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)
