Diet Pyramids



Always have heard of Diet Pyramids, but never heard off of the Asian, Mediterranean and African Diet Pyramids. And not surprisingly they all have many common items. To begin with all starts with physical activities. This I would guess is the most difficult thing to start with. As for the rest of the items of consumption in the pyramid, they are somewhat similar : greens, beans, legumes, poultry, fish, meat, etc. But the thing that struck me as unique was the African Diet Pyramid as they have broken the classification of greens into many sub categories and included something called "tubers"...aptly named after the physical look of these vegetables or root products.


The eager me says, just follow any of these pyramids and I will on the way to a healthier me. Afterall, there's nothing that you can't get here in Malaysia. But it all boils down to commitment. As it is my daily breakfast staple has been alternately with oats (no sugar / milk) and buckwheat porridge (again, no sugar / milk) with 2 slices of wholewheat breads and a cup of coffee. But the nagging fact is that I am not getting enough of the other good stuffs like greens, beans, nuts, etc. Now where do I start?
