AUTHORITATIVE ADVICE ON HEALTHY EATING
In the United States, there are two very authoritative structures in terms of healthy diet. One belongs to the government department, the United States Department of agriculture (USDA), and the other is an academic institution, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of public health. They all provide suggestions on healthy diet.
The national Department of agriculture (USDA) of the United States is an intelligent Department of the federal government. It mainly publishes and implements policies related to agriculture, forestry and food, mainly to meet the needs of farmers and farmers, promote the production and trade of agricultural and forestry products, ensure food safety, protect natural resources and agricultural communities, and solve the food and clothing problems of people in the United States and even the world.
Harvard School of public health is the academic ancestor of health and nutrition. Unlike the U.S. Department of agriculture, all his conclusions come from various studies. He will not consider his own interests and make suggestions from a scientific point of view.
Harvard School of public health nutrition experts can learn a lot of health knowledge from the new healthy diet plate. The healthy diet plate can become your blueprint for planning a healthy and balanced die.
It is worth noting that this healthy eating plate is not used to lose weight, but to keep healthy.
1. Fruits & Vegetables should occupy half of your food plate
The darker and more kinds of food in this part of the healthy meal plate, the better. Potatoes and French fries are not considered healthy vegetables because they are high in rapidly digestible starch (carbohydrates), just as white bread and candy have a serial effect on blood sugar and insulin. In the short term, this will lead to hunger and overeating in the long run. It can lead to weight gain, diabetes and other health problems.
