Own diet.

Posted on Updated on

Name one food or nutrient that should be reduced in the typical American diet and one food or nutrient that should be increased by most Americans in their diets. What are the health risks or concerns with consuming too much of the nutrient or food you selected for reducing? What are the health risks or concerns with consuming too little of the nutrient or food you selected for increasing?

Now think about your own diet.  Are you currently in need of reducing this food or nutrient in your diet? What about the food or nutrient that you suggested should be increased (do you think you need to increase this in your diet)?

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans make a nice complement to this section of the assignment (hint, this is probably the easiest place to find a correct answer). This assignment should be minimum of one page with in-text citation and references.
