Signature Assignment Details Part I The Diet
Include the following in Part I:
• Criterion 1: Determine if the person’s diet is deficient or in excess of CHO, PRO, and fat and explain why. (Do the diet of 001 J.W.) uploaded in the documents of his diet, lifestyle and current illness/meds he is taken*****
• Criterion 2: Explain in detail how the person’s diet meets or does not meet the RDA for five or more micronutrients.
Part II Disease and Nutrition
Include the following in Part II:
• Criterion 1: Explain how the person’s diet would affect the patient’s disease symptoms and progression. Provide a minimum of three examples of how specific foods affect the disease pathophysiology. Provide examples of foods the person should avoid, and those he/she should consume.
• Criterion 2: Explain how food interacts with the medications this patient takes. What are the nutrient-related side effects of the medication? What are the nutrient restrictions and recommendations for the medications?

• Criterion 1: Calculate the following for the patient: BMI, BMR, CHO, PRO, and fat needs and any other relevant calculations that will help you develop a nutritional plan for your patient.
