What is the Food Pyramid?

What is the Food Pyramid? New Food Pyramid is a Plate If you go to the new site, here is what you will see: Plate = New Symbol for Healthy Eating Goodbye, pyramid. Hello, plate. The Food Guide Pyramid was the model for healthy eating in the United States. Maybe you had to memorize its rainbow stripes in school. But the USDA, the agency in charge of nutrition, has switched to a new symbol: a colorful plate —called MyPlate — with some of the same messages: * Eat a variety of foods. * Eat less of some foods and more of others.   They have some good recommendations Balancing Calories ● Enjoy your food, but eat less. ● Avoid oversized portions. Foods to Increase ● Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. ● Make at least half your grains whole grains. ● Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk. Foods to Reduce ● Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals ― and choose the foods with lower numbers. ● Drink water instead of sugary drinks.                   PDF   Here is my rendition of the healthy diet plan:   FIRST, I would increase the vegetables significantly!  It is rare that an average American gets anywhere near the required amount of vegetables.  If you start with vegetables then you are more than likely not to go overboard with the junk food. NEXT is protein.  Healthy protein is an essential element to any diet plan.  The better the environment of the animal, the better the value of the meat. THIRD is grains.  Not white bread but whole grain products.  This includes brown rice or quinoa.  Forget the white baked potato or bagette. LASTLY are the fruits.  Fruits are good for you but beware of the sugar! Relevant Searchwhat is the food triangle
