Mifflin-St. Jeor Equation:
       645 + 1057.5 – 335 – 161 = 1206.5 calories/day

Kcalorie Intake
Mifflin-St. Jeor: 1206.5 kcal/day
My Pyramid: 2000 (female, age 60+, active)
NHANES: 2200

Day 1          2205
Day 2          1775
Day 3          1856
Average        1745.3
According to Mifflin-St. Jeor, Angie’s calorie intake was above the calculated value all
three days. In this case you don’t restrict her calorie consumption greatly due to the fact
that over 3 of her vitamin and mineral levels were low all three days. Recommend her to
try and consume more fruits and vegetables in place of other snacks. By reducing snacks
such as crackers, or having a piece of fruit instead of a roll with her salads can not only
help reduce the number of calories she is consuming, but also increase her vitamin and
mineral intake.

      Vitamin D:
       For Angie to meet the recommended amount of vitamin D, the best way would be
       to consume more milk. Each day consume 1-2 cups of skim milk along with the
       milk she already is consuming. In doing this, she will receive over 25-50% of the
       needed vitamin and also fulfill other vitamin and mineral requirements, such as
       calcium. The best time would be at her main meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
       or with an afternoon snack.
                                                                                Page |4

      Vitamin E:
       Almonds are a great way to fulfill your vitamin E requirements. In 1 oz. of
       almonds you can consume 35% of your recommended vitamin E and also increase
       your iron intake. As a snack, have a handful of almonds and a glass of milk
       instead of a granola bar or crackers. Also, for breakfast have 1 cup of Total Raisin
       Bran cereal and you will fulfill your vitamin E requirement, along with many
       other vitamins and minerals.

      Vitamin K:
       Vitamin K was mildly deficient 2 out of the 3 days. To ensure that you are
       consuming the recommended amount try and consume more vegetables such as
       cauliflower, spinach and other green leafy vegetables. Make a side salad with
       fresh spinach topped with cauliflower for dinner.

      Calcium:
       By meeting your vitamin D requirements you can also strive to meet your calcium
       needs. In one cup of skim milk you can consume 300mg of calcium. So by
       consuming 1-2 more cups of milk per day you can meet your calcium needs.

      Choline:
       A great food source to find choline is eggs. By consuming one egg you can
       receive 125mg. of choline. At breakfast top your bagel with an egg instead of
       cream cheese. Even place a piece of cheese on top to add calcium and a little

Recommended: 20-35%

Day 1          49.95g
Day 2          59.49g
Day 3          45.12g
Average        51.52g
Angie’s average totaled to 51.52g. For a elder female, at age 67, this is an excessive
amount. To decrease her intake you need to watch the type of protein source you are
consuming. Meat that is not considered lean can be higher in fat and also deserts can add
up in fat grams. Try to consume low-fat and no-fat products when possible due to the fact
that excess fat can lead to health complications such as high cholesterol and cardiac
                                                                              Page |5

Recommended: <2300mg

Day 1           3607mg
Day 2           2265mg
Day 3           2426mg
Average         2766mg
With an average sodium intake of 2766mg. you are on a good pace but need to start being
cautious about the sodium levels in the foods you are consuming. Soups and “pre-made”
or “boxed meals” tend to be increasingly higher in sodium. In consuming excess sodium
it can lead to osteoporosis due to the fact that sodium can excrete calcium in the bones.

Recommended: 4700mg

Day 1         3485mg
Day 2         2990mg
Day 3         3600mg
Average       3358.3
To increase your potassium levels consume a banana as a snack or with one of your
meals. A Medium-large banana contains between 425-450mg. Also, guacamole (contains
avocado) is a great source of potassium. As a fun snack have guacamole instead of salsa
with your chips.
