Overcrowded Prisons Brittany Hobson Eng/147 Feb 23, 2015 University of Phoenix Overcrowded Prisons Thousands of innocent people are accused of crimes that were not committed. Some of the accused were in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, our prisons are overcrowded. Innocent people shouldn’t be sent to prison. He are she could have been framed by the guilty person. People are given lengthy prison sentences. Least dangerous people should not get long prison sentences. “Eliminating the least dangerous offenders is helping to free up space in overcrowded prisons.”(America’s Prisons, 2006) Meanwhile, the violent criminals should remain locked up. (America’s Prisons, 2006) Also they should get the right amount of time for there crimes. In addition, non-violent prisoners are sent to prison for non-violent crimes. Some people break the laws just to have a place to stay. But 55 percent of those in the federal system are there for petty drug offenses. (America’s Prisons, 2006) I believe that non-violent drug offenders should get treatment instead of time in prison. Violent criminals that harm innocent people deserve time in prison. **Optional: If you have written a fourth body paragraph, place it here.

3 Days Diet Analyst

...Kimintang Sidibeh BI 213 Three Day Diet Analysis According to the food pyramid, my diet is horrible considering what I have consumed in these 3 days. It shows that I need to start eating more, and better quality foods. My sugar intake is too high and should be reconsidered. Possibly I could swap out processed sugars for natural sugars; such as in fruit. It is obvious from the records I have provided that I do not take in as much (if any) fruit that one should be consuming on a daily basis. Thus, not only am I depriving myself of vitamins, I am also depriving myself of the fiber needed in order for my digestive system and metabolism to work as necessary. I will have to incorporate more whole grains with fruit and vegetables to act as roughage, as going to the bathroom proves difficult for me- most likely this is why. I was astonished by how many carbohydrates I take in too. Eating a lot of carbs can add to the blockage/ movement in the bowels so I need to consider decreasing the TYPE of carbohydrates that I eat, cutting out white and processed breads and grains, replacing them for whole grains and wheat products. The only milk I intake is with my coffee and tea. Although I have four hot beverages a day with around 2 tablespoons of dairy, I am aware that this is no-where near the recommended 2 cups a day. On a good note however, I do not drink many sugary drinks at all- if any. Coffee, tea and water are my staple liquids therefore the sugar that I eat equals......

Food Intake

...Food Intake Food Intake Assignment Mitchell Whitehead SCI/241 May 16. 2015 Timothy Baghurst Food Intake Assignment For this assignment I recorded my complete daily food intake for three consecutive days. During this three day time period I would say that all of the food that I consumed was a great example of my daily diet. They are the foods that I do normally eat, and with that being said this three day food intake armed me with some important information about my diet. I have learned a great deal about my diet in these short three days. I learned a great deal about my normal, or usual, protein, carbohydrate, and lipid intake. I must say that I was genuinely surprised at the results of looking at my carbohydrate, protein, and lipid intake. I gained a majority of protein from three different food sources: New York strip steak which afforded me a whopping 90.3 grams of protein, Roasted turkey meat (no skin) –which gave me 24.9 grams of protein, and deviled eggs which I gained 17.9 grams of protein from. I must say that I was quite surprised by the protein intake from the deviled eggs. Looking over the summary for the three days I was highly surprised by my high volume of carbohydrate intake. It seems as though a great deal of food that I consume on a daily basis is packed full of carbohydrates. The top sources from which I consumed the most carbohydrates is as follows: New York strip steak (64.8 grams), Bagels (31.0 grams), and Chef Boyardee Spaghetti and meatballs...

Sci 220 Food Intake

...Food Intake – 3 Days SCI/220 May 21, 2014 Food Intake – 3 Days SCI/ 220 Week 2 assignment was to document the foods and beverages consumed over the course of three (3) days. I assumed this would be challenging because these past few weeks have been more hectic than usual due to work, and I would be traveling one of the 3 days because I was visiting my daughter in New Jersey. The period I chose was from Sunday May 18th thru Tuesday May 20th. On Sunday, we were actually running around quite a bit because that’s the day I had to drop my daughter off at her mother’s house and trek back to Maryland. Normally, days like this are just filled with unhealthy decisions. Food Intake Day 1 Sunday May 18th was the first day I reported my food intake. I read an article posted on the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Health, reporting “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast provides you with the energy and nutrients that lead to increased concentration in the classroom ("Why You Should Eat a Healthy Breakfast", 2014), sadly, I have an unhealthy habit of not eating breakfast, and this day is no different. My first meal was at 11:30 a.m., for lunch I ate a 12” cheese steak with French fries. Not my most healthy of decisions, but being out of town and having lunch with my family “on the go”; rarely is a healthy intake option chosen. I accompanied my meal with a diet Pepsi ©. For dinner, I was again “eating on the go” as I had begun to travel......

