Recommended Servings for Type AB’s

Recommended-ServingsCreate a healthy eating pattern that meets nutrient needs and stays within calorie limits.

The suggested number of servings is based on a daily intake of 1,600-2,000 calories. The right number of calories for you depends on your age, physical activity level, and whether you are trying to lose, gain, or maintain your weight.
If you need fewer calories than shown, decrease the number of servings. Increase the servings if you need more calories.
