My Pyramid

I was excited about the number of you who emailed me wanting to try to implement a more balanced, nutritional diet! I think that is a very wise choice to make for not only losing weight but for becoming as healthy as you possibly can be. You are going to have to keep me updated on your progress if you decide to try this out.

I thought that before I figured it out for each of you I would search for an easy way you can do it yourself and learn everything you need to know about this way of eating. I was successful!

Think what you want about the government, but they really have done a GREAT job with the MyPyramid website. It is excellent. It does all the things that some very popular weight loss programs offer online (and then some!) but the great thing about this is--it's free!

Go check it out:

http://www.mypyramid.gov/

If you click on the Mypyramid Plan link on the left side of the main site, it will take you to the form for determining your food group serving allowances which is what I offered to do for you yesterday. It also offers helpful tips for each food group. There is so much valuable information and interactive stuff that I can't even begin to tell about it all here. I WILL tell you that I am going to be a frequent flier to this website.

By the way--there is nothing groundbreaking about this food plan. It's been around for oh, I'd say since about the beginning of time. It is eating simple foods in proper amounts. God created such a beautiful variety of foods to enjoy. He created them to be just the perfect thing to sustain human life. There are none we should leave out. There are none we should abuse.

If we eat food in a balanced way, our bodies will perhaps slowly, but surely begin to unveil His fearfully and wonderfully made perfection.

Thanks for sharing this link. I've been slacking off a little and need a good reminder right about now.

That is great! Although I could have done without them throwing up an alert that I am overweight at my weight and height. Yes, thank you, I am aware of that, that is why I am here.

Thank you for posting this! I just found out that I am pregnant, so I don't want to try losing weight. I would like to eat more balanced and healthier though, so this will really help with that.

Keelie I really like this site! I'm a bit confused since it says I should be eating more than I am currently eating. I wonder if this is why I can't seem to get these last stubborn 10 pounds to move? Thank you for the info. I'll adjust and keep on moving my buns even more! Ha! :)

Thanks so much!!! I printed my pyramid out and also one for a friend. I really want to continue staying healthy rather than focusing so much on pounds lost. I was always a good weight until my mid 40s and then every year I gained 5 pounds and never took it off drat it!!! I'm 62 now so you can see what the years have done haha. I can laugh because I'm still active and have no serious health issues NOW.....