This paper will describe my nutritional endeavor for the past three days. I will provide different aspects of my nutritional needs and an in depth analysis on how proteins fats carbohydrates and fiber take part in my everyday diet and what are these functions. This is intended to broaden my views of a healthy lifestyle, and how to achieve it through a variety of food groups. During the 3 days food intake, I ate chicken, steak, beans, eggs and turkey which provided proteins. For carbohydrates I had: wheat bread, potatoes, lettuce, carrots, milk, apples, pasta, and white rice. Finally for lipids I had: vegetable oil, olive oil, regular butter and olives. My recorded protein, carbohydrates and lipids intakes are high compared to the recommendations of the Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) for my body measurements. The DRIs are recommendations for the amounts of energy, nutrients, and other food components that healthy people should consume in order to stay healthy, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and prevent deficiencies (Grosvenor & Smolin, 2012). Since my carbohydrates, lipids and proteins are high, I recommend eliminating the steak and any parts of the turkey and chicken which produces excess of fat. I would add more organically......

This paper addresses my personal food intake for the past three days. Next I will compare my food choices with my WileyPlus profile and determine whether I am maintaining healthy eating habits. There are foods that a person can eat in order to make sure that the daily required intake is being made. Sometimes it is really hard for a person like me to make sure I eat all the foods that I am supposed to so that I can consume all the nutrients that my body needs in a day. I know I will need to modify my eating habits along with exercising to complete a lifestyle change. Three Day Intake Foods recorded in my daily intake that provided protein were chicken and eggs.

The Importance of Nutrients for Optimal Health

...diets and the effects that can occur from poor dietary intakes. A three day dietary intake study of Patricia Martineau. | SCI/220 Instructor: Amber Carpe | A balance of nutrients is important to maintain optimal health and energy levels. Scientific studies have clarified that taking a nutritional approach, and controlling the intake of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins can decrease health risks associated with one’s dietary intake. A staggering increase in diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and other medical conditions has lead medical professionals to recognize that controlled diets can help restore ideal health and lower the risk of medical conditions associated with poor diet. In my own personal 3 day food intake study, I became aware of the importance of balancing proper proportions, eating frequent meals as opposed to binge eating, and the dietary modifications that are necessary for me obtain optimal health. This study has helped me to understand the importance of balancing nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. Proteins are foods that come from animals and plant sources and contain a good source of zinc, iron and calcium, but many of these foods can contain a high level of saturated fats and cholesterol. Foods rich in protein help regulate body functions including the immune system. Carbohydrates are a good source of fiber and micronutrients and are found in foods such as; vegetables, fruits, and foods containing whole grains. Carbohydrates are......

The foods that provide protein in my 3 day intake are eggs, chicken and turkey. There were some foods that provided carbs also. Those foods were sweet potato, fried chicken and rice. Lipids constitute a broad group of naturally occurring molecules that include, fats, waxes, sterols, and fat-soluble vitamins (such as vitamins A, D, E, and K. I didn’t know what lipids were at first, but most people think of lipids negatively because they associate them with fats. Although come lipids are classified as fats, lipids are not bad. The food that contained lipids on one of my intake days were eggs. Other foods that contain lipids are poultry foods, such as beef, fish and cheeses. Review how you recorded protein, carbs, and lipid intake compares with recommendations of the DRI. If your recorded protein-carbohydrate-fat intake was too high or too low, which foods might you add or remove to achieve your goal and keep other nutrients in balance? My protein on this 3 day intake is an average of 125g, and the recommendation on my DRI says that it should be at 69-242g. My carbs on this 3 day intake is an average of 90g, and my DRI says that it should be at 311-450g, so this means my carbs are lower than should. I would add more good carbs to my diet and more...

Do you agree with this recommended calorie need?

I found that I wasn’t even able to eat that many calories a majority of the days because I wasn’t eating the adequate amount of food everyday, so I definitely don’t think it’s too less. 2.

Sci 220 Food Intake – 3 Days

...Food Intake – 3 Days SCI/220 Food Intake – 3 Days     I kept a record of my dietary intake for three days using the WileyPLUS iProfile food intake journal. I definitely feel that the journal is a great tool since it breaks down the ingredients of my diet and shows me exactly what it is that I am putting into my body on any given day. In addition, since starting this journal I feel that it is important to be aware of what I am eating and I plan to continue to use this journal in the future. Not only does the journal allow me to record my daily diet but it also shows me the recommended daily values for each of the food groups, minerals, and vitamins based on my age, height, and body weight. Understanding what is being put into my body is essential for living a long, healthy life.      I tried to eat a wider variety of foods over the course of the three days so that I could have a balanced diet to write about. Out of the foods that I included in my diet, only a few foods contained protein, carbohydrates, and lipids. The protein in my diet was attributed to the chicken and the green vegetables that I consumed over the three days. The carbohydrates in my diet were mainly from the bread and the pizza that I consumed over the three days. The lipids that I consumed over the three days were from the fatty foods that I ate, such as fish, bacon, and pizza. Lipids come from the fats and oils that are in my diet (Carter). According to the Dietary Recommenced Intake, I had exactly......
