Food Diary
My diet compare to the recommendations I received from the Food Guide Pyramid has a lot to be desired, the first day my dairy intake was less than one cup, meat and beans intake was less than 6 ounces, fruit intake did not equal 3 cups, grain intake was less than 7 ounces, vegetable intake was less than 1cup.

My servings ranged from 1 of the dairy family to 6 servings each of the carbohydrates. The second day I increased my fruit intake and meat intake, decreased the bread intake and I increased the dairy intake because I included cheese but I am going to have to substitute something else because I am lactose intolerant. The milk I drink is lactose free and nonfat.

I will have to work very hard on the modifications because I am going thru menopause and the cravings are unbearable at times. I have considered taking diet pills to control the cravings. I am borderline diabetic (I may be full blown but my doctor has not confirmed that yet). I will need to increase my physical activities.

Some nutrient-rich foods that I could add to my daily diet are brown rich, cold pressed virgin olive oil, more vegetables and increase my water intake. The food labels were:
