March 10, 2011 Health Tip Of The Day

Follow The USDA Food Guide Pyramid Guidelines

The Food Guide Pyramid gives the guidance you need to recognize what and how much to eat of each of five major food groups daily. Following the Food Guide Pyramid will help you keep your fat intake at recommended levels and help you consume all the essential nutrients that make up a healthy diet. The pyramid conveys three messages: variety, balance, and moderation. Eating a variety of foods ensures that you meet your nutritional requirements and also provides a much wider variety of nutrients to your diet. To eat in moderation, choose the number of servings that meet your calorie needs and limit the total mount of fat, cholesterol, sodium, sugar, and alcoholic beverages you consume. Don't forget that the tip of the pyramid is fat and sugar-you should limit them, not avoid them.

To Your Health!
