Matt has bad eating habits. His breakfast is usually from McDonald's. Lunch is fast food, and dinner is at a restaurant. Vegetables are not consumed routinely. The only fruit that he eats consistently is banana chips.
However, this is a high calorie snack. Beverage intake is whole milk, sodas, and sweet tea.
I recommended the following: (1)change from whole milk to reduced fat or skim milk, (2)change to diet sodas and, (3)unsweet tea, (4)keep food diary, (5)8 cups of water daily, (6)chew food slowly.
Matt has been placed on a 2000 calorie diet.
