Eating right is a great way to remain healthy and in shape. In this paper I will discuss my current eating habits, as well as recommendations that the super tracker has made for me to reach my Ideal weight compared to my current eating habits. How to modify my diet to use the six classes of nutrients, and the recommended servings for each food group. I will be identifying the six classes of nutrients and explain overall nutrient intake that effects health. Lastly I will be explaining how my new diet and nutrient intake will affect my current and future health.
My current eating habits are crazy right now, I eat anything that I want but I am always complaining about wanting to lose weight. Some days I wake up and I do not want to eat breakfast, and then I will snack until lunch time, and then eat a light lunch, and by the time dinner rolls around I am starving so I pile on the meats, and carbohydrates. Then there are other days when I am starving when I get up in the morning and I eat a bagel for breakfast, and then my lunch is heavy, and my dinner is light. Then I have the days to where I will eat a small breakfast and eat heavy for lunch and dinner. I absolutely do not count the calories, or check the fats and sugars nor the carbohydrates. I eat and drink when I want and whatever I want. It sucks because before I had my two boys I would eat everything and not gain weight, however since I have had children I have went from a size zero to a size 16 and back down to a size 11. I know that it is because of my crazy eating habits and lack of dieting but I am ready to start making a change. Eating right helps to remain healthy and in shape.
My current diet is within the means of the recommendations that I had received from the super tracker. For example According to University of Phoenix Super Tracker (2013), I should consume no more than 2200 calories per day and so far for the last three days I have consumed between 1169 and 1801 calories per day.
