new dietary guidelines

If you eat this way I promise you will lose unwanted weight and have more energy- guaranteed.
The people who design government dietary guidelines are gagged by the fact that politics and business are so tightly intertwined in this country. Their advice will never directly target the primary source of obesity and metabolic dysfunction-- industrially processed food-- because that would hurt corporate profits in one of the country's biggest economic sectors.
More interesting is the take over of imaging and marketing to support a more truthful message. We're likely to see more of this as the ship sinks.

Couldn't agree more Nu, slow cooked, home grown where possible is the way to go:)

Excellent point. Although my take on it is a little different. I think the people that write the nutrition guidelines are guided by research. Unfortunately, who has money for research, big corporations and others with agendas to maintain their income streams.

The graphic made me laugh out loud. It totally nailed the standard "dietary guidelines" imagery.

And, I totally agree; it's why we grow as much of our own food as possible.
