Dietary guidelines issued by the American government


It’s about eating a variety of vegetables, of fruits, grains, milk, yogurt and cheese, protein foods including seafood, lean meats and poultry, eggs, nuts and soy products. When it’s about restricted foods, some categories are enumerated: saturated fats and trans fats, added sugar and sodium which are generally limited to 10 percent daily and 2.3 milligrams of sodium. The recommendations, however, were immediately criticized for ambiguity in some parts. There is no longer an official recommended limit on dietary cholesterol and is a little discussion about consuming red meat. On the other part, there is no more warning about specific warning about how much of the sodium Americans eat comes from prepared and packaged foods. In other words, analysts concluded, people will end up with a good understanding of what they should be eating, but a much poorer understanding of what they shouldn’t.
