Dietary Guidelines (For the Real World!)

Download to read offline

With the release of the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, a lot of attention is placed on nutrition and how we’re all supposed to be eating. It’s easy for eating right to feel complicated (especially in the form of a 400 page report!), but we’ve got good news: it isn’t. To show how it’s done, five FoodInsight writers (both RDs and non-RDs) took on eating by the dietary guidelines for the week. See how they did it, what they thought was the hardest and how you can steal their approaches!
