A Balanced Food Pyramid

We’ve all seen the food pyramid, but how many of us actually attempt to stick to it? Perhaps we don’t stick to this iconic suggestion because we don’t truly understand what it is suggesting.  The food pyramid is not telling us what foods are good or bad, but is more of a suggestion of moderation. There are no bad foods, but there are foods that we should eat less of and foods we should eat more of. It’s all about moderation. The suggested daily calorie intake for a 30-year-old is around 2,500 calories. This means those 2,500 calories  should be divided among the food groups so that it fits into the pyramid’s suggestion.
