I am participating in a health lifestyle course here at the University of Florida. So a quick background on the course…it’s titles “Preventative Health Experiences” and focuses on teaching college students how to self-monitor and make adjustments in their overall health. The goal, of course, is to prevent the onset of chronic conditions by educating students early.
One point that the students requested were dietary and physical activity references to compare their health lifestyles too. So, below are the two national guidelines, one for nutrition and the other for physical activity. Anyone can use them as a reference for themselves and as a guide to help make recommendations to family, friends, or future patients/clients.
