Ashli Loar, Dietary Analysis


1. The intervention: he needs to eat more whole grains, at least 3 to 5 servings

The rationale: Whole grains not only provide fiber in the diet— therefore helping to promote a

healthy digestion— they also provide a range of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and

phytonutrients (including polyphenolic compounds, and plant sterols). These have potential

roles to play in health, and also in disease prevention (Phillips, 2012).

2. The intervention: he needs to lower his sodium intake by 2231 mg

The rationale: Excess sodium intake is a major risk factor for hypertension, and subsequently,

heart disease and stroke, the first and fifth leading causes of U.S. deaths (Fang, Cogswell, Park,

Jackson, Odom, 2015).

3. The intervention: he needs to consume more fruit, at least 2-3 servings.

The rationale: Eating more fruits and vegetables adds nutrients to diets, reduces the risk for

heart disease, stroke, and some cancers, and helps manage body weight when consumed in

place of more energy-dense foods (Moore, Thompson, 2015).

4. The intervention: Cholesterol needs to be lowered, he is over his recommendation of 300 mg

The rationale: low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) (or‘bad’cholesterol), which transports cholesterol

from the liver to the rest of the body. If levels of the latter are too high, over time it can build up

in the artery walls, leading to narrowing, or completely blocking blood supply (Bond, 2014).

5. The intervention: he needs to exercise 3 times a week

The rationale: Regular physical activity improves health and reduces the risk of many chronic

diseases (Young et al., 2014).

6. The intervention: increase his vitamin C by 32 mg to reach his recommended amount of 90 mg

The rationale: Vitamin C is an essential micronutrient with an adult daily recommended intake

of 75 mg for women and 90 mg for men (Hart, Cota, makhdom, Harvey, 2015).
