As a college student, it can be hard to eat right, exercise regularly, all while trying to balance a social and an academic life. After completing this nutritional analysis I learned that there are ways to change my daily lifestyle. Throughout this analysis I will discuss my current daily intake compared to the recommended intake, my energy expenditure and body composition, my mood and cognitive behavior, and finally I will set goals and discuss recommendations for myself.
Based on the USDA food patterns chart in our textbook, a person should consume at least one cup fruits, vegetables and dairy products, one ounce grains and proteins, and one teaspoon oil on a daily basis. Looking at this compared to the food listed in my appendix, I could stand to consume more dairy, protein, and fruits, and fewer oils. I can do this by switching water for milk at a meal, putting meat on my salads, and grabbing an apple on my way out the door. Although I am consuming fewer calories than recommended I can still cut out fats by using less dressing, on salads and sandwiches. By switching processed foods for more fresh choices, I will be able to get my daily recommendations for vitamins and minerals as well. Overall, my consumption of recommended nutrients is adequate but could use some adjusting.

Our great country, the United States of America, has prospered for hundreds of years because it has been built upon principles of honesty, integrity, and a desire to better the greater good. How will our society continue to function if it is infiltrated with lies, deceit, and deception? I refer to the case of Hampton Creek, and their product “Just Mayo.” To the average consumer, this product may seem to be another brand of mayonnaise, when in fact it is not.

out what foods contain different organic compounds. The tests were very simple, but the information found with them is very significant. Knowing what organic compounds are in the food we consume can prevent people from having allergic reactions. It can also help us know what foods we should be eating to benefit our bodies.

In another seemingly extreme example, but probably more common than we think, some people pick their noses and eat the boogers, and most wouldn’t want to be caught dead doing so under the scrutiny of others. People want to be viewed a certain way and are willing to alter their innate behaviors in order to be viewed in that light.
To find support for this, I wanted to see for myself how…
