As many of you are probably already aware, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently released new dietary guidelines for Americans (you can see them here). In their own words, "... the recommendations encompass two overarching concepts:
- Maintain calorie balance over time to achieve and sustain a healthy weight.
- Focus on consuming nutrient-dense foods and beverages. ..."
These two concepts are lofty and noble and the guidelines are safe. A bit too safe and I'm not the only one who thinks this. The folks over at Harvard agree with our take on refined sugars and carbohydrates (here). They also are in line with how we feel about Vitamin D (here, here and here). The guidelines are far too passive on Vitamin D and not in line with the current research for such low recommendations.
Here is one simple, free guideline recommendation for you - drink Bios Life Slim. Slim utilizes a dietary fiber matrix with clinically proven results (go here to see the results on the fiber matrix for yourself) for cholesterol management and blood sugar regulation. It's safe (gluten free) and easy to use (mix and drink). The simple addition of fiber to your diet will have marked impact on your overall health not just on the reduction of cardiovascular disease and diabetes risks - but your overall health. Get started with Slim today for a healthier you.
