MyPlate – The new dietary guidelines

Runner’s World:

Late last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture unveiled MyPlate — a new graphic that represents the Dietary Guidelines, meant to replace the familiar (and somewhat confusing) Food Pyramid.

It’s an interesting approach, and about time it changed. Life is very different today than what it was just a few years ago, so naturally the dietary requirements are different as well. This seems more in line with our current lifestyles, although I haven’t gone through it thoroughly. Just thought I’d pass it on.
