Nutrition Prescription
REE/ Kcals: 1409 kcal (Mifflin) x 1.2-1.3 = 1690 1832 kcal/d
Protein (g/kg): 0.8-1.0 g/kg/d = 59-74 g/d
Fluids (ml/kg): 35 ml/kg = 2576 mL/d
Other: Swank Diet: Saturated fat <15 g/d, unsaturated fat 20-50 g/d, no red meat for first year

Intervention 1: Nutrition Education Priority Modifications (E 1.2): Educated pt about following
the Swank diet to help manage MS sxs. Gave an overview of the different aspects of the diet and
compared to pts current dietary preferences. Asked pt to identify aspects of Swank diet that pt
felt comfortable focusing on, and decided to begin with increasing fruit and vegetable intake.
Discussed the benefits of consuming fruits and vegetables for bioactives and to support
antioxidant capacity and reduce inflammation to help manage MS sxs. Went over the Swank
recommendations for fruit and vegetable intake (goal: at least 2 servings each/day), discussed
what counts as one serving, and provided pt with fruit and vegetable serving size handout for
Intervention 2: Nutrition Counseling Problem Solving (C 2.4): Discussed with pt the
importance of reducing saturated fat in meals to help manage MS sxs. Briefly went over the fat
composition of different type of foods pt commonly consumes and brainstormed with pt which
aspects of current eating patterns could be modified to meet Swank guidelines of < 15 g/d of
saturated fat. Pt identified that eating out (both processed foods and in restaurants) contributed
greatly to saturated fat content, and agreed to start by focusing on saturated fat content of the
meat and dairy products. To fit with Swank guidelines, pt agreed to replace red meat with 4 oz of
fish or poultry, and to choose 2 cups of 1% or non-fat dairy products, including milk, cheese, and
ice cream per day. Created a list of lean meat options and low fat dairy milk, yogurt, cheese, and
ice cream products for pts reference.

servings each of fruits and vegetables 4 days each week.
