INTRODUCTION -3- NUTRIENT




PURPOSE AND FEATURES
--------------------
NUTRIENT is a program written in IBM BASICA version 2.00 (PCjr
requires Cartridge BASIC). It was written for the layman or health
professional who wants to analyze an individual's food intake (diet)
for nutrient adequacy. It is intended to accomplish this thru two
categories of data entry by the program operator (you). First,
personal data such as name, date of food intake, age, etc.; and
second, food intake data such as food number and quantity eaten.


ADEQUACY: regarding adequacy of nutrient intake, this is up to the
individual. NUTRIENT analyzes one's food intake based on the
accuracy of the personal data and food intake data entered. In
addition, the analysis is meant for only healthy individual's in the
U.S. population since it is based on the Recommended Dietary
Allowances (RDA) of the Committee on Dietary Allowances of the Food
and Nutrition Board, National Academy of Sciences. The RDA
according to this committee are considered "to be adequate to meet
the known nutritional needs of practically all healthy persons."
However, there are limitations. The RDA were intended for
population groups and not individual's. The RDA are estimates which
exceed the requirements of most individual's. In general, if one
were to take in less than the recommended amount of certain
nutrients, his diet would not necessarily be inadequate. However,
there is evidence that if one's nutrient intake consistently falls
below the RDA, the risk of nutrient deficiency increases. On the
other hand, exceeding the RDA by two to three times may be tolerated
with most nutrients. However, it is not recommended that an
individual consume excessive amounts of certain nutrients such as
vitamins A and D, and certain trace minerals.

Features:

- Economical: NUTRIENT is software written with the end user in
mind as well as the author. The program is offered at a
reasonable price, and the user has the opportunity to review,
and establish the value of the program for his need or interest
prior to purchase. In turn, the author has the assistance of the
user in the distribution of the program.

- Individualized Analysis of Food Intake: NUTRIENT will analyze the
diet of healthy individual's in all stages of the life cycle,
from infancy through old age (I sometimes feel I'm at both
extremes).

- Multiple Day Analysis: 3 days of 45 foods each day are permitted
to be entered.

- 700 Food Database: The main database is a database of food names
and their nutrient content. This is called FOODFILE. It can be
customized by entering your own food preferences by using the
routine called ADD A FOOD. FOODFILE is expandable to a size only
limited by the disk capacity and speed of your machine. That is,
large databases may require a hard disk ( but we're talking big )
and a RAM disk to improve search and sort speed. However, the
current disk space will allow you to increase FOODFILE to 1100
foods.


_____________________________________________________________________
INTRO (Purpose & Features) -4- NUTRIENT




PURPOSE AND FEATURES (cont'd)

- 27 Nutrients: There are 27 nutrient values for most foods,
including some not often evaluated by other programs, such as
cholesterol and alcohol. Of course alcohol is not considered a
nutrient or dietary substance essential for humans. However,
it is included with the nutrient listings for the sake of
continuity.

- Food Groups: NUTRIENT categorizes foods by food groups to enable
one to select foods that are close to the one actually eaten,
in its nutrient content and/or general characteristics.

- Daily Averages: Receive a display and/or printout of the average
daily nutrient intake for up to three days. This average is then
compared to the 1980 RDA (expressed as Percent of RDA).

- Printouts: Produced for an individual's Food Intake Analysis,
including a simple graph, and comments on low and high nutrient
intakes. You can print out individual food values; or all
foods in the database by food group; also printout the entire
Foodfile which will be a necessary reference for each person's
food intake data entry.

- Display: Besides printouts, you will be able to display a
simple graph of an individual's Food Intake Analysis; individual
food values; foods by food group; and the entire Foodfile.

- Documentation: What you are now reading, READNUT1.DOC +
READNUT2.DOC should be 51 pages.

- Bibliography: A list of references used in the writing of
NUTRIENT are provided for your referral. Handbook No. 8 and
its revisions is the suggested reference of choice if you
want to add foods to the current database.

- Source Code: The IBM Basic code is provided for those who might
find it useful as a teaching tool.

DISTRIBUTION DISK FILES
-----------------------
The following files should be on your distribution disk. If they
are not, contact whoever distributed NUTRIENT to you, or contact
Nutrition Quest c/o Robert Savryk at the address listed above in the
introduction.

FOODFILE
METRO DAT
ENERGY DAT
RDA DAT
CHILD DAT
NUTRIENT BAS
DSPLYNUT BAS
SORTNUT BAS

READNUT1 DOC
READNUT2 DOC

A brief description of each file can be found in APPENDIX A.


DISK SETUP
----------
Your Working Copy disk will need to be a double-sided/double-density
diskette, and formatted for 9 sectors, to include the operating
system DOS 2.0+ (using the /S parameter of the DOS FORMAT command).
Also include its equivalent version of BASICA.COM.

Only the first 8 files on the Distribution Disk need to be copied
to your Working Copy Disk. Of course you can also add a batch file
to load BASICA and NUTRIENT, but that's up to you.

See your version of the IBM DOS manual to carry out the formatting
of your Working Disk, and copying the Distribution Disk files to it.

Regarding data files, NUTRIENT creates Food Intake Analysis files
for individual's food intake. It also writes data to, and erases
data from FOODFILE; therefore, the disk containing these files
should not be write-protected.

STARTING NUTRIENT
-----------------
First, make a Working Disk according to the directions in DISK
SETUP. Second, put the disk in your default drive (usually drive
A). Third, once you see on your monitor the DOS A> prompt, type
BASICA NUTRIENT. That's it. Please enjoy.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

INTRODUCTION/DIRECTIONS
-----------------------

Initial Display Screens
-----------------------
The first screen you will encounter is a welcome screen. At the
bottom of this screen is a disk drive prompt:

Which Disk Drive for
Personal Data files (A, B, C or ...)?

The Personal Data files are created when you run the Food Intake
Analysis routine. They contain a description of the individual as
well as his food intake data. At the above prompt, ENTER a single
letter to indicate which Disk Drive you want the files to be written.
It is suggested that you use a disk drive other than the one
containing the distribution files (main program and data files). If
the main files are on drive A, then ENTER the letter B or C, etc..
This suggestion is made only if your default drive does not have the
capacity to hold several additional files from 7K to 23K each.

The next screen is a menu of two choices:

1 - Directions 2 - Main Menu

FOOD INTAKE ANALYSIS
---------------------------------------------------------------------

1 - FOOD INTAKE ANALYSIS

PERSONAL DATA
-------------

On selecting #1 from NUTRIENT'S MENU, you will see the first
screen of the FOOD INTAKE ANALYSIS routine. It looks like this:

FOOD INTAKE ANALYSIS
(Personal Data)

Please enter the following:

NAME (First Last):







F1 HELP F10 EXIT


You should now enter the personal data for the individual whose
diet you want analyzed. If you press the ENTER key, you will be
returned to NUTRIENT'S MENU. Otherwise, enter a first name or
initial, followed by a space, then the last name. NUTRIENT uses the
NAME to store food intake analysis data; therefore, if analyzing the
diets of persons with similar names, ie, family members, use FIRST
NAMES with unique FIRST INITIALS.

Instead of: JOHN DOE and JAMES DOE
Use : SENIOR DOE and JUNIOR DOE
Or : S. DOE and J. DOE

Press ENTER when finished with the NAME. NUTRIENT then displays:

DATE: (MM-DD-YY):

Enter a two digit month. For example, 01 or 09 or 12. Then enter
the day as 1 or 2 digits, then the two digit year. Separate each by
dashes "-", or slashes "/", or by using spaces " ". This date should
be the date of the individual's food intake. It will later be used
in combination with their name to locate their last data file. Press
ENTER when finished. NUTRIENT then displays:

ADULT, CHILD or INFANT (A, C or I):

NUTRIENT classifies the following population groups:

ADULT is 19 years of age or older
CHILD is 18 years of age down to 2 years inclusive
INFANT is less than 2 years



_____________________________________________________________________
FOOD ANALYSIS (Personal Data) -10- NUTRIENT




PERSONAL DATA (cont'd)

