The Task:

 

Each of the individuals were interviewed in response to questions concerning respond to the their daily nutrition and exercise practices. Your task is to watch the video of the first interview and record a dietary and exercise log of daily habits. Once you record their log, you will evaluate their belief system concerning whether their statement was a fact or fallacy. However, you will need to have more than just your word. Each statement contains a link that will assist you in providing data to provide advice to the individual.
