What you eat is so important the United States Goverment had to speak on it and did so very strongly. After extensive research and public hearing the US Senate Committee chaired by Senator McGovern issued "Dietary Goals for the United States" in the hope of saving lives and bringing down high costs of healthcare caused in large part by the kinds of foods we have become used to eating. The committee's report recommend that you reduce daily calorie intake; consume more of complex carbohydrates like wheat, whole cereals; reduce your use of refined sugars and fat; reduce your intake of saturated fat, and use more unsaturated fat; and reduce intake of cholesterol and sodium rich foods.

BE CAREFUL THOUGH
Many foods that seem natural do not have enough natural contents in them. Much of what is out there have been grown on soil engineered with chemicals and additives that make them produce a lot in as short amount of time as possible. The chemicals and additives interfer with nature's calendar of production. This interferrance make the foods less rich with natural ingredients. Use them with caution. Better yet, your local whole foods or organic foods and natural supplement stores are a good place to look for natural foods, though a bit more expensive. Best of all, educate yourself on natural foods that are good for you. You will know what makes sense when you hear it because you were made to know this way. Natural Foods
