2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans

According to the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the daily recommended intake of carbohydrates is 45-65% of total calories. This means that if you eat 2,000 calories a day, you should aim to consume 225-325 grams of carbohydrates.

The daily recommended intake of protein is 0.8-1.0 grams per kilogram of body weight. For example, a 150-pound person would need to consume 56-75 grams of protein per day.

The daily recommended intake of sugar is less than 10% of total calories. This means that if you eat 2,000 calories a day, you should aim to consume no more than 200 calories of sugar.

It is important to note that these are just general guidelines and your specific needs may vary depending on your age, sex, activity level, and overall health. It is always best to talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian to get personalized recommendations.

Here are some tips for eating a healthy diet that includes the recommended amount of carbohydrates, protein, and sugar:

  • Choose whole grains over refined grains. Whole grains are higher in fiber and nutrients than refined grains.

  • Choose lean protein sources, such as chicken, fish, beans, and tofu.

  • Limit processed foods and sugary drinks.

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.

  • Drink water instead of sugary beverages
