A Comparative Analysis of Dietary Journals and Prospects

It can be justifiably be concluded that the generated iprofile journal does not provide for health requirements of the ages between 12 and 40 years neither does it suit ages above 40 years. The caloric concept further recommends a carbohydrate intake of 1500 calories for the ages 12-40 years and 800 for those under six years. The generated iprofile journal provides for cheerios cereals and vanilla soymilk as the prime carbohydrates totaling to about 600 calories for the day suits the less than six years age’s consumption. According to NHANES (2000), a 600 calories intake is recommended for all ages on fat DRI. The journal provides for 72 kilocalories which is not much deviating from the recommended values. The journal as well provides for about 6244 milligrams of vitamin per day as compared to 500 calories recommended by the health department. In addition, using the iprofile journal produced will contribute to an intake of 1067 milligrams of protein in comparison to the recommended 500 calories by the department.

Based on these figures, it is justifiable to conclude that the journal provides much higher diurnal caloric requirements. Most predominantly is the starch with 445 kilocalories per day. However, vitamins, proteins as well as alcohol are well represented in the diet as per the recommended values. Among the alphabetical objectives of the health people, the nutrition and weight objective states its prime goal to be promoting health and in turn reducing chronic illness threats through consumption health oriented diets in addition to maintaining the healthy body weight (Health People, 2010). The group advocates for consumption of an assortment of nutrient-dense meals with the whole grains, fruits and some vegetables given much weight. In this regard, the iprofile journal generated by the study provides for some of these recommendations since whole grains, fruits; low fat milk products have been given massive consideration. Saturated fats and added sugars have too been limited as the group proposes.

Conversely, the pyramid provides for high intake of fruits of over 100% followed by vegetables at 80%. It discourages the consumption of milk and oil but recommends substantial amounts of meat and beans for the meal. Behind this pyramid, the people health recommendations are justifiably the philosophy used in developing the pyramid. The people health group as mentioned above projects a population whose dietary requirements entail low fat milk, consumption of whole grains as well as vegetables.
