Beverage Consumption by 46-Year-Old Male
The recommended alcohol intake for an adult man in a day is two bottles of beer. Excessive consumption has several effects on one’s health. In particular, it inhibits nutrients breakdown into usable molecules since it diminishes the production of digestive enzymes by the pancreas. Additionally, it damages stomach and intestines cell linings, inhibiting the rate of nutrient absorption and preventing transportation ofvarious essential nutrients into the blood. With nutritional deficiencies introduced by excessive alcohol consumption, the intestinal walls may become less capable of absorbing nutrients (Jani et al., 2021). To enhance his dietary benefits, the man should forego taking alcohol. Otherwise, he should reduce alcohol intake to a maximum of two bottles daily. Additionally, he should opt for other healthy alternatives such as milk and water.
8-Year-Old Drinking 100 Percent Fruit Juice
Diet choices may affect an individual’s health. In this case, the 100 percent replacement of milk with juice implies that the 8-year-old girl consumes many calories. According to Maillot et al. (2019), high-calories juice consumption among American children is the primary cause of obesity. The recommended calories intake for an 8-year-old child is 1,600 calories. When combined with other meals, the girl is taking excessive calories. An ideal recommendation for the girl is to alternatively take the recommended amount of water. Additionally, taking milk is both nutritious and healthy to the girl.
30-Year-Old Male Worker
The recommended total water intake for an adult aged between 19 and 30 should be a minimum of3.7 liters, which is approximately 130 ounces, for men and 2.7 liters, which is about 95 ounces for women (Shaheen et al., 2018). Besides, water demands may increase based on environment and body activity. In this case, the male worker taking only 24 to 32 ounces daily implies that his water intake is far beyond the recommended range. As a result, he is risking dehydration. As a recommendation, he should take soupy foods. In addition, he should increase the amount of water intake to the recommended minimum of 3.7 liters.
Based on my personal log for the past seven days. My consumption has been on the recommended range.
