An individual’s pattern of eating should include a variety of nutrient-dense foods while limiting empty calories. Nutrient dense foods are foods with a mix of high nutrient content and relatively low calories. Foods consisting of multiple vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and lean proteins are considered nutrient-dense. Empty calories offer minimal nutrients, but have relatively high calories providing little to no health benefit. Solid fats and added sugars in both foods and beverages are primarily responsible for empty calories in the American diet.
