Wrapping up this morning’s session on Obesity and Cancer: Implications for Public Health, Dr. Suzanne Murphy spoke about the “new” dietary advice to reduce energy (eat less). The new U.S. Dietary Guidelines include the following: Americans should “significantly reduce intake of foods with added sugar and solid fat.”
An easy way to remember: SOFAS (SOlid Fats and Added Sugar).
For ideas on how to “get off the SOFAS” see the AICR expert report recommendation on sugary drinks and energy dense foods. You can also get information on how to make changes from the AICR New American Plate section of aicr.org.
