  As
a human on this earthly journey, we share together a number of common traits
and functions. We all have to eat, drink, take care of our bodies, and get some
rest and exercise. We have to do this and many others on a daily basis.
Choosing a healthy diet is what is right for you, depending on the situation.
For this exercise, I choose the Chick-Fil-A Deluxe sandwich as the entree, the
Waffle Potato Fries as a side dish and Coke as a beverage. According to the
data above, there is a high possibility that I’m not on a good healthy diet and
remember this is just one meal for the day where it shows that I’ve had 30
grams of Total Fat, 8.5 g of saturated Fat, 7 g of Fiber, 0.075 g of
Cholesterol and 1.5 Sodium for just one meal. Compared to my daily nutrients
needs, it looks like I do not meet the nutrients requirement for a good healthy
diet. As you can see, there is a low amount of Total Fat, Fiber, Cholesterol
and Sodium.Here’s
the requirement from each diet meal. According to Unit one chapter 9
PowerPoint, Proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and water are the
essential nutrients that we must get from food. Protein is the macronutrient
and form part of muscle. The US Department of Agriculture recommends that we
should get at least 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day,
with that being said, I’d need at least 0.3 grams on a single meal. Fats is an
important nutrient that the body needs in order to function.  According to my daily needs, I need 2605
calories, which translates to between 58 and 101 fat grams a day, so I’d
estimate 30 – 38 grams of Total Fats need on a single meal. Carbohydrates
supply energy for body cells, my daily needs recommend 293 – 423 grams which
translate to between 100 – 150 on a single meal. Fiber is a great nutrient for
the body, but there are two types of fiber: Soluble (viscous) fiber and
Insoluble fiber. My needs recommend 38 grams which is estimated to 10 – 12
grams per meal. Vitamins are essential nutrients and they perform hundreds of
roles in the body. vitamins help chemical reactions take place; turn food into
energy; produce red blood cells; maintain nervous, skeletal, and immune
systems. According to the PowerPoint there are Thirteen vitamins: 4
fat-soluble: A, D, E, and K. And 9 water-soluble: C, and the B-complex vitamins
thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, vitamin B-12, biotin, and
pantothenic acid. Minerals Help the body growth, and maintain body tissues and
they are important for building strong bones and teeth, blood, skin, hair,
nerve function and muscle. Drinking Water Helps maintain the Balance of Body
Fluids. The human body is 50–60% water. Drinking 3.7 total liters of water (13
cups) is very important for your healthy diet.Fast
Food can be a time and budget-friendly option, but regularly eating fast food
can seriously damage your health. Most meals is served with fries and soda
provide well over 1,000 calories per meal, which is more than half the average
person’s calorie needs.

            Here’s a nutrition fact of the Chick-Fil-A Grilled
Chicken Sandwich in which I’d say is one the healthiest fast food item. It’s ridiculously
healthy. It contains a lots of nutrients such as vitamins A, C, B and K. These
vitamins help to maintain healthy skin, hair, teeth and bones, and keep you
feeling energized.
