Worksheet on Dietary Intake Name of the Student Professor’s name Abstract A balanced diet as per recommended dietary intake is one of the prerequisites for maintaining optimum health. Moreover, the daily calorie consumption of an individual should meet his or her requirements as per the level of physical activity. A balanced diet contains appropriate amounts of macronutrients and micronutrients. The present article appraised the dietary intake of an individual based on the food items consumed. The report reflected that the individual might suffer from calorie deficiency due to reduced consumption of essential macronutrients. Macronutrients refer to those nutrients, which are required in greater amounts by our body. Carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are known as macronutrients. Although the dietary intake of protein was appropriate; the dietary intake of carbohydrates and fats were far too low. Hence, cereals and green leafy vegetables should be added to the diet chart of the concerned individual. The analysis also reflected that the dietary intake of fibers was also lower than the recommended allowances. Reduced consumption of dietary fibers may increase the risk of constipation. On the other hand, reduced consumption of carbohydrates may reduce the immunity of the concerned individual. Moreover, reduced consumption of fats may reduce the rate of absorption of fat soluble vitamins. Hence, the concerned individual should increase the consumption of cereals and green leafy vegetables.
