U.S. Department of Agriculture

Exercise recommendations from the united states department of agriculture 2005

Exercise Recommendations from the United States Department of Agriculture, 2005

  • Exercise daily and do not consume too many calories.

    • Do at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most days of the week to prevent heart disease, stoke, and diabetes.

    • People trying to lose weight or maintain lost weight should exercise moderately for at least 60 minutes per day.

    • The exercise does not have to be continuous— people can exercise in 10 to 20 minute segments for a total of 60 minutes per day or more.

Usda nutritional recommendations 2005

USDA Nutritional Recommendations, 2005

  • Consume a variety of nutrient-dense foods and beverages from the basic food groups.

    • Limit intake of trans fats, added sugars, salt, and alcohol.

    • Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits (6 to 8 servings per day, particularly green vegetables)

    • Eat moderate amounts of healthy sources of protein (nuts, legumes, fish, poultry and eggs).

    • Limit dairy consumption—other than non-fat dairy products—to one to two servings a day.

    • Daily caloric intake: inactive women 1600 to 2000 kcal; active women 2200 to 2400 kcal; inactive men 2000-2400 kcal; active men 2400 to 3000 kcal

Dietary Recommendations for a Person Consuming 2000 Calories per Day

Daily calorie intake

Daily Calorie Intake

Caloric Intake for weight maintenance =

[Weight (lbs) x 10] + [weight (lbs) x 3 (if inactive), x 5 (if moderately active), or x 10 (if extremely active)]

Food groups

Food Groups

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables

  • Select from all five vegetable subgroups (dark green vegetables, orange vegetables, legumes, starchy vegetables, and other vegetables) several times per week

  • Choose 3 to 10 servings of grains per day, half of them whole-grain

  • Consume 2 to 3 cups per day of fat-free or low-fat milk or equivalent dairy foods



  • Quenching thirst, drinking fluids with meals, and consuming water in the foods you eat are usually enough to maintain hydration.

  • Healthy people who have access to fluids and who are not exposed to heat stress consume adequate water to meet their needs.

  • Drink extra water if you exercise vigorously or are exposed to heat.

  • Restrict saturated fats to less than 10 percent of caloric intake, restrict cholesterol intake to less than 300 milligrams per day and minimize trans fatty acid intake.

  • Fat should make up 20 to 35 percent of daily calories. Emphasize fats from foods containing polyunsaturated and monunsaturated fatty acids, such as fish, nuts, and vegetable oils.



  • Eat plenty of fiber-rich fruits, vegetables, and whole grains often.

  • Limit intake of foods containing added sugars or caloric sweeteners, particularly soft drinks.

Sodium and potassium

Sodium and Potassium

  • Consume less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium (approximately 1 tsp of salt) per day. Beware of food products containing significant amounts of added salt. People with high blood pressure should consume less than 1500 milligrams per day.

  • Eat potassium-rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables.

Losing weight

Losing Weight

  • Stress fat loss. Rapid weight loss from fad diets is often caused by the loss of muscle mass and body water.

  • Restrict weight loss to 1.5 to 2 pounds per week

  • Lose weight by eating less and exercising more.

  • Endurance exercise, such as running, walking, and cycling, is most effective for weight loss.

  • Weight training increases muscle mass, which increases metabolic rate.

  • Monitor your body composition.

  • Avoid weight loss supplements and drugs— particularly without the advice of a physician.

Gaining weight

Gaining Weight

  • Stress quality over quantity: increase muscle rather than fat.

  • Use weight training to increase the size of your major muscles.

  • Concentrate long-term gains: don’t expect to gain more than 4 to 6 pounds of fat-free weight per year.

  • Eat a balanced diet containing slightly more calories than normal.

  • Monitor your body composition.

  • Consult a physician if you don’t progress.

Eating disorders

Eating Disorders

  • Anorexia nervosa: obsessive preoccupation with food and fear of weight gain.

  • Bulimia: binge eating often followed by vomiting.

  • Anorexia athletica: disordered eating coupled with excessive exercise.

Signs of eating disorders

Signs of Eating Disorders

  • Extreme weight loss

  • Unrealistic body image

  • Extreme diets

  • Obsession with food

  • Drug use

  • Amenorrhea

  • Excessive exercise

  • Depression

  • Low blood pressure

  • Obsessive behavior

  • Cold hands and feet

  • Dry skin

Risk factors of eating disorders

Risk Factors of Eating Disorders

  • The belief that the only way to be happy and beautiful is to be thin

  • Family history of eating disorders

  • Lack of emotional support from the family

  • Overemphasis on achievement

  • Rigid, overprotective parents

Protein and weight training

Protein and Weight Training

  • Active people need 0.8 to 1.5 grams of protein per kilogram body weight.

  • Consuming excessive amounts of protein will not promote muscle growth.

  • Taking protein supplements before or after weight training may promote protein synthesis and muscle growth. Timing of protein intake may be more important than absolute intake.
