Obesity has been one of the major problems in the United States. One of the ways that we can decrease this rising problem is to get people to monitor what they eat. This will allow them to see categories they are doing good in and categories that need improvement in their diet. This is something that I did for three days in one week and will now go ahead and analyze the most important factors to a diet and how to improve them. Based on the data above it looks like that I’m maintaining my calorie intake on the base of a 2200 calorie diet per day.

This behavior doesn’t mean that I hate vegetables, fruits or anything healthy. It does mean however, just tend to choose to eat crappy food over healthy food most of the time – mainly because its cheaper, quicker and usually tastes better. Therefore for 6 weeks of the Autumn Quarter I’ve attempted to modify what I eat and in turn eat less of the bad food and more of the good food.
