11. In which of the groups does Steven meet or exceed his daily recommendations? Which groups does he not meet?
He meets or exceeds his daily recommendations in grains, proteins, and total calories(empty calories). He doesn’t meet the daily recommendations in dairy, fruit, vegetables, and oils.

He has 1,361 empty calories & he exceed the total calories by 1,378 and the empty calories by 1,101. He would be considered extremely obese and would suffer numerous health problems.

14. What foods does Elijah need to add to his diet? Which foods should he remove?
