## 1. Calculate his BMI (show your work):

Answer :- BMI= WEIGHT ( Kg)/ HEIGHT ( meter)2
= 113.4kg / 1.75mx 1.75m
= 113.4 / 3.06
= 37 kg/m2

## 2. Calculate appropriate amount of calories he should meet (show your work):

Answer:- The Mifflin-St Jeor formula is being used to calculate Mark’s daily requirement
as it is found to be most accurate.
Men
10 x weight (kg) + 6.25 x height (cm) - 5 x age (y) + 5

## = 10x 113.4 + 6.25 x 175cm -5 x 58years +5

= 1134 +1093.75 - 290 + 5
= 1942.75 calories/ day

3. Short answer questions: Does the above diet meet the nutritional guidelines for a patient that
should be on a DASH diet? Discuss your answer using your textbook as a resource. (You may
also use the MyPlate tracker as a second resource.) Cite your references appropriately using
APA format

THE total calorie intake of MARK is about 2600 calories daily which is way above the recom-
mended and calculated 2000 calories. His diet includes Total sodium intake of 4000mg ,
contrary to recommended 2300mg, total saturated fat of 33 grams /day contrary to recom-
mended 24gram. The overall daily fruit intake and protein intake are higher than the rec-
ommended limits with lower intake of vegetables in diet per day.
The diet has to be moderated with increased intake of vegetables and decreased proteins and
moderation in fruit intake in form of juices and whole fruit. Also important would be

strictly cut down on daily sodium and saturated fat intake to aim to restrict sodium intake
to less than 2300mg and saturated fat intake to less than 33grams/day to meet the daily
calorie recommended intake of 1942 calories/day ( as calculated) and achieve a healthy
BMI of less than 25kg/m2.

The DASH eating plan requires no special foods and instead provides daily and weekly nutri-
tional goals. This plan recommends:
• Eating vegetables, fruits, and whole grains
• Including fat-free or low-fat dairy products, fish, poultry, beans, nuts, and vegetable oils
• Limiting foods that are high in saturated fat, such as fatty meats, full-fat dairy products,
and tropical oils such as coconut, palm kernel, and palm oils
• Limiting sugar-sweetened beverages and sweets.

4. Create a 3-day diet plan sample for Mark that meets his caloric intake requirements
and the nutritional guidelines for the DASH diet. The plan should include breakfast,
lunch, dinner, and snacks for each day and be formatted as a table. Remember to
include condiments and beverages.
