Nutrition Guidelines for Healthy Eating
If you're trying to interpret the nutrition analysis on Health.com, use the figures below as a daily reference guide. Remember that one size doesn't fit all. Take lifestyle, age, and circumstances into consideration. For example, pregnant or breast-feeding women need more protein, calories, and calcium. Go to ChooseMyPlate.gov for your own individualized plan.
