Similar to the U.S. government’s MyPlate, the Healthy Eating Plate is simple and easy to understand — and it addresses important deficiencies in the MyPlate icon. “Unfortunately, like the earlier U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) pyramids, MyPlate mixes science with the influence of powerful agricultural interests, which is not the recipe for healthy eating,” said Walter Willett, professor of epidemiology and nutrition and chair of the Department of Nutrition at HSPH. “The Healthy Eating Plate is based on the best available scientific evidence and provides consumers with the information they need to make choices that can profoundly affect our health and well-being.” “Unfortunately, like the earlier U.S. Fruits: Choose a rainbow of fruits every day.

10 ingredients to fancy up your meals Sure, you can follow a recipe and whip up something elaborate when you want to show off. But you don’t do that every day. We don't do that every day.

The 8 foods everyone over 40 should eat: Diet essentials for the 40-plus club By Ian Marber Published: 21:00 GMT, 27 October 2012 | Updated: 23:10 GMT, 27 October 2012 We can afford to be a little cavalier with our diets when we are young. But once we reach 40 – as Hollywood actor Jude Law will later this year – the way our bodies cope with everything we eat begins to change.

From our fourth decade onwards, the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes becomes a concern – lead an unhealthy lifestyle and your cholesterol levels and blood pressure will rise. Looking trim: Jude law, centre, is about to join Jerry Hall, left, and Gwen Stefani, right, in the 40-plus club Top grain: Oats help reduce cholesterol WHY? This is a must for the 50-plus group, as it is in this decade that heart-disease risk shoots up. WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY?
