American Food Pyramid Notes, Tips for Dieters
We strongly support use of the official Food Pyramid for creating the healthiest plan for losing pounds. However, it too has its own set of faults.
Let's take a moment to go through the different areas of the pyramid which can better assist you while you are dieting. The more that you know about losing weight, the more apt you are to experience a successful journey.
About Calories & Body Weight
Caloric Differences: This is one area of the Food Pyramid that remains flawed - and there really isn't much that can be done about the situation. For example, the pyramid recommends x-amount of servings from each of its five food groups.
But, an apple, a pear, a peach, plum, banana, kiwi, mango, cherry - as well as all the other fruits within the Fruit Group are different in caloric values, as well as other nutritional values. In addition, they vary in size. While a small banana might equal a serving of fruit, an entire watermelon or pineapple would make the dieter's cup runneth over - as well as their bathroom scales.
In addition, due to having varying nutritional values they all bring something different to the plate. Therefore, the solution is to enjoy a variety of fruits in your daily diet. The same applies to vegetables - as well as all the other vital food groups.
Moderation of Energy Intake to Regulate Body Weight & Fight Belly Fat
Everything in Moderation: This is another standard of the pyramid. From the foods we eat to the activity that we insert into our daily lives and onto our daily plates - it's all about moderation.
Reasonable & Doable Weight Loss Plan
Personalization & Reasonability: When developing a weight loss plan that will produce permanent results, you need to be able to personalize the plan. And the plan needs to be reasonable. While the weight was gained over a period of weeks or months, it cannot possibly evaporate overnight. We must be reasonable when dieting.
Let's move forward to the diet articles within this section. Take whatever you learn along with you on your journey; you'll do well with this tips and we wish you the greatest success as you move forward.
