Welcome to Cengage Learning’s Diet and Wellness
Plus,”An Overview”. This is an installment of the Digital Course Support self-training
video series. Our Agenda for this video is to give you an
overview of the Diet & Wellness Plus App inside of MindTap..
The Diet & Wellness Plus app is an application that runs on the MindTap platform. As such,
you must log into MindTap in order to use Diet & Wellness Plus. From the MindTap home screen click on the
“Diet & Wellness Plus” icon, that golden plus symbol, in the application bar along
the right side of the screen. When you log into Diet & Wellness Plus for
the first time, you must create a profile. After you’ve created your profile, you will
see the Diet & Wellness Plus Home page. The Home page is also known as your Dashboard.
When you log into Diet & Wellness Plus for the first time, many areas of your dashboard
are blank. Once you start entering data into Diet & Wellness Plus, these areas will become
populated with charts, graphs, and other information. The top navigational bar is how you navigate
between sections of Diet & Wellness Plus. The Track Change tab helps you to explore
your own behaviors, identify potential areas for improvement, create a Plan for Change,
and then track your change. There are nine “Areas of Wellness” that are tracked.
You answer questions to work your way through each. The Track Diet tab is where you input the
food items you have consumed for the day. Select the date, and then type the name of
a food and click the Search button. Under Optional Search Features, you can use the
Category Filter and/or Specialty Foods Filter to fine-tune your search. The Track Activity tab is where you add activities.
Select the date, and in the search box type the name of the activity you want to record. The Reports tab lists all Reports that your
instructor has assigned to you. A Report that has been assigned to you is referred to as
an Assignment. Thanks for taking the time to review this
