 See serving sizes for quantities. Note that more than one serving size is recommended for most foods.

  • Include all required information regarding the seven (7) items listed above.
  • Explain the effects of over- or under-consumption of each nutrient and physical activity.
  • How does your intake of the nutrients above compare to the RDA (recommended daily allowance)? Review the 1 week (not daily) summary.
  • How does your physical activity compare to the recommendations (see your textbook)?
  • Be sure to (MLA) cite all claims or factual information! Don’t guess with MLA format! How to cite using MLA format (Links to an external site.)
  • Minimum cover page + 2 pages essay + works cited page= 4 pages minimum
  • You can include any additional nutrient intake that you observe from the reports. 
  • Provide information (from a reliable source) about how your health can be affected if you continue your eating patterns long-term. I suggest you use American Heart Association, National Institute of Health (NIH), or other well – know sources. A Google search doesn’t always generate a reliable source. 
  • I suggest that you include your textbook as one of your two required references. Information has to be properly cited.
  • You can write in first person, but be careful not to write like you speak or text!

All information from your textbook or an outside (reliable) source must be MLA cited- don’t guess! Go to Cerritos College Library  for MLA formatting or (Links to an external site.) or (Links to an external site.) for your works cited and parenthetical citations. Include all of your references at the end of your summary.

Only 1 quote allowed- use your own words! Your paper will be checked for plagiarizing and you can view the similarity report.

See the rubric below for point distribution.
