet, I would be meeting my goal
of 2 servings of fruit per day! Thankfully, my calories only went up by 100 calories per
day (now 103% of my goal), and my fiber intake also increased by 6 grams per day
(now 89% of my goal).
After analyzing my new report and seeing how relatively easily I can change my diet
and have an impact on my nutrient intake, I think I will choose an additional new
strategy each month. For example, I may try to add a side salad at dinner a couple of
nights a week to increase my vegetable intake.
Type answer here in blue text, please.
Question 11: Envisioning a Better Food Environment (10 points)
Think about the foods that are easily available to you, and ponder how this might impact the
foods you ultimately eat. Then, write a paragraph discussing the following:
o How difficult is it for you to eat a diet that contains appropriate nutrients and food
groups? Why is this so?
27
NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 4
o What changes would you like to see happen in our food system (grocery stores,
restaurants, cafeterias, convenience stores, etc.) that would make it easier eat a
diet that promotes health? Provide at least two separate examples.
o Describe at least one thing that you could do to encourage these changes
to happen
▪ Example: I would like to see healthier options labeled in the cafeteria
because….. (Then, elaborate on why you’d like to see this and a possible
way you could help it happen!)

 Source Analysis
This report shows how each food contributes to the total intake of the nutrient selected. On the percentage scale, “100%”
means the total amount of the nutrient you actually ate. (It does not mean the total recommended amount.) A gold star
marks foods containing more than 20% of the DV. A silver star marks foods containing 10% to 20% of the DV. Your actual
intakes of some nutrients, such as vitamin E, may be higher than those shown in the report because of incomplete food
composition data provided by manufacturers.

Question 1: Calories (5 points)
Section of the report to reference: Intake vs. Goals table
Reflect on how your calorie intake (‘Intake’ column) compares with your estimated
calorie needs (‘DRI’ column):
• Do you think the DRI estimate of your calorie needs is correct? Why or why
not? If not, how many calories do you think are appropriate for you?
• Do you think the D&W+ estimate of your average calories eaten (‘Intake’) is
correct? Why or why not?
My calorie intake is at 1459.328 kcal while my DRI is 2100 Kcal. This implies my calorie intake
is significantly lower than my DRI. I think the DRI estimate is accurate considering my age,
weight, gender, and sedentary lifestyle. I believe the calorie needs are not too high and
correspond with food I can be able to consume although it does not reflect on my calorie intake,
the reason I was not able to attain this is that I have a busy schedule, and the foods consume were
not able to fill the recommended calories. I also think the D&W+ estimate of my average
calories eaten is correct because all the foods I consumed were accurately recorded
and included in the analysis.
Question 2: Macronutrients (6 points)
Examine the distribution of your calories between carbohydrates, proteins, and fat by
inputting your numbers into the tables below, then answer the questions below.

Diet Analysis Project PART 2 – INSTRUCTIONS
It’s time to apply your new skills with D&W+ to your own diet.
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Track your own food and beverage intake for 3 days using D&W+.
Record ALL the foods and beverages you consume during a three-day period. The
three days should include two weekdays and one weekend day.
For best results:



Choose three non-consecutive days, one weekend day and two weekdays.
(When you use only consecutive days, you might report the same leftover
foods for all 3 days, which is not a good representation of your long-term diet
habits.)
See the “Tips for a good dietary analysis” in the assignment folder on
Blackboard.
Record the foods and beverages you consume at the time you consume
them. There is a food record form on the following page, which you can print
out and carry with you, or log your intake in another way that works for you.
Later, enter the foods into D&W+ on your computer.
10
NUTR 295 – Diet Analysis Project – Part 2

mark which meal it was consumed for (B, L, D, S).
