This plan is based on these new American Heart Association dietary guidelines.

bulletEat a variety of fruits and vegetables. Choose 5 or more servings per day.
bulletEat a variety of grain products, including whole grains. Choose 6 or more servings per day.
bulletInclude fat-free and low-fat milk products, fish, legumes (beans), skinless poultry and lean meats.
bulletChoose fats with 2 grams or less saturated fat per serving, such as liquid and tub margarines, canola oil and olive oil.
bulletBalance the number of calories you eat with the number you use per day. (To find out that number, multiply the number of pounds you weigh now by 15 calories. This represents the average number of calories used in one day if you are moderately active. If you get very little exercise, multiply by 13 instead of 15. Less-active people burn fewer calories.)
bulletMaintain a level of physical activity that keeps you fit and matches the number of calories you eat. Walk or do other activities for at least 30 minutes on most days. To lose weight, do enough activity to use up more calories than you eat every day.
bulletLimit your intake of foods high in calories or low in nutrition, including foods like soft drinks and candy that have a lot of sugars.
bulletLimit foods high in saturated fat, trans fat and/or cholesterol, such as full-fat milk products, fatty meats, tropical oils, partially hydrogenated vegetable oils and egg yolks. Instead choose foods low in saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol.
bulletEat less than 6 grams of salt (sodium chloride) per day(2,400 milligrams of sodium).
bulletHave no more than alcoholic drink per day if you're a woman and no more than two if you're a man. ("One drink" means it has no more than 1/2 ounce of pure alcohol
bulletEvery minute men eat:
bullet7,398 hot dogs
bullet12,989 pounds of beef
bullet40 pounds of tofu
bullet1,500 Dunkin' Donuts
