The government advisory committee from the beloved Agriculture and Health and Human Services departments recommended on Thursday a diet that is low in sugar, salt, and red meat.
According to the Agriculture Secretary, Tom Vilsack, the government will take the recommendations into account before adding it to the final guidelines for consumers in their 2015 report.
In essence, this entire report will be the same as the guidelines from the 2010 report, which also says to stay away from sugar and salt.
Despite their redundancy, the report does mention —listen up, coffee lovers— that three to five cups of coffee a day can be part of a healthy diet. WHAT?!
But of course, they said that coffee is only healthy without the cream, milk, and sugars.
Other than that, the panel recommends that you eat more vegetables (duh), fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds (not the salted ones, of course), and lean meats.
The final 2015 dietary guidelines will affect school lunches, food package labels, and even the advice your doctor gives you.
Until then, brace yourself America, big changes are headed your way.
