Harvard Healthy Eating Plate

HealthyPlate_FINALVERSIONIs your eating contributing to your wellness? With the changing awareness regarding  obesity in the US, more and more people are willing to accept that diets need to change in order to address the natural capacity of the body to manage  food intake.  But eating right not only reduces excess fat, but contributes to overall wellness. The Harvard School of Public Health has recently published a new version of the Food Plate called the Healthy Eating Plate.  This is different from the USDA My Plate in that it encourages plenty of vegetables, limits grains to whole grains and limits protein to healthy, non processed sources, limiting dairy intake and eating healthy fats.  See the difference between the Harvard Healthy Eating Plate and the Government Healthy Eating Plate here.
