Food Journal

Learning Goal: I’m working on a nursing writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Step 1: Track your food over the course of a minimum of 3 days. (10 points)

Place the food you consumed into a food tracker app (MyFitness Pal, etc.) or into a paper journal. Be specific with your portion sizes and quantities. Connect also has a tracker you can use for free called Nutrition Calc. You may create your food log in that as well.

Your food journal should include the following information:

· All of the food that you consume. This includes all meals, snacks, desserts, etc.

· All of the beverages you consume. This includes water, alcoholic, and non-alcoholic beverages.

· All of the supplements, vitamins, etc. that you consume.

· Include a full weekend: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to compare to your weekday choices.

· Include any exercise or physical activity.

Step 2: Enter your food and beverages from your journal into a Nutrition App of your choice, (ex. FitGenie or MyFitness Pal, Nutrition Calc).

· If you have already tracked your food in an APP, you do not have to re-enter your food a second time.

The Food tracking App must allow the option for foods and beverages to be categorized into carbs, fats, and protein- not just calories.

Step 3: Give a reflection summary about what you learned regarding your diet.

· What are your initial thoughts about your diet? (10 points)

· Would you change anything about your diet? (10 points)

· Do you feel your typical diet was reflective of this food journal? Why or Why not? (10 points)

· If you were presenting this to a Registered Dietitian, what clinical observations might they make? (10 points)
