Low-carb advocates launch bid to sway federal diet advice

Quote:
The Low-Carb Action Network — launched on Wednesday by a small group of doctors, researchers and consumers who encourage Americans to cut back on bread, pasta and other carbohydrates — is aiming to influence federal nutrition advice being updated in 2020. The group said scientific research shows the diet can help prevent diseases, particularly Type 2 diabetes, and should be included in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The network does not receive funding from industry and plans to set up a donation page on its website to raise money, a spokesperson said. It is “rapidly recruiting from the low-carb diet influencers and the thousands of people with success stories.”

We tried it last time around and were ignored.
Dietary recommendations still came out based upon epidemiology not experiments

According to the latest graphic, the base of the food pyramid is now fruits and vegetables, with grains moved up a step.



Progress of a sort.

Well, considering that we are supposed to turn these pyramids upside down, now the new pyramid isn’t as good as the old

Even the plate was just a new spin on the old pyramid!!


Sometimes it just takes perserverence to make change.

Recently, a woman in a local Massachusetts town pushed for years to ban plastic bags at the grocery stores and she succeeded! Sometimes it requires years to change ingrained information. But it can be done.
