Quality and quantity: I think I have a good quality of food, because I rarely eat junk food such as fries, pizza or poutine. Although, I tend to eat too much candy, ice-cream or desserts when there’s some available. I also only eat multigrain bread or cereals which are more complex carbs than white bread or sugary cereals. I think the quantity of food I eat is usually reasonable and appropriate, but it the quantity of each food group could be increased or reduced, as explained in number 2.

What did you learn about your eating habits while completing this assignment? While completing this assignment I learned that my eating habits need improvement as I am not meeting the daily recommended daily servings for the 5 food groups.

Furthermore, I learned that I usually begin eating healthy in the morning such as eating a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats, a few sticks of mozzarella cheese, and a cup of orange juice or low fat milk.

However, what I’ve learned through my experience in CSL 466, is that you can try as hard as you want but some addictions never quite go away. For me, my addictive behavior is eating junk food. 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.

1). The vitamin that I got the most of in my one week diet was Vitamin A which is a fat soluble vitamin that helps to promote vision. Night blindness occurs when you have a lack of vitamin A in your system and baldness could be an affect of too much vitamin A. I have not eaten enough vitamin A in my diet. A good way to change that is add carrots to my diet. Some of the foods that I ate that contained vitamin A in some way were chicken, baked beans, chili, hot dog, BBQ sauce, lunch meat, and pepperoni pizza.

If it’s breakfast we grab a burger, if it’s lunch we grab a burger and even when it’s dinner we will grab a burger and might throw in some fires and a huge soda to go with it. Hamburgers are one of the leading causes of obesity and disease catching food. In the Bio Analogics article it states that nearly two-thirds of residents of United States are overweight, and since 1991 the incidence of obesity has risen from 12 percent to more than 25 percent. This is due to the amount of junk food and burgers, we ate daily. To see if I am also one of these fast food consuming eaters, I composed a diary of what I eat daily and I discovered that within my weekly schedule, that’s between school and work- I eat hamburgers at least three times a week.
