Project: Final Project: Analyze Your Diet With MyDietAnalysis

For the past 4 weeks, you have been learning how the science of nutrition affects the health of the human body. The MyDietAnalysis program provided the opportunity to analyze your own nutrition habits and apply the lessons from this course.
Now, in your Final Project, you will provide a detailed analysis of your findings from the MyDietAnalysis program, correlate those findings to course information, and recommend dietary modifications to meet your daily nutritional requirements.
To prepare for this Final Project:

  • Review your completed Final Project Milestones.
  • Think about how you eat and what you eat.
  • Consider the changes you could make to improve your health.

The Final Project:

  • Write a 4- to 6-page formal report that analyzes your 3-day diet using the MyDietAnalysis program. You will specify the total values of dietary intake for various vitamins, minerals, and organic compounds. You will also evaluate the effectiveness of this 3-day diet and recommend modifications that may be needed to meet daily requirements. Your Final Project should include all of the steps taken to complete this project. This includes:
    • Title Page
    • Introduction
    • Part I
      • Steps 1–3
      • Your 3-day diet written out and given motivation codes
      • Your Actual Intakes vs. Recommended Intakes and Activity Summary reports
    • Part II
      • Step 4
      • 4–6 pages analyzing your diet
    • References

As a reminder, here is a more detailed description of each of the Final Project Steps:

Final Project Steps

Step 1: Record everything you eat and drink for 3 days in a row.

  • Record all the foods and beverages you consume over the course of 3 days. The best 3 days to choose are 2 weekdays and a weekend day, although it is your decision as to which days contain the most “normal” food consumption for you. Do not alter your normal eating pattern.
  • In a lab notebook or food diary, record the amount of food and beverages consumed, including water. Do not record any mineral or vitamin supplements. Do record protein supplements.
  • Be sure to describe each food completely. This includes brand names, ingredients in a recipe, etc. For homemade items, be sure to record portions of all the components in your food, because you will input them separately if no comparable meal can be found in MyDietAnalysis.
  • Record any exercise you perform.
  • Make note of how you feel physically and emotionally after you eat a specific food or meal. Great insight can be gained by closely observing how your body reacts to foods.

Step 2: Organize your recorded information.

  • Type each day’s food and beverages into the menu form: breakfast, snack, lunch, etc. Include everything from your food diary or lab notebook and record them separated by day.
  • Label each item on your menu with the code or codes that indicate why you chose to eat that food or drink that beverage.

CodeMotivationAPersonal preference (I like it.)BHabit or tradition (It’s familiar; I always eat it.)CSocial pressure (It was offered; I couldn’t refuse.)DAvailability (I was hungry and it was nearby.)EConvenience (I was too rushed to prepare anything else.)FEconomy (It was a food I could afford.)GHealth value (I think it is healthy for me to eat.)HAdvertisingIOther (explain)
Step 3: Enter your organized diet information into the MyDietAnalysis program.

  • Enter the foods you ate into the MyDietAnalysis program.
  • Be sure to create a new profile to reflect your recorded information. The program will ask you questions about yourself—be honest! It is important to capture your true self for MyDietAnalysis to be accurate and representative of your needs.
  • After you have created your profile, click on the DIET TRACKER tab at the top of the program.
  • Enter your foods as accurately as possible. Do this for each new day and save changes when finished.
  • Next, click on the ACTIVITY TRACKER and record any additional exercise you may have completed above and beyond your profile’s activity level. (For example, if you are sedentary and you walk the dog, realize that this activity is included in the sedentary profile. However, if you run for 10 minutes this should be added as additional exercise.)
  • Finally, click on the REPORTS tab.
  • Download the Actual Intakes vs. Recommended Intakes and the Activity Summary reports as PDF documents. This information will be included in your final report.

Steps 1–3 will be due by Day 7 of Week 3.
Step 4: Analyze your diet in a formal report.
Include the following information:

  1. List any vitamins and minerals that averaged less than 100% of the RDA.
  2. For each vitamin or mineral that averaged less than 100% of the RDA, suggest two foods that would increase the amount of that nutrient in your diet.
    • Why did you pick those foods? Are they realistic to YOUR diet?
    • Suggest ways you would incorporate them directly into your diet.
  3. How many grams of fiber did you consume per day?
    • What is the recommended intake per day?
    • If you ate less than the recommended daily intake, how could you realistically increase your fiber?
    • If you ate more than the recommendation, what are the foods in your diet that are contributing to this total?
    • Please be sure to describe the differences between soluble fiber and insoluble fiber.
  4. How many different fruits, vegetables, and grains did you consume daily?
    • Could your diet benefit from more diversity? Why?
    • What are some of the reasons fruits and vegetables are hard to include in your diet? Is it because of past memories of eating them? Taste? If you love fruits and vegetables, can you offer an idea why others may not?
    • What is it about fruits and vegetables that make them so nutritious? Discuss three major components of these foods and why they are beneficial.
  5. What have you learned about your eating habits? Pay attention to the codes you assigned to your foods.
  6. Provide your overall observations of your diet. Summarize your codes and reflect on what is your major driving force when it comes to food.
  7. Describe any changes that you have made or plan to make as a result of this exercise. Provide a detailed answer to receive full credit. Answers such as “I plan to eat more fruits and vegetables” without a clear plan will not be awarded full points.

Directions for formatting your Final Project report:

  • Keep all data in one file (unless different formats do not allow them to be together in one file).
  • Cite at least three APA-formatted scientific references. You do not need to reference your values from MyDietAnalysis. (In other words, if you consumed 5000mg of sodium, you don’t need to reference that.)
  • Be sure to complete the assignment in complete essay form. (Do not write the question and then the answer—use full paragraphs.) The 4- to 6-page requirement does notinclude your charts and motivation codes.
  • Use double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman, and APA format. Page count is 4–6 pages. A template for this paper can be found at the Walden Writing Center. Click on the plus sign next to Course Paper and then click on the APA Course Paper Template with Advice (6th ed.). This template will help you format your Final Project paper correctly.
By Day 7

Submit your Final Project.

Course Project: Experiment Report
Assignment Description: The course project is designed to focus on experimental design. As future scientists this project orients you to the process of experimental design. It entails designing an experiment using the Vernier instrumentation (gas pressure sensor). The results of the experiment are to be presented in a lab report format. The information in the experiment report should match the experiment design presented earlier. You will share your experiments and results with the class in the last forum of the class.
Instructions: For the course project you must perform, analyze and share and the results of an experiment of your own design. You have already turned in and received feedback on your experiment design. You need to carry out your experiment as designed incorporating feedback. With the data collected you will analyze your results and draw conclusions. Your information must then be submitted as a lab report. Directions on how to write a lab report are found below and in the attached Guidlines for Scientific Papers. You will need to fill out the self grading sheet as part of this assignment. Make sure you read through the grading rubric so that you understand all the information that is required. Your assignment will be automatically submitted to TurnItIn with your submission. Make sure you follow APA reference and citation technique.
How to Write An Experiment Report
Experiment or lab reports are an excellent way to practice scientific writing. Scientific writing is a style of writing that places a premium on clear, concise language. You should write efficiently and without excess verbiage. This means you want to avoid using more words when fewer will do.
Researchers must pay by the page to have their work published. They want to spend as little as possible on publication, saving more money to fund the actual research. By writing as efficiently as possible they can eliminate excess verbiage and decrease the cost of publication. You will practice this style of writing in your lab reports for the course project.
Lab reports for this course project will have the following style.

  1. Use 12 point font
  2. The report should be written in the 3rd person. Do not use personal pronouns (I, us, we).

Example written incorrectly in 1st person: I applied 5mL of water to each plant daily.
Example written correctly in 3rd person: 5ml of water was applied to each plant daily.

  1. Make sure to use the correct tense. If you are talking about something that has happened in the past, use past tense. Present tense can be used when referring to scientific principle such as “Meiosis involves two divisions.”
  2. Use APA formatted references and in text citations. Direct quotations should not be used in lab reports. Any information that is not common knowledge needs to be cited. When in doubt, cite it. Failure to cite information can be plagiarism. For more information on what constitutes plagiarism go here. If you need to review APA formatting for references and citations go here and scroll down to the bottom of the page (citation examples section).
  3. The experiment/lab report should be organized into the following sections: Title, Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Literature Cited. Details about each section are found below and in the attached Guidelines to Scientific Papers resource.

The title of the experiment/lab report should be descriptive. It should state what you are studying and what variable was manipulated. It should be on a separate title page that includes the students name, course section and date.
The abstract is a one paragraph summary of the entire lab report. It should state the purpose of the study, what was done, what was found and what was concluded. Even though it goes at the beginning of the report, you should write this after you have completed the entire lab report.
The introduction section of the report should define the topic and explain its importance. It should share some background information related to the research that you used to help you design your experiment as well as state the research question and your hypothesis. It should me no longer than 1 page in length.  MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IN TEXT CITATIONS HERE!(See Guidelines to Scientific Papers resource below for more details)
The methods section should explain how the experiment was conducted. It should not be a list or bullets but should be written in a narrative format. Include only the details that are necessary to replicate the experiment and should explain why the procedure was done. This section should be written in the past tense and should not discuss any results . You need to include a picture that includes your name, the date and your experiment set up in action in the methods section.
The results section should explain the results of the experiment without interpretation or comment. It should be used to summarize general trends. If multiple experiments were conducted each should have a separate paragraph explaining the results. Graphs and tables should be used if appropriate but not as a substitute for a written explanation. Make sure that graphs and tables have a description that would allow the reader to understand the graphic even if they could not see the graphic.
Example of incorrect table/graphic description: Table 1. Bacteria counts and water level for Blackwater River
Example of correct table/graphic description: Table 1. Bacteria counts and water level for Blackwater River in the summer of 2015. Bacteria were sampled using 3 point cross sections along a 10 mile stretch of the Blackwater River. Samples show that as water level decrease so do bacteria counts. During higher flow levels bacteria levels increase. The results the area sampled is impaired for contact recreational use.
The discussion section is where you interpret the results. You should also discuss the results in context of the overall experiment as identified in the introduction of the report. You should tell the reader why the data looks like it does and why it is important to know. Lastly you should discuss potential modifications for the experiment. What kind of changes would you make to this experiment to further knowledge of transpiration? This is not to correct mistakes but usually every experiment ends with more questions than you start with. How would you address those questions in future research?
Rubric: The grading rubric for this assignment is attached. Make sure to review the rubric so that you have all the required components.
Submission Instructions:
1) Upload your lab report as a word document for grading.
2) Copy the self grading sheet and paste it into the text box as part of your submission. Do not attach it for submission.
The lab report will be checked for originality using Turnitin. Make sure you have proper citations and references for work that is not your own!
