Abstract:Introduction: Obesity has become an issue that is getting increasingly common. As of 2015, more than one-third (36.5%) of U.S. adults have obesity. It is also challenging to lose weight without the knowledge of nutritional values of consumed foods. We’ve used Food Frequency Questionnaire to assess the obtained nutrients by the weight loss trial participants and to give them effective feedback. Objective: To evaluate the food patterns of the participants and summarize it to be used by them. Materials and Methods: 1. Food Frequency Questionnaire was used to obtain daily nutritional values of participants. 2. The protein and fiber content of food items on the questionnaire were calculated and plotted with formulas: [Protein(g)/Total Calorie(Cal)] *100; [Fiber(g)/Total Calorie(Cal)] *100. 3. To compare the quality of food items on the questionnaire, we’ve divided the plot area into 3 groups; Green group (foods that have optimal amount of protein or fiber per 100kcal for effective weight loss), Yellow group (foods that have moderate amount of protein and fiber) and Red group (foods that don’t have enough protein nor fiber.) 4. The percentage of food items in the Questionnaire was calculated for comparison using Microsoft Excel Conclusion: • Average daily protein consumption per 100kcal was 4.8 grams and average daily fiber consumption per 100kcal was 1.2 grams, based on the questionnaires we’ve received from 15 participants. • Fiber consumption was the limiting nutrition in creating a diet for weight loss and even weight maintenance. • Questionnaire should be regularly updated and checked for accuracy.
