The HBA project is an exploration of your personal health and nutrition status based on foods you consume, your daily physical activity, and your personal and current body measurements at a certain snapshot in time.
You will conduct this project in a Scientific Method framework. You will use the following tools to collect your BaselineMeasurement Data described in the project: Nutrition Analysis, Physical Activity Survey and Personal Anthropometry Assessment.
Nutrition Analysis (Dietary Intake) – Choose 3 Days you will use to record your dietary intake on the enclosed forms. This must include one weekend, and 2 weekdays. Study the measurement techniques first so that you are better able to accurately record intake. Consider using tools such as your smart phone, small notepad or other recording device that you can have with you at all times as our memories can often change the detail if we delay.
Physical Activity Survey – This section will be divided into 2 areas. 1) Record any formal activity you participate in. This might include dance class, soccer practice, your time working out in the gym or outside of the gym 2). This area consists of general activities of daily living or, activities you might not consider as “exercise” but is never the less important to your overall health. These could include walking from the “el” rather that riding the bus, vacuuming at home, taking the stairs rather than the elevator, shoveling snow from your sidewalk etc., Bet you didn’t think this could matter!
Personal Anthropometry – using the worksheet, record all measurements: height, weight, abdominal girth and hips at widest point. You will also calculate your BMI. Please be assured that this information will not be shared and that honesty is the best policy!
