Nutrition: MyPyramid

Many people are baffled by nutrition guidelines and diets cropping up all over advocating all kinds of eating habits. To clear up the process a little, the U.S. government released new guidelines for food intake, taking into account exercise necessary to keep up a healthy lifestyle. MyPyramid.gov offers a specialized plan for individuals based on age, sex, weight, height and activity level. Rather than giving broad guidelines, the new pyramid the ideal quantity of each food group for an individual and what foods qualify. Interpretations and critics of the new system abound on the Web:
    Deborah.org
    The Heart and Lung Center gives its interpretation of the pyramid and gives a quick synopsis of each category.

    Medscape
    Shortly after the MyPyramid release, Medscape covered the evolution of the old pyramid to the new and feedback to the tool. Critics said that the emphasis on calorie consumption failed to steer people toward healthier diets, and the web based application fails to reach the underprivileged population.

    Dietary Guidelines
    The Department of Health & Human Services released companion guidelines to the pyramid with authoritative advice and even some recipes.
