He and his wife both drive cars and enjoy eating out. His current weight is 98kg and he is 1.78m tall. Michaels’ total energy and nutrients for a typical day are outlined in the table below.

She is 31 years old, 5 feet 4 inches tall and her current weight is 5 stones and 10 pounds. Her waist measures 25 inches and her hips measure 33 inches at the widest point. She wears size 6 clothes but these are loose fitting. During a recent visit to her GP blood tests were taken which revealed that Stephanie is suffering from Anaemia. Stephanie needs to know what dietary changes she needs to make in order to increase her chances of conceiving and what eating habits she should adopt should she become pregnant. Dietary Scenario 3 Imran is 12 years old and an avid gamer. He spends any time that he isn’t at school on his games console usually with curtains drawn so he can see the screen properly. His sister Ghazala complains to their mother that all he does is sit in his room, in the dark playing games and eating rubbish such as sweets and crisps. As a result, he is becoming overweight. Imran tripped whilst leaving the house for school one morning and was rushed to A&E. The doctor at the hospital looked very concerned and she sat with Imran’s mother and sister and gave them the news that Imran had fractured his left tibia and had been diagnosed with malnutrition. She gave Imran’s mother a diet sheet which was high in vitamin rich foods and she also prescribed a vitamin D supplement with a recommendation that Imran’s diet needs to change, and he needs to get more sunlight. The doctor went on to explain that Imran’s bone density was lower than you would expect for a boy of his age and his femurs were becoming bowed. She then informed Imran’s mother that this was the start of a disease that had all but been eradicated in Britain but was starting to increase again among people of Imran’s age due to them having poor diets and not getting enough sunlight.
