Part I: Three-Day Food Log (Due Week 4) – 10 pts

Complete a 3 Day Food Diary. Choose three days, including two weekdays and one weekend day as close together as possible, and write down everything that you eat and drink and the quantity in common household measurements. Try to eat as normal as possible these days. (You will not be graded on how healthy your diet is.) Be sure to include everything such as condiments, sauces, beverages, etc. Try to write what you’ve eaten or drank immediately after you have consumed it. It can be difficult to accurately recall what you have consumed and how much from days previous or at the end of the day.
