Menu Balanced DietIn losing weight, you need “Menu Balanced Diet”. You need 7 food groups. These seven food groups are required for good health. Scaling back on your portions, if the scales creep up more than 5 pounds in a week, is better than omitting any of the 7 food groups of a balanced diet.

Why menu balanced diet is very important? Because, it will help you receive the vitamins and minerals you need without supplements in most cases. And here the 7 food groups for menu balanced diet:

1. Milk and dairy products, Normal cup of whole milk has 160 calories. A simple 1 ½ cup of ice cream has 420 calories. Remember to look at the serving size and the calorie count, knowing this is sometime you need to take into consideration for weight control.

2. Meat and Protein-Rich Foods. Samples of servings are 2-3 ounces of meat, 4 tablespoon peanut butter, 2 eggs, or ½ cup tuna. A balanced diet is not complete without the meat group.

3. Citrus fruits or vitamin C substitute. A balanced diet, for this group, is needed to repair tissue and provide resistance to infection. Some samples would be a small orange, ½ cup orange juice, ¾ cup of strawberries, or 1 cup of tomato juice.

4. One serving of the dark green or deep yellow vegetables of ½ cup is needed. You will receive good vision from the vitamin A in these foods.

5. Two serving of other fruits and vegetables for fiber, minerals, vitamins, and minerals. A half cup of the food group, for a balanced diet, is a serving for this food. Here the sample that will give you lots of choices make the menu making easier for you, apples, bananas, cherries, grapes, pears, pineapple, melons, beets, cabbage, eggplants, mushrooms, radishes, string beans, etc.

6. Bread and cereal. Here we can have 4 servings for all. The foods in this group are important sources of carbohydrates, iron, and vitamins. Whole grain products also contain large amounts of fiber. Whole grain bread has more fiber. The other sample of this group is crackers, baked beans, corn, potatoes, rice, pasta, cooked cereals, and breads (whole grain is best.)

7. The last food group for menu balanced diet is feared the most but 3 servings are needed by children and adults. Vegetable oils and fat are the group needed for transporting fat-soluble vitamins and providing essential fatty acid. Three servings daily are very small. One teaspoon of margarine, oil, butter, or mayonnaise, one slice of bacon, 4" avocado, 5 olives, and 2-6 nuts are samples of this food group.
