Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The Dietary Guidelines are designed to help Americans choose diets that will meet nutrient
requirements, promote health, support active lives, and reduce chronic disease risks.
Research has shown that certain diets raise risks for chronic diseases. Such diets are high
in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and salt. They are low in vegetables, fruit, and fiber, and they
contain more energy than the body uses. The Guidelines help you choose foods, meals, and
diets that will reduce those risks.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
