Lifestyle Guidelines for Type 2

Infinitely more useful than the Food Pyramid thing.

New "Lifestyle" Guidelines for Type 2 Diabetes: A Newsmaker Interview

In the new recommendations, 40% of daily calories come from carbohydrates; 20% to 30% from protein (except in the presence of renal disease); 30% to 35% from fat, (mostly mono- and polyunsaturated fats); and the diet consists of a minimum of 20 to 35 g of fiber. By reducing daily caloric intake by 250 to 500 calories, individuals should be able to lose one pound every one to two weeks. Total daily caloric intake should be at least 1,000 to 1,200 for women and 1,200 to 1,600 for men. To maintain or increase lean body mass, the guidelines recommend a target of 60 to 90 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity, including cardiovascular, stretching, and resistance activities most days of the week, with a minimum of 150 to 175 minutes weekly.
