In the article, “Escape from The Western Diet,” by Michael Pollan, who has also written many nutritional books, blames our unhealthy eating on the food industry. He argues that we should avoid any processed foods because of what they have become (424). Also, he claims that the American views for preparing a meal has downgraded over the years (425). His solution is to not overeat, but to eat plants instead because they are not as manipulated
Marion Nestle divides this book into five parts. Part one, undermining dietary advice, talks about how confusing it is for Americans to understand nutrition and what to eat; it talks about how hardly any American knows the federal dietary guidelines. The major source of nutrition knowledge comes directly from the media and indirectly from the food industry itself. Part one describes how the nutritional guidelines are not based solely on scientific evidence, but on political compromise. Part two, working the system, discusses how food companies lobby Congress, use personal connections with legislators and agency officials who can promote regulations, and use nutrition experts to approve their products.

Personal statement of dietetics program I had not cared about what diet I had until I suffered from slower growth than usual population in secondary school. I also learn that the diets of people are getting worse and then it leads to chronic diseases, especially obesity has been significantly increasing since the fast-food culture became popular. These issues excite me to find ways combating the diseases and illness through nutrition, a natural way to remedy the diseases. Trying to participate in nutrition consultation to people, I find myself passionate to help and find it crucially important to become a dietician. Becoming a dietician could be very challenging as it involves nutrition and medical therapy.

Grandma is a healthy, well educated woman who has a diet, in which consists of gluten. Grandma’s friend assumes that if she completely removed gluten from her diet then she could possibly be healthier, including weight loss. Since she knows that her grandchild is extremely knowledgeable in biology, she grabs him for help to figure out whether eliminating gluten from her diet will make a difference or not. Prior to speaking about the gluten-free diet with grandma, the readers must understand exactly what “gluten” is and what type of foods contain gluten. Gluten contains gliadin and glutenin, which are both proteins (Saner, 2015).

The Use of New Technology in Dietary Assessment Dietary intake assessment is a very important instrument for assessing nutrition-related disease risks and evaluating the effectiveness of public health interventions. The most commonly used tools for dietary intake assessment are food records or diaries, 24-hour dietary recalls (24-HDRs), food frequency questionnaires (FFQs), weight records, and brief dietary assessment instruments (1). The conventional tools have their own limitations that affect data collection and weaken the research conclusions. Therefore, new technology tools have been recently developed for improving food intake measures that provide assessments with less effort for both researcher and participant and have faster application for use in epidemiological studies.

With obesity rates climbing to an all-time high, many people are faced with the question of food choice. Several debates surround the topic such as appropriate dieting and government intervention, but no clear solutions have been established. In the articles “Escape from the Western Diet” by Michael Pollan and “We Need to Eat Less Meat. Should the government step in?” by Laura Wellesley the issue of food choice and its consequences is examined.
In Mark Bittman’s talk, entitled What’s wrong with what we eat, he discusses all the food we waste and how to reduce our food waste. Due to all the meat we eat, “livestock is the second-highest contributor to atmosphere-altering gases and produces more greenhouse gases than transportation” (Bittman). Livestock also contributes to land degradation, air and water pollution, water shortages, and loss of biodiversity. However, Bittman is quick to point out that the problem isn’t the cattle, but how we use them. We are producing cattle simply to eat and much of the meat they produce is simply thrown away if it is not purchased by a certain date.
