The screen will open and show “Get Your MyPlate Plan”; choose “Start”. Enter the information requested regarding your age, sex, weight, height, and current level of physical activity. Then Click “Calculate Food Plan” to obtain the daily kcalories needed to maintain your current weight. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the box that matches your age and kcalorie needs and review your food group intake recommendations. Record these as well as the kcalories needed to maintain your current weight for later use. Then visit the Action Guide at the bottom of the page and review Tips for Adults regarding reaching nutritional goals, meal planning, and more. 3.
