Food Pyramid

At dinner last night, one of my co-workers made an interesting comment. He said that the U.S. food pyramid was exactly the diet that we feed to livestock to make them fat....

Someone once told me "If you eat according to the food pyramid you will LOOK just like a pyramid!"

The traditional food pyramid is a farce. Not only is it difficult to eat the appropriate amounts of each food group, it is based upon a carb burning model instead of a fat burning model. I'd rather burn fat than carbs. Wouldn't you?

This gave me such a good chuckle! Thanks.

I had heard that before. It's interesting to think about things like that. Perhaps we are raised to be unhealthy.

isn't that nice that the american food "healthy" pyramid is being used to get animals fat. No wonder half of us in this country can be rolled down the street. Do you love paris, I was there last new years eve.
