Cappy, I couldn't help but notice that the pyramid you have above is the older version. The USDA has changed the pyramid a bit in the last year or two, I believe. You can check it out at

Is it okay if we just choose which version we want to follow?

Cappy 11-28-2007 01:00 PM

Sure, I just picked the first one that came up on the my google search. Thanks for clearing that up

Can someone help me out with what 3 oz of grains might look like in servings?

I understand 5 oz of meat but I don't understand 3 oz of grain. The Canada Health Guide just uses servings.

oh i might have found a link that helps...stay tuned for further request

Your pyramid doesn't have a "Chocolate Group"?

techgoddess 11-29-2007 03:35 PM

Hey, just wanted to jump in here and note that when you go to the USDA page and get your customized pyramid, there's a link to a PDF file it will create for you that is a daily worksheet. It works really well for our challenge to just print out a bunch of copies of that, then record your food on it daily.

Chocolate is made with milk. Milk has calcium. Milk is dairy

The weight you entered is above the healthy range for your height. i.e. Holy smokes woman.. YOU'RE a FREAKIN FAT COW!

Extra weight can put you at a higher risk for many health problems including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Weight loss is recommended for people with weights similar to yours. Thanks for telling me something I don't already know and am diligently working my buns off to change.
