Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by your course text and a minimum of one additional scholarly source. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Guided Response: Respond to a minimum of two of your peers in at least 100 words each. Assume your peers do not meet the current recommendations for carbohydrate and fiber intake. Please offer different solutions to each peer on how he/she can add more fiber and carbohydrates to their daily diet.
