Diet Pyramids by Mayo Clinic

Posted: November 29, 2011 in Diet and Nutrition

I get a lot of questions about diet, so I went to Mayo clinic to see what resources they had on a healthy diet. I do not personally believe in all the special diets that are out there as they tend to be “quick fixes”. Your diet should be a habit, not a trend. A diet should simply be satisfying the needs of the body with these major food groups, not starving yourself or cleansing your digestive system. The most important thing to remember is at the bottom of each one of the diet pyramids in this article: daily exercise! And it is also important to remember that diet and exercise always go hand in hand for a healthy lifestyle: you can’t have one without the other! So check out the article below as well as my sample diet plan!
