Nutrition Plan for 22 year old?

Does anyone know of a good site online to tell you how much of all of the vitamins and stuff you should be getting at a particular age? I took a nutrition class a while ago that had everything broken down according to your sex and age and I'm looking for something like that again.

    Hi there,

    Here is a site that lets you enter in data like your age, your gender, and your amount of physical activity.

    The site is run by the US Government and pretty up to date on any nutritional changes in regards to healthy eating. Here is what the site says:

    MyPyramid Plan can help you choose the foods and amounts that are right for you. For a quick estimate of what and how much you need to eat, enter your age, sex, and activity level...

    Here is the link: http://www.mypyramid.gov/

    These are some guidelines and interesting facts i tell everyone:

    remember: these are guidelines. You define what is healthy for YOU! granted sugar, ect is not healthy. but the point is that you just step up the veggies and other stuff more than you already eat.

    YOu need to drink alot of water and get you matabolism going! Heres how:


    this may seem nasty but it works!!!!!!!!!!!! trust me.

    1. Drink 1-2 tblespoons of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR!(twice daily) this kind of vinegar helps your body burn fat! look it up. (its all over the web)

    2. Drink Green Tea. Perferably in the Morning and Evening. This also burns fat by increasing your matabalism. look it up (its all over the web)

    3. For breakfast eat = half a grapefruit! grapefruit is great for you and it takes more energy to digest than most fruits. Guess what that means? your body burns more fat!

    4. If your really serious take a small amount of water and mix 1/2 teaspoon of CAYENNE Pepper (or more) and swallow that really fast. Chilli Pepper works too. Its not that hot and if you swallow it fast only the back of your throat will burn a little. These peppers make your matabolism go really fast NATURALLY!

    5. Pick 3 of the ab workouts from this site http://www.shapefit.com/workout-routines...

    do 1 of set in the morning of each (after eating your grapefruit and tea) do 3 sets of each, every night! (or more)

    6. Walking will help ALOT! walk to your friends house, to the park, around the corner, take your dog on a walk, walk around your house a couple of times, SOMETHING!

    7. While watching your favorite tv show do jumping jacks. Youll be so into the show you wont even realize your doing jacks! Take a break during 2 or 3 commercials. Before you start Drink a BIG cup of water. After you finish drink 2 big cups of water in 30 mins.

    8. Drink at least half a gallon of water a day.

    9. Eat less. Eat healthy. NO SUGAR. (or very very littile of it) That is very general, I know. But you have to make your own rules, I just give guidelines. Your dinner plate should be 50-60 % veggies. And include a meat or fish. And one starch (like portioned rice)

    10. Dont weigh yourself. You will have alot of water weight so the scale might not be accurate. Just pinch the fat on your stomach. Notice how much you pinch. Pinch your fat everynight. after a coule of weeks notice how you will start to pinch less and less!

    11. Tell me your results!




    13. BEst Ab Workouts:



    14. Extra Cardio is always good<<<<
