Visual representations are attached for reference in the appendix.ComparisonMy recorded protein intake was 180 grams.

htm). When plants serve as the only protein source a complementation system must be used that combines grains and legumes, legumes and nuts or grains and nuts in order to obtain every amino acid.Protein ServingsAccording to the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP) website food pyramid, two to three servings of the meats, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts group are recommended. I consumed 18 servings. This is six times the recommended amount.To keep nutrients in balance, I would need to change my source of protein to more fruits, vegetables, and grains.I achieved over 100% of my recommended daily protein. My health is important for me to keep my protein intake within the recommended range because of the health effects of ingesting too much or too little protein. The effects of too much protein can cause kidney failure.(Too Much, 2006) Too little protein intake can mean low energy, low stamina, poor resistance to infection, mental depression, slow healing of wounds, and prolonged recovery from illness.(What is Protein?, 2006)Fiber IntakeMy total fiber intake just under half of the recommendation as calculated by the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP) website. My fiber intake is too low. Figure two indicates that grains, fruits, and vegetables do not meet the recommended numbers or servings. Fiber helps flush bad fat intake from the human body. If I want to loose weight, I should double my fiber intake.My fruit intake was zero, vegetable servings were at six, and my grain consumption was five less than the recommendation.

(Wardlaw, 2006) Both ounces of ham during the mid-morning snack can be replaced by a grain source. An example of two servings of a grain source is a whole bagel. (Wardlaw, 2006)At lunch, I eat six and a half ounces of tuna; this is two servings. One serving could be eliminated and in the place of three and a quarter ounces of tuna, I should eat one small role. Since I repeat my fish intake at dinner the other three and a quarter ounces of tuna can be divided and replaced by a half cup of pasta and a quarter cup of dried fruit.At dinner, I reported five servings of salmon. Two servings of salmon should be replaced by a melon wedge equal to one quarter of a melon. This would bring my fruit intake to the maximum recommended servings. I reported one serving of grains. Two more servings of salmon can be replaced by two small biscuits. So far with the changes suggested I would add more servings of grains to my diet. Six servings...
