Just last week, the government released its 8th Edition of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

 

Government Releases the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans 
These guidelines are the result of a large body of evidence which shows that healthy eating patterns and regular physical activity can help people achieve and maintain good health and reduce the risk of chronic disease throughout all stages of the lifespan. The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans reflects this evidence. See graphic below:
