Why is it important to closely monitor your diet?

An active discussion is the key to an interesting and engaging online course. Discussion in this course is designed to simulate a classroom discussion. As others join in the discussion, you should read what has already been posted and continue on with the discussion from there. We will go through the questions one at a time, moving on to the next question once we have fully explored the current question.

First, let’s start with questions based on your opinion:

1. Why is it important to closely monitor your diet?  Do you do so already?  If no, why not

For your initial post, you will:

· Track your diet for at least 48 hours. Make it a healthy. Write everything down that you put into your mouth, including beverages.

· If you drink coffee, for example, include that and indicate whether or not you add cream and sugar.

· Then, visit the https://www.choosemyplate.gov/start-simple-myplate

·

· web site from the United States Department of Agriculture and evaluate your diet.

· Then, write your post by answering the following question:

· Did your diet include the appropriate balance of the food groups: vegetables, fruits, grains, proteins, and dairy?

· If your diet was too heavy in one area or too light in another, what were the areas? (Don’t forget that just because the new food guide doesn’t include sweets on the plate, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t track those, so be sure to include them in your post)
