I know I have to work on my plate; I'm always lacking in protein. I wish I could find a way to get it in. I've been doing better with the the other.
Thank you GLITTERRGIRL for all you do to help us become healthy individuals.

Spark People Team Leader, GLITTERGIRL, from Team, "I Can't Do This On My Own", helped me reach my goal in 2012.

I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

That familiar food pyramid (introduced in 1991) was supposed to be our nutrition survival guide in a one-size-fits-all world. But let's face it—many people found the pyramid to be confusing, and felt that it didn't really help individuals know how to plan a healthy diet, one meal at a time.

So in May 2011, the USDA finally ditched the pyramid concept in favor of a brand new shape: a circle—or rather, a plate. Their former "MyPyramid" website was also revamped and now redirects to a new online tool:
