Recently, in my nutrition class, a 4th trimester course, we kept track of our food intake for three days. We inserted everything we ate, down to the exact amounts, into a website called Fitday.com. The website calculated all of the important vitamins, minerals and macronutrient deficiencies that each of us had.
This assignment was great because now we each know exactly which nutrients we need to focus on in our own diets. It also gave us insight as to what many of our patients will be deficient in, as well. I really enjoyed this activity because it brought to the surface the importance of what we put in our bodies.
