daniel-lopez-food-pyramidDaniel is a senior at the University of South Florida, and did his summer at a large automotive company in southeastern Michigan. One of his first assignments his manager gave him was to read the Idea Mapping book. I met Daniel in June and he was already becoming a huge fan and user of MindManager.
One of Daniel’s learnings was how to live on his, so he created the food pyramid map because when he first got to Michigan he had no idea what he needed to eat everyday. Because he does lots of sports including triathlons, he wanted to eat healthy. He went online to a government site on health and diets and found the food pyramid. Daniel decided to make it into an idea map since it is easier to read, and he could easily point out the pictures in order to see what he needed for a healthy diet. He also had the foods he ate most next to each category so he could remember what he needed to get at the grocery. He put this map on the refrigerator and it helped him follow a healthy diet for the 3 months that he was in Michigan. Maybe Daniel will send us an idea map of one of his subjects this fall, and we can see how he applies his new learning to his studies???

You can see a clearer pdf version of this map on my website under “Additional Maps”. If you click on any column it will sort alphabetically and you can then search by author or title (Food Pyramid) of the map.
