American Heart Association: New Guidelines

American Heart Association: New Guidelines
The American Heart Association (AHA) has issued new diet guidelines.

The emphasis is on healthy diet and lifestyle patterns as opposed to lots of number-crunching.

Here are the important points from the new guidelines:

Balance calorie intake and physical activity to achieve or maintain a healthy body weight.
Consume a diet rich in vegetables and fruits.
Choose whole-grain, high-fiber foods.
Consume fish, especially oily fish, at least twice a week.
Limit your intake of saturated fat to <7%>

These reports are often controversial as there are many differing views on dairy and meat consumption.

I still believe that everything in moderation is the way to go!