Therefore, if within the ADULT years, enter an A; if a child, then
enter the letter C; or I if an infant. Press ENTER when finished.
NUTRIENT then displays:

AGE (years): AGE (months):

Enter the age in years if an adult or child, and in months if an
infant. Press ENTER when finished. NUTRIENT then displays:

SEX (M or F):

Enter the individual's sex as M if male, or F if female. Press
ENTER when finished. If F is entered, NUTRIENT then displays:

PREGNANT, LACTATING, BOTH or NO (P, L, B or N):

Enter: P if pregnant
L if breast feeding
B if pregnant and breast feeding
N if neither pregnant nor breast feeding

Press ENTER when finished. If P is entered, NUTRIENT then displays:

No. of pregnant weeks:

Enter the number of week's the individual has been pregnant. If L
is entered, NUTRIENT displays:

No. of lactating months:

Enter the number of months's the individual has been breast feeding.
If B is entered, NUTRIENT will display both the pregnant weeks and
lactating months prompts, one at a time. If N is entered, or if the
sex was entered as M for male, NUTRIENT displays:

WEIGHT (lbs.):

Enter weight in pounds, either whole pounds or in decimal fractions
of pounds. For example, 101 or 100.7 or 101.3, and so on. If P for
pregnant was previously entered, then NUTRIENT displays:

Prepregnant weight:

Enter the individual's weight prior to pregnancy, in pounds. Press
ENTER. NUTRIENT next displays:

HEIGHT (inches/no shoes):

Enter the individual's height in inches without shoes, whether an
adult or child. If an infant, NUTRIENT will display:

LENGTH (inches/no shoes):

As for adults and children, enter the infant's length (measured
in the suppine position from the crown of the head to the soles of
the feet, knees unbent, with a reliable measuring board) in inches
without shoes. Press ENTER, and NUTRIENT will display the last
personal data entry:
_____________________________________________________________________
FOOD ANALYSIS (Personal Data) -11- NUTRIENT




PERSONAL DATA (cont'd)

FRAME: Small, Medium or Large (S, M or L):

This entry is usually an estimate, unless you have been measured by
a reliable source. It is a measure of body frame based on usually
one of two methods, that is, elbow breadth or wrist circumference.
Body frame is not a measure of abdominal girth, height or weight.
If you estimate an individual's body frame without a specific
measuring device, consider the bone structure of the elbow or wrist.

Enter the individual's body frame as either small, medium or large
using S, M or L respectively. Press ENTER.

NOTE: One final note on personal data entry. A complete personal
profile is necessary, i.e., NAME, AGE, SEX, HEIGHT, WEIGHT, etc. You
must enter all personal data or errors may occur.


HELP/EXIT
Before we continue, a brief comment on the prompts at the bottom of
the screen is in order.

F1 HELP F10 EXIT

These two prompts will be seen on the bottom line of many screens.
F1 represents function key F1. If displayed, you can press it at
any time and be taken to the HELP routines. F10 represents function
key F10. When displayed, you can press it at any time and be taken
to the previous menu, or to the main menu (NUTRIENT'S MENU).
Further explanation can be found in the respective sections HELP and
EXIT on page 42.


CORRECTIONS

With the ENTER key, you can correct data you have entered to the
program. First, before typing in data on your current line, press
ENTER. This will backup the cursor to the previous line; keep
pressing the ENTER key to keep backing up. Second, once at the data
you wish to correct, simply type over it. However, there is one
drawback. You must retype each succeeding data entry. If you
recognized your error just after ENTERing it, you only have to
backup once and retype data once.

FOOD ANALYSIS (Personal Data) -12- NUTRIENT




DAILY ESTIMATED ACTIVITY LEVEL
------------------------------

Now to continue, if the individual's data that has been entered
represents a nonpregnant adult, then NUTRIENT displays:

DAILY ESTIMATED
ACTIVITY LEVEL

1 - Sedentary
2 - Lightly active
3 - Moderately active
4 - Heavily active

Choose a number

This screen represents the daily estimated physical activity of the
individual. Physical activity is only one of three factors
contributing to man's energy requirements. The other two are basal
metabolism, and food metabolism. NUTRIENT uses your personal data
(age, sex, height and weight) in conjunction with your activity
level, to estimate your daily energy requirements, measured in
calories.

Your job is to select from the 4 choices. Examples of each activity
category may help:

1 - Sedentary: seated and standing activities, sewing,
ironing, truck/auto driving, laboratory work, typing, playing
musical instruments.
2 - Lightly active: walking on level ground at 2.5-3 mph, garage
work, carpentry, electrical trades, tailoring, restaurant work,
cannery workers, clothes washing, shopping with light loads,
golfing, sailing, table tennis, volleybal.
3 - Moderately active: walking at 3.5-4 mph, weeding and hoeing,
plastering, loading and stacking bales, scrubbing floors,
shopping with a heavy load, bicycling, skiing, tennis,
dancing.
4 - Heavily active: walking with a load uphill, chopping down
trees, pick and shovel work, climbing, basketball, swimming,
football, running (short to middle distances). Exceptionally
heavy activities include: bicycle racing, cross-country skiing,
marathon racing.

Keep in mind, no one usually spends 24 hours a day in one activity.
Therefore, when you select an activity level, consider what activity
level is participated in for the most hours each day, or estimate
what the average would be of energy expense for a typical day that
is comprised of various levels of activity. You be the judge, but
be realistic. For example, if the individual sleeps 8 hours, sits
at a desk 8 hours, sits watching TV, eating dinner, and with the
paper for another 4 hours, works on a garage project for 2 hours,
uses 1 hour daily in hygienic practices such as bathing and dressing,
and finishes their 24 hour day with a 1 hour jog, he is not engaged
in heavy activity but probably sedentary, since he spends most of
his time in sitting activities.




_____________________________________________________________________
(Daily Estimated Activity Level) -13- NUTRIENT




DAILY ESTIMATED ACTIVITY LEVEL (cont'd)

Make your selection and press ENTER. If your choice is not a number
from 1 to 4, NUTRIENT will take a sedentary stance and sit waiting
patiently. On ENTERing a correct choice, NUTRIENT then displays:

PLEASE WAIT

During this short wait, several arrays are being dimensioned to hold
food and nutrient data.



















































_____________________________________________________________________
(Daily Estimated Activity Level) -14- NUTRIENT




FOOD INTAKE DATA
----------------

Thereafter, NUTRIENT displays:

FOOD INTAKE SCREEN
(Number of days to analyze(1 to 3)?

NUTRIENT now waits for you to enter the number of days of food
intake you want analyzed. This must be a number from 1 to 3. If
you enter a different number, you will see:

Choose a number between 1 & 3, please
Number of (Food Intake) days to analyze?

Now press an appropriate number and then the ENTER key. NUTRIENT
will display:

FOOD INTAKE (DAY #)
FOOD QTY
NO. DESCRIPTION UNITS EATEN
---------------------------------------
? ?




F1 HELP F10 EXIT ENTER = END OF DAY

This is the food intake data screen; you will be seeing a lot of
this screen. Let's take a look at its parts. The first line
displays the number (#) of the day's food intake you are currently
ENTERing. The next three lines, or heading, display the food intake
data that will be entered below it, either by the computer or you.
The question marks represent data to be entered by you. And the
bottom line displays three prompts.

FOOD NO. refers to the number of the food found in the FOODFILE
database. This database can be printed out by going to
the main menu (NUTRIENT's MENU) and selecting the PRINT
routine, which is choice 6. Each food is represented by a
FOOD NO.. You will use that number to access foods through
all of NUTRIENT's major routines. Now, you will find the
cursor under FOOD NO.. I have used a ? above to indicate
that when you see the cursor, it is your turn to ENTER data.
Key in the food number and press the ENTER key. If the data
record, that represents the FOOD NO. entered, is empty,
NUTRIENT will display this message on the same line as the
FOOD NO.:

1234 Record no. 1234 is empty, try again

The message will be erased, then you can enter another FOOD
NO.. If this record holds food data, the computer will take
its turn and enter a:

DESCRIPTION This is the Food Description such as MILK/WHOLE. It
will also enter the UNITS (household measure) for that food
found in the FOODFILE database. Then it is your turn again.

