New Food Pyramid
surprised no one has mentioned this yet.
The USDA just released a new food pyramid this week. It has 12 different areas, depending on your weight, age, sex and activity level.
The areas are now broken into: grains, vegetables, fruits, milk, oils, meat & beans, and exercise.
Here's what the new one looks like:
They are also suggesting 90 minutes of exercise per day for an overly obese individual. Seems a little excessive. The minimum amount recommended for any individual is 30 minutes of exercise per day.
For me the recommendation is: 2800 calories, 10 ounces grains, 3.5 cups vegetables, 2.5 cups fruit, 3 cups milk, and 7 ounces of meat&beans per day.
