WHAT TO EAT Dietary guidelines



Published: Sun, May 5, 2002 @ 12:00 a.m.


Here are five things the government thinks you should do to eat properly. How many do you follow?
Eat a variety of foods to get the energy, protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber you need for good health.
Choose a diet with plenty of grain products, vegetables and fruits which provide needed vitamins, minerals, fiber and complex carbohydrates and can help you lower your intake of fat.
Choose a diet low in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol to reduce your risk of heart attack and certain types of cancer and to help you maintain a healthy weight.
Choose a diet moderate in sugars. A diet with lots of sugars has too many calories and too few nutrients for most people and can contribute to tooth decay.
Choose a diet moderate in salt and sodium to help reduce your risk of high blood pressure.
