Dietary Guidelines

Considering that more than one-third (35 percent or 78.6 million) of U.S. adults are obese per the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans remain a critical tool for consumers and health professionals. Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer – some of the leading causes of preventable death.

To address these significant public health issues and offer general nutrition recommendations, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans are revised every five years by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion. The next version will be issue in early 2020.
