Food Intake: 3 Days
Record food intake and activities performed for three days. The iProfile�� will be utilized to analyze the 3-day Food Intake Record. The Activities data will be analyzed during Week 4.
Enter your food intake for three full days in iProfile�� by following the WileyPLUS�� iProfile�� instructions. Save this information.
Access the Intake Spreadsheet and view the average for the three days. Attach a screenshot of your report to your completed work.
Write a paper of at least 750 words that addresses the following points about your 3-day food intake:

Is the protein in each food you ate complete or incomplete, combining to become complementary? Why is this IMPORTANT?
How much of your daily recommended protein intake did you achieve? If your macronutrient intake is insufficient or excessive, what might you do to bring it into the recommended range? Provide specific recommendations.
