MICHELLE COOPER: Next, we're going to talk about energy. Energy is measured in calories. Energy is what we need everyday to perform our job, to exercise, so everything that we do is fueled by the calories that we eat. If you look at the food guide pyramid for adults, you'll see that most of your calories or your energy should come from complex carbohydrates, which are things like fruits and vegetables, whole grains, cereals and breads, wheat pasta, whole wheat, brown rice and that sort of thing, so about 50% of your caloric intake should be from this group right here. Twenty percent of your caloric intake or your energy needs should be supplied by foods that are found in the meat, meat alternate or protein group, which would also be nuts and beans as well. And lastly, no more than 30% of your energy needs or your caloric intake should be from fat. And of that fat, we want to make sure that mostly it is polyunsaturated or monounsaturated with only 10% of saturated fat supplying those needs. So remember, when we're talking about energy, we're talking about calories. And number one, you want most of your calories to be from complex carbohydrates such as fruits and vegetables and whole grains. Twenty percent of those calories are going to be from protein, and no more than 30% of those calories are going to be from fat.
