Education Assignment 2 (J Jordan)

Education Assignment 2 (J Jordan)

Athletic Director: Time to go on the road! This week our three team’s competitions are out-of-town. I’ll let each coach tell you their team’s itinerary. Each team will be spending the night in a hotel then compete the next day.

Coach Speedy: This week we head to Hillstown for a tough 5K up and down hills. It is not expected to rain so thankfully we will only have hills and no mud. This competition will still be tough mentally and physically. The women’s race starts at 11 am. The men’s race begins at 2:30 pm. We won’t hit the road home until after 4 pm.

Coach Power: Our meet is in Ironville. The competition will start in the morning at around 10 am. I’m not sure when it will end, sometime late afternoon, and then we will head home.

Coach Combo: We are taking on the Crusaders on their own turf. Playing them at home is always tough. They have a great fanbase, and the game will be grueling. Kickoff is at 2 pm. The weather is going to be sunny and the temperature in the eighties. Athletic Director: Okay, now you know where each team is headed for their competitions. Let’s bring home a win!

Since each team is staying in a hotel overnight, you need to plan meals at restaurants for your athletes. We don’t have a lot of time, so the foods need to be purchased at “fast” food restaurants. The coaches will bring snacks from home. Remember, our athletes need enough energy and nutrients to compete at a higher level and to sustain themselves while they compete. Your assignment is to organize three meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and two snacks. The meals must be from fast-food restaurants (Examples of fast-food restaurants can be found in the attached file), not restaurants where you sit down and order from a waitress or waiter. Use Cronometer diet analysis program to calculate the nutrient and food group composition of your one-day meal plan. This plan must provide the following:

· Provide all the nutrients,

· an appropriate amount of calories from carbohydrates (>55% of calories) and fat (<25% of calories)

· calorie level within 250 calories of the recommended calorie level

You do not have to use the same fast food restaurant for every meal. You will have to enter this data into the diet analysis program. You may have to add and delete several different foods before you finally meet the nutrient requirements for this meal plan. When you, generate your report.

Screenshot or print your analysis from Cronometer.

For this assignment, you will develop a meal plan for Coach Combo’s football team.

For the team you are helping, enter the following profile information into Cronometer. You do that under the “Settings”.

· Coach Speedy and her cross country team: Plan between 2500-3000 kcal/day for a female athlete, 20 yrs old, 5 feet 5 inches tall, 135 lbs, maintain current weight, the activity level is active

· Coach Power and his weight lifting team: Plan between 3500-4000 kcal/day for a male athlete, 21 yrs old, 6 feet tall, 180 lbs, maintain current weight, the activity level is active

· Coach Combo: Plan between 3500-4000 kcal/day for a male athlete, 19 yrs old, 6 feet tall, 200 lbs, maintain current weight, the activity level is active

Once you have planned your meals and snacks, prepare a Word report that contains the following information.

1. Name of meal or snack

2. Name of the restaurant or indicate “home” for a snack

3. List of food items selected for that meal or snack

4. List and explain three guidelines to follow for choosing meals while traveling, and

5. List and describe three keywords to look for when reading a menu.

Finally, submit your diet analysis report in pdf format and your report in Word format (response to five questions) in the assignment area.
