Recommended Daily Allowance guidelines tell us what level of a nutrient is considered to be sufficient to meet the requirements of healthy individuals. Their prominent position on food packaging means that they are now widely understood by consumers, however like many people I was unaware how successful I was at not exceeding these on a daily or weekly basis. This chart represents three weeks of my nutrition intake and shows the frequency and extent with which I exceed the recommended amount for a range of nutritional values. The yellow circle shows my recommended intake level, the red circle represents an intake twice the recommended amount. From this I can see that my salt intake is excellent, however saturated fat and sugar intake are areas that I need greatly to improve. This has already made an impact on my diet as I have substituted some high sugar drinks with water.
