Nutrition Activity

· You will document and analyze the nutrition of the food you eat for three days.

· You may use SuperTracker from, myfitnesspal, myfitness, Fitbit app, or any kind of app that you like to track your food and exercise. It can even be a combination of apps (for example, endomondo syncs with myfitnesspal to add your exercise automatically).

· The best way to do this is to enter what you ate or drank right after you do it. I don’t grade you on how good your diet is, but how well you can record and interpret data (yes, this is science! J ).

· If you use an app, you have to be able to show a summary of your food, food categories, and activity for each day. It may take you several screen shots. Ask for help if you don’t know how to take a screen shot on your phone or on your computer.

· After you record your data, you will write an analysis paper, which will be graded based on the following rubric:

Grading Rubric
