  • Mark's New Pyramid

    I'm sure people have noticed Mark's New Pyramid if they bought his new book.

    I love it.

    I founf that i was always eating more meet and eggs to feel satisfied. I was trying to eat more fruits and veggies, but my carbs were getting a little high. this makes much more sence, and my body agrees.

    Thanks, Mark.

      Agree. I have always been heavier on the meat and I'll eat a couple of pounds a day on active days. Meat's got what you need. Vegetables are a supplement, not the main course.

      I still disagree that tubers/starches are on the small end of the pyramid. I think things like sweet potatoes should be on the same level as leafy vegetables. But not for obese/diabetic people. So there really need to be two pyramids. But that would get too complicated and it's probably better to keep the message simple for people just starting out.
      Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

        Agreed. I think that most of us that have been doing this for awhile can figure out what does and does not work and implement what we have figured out through trial and error. Those just starting out need it to be simple. Complicating it will just make it, well......complicated. That will cause people to give up. Not saying that they are dumb and can't figure it out. It's just that in most cases the simplest approach is usually the most successful one.

        I would like to see a pic of the new pyramid. I could buy the book I guess but I don't need it really.

            Please post a pic. Was not planning on buying new book since several people says it just re-caps the basics.

              I second Trish's request. I have PB and am not going to buy the new book.

              Could someone please post the new pyramid?

                Lets see if this works-
                DOC102811-003..pdf

                Yes, it worked! So the darker areas on the pyramid above healthy fats are
                Moderation Foods; Fruits (locally grown, in season, high antioxidant (berries, pitted fruit); High Fat Dairy (raw, fermented, unpasteurized); Starchy Tubers, Wild Rice (athlete's carb option); Other nuts, seeds and nut butters (great snack option)

                Herbs, Spices Extracts; Sensible Indulgences (dark chocolate, red wine); Supplements (omega 3, probiotics, protein/meal powder)

                    I'm guessing they will change it on the MDA site soon (under Primal 101).

                      I bought the book to support Mark. It's cheap on Amazon too.

                        what is the difference between the pyramids and why did they change it?
                        I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

                          Yeah, Mark's doing just fine, judging by the pictures his house in the book. I bought it mostly so I have something I don't mind giving someone if they want info about the PB.

                            Basically, the new pyramid has 5 sections instead of 4. On the bottom is meat, fish, fowl and eggs (as opposed to vegetables and fruits which was on the bottom before). Above that is vegetables. Above that is good fats. Above that is the new section: moderation foods (eg. high-fat dairy, starchy tubers and fruits). Finally, on the top is herbs, spices, etc.

                            Having one pyramid is obviously an oversimplification, because each person has their own needs. But I feel at my best when I lots of (healthy, preferably dark green) vegetables. Your carb intake isn't going to rise that much eating lots of salad and dark green veggies. In terms of raw weight, I'd say vegetables have to be equal to or greater than animal foods. Hence the huge salad with lots of lettuce and spinach .

                            And speaking of carbs, who cares if you're getting a few carbs when you eat, say, a whole broccoli or cauliflower? That thing is so good for you and delicious! Meat should be altered according to activity level, while vegetables should be the integral part of everybody's diet.

                            Just to make it clear, I eat a LOT of meat, fish and eggs (just had about 200g of lamb's liver and a chicken breast with a salad), because I do a lot of exercise. I just think veggies are as important for healthy functioning of the body .
