Cool Site: MyPyramid

My Pyramid

We all tend to want to get healthier and eat better. With My Pyramid you can figure out where your eating habits already are and start from there. I do not eat healthy. My idea of dieting is eating what I want in the right portions and drinking less pop. I also tend to skip meals (both breakfast and lunch, depending on the day). I’m a picky eater. No fish or fungus need ever cross my plate! I’m also only an occasional exerciser.

“One Size Doesn’t Fit All. MyPyramid Plan can help you choose the foods and amounts that are right for you.” That really got my attention. Finally, there is someplace that understands that not everyone can do a general diet.

To figure out what you need to be eating, click on My Pyramid Plan on the side menu. Enter your age, sex, and activity level, and it will calculate what types of things you need to eat and how much of them you should get weekly. You can then click each food group to get tips on what kinds of things count for that area. It will even give you meal ideas and ways to get your kids to eat better by following your example. I can’t wait to give these a try! I’m doing pretty well to maintain my weight, but in order to lose pounds, you need to cut calories. Goodbye, candy bars!

I went through the other sections on the side menu, now geared towards my information. Their biggest recommendation is balancing activity with eating. I’m not nearly active enough.

To start assessing your diet, click My Pyramid Tracker. You’ll need to register, but it’s free! It asks you to set up an account name and password, and then you need to give it your age, height, and weight. Everything else is optional. Then you are given the option of Assessing your Food Intake or Assessing your Physical Activity. You start inputting your information and this site tracks it to show you how you are really living. For the Physical Activity, you choose between standard and condensed. Each is thoroughly explained right on the page. I chose Standard. This lets you search by Activity or Keyword. When you find the one that most resembles what you did click Add Activity. This starts your log.

Back at the main site, there is the tip of the week section. This one was about consuming dairy if you are lactose intolerant. I am lactose intolerant and have to take a pill before I eat dairy. But this gives other alternatives of things you can eat.

This is one of the better sites to really get you on track with what you need to be eating.
