The food pyramid has been around for quite a long time and it needed a change to be updated for the times that we live in. The American Government has eventually got rid of the old food pyramid and replaced it with the new food pyramid. The food pyramid is updated usually about once every five years, the last update was in 2005. There are more of these people in the Western world than there ever were. It seems that people are getting further and further away from true nutrition in favor of fast food and a lazy lifestyle. I am all in favor of convenience food but it should be in the fast food taken from the healthy category. There is no need for flavorsome food to have the nutritional value of a cardboard box combined with massive empty calories. The food pyramid is a healthy way to make sure that you are eating well. The new pyramid is giving you not only the types of foods that you should be eating but the correct amounts of foods that you should be eating as well. It is also telling you that you need to have plenty of exercise.
The new food pyramid is going to be a fantastic resource for anybody to has even a modicum of interest in looking after themselves. I think that the changes that have been made will not only give you the impetus to eat the right amounts of food, and get the right amounts of exercise. For instance it recommends that you get at least 30 minutes a day of moderate to vigorous exercise. It even goes into detail about what characterizes moderate exercise and watch characterizes the vigorous exercise. It is by far healthier food pyramid than the USDA food pyramid of old. You can also get the food pyramid as a children’s food pyramid, the Kindergarten food pyramid, the Irish food pyramid, the German food pyramid, actual fact the food pyramid can be made adaptable to any cultural diet.
It is extremely important that people follow the advice that is imparted by the food pyramid. You can get into contact with the US Department of Agriculture and they will send you a copy of the food pyramid which you can pin to your kitchen wall, stick on your fridge, put a new children’s bedroom wall, which will give you a visual guide to what you should be eating every day. Follow the food pyramid so that you are always having a healthy diet.
