I walk briskly to work 20 minutes, 5 days a week, and usually walk home. I have been doing light weight training at home. I dramatically changed my eating habits and raised my protein intake. Where can I get get guidance on healthful eating?

Eating and Exercise Planning

You can find a lot of good information and advice on healthful eating at a site set up by the U.S. Government to explain and support the latest USDA Food Guide Pyramid. Go to www.mypyramid.gov. Spend some time to get the most out of it. After all, if you're a taxpayer, you paid for it! The site also recommends exercise, but is less specific. The general recommendation is to do at least 30 minutes of cardio exercise five days a week. You should also do some weight training two or three times a week, and stretching a few times a week. You might like yoga or tai chi, or want to do some sports. Young people can start with more than the minimum, and make sure you find activities that are fun for you.
