Food and Nutrition

If I follow Canada's Food Guide will it help me lose weight?

Canada’s Food Guide is not a weight-loss diet. It is intended for the generally healthy population to ensure that they are getting the recommended nutrients required to remain healthy. The recommended pattern of eating, combined with an active lifestyle will help reduce the risk of developing chronic disease in the future.

If you are currently overweight and begin eating as recommended in Canada’s Food Guide, then you may improve your nutritional status and potentially lose weight by following the Food Guide.

Visit Healthy Eating Basics  to understand how to use Canada's Food Guide as a guide to healthy eating.
