June 2011. United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) replaced the pyramid with a visual plate that shows the food groups. Here is the suggestion that I am using to “survive my second life”. You can use it too. In many places the plates are too big. Keep a good rim around the plate, choose smaller portions or select a smaller plate. If you are eating out with another person, select a salad and one entree and ask for extra small plates to share. Be healthy, eat less and better.
