Diet Analysis Report Instructions

1. Compare your nutrient intake to your goal.

2. Identify each nutrient that you had more than 20% excess or 20%

Deficiencies:

I could eat more potatoes, oatmeal and pasta.

4. For each nutrient that is in excess, list the 3 highes sources of that nutrient from the

spread sheet reports.
