Where do the diet patterns and images come from?

Using scientific research literature, our team of registered dietitians engineer an ever-expanding map of diets that capture the eating patterns of over 90% of Americans (with plans to incorporate international diets). Each and every diet is analyzed for over 150 nutrients and scored for quality using the Healthy Eating Index 2015, the most widely used and scientifically validated diet scoring system available. Once the diet patterns are verified and scored, our culinary cartography team creates stunning visuals of the foods that represent each pattern.
