What government tells you to eat is all wrong

Posted in : Thoughts on by : Chris

Here’s a take from a doctor – plenty of smart folks are realizing that the government’s food pyramid is pretty much garbage: the guidelines on that sucker are almost guaranteed to give you a life of obesity and disease. Perfect for Big Food (let’s make sure that everyone get their share of corn based products) and Big Pharma (make ’em sick then we’ll make billions on the drugs to make them better).

Throw those out! Read up on what human beings should really be eating. I firmly believe that most of the ailments we have today are due to the crappy diets we’ve been eating: low-fat is bad for you…

I have a hobby. When I see a healthy patient over 90 years old, I always ask them about their diet, and the answer is almost always the same: They lean over and, sounding a little guilty like the kid who got caught with their hand in the cookie jar, say something like, “Well, I hate to tell you this, but I have eaten butter, eggs and bacon all my life.”At which point I ask the female patients about their pie cooking – and they all agree they used lard.
