Recorded intake of protein, carbohydrates, and lipids
Which foods in your recorded daily intake provide protein? Which provide carbohydrates? Which provide lipids?
Review how your recorded protein, carbohydrate, and lipid intake  compares with the recommendations of the dietary reference intake. If  your recorded protein-carbohydrate-fat intake was too high or too low,  which foods might you add or remove to achieve your goal and keep other  nutrients in balance?
Is the protein in each food you ate complete or incomplete, combining to become complementary? Why is this important?
How much of your daily recommended protein, carbohydrates, and lipid  intake did you achieve? If your macronutrient intake is insufficient or  excessive, what might you do to bring it into the recommended range?  Provide specific recommendations.
Macronutrient intake ranges 

Is macronutrient intake within the recommended range important? What  are the effects of too much or too little of a macronutrient? What  happens if you consistently eat too little protein? What happens if you  eat too few carbohydrates? What happens if you eat too few lipids?

Fiber intake ranges 

Does your fiber total meet 100% of the recommendation for you as calculated at iProfile®?
Does your diet meet the minimum number of servings of foods from  each fiber-containing group? If not, which of the fiber-containing  groups–fruits and vegetables–fell short of the recommended intake?
Which specific foods provide the most fiber in your meals? Which  provide the least? Identify trends in your food choices that might  affect your fiber intakes.

Dietary modifications 

What changes might you make to increase the fiber in your diet?
How might insufficient or excessive amounts of proteins,  carbohydrates, fats, or fiber contribute to health or illness? Provide  examples.
What have you learned about your diet?

Cite three references other than the course text.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
