The newest revision of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010 has now been released with no big changes. There are some tweaks such as more suggestions on healthy foods rather than the unhealthy ones. Added sugar now gets separate emphasis. The basic numeric targets are the same for the major nutrients. The most controversial change came in the recommendation of only 1500 mg of sodium per day for those at risk of hypertension. The average American consumes more than twice that!
