Creating a Personal Dietary Plan

Assignment Summary For this assignment, you will construct a personal dietary plan that is reflective of your current diet in terms of its nutritional value. Before creating this plan, you will conduct research to explore current dietary guidelines. You will also evaluate personal barriers, and internal and external influances, to setting nutritional goals, and making food choices. You will use a food log to monitor the progress of meeting these goals. This log will help track your eating habits over the course of five days. After your entire dietary plan is constructed, you will evaluate whether healthy daily nutritional values are being met. You will then participate in a small group discussion.

Creating a Personal Dietary Plan

Background Information Each day, you wake up and make the decision as to what you will eat and when. For example, you may skip breakfast because you are short on time, but you never go to sleep without having a satisfying dinner. The food choices we make greatly impact our health outcomes, both in the short term and long term. Thus, it is important to assess current eating habits to address how these habits impact health. In addition to the prevalence of obesity from unhealthy eating, there is also a high risk of developing chronic diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and different forms of cancer.
