Fighting Obesity - My Pyramid Dietary Guidelines
If you are fighting the battle of the bulge (overweight and obesity) unsuccessfully, here is good help at hand. You no longer have to depend on unsubstantiated claims and vested commercial weight loss sites for your fight against obesity.
United States Agricultural Department has released dietary guidelines for all Americans to choose a nutrition program based on age, physical activity etc. My Pyramid is an attempt at providing a nutrition and physical activity plan to suit different individual requirements that would help fight overweight and obesity challenge faced by U.S.
My Pyramid is also recognition of the fact that 'eat less' suggestions do not have an impact on the weight management. The food pyramid suggested by the agricultural departments is all about moderation and balancing the diets while taking personal responsibility for ones own health.
The dietary guidelines are available to the public at http://www.mypyramid.gov/index.html. It has detailed guidelines on benefits of physical activities, calories burned with different types of physical activities, tips for increasing physical activities and more interestingly an interactive My Pyramid Tracker for an in-depth assessment of your diet quality and physical activity status.
The tool calculates the food calories/energy balance through inputting your age, sex and physical activities. The tracker is available at http://www.mypyramidtracker.gov/
The My Pyramid Dietary Guidelines makes for a very interesting reading for all those who are interested in choosing a healthy lifestyle with a balance of nutrition and exercise. All you need do is to be sincere and implement a good personal plan of action based on the dietary guidelines.
