Protein means ‘of first importance’ in Greek, so it is important that you know your own protein needs and make sure that you are meeting them. You will be tracking your protein intake from the two-day food diary attached. This assignment will teach you how to estimate the amount of protein you are obtaining from your diet. PART 1 - THE FOOD DIARY Without changing the way that you normally eat, start by filling in the attached food dairy for two days - please make use of the reflection column, noting your thoughts about your particular food choices, especially incorporating the learnings from the individuality lecture and guest speakers. Also please take note of how certain foods make you feel: your energy, your digestion, your mood etc. If you have already filled out the food diary in any other courses (e.g. Genetic Individuality, Carbs or Fat), you can use that food diary for this assignment. PART 2 - TRACK YOUR PROTEIN Pick and list every food item from your two-day food diary that you consider to be a protein source. PART 3 - ESTIMATE THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF PROTEIN INTAKE Estimate the amount of protein in every food item using the attached 20g Protein Sources document, which shows common foods that will give you 20g of protein. Add them up to give you an estimate of your total daily amount of protein. INTERPRETATIONS By knowing your protein requirements, you can see whether or not you are meeting them. Now watch the homework interpretation video to bring this learning together for you.
