Guidelines for a Healthier You!

The newly released 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans offer a practical roadmap to help you make changes in your eating plan to improve your health.

The Dietary Guidelines encourage Americans to eat more:

  • Whole grains: Increase whole grains by choosing whole grain breads and cereals, brown rice and whole wheat pasta. Make at least half your grain servings whole grains.
  • Vegetables: Eat a variety of vegetables, especially dark-green, red and orange vegetables plus beans and peas. Most adults need 2 ½ cups of vegetables per day.
  • Fruits: Add fruit to meals and snacks—fresh, frozen or canned—to get about 2 cups each day.
  • Low-fat or fat free milk, yogurt and cheese or fortified soy beverages: Include 3 cups per day for calcium, vitamin D, protein and potassium. Lactose-free milk is also an option.
  • Vegetable oils such as canola, corn, olive, peanut and soybean: These are high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Use in moderate amounts in place of solid fats.
  • Seafood – Include a variety of seafood more often in place of some meat and poultry.

Have you seen Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition (Monday nights on ABC at 10pm/9c)? I've loved every week of the show and seeing the epic transformation of the people. Not only do they reshape there physical appearance, but they also irrevocably alter their entire interaction and outlook on life. PLUS, there is no magical ranch, these obese individuals must conquer their weight loss in their own homes. Truly inspirational!
