Default Is the UK Government's Eatwell Plate guidance harming us?

The Eatwell Guide


Sheila Dillon questions whether the government's Eatwell Plate that's issued to the medical profession and used as public guidance for a balanced diet could actually be harming us.

An increasing number of medics are abandoning the plate because they say it still promotes dangerously high levels of starchy carbohydrates and processed foods that contain high levels of the sugars that cause many of today's chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra author of the Pioppi diet is campaigning to change the official advice and says that a healthy diet and lifestyle are the key to reducing disease and the need for medication, but he says that vested interests from the food and pharmaceutical industries make some of these healthier choices more difficult to achieve.

Dr David Unwin is a GP who has seen a huge spike in patients presenting with Type 2 Diabetes since he began practicing forty years ago. He advises lifestyle changes that include abandoning the Eatwell Guide and cutting out the starchy carbohydrates, processed foods and sugars and has seen a reversal of the disease in a significant number of patients.

Sheila also visits Tameside Hospital in Greater Manchester which is overhauling its canteen food and vending machine produce to reduce processed carbohydrates and sugary drinks and snacks. In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the NHS the hospital will go completely sugar free on July 4th.

Is it time to revise the Eatwell Guide and what will it take to do so?

For those who are interested, this is a recent article written by Sheila Dillon, presenter of the BBC’s The Food Programme, on food inequality:


“Mass production has brought cheap food to everyone; it’s brought disease and death as well”

Sweets, scones, fish 'n chips

One thing I noticed in Britain years ago: foods were less processed than here in the colonies, even our popular brands of cereal. Sugar is not white, it looks like brown beach sand. Dairy still delivered to the door and so forth.
