Today at my HMO (Kaiser) (one of the big 3), while I waited I watched their TV program. And guess what. They have dumped the FDA's food pyramid. They have replaced it with another pyramid that has veggies on the bottom and no meats, grains half way up. A little fish at the top. In fact, they were running that movie about the men who lost around 200 lbs drinking green vomit. The movie was interspaced with doctors comments and their new pyramid. (Green vomit = vegetables and fruit juiced by The magic bullet.)

What is happening here? Is this related to Obesity becomming a disease? Or is Kaiser taking a bold step away from the Gov'ts recommendations and the Insurance Companies rulings? I really doubt the latter.

Do you consider this a move forward because it emphasizes grains less, or backwards because it's pretty much vegetarian?
