Food Guide Pyramid - Pear Shaped Americans
The U.S. government will refashion its Food Guide Pyramid to help pear-shaped Americans eat less fat and exercise more. As two-thirds of Americans either overweight or obese, consumers have largely ignored the government's dietary guidelines, and keep eating too many high calorie sweets and fats rather than fruits and vegetables.

Developed in 1992, the Food Guide Pyramid offers a general outline on how much a healthy person should eat each day from the five major food groups. The Pyramid is the main educational tool used to help consumers interpret the U.S. Dietary Guidelines, which will be revised in 2005. No new shapes have been proposed yet.

Food Guide Pyramid - Calories & Fat
For the first time, the USDA takes into account that most Americans do not exercise regularly.

Under the proposal, the USDA offers significantly more detail on the amount of calories certain groups should consume on a daily basis. Groups are based on age, sex and level of exercise. The proposed recommended servings of fruits, vegetables, grains, meat and milk are based on 12 calorie levels ranging from 1,000 to 3,200 calories daily. The current Pyramid bases food portions on only three levels -1,600, 2,200 and 2,800 calories.
An example, a 25-year-old female who doesn't exercise needs about 2,000 calories per day. While a woman at the same age who walks three miles-a-day needs 400 more calories.
