Diet Analysis Project

Below are instructions for Cronometer.com.  If you are familiar with another dietary analysis program you may use it as long as it meets the criteria of this project.  If you use another program/website, please include the name of the program/website with your project.

Please read directions carefully!

YOU MUST SUBMIT 

  1. NUTRIENT REPORT (50 POINTS)
  2. ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS (50 POINTS)

Food Journal

Keep a written record of everything you eat and drink for 3 days.  The accuracy of your diet analysis will greatly depend on how well you enter your food intake information into the Cronometer program (or another program of your choice).  In order for the output to be of any value to you, it is extremely important to be as accurate and as truthful as possible when keeping track of the foods/beverages you consume on these days.  The following are some things to note when keeping your food records.

  • Keep your food journal with you for convenience
  • Write down what you eat at the time you ate it, to avoid forgetting things such as snack, drinks, etc
  • Make sure you record portion sizes accurately.  Become familiar with what 1 cup, 1 tablespoon, 4 oz, etc-looks like on a plate or in a glass so you can visually estimate when you don’t have measuring cups or spoons available
  • While you are keeping your record do not change your eating habits.  The main objective of this project is to analyze your current daily eating pattern, so do not try to avoid eating something just because it may be inconvenient to write down or remember
  • Try recording 2 weekdays and 1 weekend day to get a better assessment of your weekly intake

When complete, enter this information into your Cronometer. Pay careful attention to portion size, and additional condiments used in the preparation of the food. If you are having difficulty finding a match for the food eaten, try the best you can to select a food with the closest nutrient profile. 

PLEASE KEEP FOOD DIARY FOR THREE DAYS.  WHEN COMPLETE ENTER THE DATA IN TO CRONOMETER.  PLEASE DO THIS WHEN YOU ARE READY TO COMPLETE PROJECT AND COMPLETE NUTRIENT REPORT.  NUTRIENT REPORT WILL ONLY GO BACK 7 DAYS UNLESS YOU PAY FOR PREMIUM CRONOMETER.  

CRONOMETER

Getting Started:

  • Complete instructions on using Cronometer can be found: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwVXgmubuwgJrxhZXqfs-Wv4tSCwUyeIV (Links to an external site.)
  • Visit the Cronometer website at https://cronometer.com/ (Links to an external site.)  
  • Set up a free account
    • Enter information: Your body type.

Take a few moments to explore this website. This is an extremely helpful and informative resource that is available to the public free of charge. Cronometer can help one determine their calorie needs, make sure they are eating a balanced diet, assess their physical activity level, and gather tips and ideas for eating a healthier diet. This will help reinforce the nutrition concepts taught in this class.

  • Under Diary Tab:
    • Date: top left green tab.

      • Then go to bottom of window to record servings for the day.

      • After day is complete: you must go top right of page.  Click on three  dots.  Click on Day complete. (you must do this)
      • Please do not add supplements.  I feel it is more interesting to see how your diet is without supplements added. 
    • After you have completed entering data for 3 days:
    • Go to Trends:
      • Go to Nutrition Report: This is the average nutritional data for the days that you selected. 
      • Cronometer only allows you to do a Nutrient Report (which is required) for the last 7 days (unless you get premium Cronometer).  
      • In Nutrient Report:
        • Hover over Vitamin/Mineral:  This gives you some great information about the vitamin/mineral and sources. You can use this information to answer questions. 
      • You will notice that the Vitamin/Mineral bars are in Green/Yellow/Red.
        • Green = You met your target.
        • Yellow = You are under your target.
        • Red = You have exceeded the maximum target/upper limit
      • YOU MUST SUBMIT NUTRIENT REPORT (50 POINTS)
        • Click on days: (last 7 days, etc).
