Dietary Analysis

For Part 2 of the project, analyze your three-day food record using the D&W Food Tracker in the Cengage MindTap. Click the Diet and Wellness apple symbol within the MindTap toolbar.
Set up your personal profile. If you did Chapter 5 discussion Board, make sure that you are not using the information from previous assignments. You do not have to fill out the long activity questionnaire.

Under “Track Diet”, on the calendar, choose the date of the month you recorded your foods and drinks for day 1.
Input each food item one at a time within the search area Continue to indicate the amount consumed, and specify if that food Item was for breakfast, Lunch or dinner. Input beverage items as well (including water and alcohol). Include the exact amounts from day 1 of your 3-day diet record and the meal. Click “add” after each food item.
Once Day 1 entry is complete, select Day 2 date from the calendar. Repeat for days two and three of your diet tracking.
Go to reports. Select the “intake vs goals Reports”. You may want to print them to make it easier to read when answering the questions. You will also be saving and submitting these reports when turning in the completed project.

INSTRUCTIONS TO DOWNLOAD AND SAVE THE DIET AND WELLNESS REPORTS
Diet & Wellness Plus does not have any built-in function for creating a PDF file from a document, so you must install a third-party “PDF writer” (also called a “PDF printer”) to do this. Following are the steps to do this:

Go to http://www.cutepdf.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp

Click on the free download on the right side

Download and install it. Read and follow installation directions carefully.
In Diet & Wellness Plus, create the following reports

Intake spread sheet
Intake vs goals

Click the “Print” button in Diet & Wellness Plus. The Windows Print dialog will open.
Instead of selecting your printer, select the name of the PDF creation software you installed (Cutepdf); it will appear in the drop down list of printers.
Click OK.
You will either be prompted for a location to save the PDF file you’ve just created from your Diet & Wellness Plus Report, or the file will simply open, from which you can save it via File > Save As… > PDF…
