  • Great USDA food pyramid articles?

    I've read some great ones over the years but my bookmarks folder is failing me. If you have a favourite that focuses specifically on deconstructing and critiquing the food pyramid with good referencing please share here to save me time.

    Google is your friend. Start with 'Criticism of the Food Pyramid' and go from there.

    Denise Minger is made of win, as usual.

    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Griff's cholesterol primer
    5,000 Cal Fat <> 5,000 Cal Carbs
    Winterbike: What I eat every day is what other people eat to treat themselves.
    TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.

      Thanks, I agree and Denise Minger was one of my first searches, I know she is bringing out a book on the subject. Also searched Chris Kresser and Chris Masterjohn. I'll look again tomorrow if I can, am seeking a stand alone comprehensive critique that doesn't assume prior knowledge or a paleo leaning.

        Was it this you meant?


        It's since been replaced by a "plate". But that's much the same.

          Thanks for that Lewis, not one I've seen before.
