MyPlate illustrates the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthy diet using a familiar image - a place setting for a meal. Before you eat, think about what goes on your plate, in your cup, or in your bowl. Watch a video here from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to see more of what MyPlate is about.
Personalized MyPlate Food Plan
You can get a personalized food plan based on your age, sex, height, weight, and physical activity level. Click here - and then click "Start" under "Get Your MyPlate Plan". You'll put in your personal information and then receive a reocmmendation for two plans - 1) to maintain your current weight or 2) to get to a healthy weight (if you're not there yet).
These are just recommendations, and as always, you should consult your physician when starting any diet or exercise plan. For many more resources about MyPlate, visit the USDA's website, choosemyplate.gov here.
