Images for Blank Food Pyramid: To A Healthy Food Guide
Blank Food Pyramid - There are two kinds of food pyramids that we know so far. The first is the food pyramid showing the ecosystem that we live in and the food pyramid that is related with human, animals and even plants. This food pyramid depicts that those living things are related each other in feeding.
For example, sheep eat plants or grass. When sheep are slaughtered, they are then eaten by human. It is like a chain and cannot be separated. This pyramid shows us that we won’t be able to live alone in this world called earth. We need friend, plants and animals together balancing the ecosystem. That is a brief about the first food pyramid.
The second food pyramid is a pyramid that is used as a medium to divide food according to some categories. This pyramid is divided into some sections. It shows recommended healthy food as the intake for our body. Each section in this food pyramid gives a depiction on how much fat, sugar, salt, carbohydrate and other nutrients that our body needs.
Using blank food pyramid as a guidance to a healthy diet
If you are planning to have a healthy diet, food pyramid can be used to maintain the portions of food you eat. You can use a blank food pyramid so you can divide yourself which food or nutrition your body needs. You have to remember that it is about what your body needs not about what you need. But before you divide which food includes to each section of your food pyramid, you have to first consult to your doctor. If you do not, it may cause serious problem to your health. You first better ask your doctor which food that your body needs. It is because every person has their own portion of nutrition needed by their body. Thus, we cannot use somebody else’s food pyramid as a guidance to a healthy diet of ours. In a blank food pyramid, you have to put food that is not very essential for your body on the top of the pyramid. The lower section will be the food you need but only when you eat it in small amount. The lowest section of the blank food pyramid will be a section for extremely important food for your body.
