Dietary Guidelines for Total Health
The U.S. Federal Government’s “Dietary Guidelines encourage Americans to focus on eating a healthful diet — one that focuses on foods and beverages that help achieve and maintain a healthy weight, promote health, and prevent disease. A healthy diet can reduce the risk of major chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and some cancers.” [Read the Vegetarian Resource Group’s Comments to the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee below. Total Health Fx supports the most healthful Dietary Guidelines incorporated into a healthy lifestyle.]
“The Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010 are the current Federal policy. They provide evidence-based nutrition information and advice for people age 2 and older. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans serve as the basis for Federal food and nutrition education programs.
“The next edition of guidelines will be distributed in 2015. Find out more about how the recommendations for the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans are being developed.
“The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have jointly published the Dietary Guidelines every 5 years since 1980. HHS’s Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion and USDA’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion and Agricultural Research Service coordinate the development of the Dietary Guidelines.”
