Design a one day healthy diet based on 1800 to 2100 kcalories per day. The meal plan must consist of 50 to 70 grams of protein, 60 to 70 grams of fat, 275 to 350 grams of carbohydrates, no more than 2300 mg of sodium, at least 4500 mg of potassium, and 30 grams of fiber. For each breakfast, lunch and dinner, you must clearly include the name of the food, the specific measurable quantity, the total amount of calories, fat, protein, carbohydrates, sodium, potassium and fiber. For each meal, you must show how the meals add up to the total kcal, protein, carbohydrates, fats, sodium, fiber and potassium. I recommend you use appendix H at the back of your textbook to help with the correct nutrition facts for your food. You may also use the online USDA food database with this link: https://fdc.nal.usda.gov/. Copy this address into your web browser. Once you get to the site, simply type the name of the food into the search box on that page. You will see a list in which you can pick your specific food from and then click and you will see the nutrient facts. Most other online nutrition facts are incomplete and some are just incorrect. If you use any other database, be aware that I will only consider the information from your textbook or the USDA food database as the source of accurate information. If what you submit does not match your book or the USDA database, it will be considered incorrect.
