TIP: A healthy diet in­cludes more foods from the base of the pyra­mid, than from the higher lev­els. When you were in grade school, you prob­a­bly stud­ied the old food pyra­mid, which showed that you needed ce­real, bread, rice, and pasta (in other words, carbs) more than other food groups. As new in­for­ma­tion emerged, the old food pyra­mid was thrown out and re­placed with an im­proved ver­sion.

Ex­perts at the Har­vard School of Pub­lic Health, Depart­ment of Nu­tri­tion in the U.S. de­vel­oped an up­dated “Healthy Eat­ing Pyra­mid” based on years of sci­en­tific re­search that re­de­fined what it means to eat healthy. It’s not meant to be a rigid road map, but rather a flex­i­ble guide for how you should eat to main­tain a healthy weight.
