I've worked as a dietitian for the past ten years. I spent much of that time teaching folks to eat based on the food guide pyramid and it rarely helped anyone. Over the past year I discovered primal/paleo/perfect health diet and it really changed my life. It also works well for my patients/clients when u can talk them in to using it. Some have asked me to put up a post about this, so I did.
