2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines
The dietary guidelines are published every five years with a goal to make recommendations to promote good health for Americans. As a nutrition nerd this excites me because there has been a lot of controversy over fat recommendations and sodium recommendations. Why? Well that's the joy of science. Read more about the joys of full-fat milk in this Today's Dietitian article. Ongoing research keeps us current and helps us understand how certain nutrients are metabolized in the body. Everyone is different so these guidelines are...not for everyone. I highly encourage you to seek guidance from a registered dietitian nutritionist to receive an individualized meal plan.
