  • Focus also lies on eating appropriate amounts of calories on the basis of age, gender, weight, stature and physical movement intensity.

Focusing on a better eating strategy can help a person prevent issues such as overweight and obesity. It also reduces the risk of illnesses such as cancer, diabetes and heart diseases. My plate also stipulates on choosing an eating style with reduced levels of saturated fats, added sugars and sodium.
