2010 Dietary Guidelines Target Obesity

By the end of the year, the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA), which recommend optimal dietary choices for U.S. citizens, will be released. What will they look like this time around? The DGA will focus on recommendations for reducing obesity and improving health, said Robert Post, Ph.D., Deputy Director of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture’s (USDA) Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, at a press conference hosted by USDA and the Institute of Food Technologists on July 19, 2010. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Report, released in June 2010, will shape the final version of the DGA. Every section of the report addresses the relationship between obesity and diet, as well as the effects of sodium intake on blood pressure. In addition, the report addresses eating behaviors, such as breakfast consumption, snacking and fast foods, and recommends a shift in food intake patterns to a more plant-based diet of vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
