After completing the project Calorie Intake Final I have discovered the true amount of calories I
am putting into my body. Over this semester I have learn to find healthy foods to eat every day. I
have also learned that I am eating very unhealthy over the past few months. As listed in my
weekly meal table it displays that on some days I am eating over the recommended daily calorie
a person should be eating in a day. On other days it list that I am eating way under the
recommended daily calorie. This change has changed my weight gain from healthy muscle
weight to fatty weight.
In order to improve my food intake I have created a one day sample menu that I feel will
improve my nutrition value. First for breakfast I will eat a breakfast sandwich that has wheat
bread (80cal), Canadian bacon (55cal), avocado (72cal), and tomato (12cal), with cheddar cheese
(108cal). This healthy breakfast consist of 327 calories versus the 400 calories I was eating but
more importantly it will keep me full throughout the morning. For lunch I will eat a turkey
sandwich that has turkey (54cal) sandwich with whole wheat bread (69cal), lettuce and tomatoes
with a glass of water (0cal). I will eliminate the mayonnaise from my sandwich. For dinner I will
have roasted potato (163cal), rosemary (2cal) and bacon (43cal) pizza which contains 328
calories. The total for this sample menu is 778 calories. This meal contains whole grain and
vegetables and healthy nutrients.
My future goals after completing this project is to first limit the amount of fast food I eat to only
two days a week. I will start to keep more healthy foods in my fridge. This will help me so when
I want a snack I can grad something healthy and not choice junk food like cookies, chips, etc. I
have learn I should track my food intake so I will know how much calories I am putting into my

body. My second goal is to give up soda. I started to drink a lot of soda this summer. Normally I
stay away from soda and my drink choices were either Gatorade or water. My third goal is to
track my calories in order to track the amount of calories I am putting into my body.
What I take away from this activity is to keep track of how much I am eating and the amount of
calories I am eating. I also know that I am not getting all the calories my body needs to function
well. I will start choosing to eat healthier foods to help keep my body at the right weight and
provide me with the correct nutrients.
