DENISE AUSTIN’S NUTRITIONIST GIVES ADVISE
ON CARBS AND ENERGY
Just as Denise Austin, Fitness Expert recommends holding a family meeting to discuss and create a family fitness plan, Riska Platt stressed the importance of creating a family eating plan. A plan which could include the use of the Food Guide Pyramid comprised of bread, cereal, rice and pasta: 6-11 servings. The Idaho potato is a great carbohydrate source, delivering 26 grams of carbohydrates and providing great energy. Vegetable groups: 3-5 servings; Fruit group: 2-4 servings; Milk, yogurt and cheese group: 2-3 servings; fats, oils and sweets: use sparingly.
Nutritionist Platt says “I don’t advocate the elimination of any major food group from a diet. Carbohydrates have come under attack lately and unjustly. Carbohydrates are the best fuel for working muscles. and potatoes are one of the best sources of complex carbohydrates. One Idaho Potato delivers 3 grams of dietary fiber, 4 grams of protein, 25 grams of carbohydrates, 45% of the RDA for Vitamin C, plus thiamin, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, copper and folic acid—not to mention built-in portion control.
