Remember the food pyramid? It went through stages and dietitians tried to use it to teach the general public about nutrition but everyone was very confused by it.
Well, they changed the brand and adopted the plate. Same nutrition concepts, much more user friendly. "The Plate Method" has been around for a long time and I find it to be a very helpful tool because honestly, who remembers what they ate for breakfast and how many servings of what?! We live in the moment and the less adding and remembering we have to do, the more successful we tend to be.
Teach yourself the different food groups and adjust your portions to the plate (http://www.choosemyplate.gov/food-groups/). Combine this portioning with your other nutrition knowledge and you are on the road to great health!
