Nicci asks: Tell us what you think Americans should and shouldn’t be eating and we’ll pass it on to the advisory committee.


Go Green by eating greens. There was a show where the host said, "If you're green inside, you're clean inside." Catchy little phrase.

these are great corrections to the food pyramid, i'm happy to see that the government is catching up to what even popular culture has realized is necessary. the new food pyramid is fantastic as well!

I am a Tulane University student, and I'm trying to decide on a career path to take when I graduate this December. I came across your blog, and am extremely interested in what you do. I'd love to chat with you about your education and experience in the field, but do not know how to contact you.

Would you be willing to talk to me? Do you have an Eating Well e-mail address?

Thanks so much,

Point Number 6 and 7 should be reduced; but rather remove from the diet
