Food Intake Analysis Essay
Food Intake Analysis
Yesterday morning is when I started my food intake analysis by writing down what I ate for the whole day an then go back to my work at night to figure out which foods I ate belonged to what food group. I entered my information to the BMI calculator and heres what my results are Based on the height and weight entered, the BMI is 18.6 , placing the BMI-for-age at the 31st percentile for boys aged 14 years 10 months. This teen has a healthy weight. Eating healthy foods
Participating in physical activity on most (preferably all) days of the week Limiting television viewing I don’t even have cable so I don’t watch television, I BMX and play basket ball very often and I kept the eating healthy foods part in the back of my mind that day.
For breakfast I ate one bowl of cereal and one cup of strawberries (6). The cereal is in the grains group and strawberries are in the fruits group. Later in the day I drank a small Blueberry Pomegranate smoothie from McDonalds which had fourteen ounces in it and belonged to the fruits group. I also bought a salad an that was part of the vegetables group,meats and beans group, the grains group and also the dairy group.
For dinner I had one half of a steak which is in the means and beans group an had seven ounces in it. I also had one egg which is in the dairy group, one medium sized piece of fried doe which belongs to the grains group and one cup of milk.
I think I did good eating, I dont see where I would try to make a better decision during that day besides maybe the smoothie from McDonalds but its a smoothie because they claim to use real fruit when they make them.
