How to Lose Weight In One Month-Lose Weight Using the New 2010 Food Pyramid

-->The United States Department of Agriculture has released the latest version of the food pyramid and there are some great changes to help people who are overweight shed those pounds. If you have used diets and still found that you can't lose weight; it might be time to try the new interactive food pyramid that will guide you in daily food choices, help with meal planning, and give you in depth information on a wide variety of foods. The emphasis is on better diet and exercise for physical wellness. Here you can find a personalized free weight loss plan. 

 Start by going to and get familiar with all that is offered on this site. After a quick exploration of the site, go to the pyramid itself by clicking on “Inside the Pyramid.” Notice the new design, the food groups are now arranged in vertical bands rather than the old horizontal method. The pyramid is interactive so click on each band to see a brief review of each food group. For more detailed nutrition information and food choices in each group click on “learn more”. Notice that the recommendations for each food group promote healthy eating.

 For a personalized diet plan go to “Get a Personalized Plan”. You will type in your age, sex, height, weight, and level of activity. If you are overweight and in need of weight loss, the next page will alert you to this and ask if you would like to see a plan for your present weight or would like one to gradually reduce your weight. Pick the plan that will help you lose weight and see what recommendations there are for caloric intake and amount of food from each food group.

 Explore the site and register to create meals that are customized for your weight loss plan. After registering you can also track your consumption and level of exercise. This site is just packed with interesting information on everything from farm markets to organic foods. And the best part is that it is all free. The information is current and definitely has the goal of encouraging healthy weight loss and an adequate level of exercise.

 To Your Success,
