Objective: to evaluate personal nutrient/diet and use informatics principles and technology to collect and analyze data.

Additionally, you will list the carbohydrate, fat (total fat, saturated fat, polyunsaturated fat, monounsaturated fat and trans fat) and proteins measured in grams. Also, you will need to include the total grams of fiber.
After recording all of the food and beverages you ate for the three days and after recording the nutrient value of your food analysis, you will be required to assess whether your current diet is adequate, too much, or deficient in meeting your total energy and macronutrient needs. You can use the link here to estimate your daily caloric need https://www.supertracker.usda.gov/default.aspx.
