Every 5 years the federal government issues new dietary guidelines. This year the recommendations emphasize consuming fewer calories and getting more activity. They urge people to eat nutrient dense foods and limit their intake of trans and saturated fat, refined grains and sugar. And they recommend reducing sodium to 1500-23oo mg or less per day depending on your age and genetic factors. Read Marion Nestle’s take on the new guidelines by clicking on this link.
