- Whole grain foods, vegetable oils, and fruits and vegetables are emphasized. - Physical activity and weight control are emphasized. - Red meat and refined grains (like white bread and white rice) are de-emphasized and listed as items that should only be eaten sparingly. - Nuts and legumes receive their own category. - Dairy products are de-emphasized and placed in a category with calcium supplements. - A daily multivitamin tablet is recommended for most people, and moderate daily alcohol intake is a healthy option unless this does not make sense for the individual.
