AnalyzeMyDiet is Macmillan Learning's new diet tracker and personalized, auto-graded diet analysis program.  Our powered by ESHA database of 80,000 USDA and brand-name foods makes it easy for students  to track their intake and physical activity. A comprehensive set of reports includes an all-in-one “Combination Report” with all data in one file for easy use. 

AnalyzeMyDiet is the only program that frees instructors from hand-grading diet analysis projects.  Our personalized, auto-graded online activities cover content traditionally found in a 3- to 7-day diet analysis assignment. Students get instant feedback and instructors save precious time!  Plus, we’ve made it easy for students to get started tracking their diets with an assignable tutorial.

AnalyzeMyDiet Activities–each activity consists of an auto-graded and open-ended aspect, giving you the flexibility to choose which activities to assign and when to assign them.  

Part 1 asks students to enter the data from their reports into a table, then answer questions about their intake based on the data.  The answer choices are personalized based on the data a student enters into the table and the results are auto-graded. 

Part 2 consists of open-ended questions that ask students to further analyze their intake and potential changes to their diet.  These “Reflection” questions can be edited to suit your course.

AnalyzeMyDiet activities cover:

·         Food Groups 

·         Carbohydrates 

·         Lipids 

·         Proteins
