* How does your diet compare to the recommendations you received from the Food Guide Pyramid? How many servings from each food group did you consume? *
* According to the Food Guide Pyramid, I was below the suggested amount of calories, but my fat, cholesterol, and sodium were well above the recommended amounts. I had 6.8 cups of grain (6 cups recommended), vegetables 2 cups (2.5 cups recommended), fruit 0.5 cups (2.5 cups recommended), milk 1.3 cups (3 cups recommended), meat and beans 2.3 cups (5 cups recommended). *

* How might you modify your diet to get the recommended servings for each food group? What are some nutrient-rich foods that you could add to your daily diet? *
* The way I plan to modify my diet to get the recommended servings for each food * group is to increase my fruit and vegetable servings by having fresh fruit and raw vegetables for snacks. I need to eat small amounts more frequently instead of having one large meal. I will increase my milk servings by having cereal with milk for breakfast and a small serving of fresh fruit. I can also increase my milk intake by having cottage cheese and fruit for a snack. Fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, milk/cottage cheese, and cereal are all nutrient-rich foods that I can add to my daily diet. * Examine the food labels for three of the items included on your food diary. List the following components for each of the items:

* Total calories per serving: 340
* Percentage of calories from fat: 130 calories (approximately 27%) * Total amount of carbohydrates (in grams): 34g

* Total amount of protein (in grams): 18g
* Total amount of fiber (in grams): 3g
