NameInstructor Course Date Nutrition Day One Everybody has varying carbohydrate needs depending on many factors including activities. Carbohydrates are largely the source of body energy, producing 4 calories per gram. The recommended calorie intake in form of carbohydrate is at least 130 grams per day which should constitute about 65 percent of the entire calorie intake (Coleman, 2). Day one’s carbohydrate intake was 605.1 g, broken down into the fibre at 31g, sugars at 295.1, starch at 98.9 and net carbs at 573.4 g. Fat is considered bad or unhealthy but the fact is, if taken in the precise amounts it is very healthy and important to the body, for instance helping with cell walls and protection of the heart and other vital organs. The intake of fats was 134.4 g of the total 4257 kcal. The different types of fats are broken down into Monounsaturated 64.7 g, saturated 17.6 g, Polyunsaturated 21.7g, Omega-3 0.3 g, Omega-6 21.4 g, Trans fats 0.2 g and Cholesterol 150.8 mg. Mineral intake recommended per day is calculated based on a 2000 calorie intake. Day one Calcium intake is 623.8 mg which is low for the recommended 1000 mg for 2000 calories and especially low for 4257 total calorie intake. Copper is at 2.1 which is half the required amount for 4000 kcal. Iron is 44.0 mg, Magnesium at 350.5 mg, Manganese at 8.2 mg, Phosphorus at 882.6 mg which is not half of the required amount of calories above 4000. Potassium is at 2045.3 mg while the required amount is 3500 mg per 2000 calories. Selenium is at 57.1 and zinc at 15.0 mg. Sodium is at 5395.8 mg which is not bad for a calorie intake above 4000.
