(E.G. fruit,  vegetables, milk) The metabolic rate can vary depending on AGE, GENDER, PROPORTION OF MUSCLE TO FAT, AMOUNT OF EXERSISE and GENERIC TRAITS.     TYPE OF FOOD                                         AMOUNT FOR A BALANCED DIET Grains & Cereals                                                          Eat the most Fruits & Vegetables                                                     Eat alot Meat, Poultry, Eggs, Fish, Dry Beans and Dairy      Eat moderately Fat, Oil, Salts, Sweet                                                    Eat the least
