USDA advises Americans to eat less
The USDA (US Department of Agriculture) comes out with dietary guidelines every 5 years. The latest report, published yesterday tells Americans something that it should have told them many reports ago…EAT LESS. Yes, the report has indicated that Americans consume too many calories and have to cut down. The last report said that “more vegetables and fruits” should be eaten, so people started putting a slice of tomato and some lettuce on their hamburgers. This report says half the plate should be filled with fruits and vegetables — a much clearer recommendation.Indians please take the same advice and eat more fruits and vegetables and just eat less…reduce quantities, particularly junk food quantities, to stay fit and healthy.The complete report can be found here.
