New Dietary Guidelines for Americans-What is new!
'Ultraprocessed' is the new way of talking about foods that should not be consumed regularly or in large amounts — tons of evidence has come in within the last five years. It is the main food sources of sugar, saturated fat and salt, which need to be limited. ‘Ultraprocessed’ was not included because the independence of the 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee was removed by the federal government. There is still a lot of good in it and it should be followed but try to limit ‘Ultraprocessed’ foods.
• The committee report suggested reducing current guidance from two drinks for men and one drink a day for women to one drink a day for both women and men.
• The committee had also recommended that no amount of added sugar is OK for a baby's development.
• "For about the first 6 months of life, exclusively feed infants human milk. Continue to feed infants human milk through at least the first year of life, and longer if desired," the new guidelines stated, adding that if human milk is unavailable parents and guardians should feed infants "iron-fortified" formula during the first year of life.
• The guidance states that a "healthy dietary pattern" consists of nutrient-dense forms of foods and beverages across all food groups, in recommended amounts, and within calorie limits. These foods consist of protein, oils, dairy, vegetables, grains and fruits.
• This pattern includes dark green, red and orange vegetables, beans, peas, lentils and other starches, whole fruits and whole grains, as well as vegetable oils, lean meats, poultry, eggs, nuts, fat-free or low-fat milk, yogurt and cheese.
• And lastly, the final guideline is to "limit foods and beverages higher in added sugars, saturated fat, and sodium, and limit alcoholic beverages, at every life stage."
• The American Institute for Cancer Research also suggested that the recommendations don't fully represent research about the health benefits of reducing the intake of processed meats and added sugars beyond the 10% of calories recommended by the new guidelines.
• The guidelines don't touch on the topic of red meat -- a major supplier of saturated fat in the American diet and a huge player in the argument over food sustainability and environmental impact. Instead, the guidelines suggest replacing processed or high-fat meats, like hot dogs, sausages and bacon, with seafood or beans, peas and lentils to meet protein recommendations. They also suggest that the majority of meat and poultry a person consumes should be fresh, frozen or canned, and in lean forms, like chicken breast or ground turkey, rather than processed meats like ham or other deli meat.