_____________________________________________________________________
(Food Intake Data) -15- NUTRIENT




FOOD INTAKE DATA (cont'd)

QTY EATEN You will now enter the quantity eaten of the food
described. Enter only a number. The number should be a
multiple of the UNITS number. For example, if the UNITS
displayed are 1 CUP, and 1 cup of the food was eaten, then
enter the number 1. If 1.25 cups were eaten, then enter
number 1.25. Easy huh? Be careful, because the UNITS
displayed for a food may be large. For example, ALMONDS/
RAW has UNITS of 10 EACH. Therefore, if you ate 8 almonds,
then you would enter .8 for QTY EATEN; if 10 almonds, then
1 for QTY EATEN. If you enter the number 10 for QTY EATEN,
this represents 100 almonds eaten (10 x 10 EACH = 100). So
you need to enter multiples or fractions of the UNITS
number (8/10 EACH = .8). See APPENDIX B - TABLE OF
EQUIVALENTS for help in converting your QTY EATEN to
decimal fractions or multiples of the common UNITS.

To ERASE the entire line and start over, while the cursor
is under the QTY EATEN heading and no number has yet been
keyed, press the ENTER key. You can now enter a new FOOD
NO.. Erasing the entire line may be necessary if you keyed
in the wrong FOOD NO., or the DESCRIPTION displayed was not
what you expected. If numeric data has been entered, and
you don't want to use the food described, simply erase the
numbers keyed and press ENTER. The FOOD NO., DESCRIPTION,
and UNITS will be erased, and not calculated into the day's
totals.

NOTE: To help in keeping a Food Record, a sample FOOD INTAKE RECORD
& WORKSHEET is provided in APPENDIX C. This will be handy
to have at your meals to record your food intake, and then by
your keyboard while keying-in the Food Intake Screen data.

F1 HELP This is the HELP prompt; by pressing Function Key F1, at
anytime, you will be taken to the HELP routines. They are
intended to be brief but helpful in entering data to a
particular screen, or choosing from a menu.

F10 EXIT This is the EXIT prompt; by pressing Function Key F10, at
anytime, you will be taken to the particular routine's
prior menu, or to NUTRIENT's MENU.

ENTER = END OF DAY This is, you guessed it, the END OF DAY prompt.
If you have finished ENTERing FOOD NO.'s for a particular
day, while the cursor is under the FOOD NO. heading, press
the ENTER key. NUTRIENT will then display:

CALCULATING DAY #
NUTRIENT TOTALS

.....WAIT.....

which means, NUTRIENT is calculating the nutrient totals for
that day's (#) food intake. There is a WAIT while the totals
are calculated, and then written to the individual's data
file on disk.

(Food Intake Data) -16- NUTRIENT






FOOD INTAKE DATA (cont'd)

If there are additional days' food intake to be entered, the
program will then return you to the FOOD INTAKE (DAY # +1)
screen. You will continually be returned to the FOOD INTAKE
screen as long as there are more days' to be analyzed. Once
done calculating the last day's food intake, NUTRIENT will
again display:

2 - ADD A FOOD

On selecting #2 from NUTRIENT'S MENU, you may or may not see this
message:

FOODFILE IS FULL
Press F1 for HELP

This message is only seen if there is no more space in FOODFILE to
add new foods. Then, if you press function key F1, you will be
taken to the HELP routines. An explanation that the FOODFILE is
full will be displayed, with the two options of either deleting
foods from the database, or expanding the database.

ENTER FOOD DATA
---------------
However, if FOODFILE is not full, you will see the first screen of
the ADD A FOOD routine. It looks like this:

F1 HELP F10 EXIT Press TAB to goto next data item


You can now begin to add a new food (of your choice) to the database
FOODFILE. First, let's take a look at the major parts of this
screen. ADD A FOOD is of course the title of this screen; the next
line:
ENTER DATA WITHIN BRACKETS [ ]:

is an instruction to key-in your food's data within the brackets [].
The screen has been designed to try and prevent data entry at places
other than between the brackets. If you go around those safeguards,
your on your own.
_____________________________________________________________________
ADD A FOOD (Enter Food Data) -18- NUTRIENT




ENTER FOOD DATA (cont'd)

Food Description [ ]

The next line is the Food Description; the cursor will initially be
found here. Key in the new food's description (within the brackets).
You are given 20 spaces, and it is suggested that you use a
method of describing the food, or nomenclature similar to what has
already been used in the database FOODFILE. Take a look at your
FOODFILE printout.

Placed first, you will see the food's group or type or category.
For example: BREAD or BEEF or MILK or DRINK, etc. Of course it is
not always possible to place a food into a clearly identified or
distinctive group, as in BAMBOO SHOOTS which you might want
to place in the vegetable group. But if you preceded the name with:
VEGETABLE, then VEGETABLE/BAMBOO SHOOTS would take up more than 20
spaces, thereby limiting other descriptors. Next, you might want to
key in the food preparation method, i.e., /RAW, /COOKED, /BAKED, etc.
You will notice that a slash separates the major division's of the
description. This is not necessary; any separator can be used. It
does make it easier to read, and might be continued for continuity.

Perhaps the best method is to study FOODFILE's FOOD DESCRIPTION's
and try to follow its lead. Using the suggested references of food
data in the Bibliography (APPENDIX G) can be extremely helpful
also.

It is possible to key in a Food Description that is already in the
database. If that happens, this message is displayed:

[SAMPLE FOOD ] has already been added

After a short time, the message will be erased. Then reenter your
Food Description, but modified to be unique.

ABBREVIATIONS: Because the Food Description is limited to 20
characters, abbreviations are necessary. In APPENDIX D is a list
of the abbreviations used in the FOODFILE database.

Once you have keyed-in the Food Description, press the TAB key to
move the cursor to the next data item.

Food Group [ ] Amount (No.+Unit) [ ] Weight (g) [ ]

This next line requires three pieces of information: food group,
food units, and food weight. The units and weight will be found in
your reference books, or on the food's Nutrition Label.

Food Group [ ]

The group is up to you to determine. Of course the group in which
to place a food may be obvious, as with bananas or breads or meats
or milk. However, some foods defy grouping. For instance, what
food group do you place alcoholic beverages into? Since they may
not even be considered a food by some, we have added five groups to
the traditional Four Food Groups. These nine groups can be found in
APPENDIX E with a breakdown of each into subgroups.


_____________________________________________________________________
ADD A FOOD (Enter Food Data) -19- NUTRIENT




ENTER FOOD DATA (cont'd)

Enter a 2-letter Food Group code by following these guidelines:
The first letter is the first letter of the Food Group itself. For
instance, use D for the DAIRY/MILK group. The second letter is
determined by the subgroup. For instance, the DAIRY/MILK group has
a subgroup called NONFAT. Therefore, you would use N as the second
letter, if the food falls into the nonfat subgroup. MILK/NONFAT
would have the Food Group code of DN. Press TAB to continue.

Amount (No.+Unit) [ ]

The units are entered between the Amount brackets. Examples would
be: 1 GAL, 1 CUP, 10 EACH, 1 SM, 1 MED, 1 LG, 1 SL, 1 PC, 1 TBSP,
1/2 PC, etc.. This is the basic unit that the food's nutrient data
is recorded, either in FOODFILE, on food labels (1 svg = 1 oz), or
in reference books of food tables. The food tables in reference
books usually list the units under the heading: Approximate Measure
and Weight. Key in a maximum of 6 characters, and press TAB to go
to the next data item.

Weight [ ]

The weight should be recorded in GRAMS. As mentioned above, in the
previous paragraph, the gram weight is found in food tables under
the heading: Approximate Measure and Weight, and on food labels next
to Serving Size. If the weight is in ounces, you convert ounces to
grams by multiplying by 28.4, since 1 ounce = 28.4 grams. Key-in a
maximum of 3 digits for the gram weight, and press TAB.

NUTRIENT DATA

The next major category of data is the food's nutrient data. There
are 27 consecutive entries from water through alcohol. Each entry
requires from 3 to 5 digits; this includes the decimal point if
necessary. Press TAB to move from one nutrient to the next.
If your source of nutrient data (found on food labels or in food
tables) lists the nutrient value as 0 (zero), then key in 0. If
there is no value listed, or a dash (-), or the word trace (tr) is
listed, then leave blank. In this case, there may be a lack of
reliable data, although the nutrient is thought to be present in a
measurable amount; or, the nutrient's value is not measurable.
Whether nutrient data is keyed-in or not, you can continue to the
next item by pressing TAB.

Press TAB to goto next data item

The last line of the ADD A FOOD screen displays the TAB prompt,
which I'm sure your familiar with by now ... Oh, your not? Well,
the TAB key is the only way to move from one data item to the next.
You will remember, at the start of this screen, the cursor was first
located within the Food Description brackets. If you pressed the
ENTER key, you received a discourteous beep or bell. This is
because the ENTER key is reserved, while using the ADD A FOOD and
CHANGE A FOOD screens as a signal to NUTRIENT. This will be
explained shortly.




_____________________________________________________________________
ADD A FOOD (Enter Food Data) -20- NUTRIENT




ENTER FOOD DATA (cont'd)

If you have come to the last data item (Alcohol), and press TAB, the
following line is displayed near the bottom of the screen:

Press ENTER if ok (press TAB to change data)

The ENTER key, if pressed now, is the signal to NUTRIENT that your
data entries are OK, that is, they are correctly entered. If you
press ENTER, your newly ADDed food and its data will be saved in the
database FOODFILE.


MAKE CORRECTIONS
----------------

However, if you have found errors in your entries, then by pressing
the TAB key now, the cursor will be moved to the end of the Food
Description. To change data, use the BACKSPACE key. That is the
only key that will work. It is a safeguard to prevent other data,
or the screen's format from being changed, and from erroneous data
being entered to NUTRIENT. TAB will again move the cursor from item
to item. And once the cursor is past the last entry (Alcohol), the
ENTER key will signal NUTRIENT that the data is to be saved.

Once the data is saved, the following message is displayed:


ADD ANOTHER FOOD (Y or N)?


Your choices, of course are Y (YES) or N (NO). Pressing Y will
clear the screen and present a fresh ADD A FOOD screen, for your new
food entries. If N is pressed, you will be returned to the main
menu (NUTRIENT's MENU).


One other feature of the ADD A FOOD screen:

F1 HELP F10 EXIT

The last line of the ADD A FOOD screen displays the HELP and EXIT
prompts, which are accessed by pressing their respective Function
key.


SOURCE OF FOOD DATA

A comment about your sources of food data is in order. Part of the
accuracy of the Food Intake Analysis depends on the reliability of
the data entered to NUTRIENT's database FOODFILE. It is suggested
that this data be obtained from two sources:

1. FOOD LABELS of major food manufacturers and distributors.
These labels are found on many food packages, and use the
heading: NUTRITION INFORMATION PER SERVING:.

2. FOOD TABLES of reliable sources. Several of these food tables
can be found in the reference books listed in APPENDIX G.

Enter Food Number to Delete (0 to end)?



There are two choices here. If you key-in a 0, and press ENTER,
this screen will be erased and NUTRIENT's MENU will be displayed.
In other words, you have been exited from the DELETE A FOOD routine.
Your other choice is to ENTER a FOOD NO.. If this is done, the
following is displayed:

SAMPLE FOOD
Delete (Y or N)?

If SAMPLE FOOD is the food you want deleted, ENTER the letter Y.
The screen will now display:

SAMPLE FOOD

** Deleted **

NUTRIENT will now move the cursor back to the original line:

Enter Food Number to Delete (0 to end)?

Again, you can enter a food number to delete, or enter 0 to END the
DELETE A FOOD routine, and return to the main menu.

If SAMPLE FOOD is not the food you want deleted, ENTER the letter N.
The screen will now display:

SAMPLE FOOD
Delete (Y or N)? N
** NOT DELETED **

NUTRIENT will now move the cursor back to the original line:

Enter Food Number to Delete (0 to end)?

