  8. Balanced Diet According to the USDA, in order to achieve a balanced diet, you must eat from each of the food groups in the food pyramid (http://www.choosemyplate.gov/foodgroups/index.html)

  9. Balanced Diet continued…The Food Pyramid Grains Group – make at least half of your grain intake whole grains Vegetable Group- vary your veggies Fruit Group- focus on fruits Dairy Group- get your calcium rich foods Protein Foods Group- go lean with protein Fats, Oils, and Sweets Group- use sparingly (http://www.lifeclinic.com/focus/nutrition/food-pyramid.asp) (http://www.choosemyplate.gov/foodgroups/dairy.html)

  10. National USDA.GOV says the following counts as one serving:

  11. 1 serving is equal to the size of your fist Watch calorie intake Balance calories - enjoy your food but eat less - avoid oversized portions Adults should be vigorously active at least 1 hour and 15 minutes a week (http://www.choosemyplate.gov/foodgroups/physicalactivity.html) (http://www.lifeclinic.com/focus/nutrition/food-pyramid.asp)

  13. Diseases Related to Poor Nutrition Unhealthy Eating Obesity CancerHeart Disease Diabetes Hypertension (http://www.healthyodds.com/cancerprevention.html) (http://www.eguruguide.com/ )

  14. Diseases continued … Together these diseases account for two-thirds of all deaths in the United States The major health problems are mainly caused by excessive calorie intake and not enough physical activity (http://www.eguruguide.com/)

  15. Conclusion I hope I have made you a little more conscious about having good nutrition that comes from a healthy or balanced diet, and that I have made you a little more aware of the diseases related to poor nutrition.
