The Center is a wonderful way to obtain a portion of the vitamins needed every day. When reviewing my recorded intake and analyzing the results, I realized that changes still needed to be made.
While vitamins and minerals such as Thiamin, Riboflavin, and Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Zinc were met, other daily vitamin and nutrient recommendations were not met.

Whose diet provides the best opportunity for health and well-being? Which profile provides the best philosophy of health? Provide a rationale for your answers. My diet compared to Kelly Watson’s provides the best opportunity for health and well-being. In addition, the profile that I have established is the best philosophy of health. Kelly’s consumed a lot of sugar, fats and empty calories. Also, some of the foods that were consumed did not provide the best nutritional value and could have either been exchange for a healthier choice or eliminated.
In addition, some of the portions could have been reduced as well. The convenience of prepared food that is readily available to us in today’s society has changed the dynamics of the way many people consume food. It is much easier to grab a burger, order of French fries, or pizza than prepare a salad at home for lunch the next day. This in a sense has given many people the idea of leaving the responsibility of healthy food preparation to the different restaurants that are available to us each day.