Again, you can enter a food number, or the number 0. If a number is
entered that is greater than the maximum number of records in the
database, this message is displayed:

Enter Food Number to Delete (0 to end)? 2001
Food Numbers are from 1 to ### - Try Again

The ### represents the maximum record number of the current database.
The message will be erased, and you can enter another Food No..

As with the other main menu routines, the FOOD NO. is the key to
receiving food and nutrient information from NUTRIENT. Simply ENTER
a valid Food No.. One of three things will happen.

First, if you entered the number of a record which had no data, this
message is displayed:

Enter Food Number to Change (0 to end)? 650
Food Record is empty - try again

Shortly, the message will be erased & you can enter another Food No.

Second, if you entered a number which is beyond the range of the
maximum number of records in the current database, this message is
displayed:

CHANGE FOOD DATA (cont'd)

This is the same screen as used in the ADD A FOOD routine. It will
require the same key entries, BACKSPACE, TAB, and the ENTER key.
To begin, the cursor will be at the end of the Food Description. To
change data, use the BACKSPACE key. To safeguard data, it was
explained in the ADD A FOOD routine (Enter Food Data section) that
this is the only key that will work. Pressing TAB will move the
cursor from item to item. This instruction is found on the last
line:
Press TAB to goto next data item

Once the cursor is moved past the last entry (Alcohol), pressing the
ENTER key will signal NUTRIENT that the data changed is to be saved.


MAKE CORRECTIONS TO CHANGES
---------------------------

However, if errors are discovered in your changes, the process of
making changes can be repeated (ad nauseum), until you get it right,
by pressing TAB to correct the data. These instructions for
pressing ENTER or TAB to save or correct data respectively, is found
in the following message that will appear at the bottom of the
screen:
Press ENTER if ok (press TAB to correct data)

To review, once the cursor is at the end of the line above, pressing
ENTER will save the data, and the following message is displayed:

The DN found under the GROUP heading represents the Food Group
DAIRY/MILK (D) and its subgroup NONFAT (N); therefore, the 2-letter
food group code is DN, for NONFAT DAIRY/MILK. These food group
codes are further described in the ADD A FOOD routine, and APPENDIX
E. The ### is the symbol we have used to represent where you will
find the FOOD NO. in the screen above. The listings for a
particular subgroup or subset of a group will vary in their length.

The phrase `something like this' is used because the personal data
displayed will change depending on what population group the person
falls into. For instance, for a child less than 19 years, height
percentile and weight percentile will be displayed instead of simply
height and weight. Other changes will be noticed for this group as
well as other population groups. In essence, the personal data
displayed will reflect the same categories of data that was entered
during the Food Intake Analysis routine. The parts of the above
screen will now be discussed.

First, the heading, DISPLAY FOOD INTAKE ANALYSIS, which tells you
that you are in the DISPLAY routine and the FOOD INTAKE ANALYSIS
option. The next three lines display the individual's Personal Data
that was first entered in the Food Intake Analysis routine. The
height entry is worth mentioning since it may be 1 inch greater than
the height entered in the initial Personal Data. The reason for
this is because height was requested to be entered without shoes.
However, NUTRIENT uses a reference for part of the adult population,
ages 25 to 59, that uses height in shoes with one inch heels to
determine weight range. Therefore, 72 in. represents height in one
inch heels, and 157-170 is its respective weight range.

The next major part is the graph of 17 nutrients. Immediately to
the right of the nutrient's name is a percent. This percent is the
average daily intake of that nutrient, calculated as a percentage of
_____________________________________________________________________

its Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA). To the right of the
percent is a bar graph illustrated by X's which proportionately
represents the percent value. The next major part is the line
immediately below the graph:

% RDA --- ^ -> ^100% ^300%

The intention here is to point to the percent RDA as a number, and
graphically. The first exponentiation symbol ^ points up to the
percent RDA value (###%); the next two, point up to the place on the
graph where 100 percent and 300 percent of the RDA would be.

This is the prompt line of the DISPLAY FOOD INTAKE ANALYSIS screen.
On pressing the SPACE BAR, the initial prompt is again displayed:
