Squaring Off the Food Pyramid
Finally, here is a food guide that helps clients make truly balanced food choices! Squaring Off The Food Pyramid encourages clients to preferentially choose produce and whole grains over refined starch and sugars, just what clients need to avoid excessive insulin production and aggravate metabolic processes. Clients are directed to choose enough lean protein with adequate fat — primarily those healthy unsaturated fats. In addition, food choices that are less desirable are addressed effectively. Clients are directed to eat less desirable foods “cautiously” and “judiciously”.
This is a great tool that gets away from “good food”, “bad food” thinking and encourages foods choices that work! Backside of handout outlines a basic summary of nutrition and fitness guidelines addressing issues in nutrition, physical activity and stress management.
Available in packages of 25.
