For the assignment, you will be filling out the Macronutrient Chart (see attached) to assist you in synthesizing the content about carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids.
Charts and tables are tools we use in science to break down information analytically and present data in an organized manner. It is a beneficial strategy for learning about and organizing scientific material. Make sure that you are detailed, thorough, and specific in your responses. Explain yourself clearly. Do not list a word or brief phrase without explaining what it means. For example, if you list diabetes for carbohydrates, make sure you explain how carbs are associated with diabetes.

Personal Statement: The letter should be in the business format of your choice a

Personal Statement: The letter should be in the business format of your choice and, at a minimum, include the date, address, salutation, and closing signature. The letter must be 1-2 pages in length, word-processed, size 12 font, and double-spaced with one-inch margins. Following the business letter format, address the letter to the program director. Include the following information in the personal statement:
1. Describe your reasons for selecting dietetics as a profession.
2. Describe why you think you will be an effective dietitian.
3. Why is EMU your school of choice?
Personal information about myself:
School: Currently at Eastern Michigan University applying for a Dietetics program.
Experiences: I was interested in Health and diet and nutrition because of family cancer history. My uncle was diagnosed with colon cancer as well as my grandmother. My dad has cholesterol and blood pressure problems. My mom and I both suffer from digestive problems. I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis in High school which caused alot of symptoms such as vomiting, weight loss and alot of pain. I couldn’t eat many things and was put on a strict liquid and pureed diet. That made me realize the importance of nutrition and what we put in our body. Most of my life (starting from high school) revolved around doing alot of research and experimenting with food in order to try to get better and improve my gastroparesis. This sparked my interest and I developed alot of knowledge in nutrition. I think my experiences would help me connect with many people who struggle throughout the same things. My experiences would make me into a better dietitian because I developed a strong passion to helping people understand the importance of nurturing our body and taking care of our diet, and not following myths and diet trends that tend to do more damage than good. EMU university would be a good choice because in Michigan, there arent many universities that offer a dietetics program except for 2 in my area. I chose EMU because it is known to have a good program and I can be on campus rather than online.

Are you guilty of doing this to yourself or your love ones?

Please watch the video linked below

Are you guilty of doing this to yourself or your love ones?
GUIDELINES FOR POSTING: State your opinion, back it up with an article or video clip on the subject, Read and reply (in details) to at least two other posts.
Also please reply to two of my classmates below
Classmate 1:
Wow, this video was emotional. Especially when Jamie sat down with a mother in front of a pile of common unhealthy foods and told her she was killing her children. Of course, no parent wants to hear that. Life gets busy, and these foods are a quick way to feed our family and get on with the rest of our to-do list. I’m guilty of it, too, unfortunately. It’s sad how easily accessible unhealthy foods are. I agree there needs to be a change, and it’s going to start with education about healthier meal choices. The video was inspiring to want to do better; I liked how he pointed out that the changes needed are tangible for everyone, regardless of how busy you are.
My daughter started school this year in Kindergarten at an Idea Public School here in San Antonio. They’re a healthy campus and teach the children about sugar intake and healthy food choices versus unhealthy choices. Sometimes at home, she’ll ask me, “mom, how much sugar is in this” or say things like, “apples are good for you.” I just realized how important this was when watching this video. I’m happy she goes to a school that educates her about nutrition at a young age. As parents, what we expose our children to and feed them sets them up for their lifetime habits. Sometimes we forget how vital setting a good example can be for them. According to the CDC’s website, “educating children about nutrition gives them the knowledge and skills necessary to make healthy food and drink choices.” (CDC.gov) I also thought it was interesting that the CDC’s website says, “schools play a key role in framing lifelong healthy eating habits by offering nutritious meals.” (CDC.gov) I think it’s imperative to continue this type of education at home; if we don’t teach our children how and why to make healthy choices, they will choose the tastiest, easy options that lead to obesity and health complications.

Classmate 2:
I feel like it is crazy how high the statistics for obesity have gotten, because I feel like it is honestly more expensive to keep eating out every day instead of going to the grocery store and getting somewhat healthier options for the next week and a half or so. Growing up, we bought groceries, and even when my family didn’t know what to eat, they’d make something out of nothing from what we had in the house. We ate out occasionally, maybe if my mom or grandma were too tired to cook, but it wasn’t very often. My step dad’s side of the family has a bunch of health problems and they don’t often make it past their 40’s. So my mom tries to watch my sister’s diet, just because she has already kind of had scares with diabetes at such a young age.
In middle school, that’s when Michelle Obama changed the recipes for school lunches. I think it just made things worse because once we got into high school, we were able to go off campus and buy food from the fast food restaurants that were close by. Most of the students were off campus unless you didn’t have a car to leave or got free lunch provided from the school.
I definitely see that less and less people know how to actually cook a meal for themselves, so that is very disappointing. Especially when the video mentioned that people should know at least 10 meals they can cook that could save their lives. I wouldn’t say I’m a super great cook, but I can definitely do what I need to do to stay alive and to stay healthy. I don’t mind looking up options for a healthier alternative to my dinner.
I have linked a website that talks about how obesity goes hand in hand with increasing chronic illnesses such as diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease, etc,. If we don’t try to change something about it, a lot of people are going to continue to die way sooner than they would like. All it takes is one simple solution, fixing eating habits. Maybe even a strong and positive mindset.

Could you put together an educational program for them and choose 2 meal examples ( one breakfast and one lunch) for the mothers?

Hello, this is Jessie Hardcastle over at the Refugee Resettlement Organization. We are dealing with a large number of women with infants who have recently been resettled in our town. However, the doctors tell us that they have some malnutrition problems and need information about how to eat healthily. The doctor has given them vitamins but they need basic nutrition for new mothers and infants up to 2 years old. Could you put together an educational program for them and choose 2 meal examples ( one breakfast and one lunch) for the mothers?
