We spoke a bit about the Canada Food Guide at the Nutrition Seminar last week.¬† And by speak about it I mean trash it.¬† For those of you that weren’t there you missed out on WHY it¬†is total crap and why its a recipe for diabetes and several autoimmune diseases.¬†¬†We also spoke about how it actually came to be.
Most people think it was a group of highly educated doctors and¬†dieticians¬†but unfortunately that notion is completely false.¬† It was actually a bunch of very wealthy lobbyists that convinced the government that they should encourage those¬†”daily servings” of “food groups”…and which one they should pump as the base of the pyramid.¬† Yep, good old grains and cereals are the foundation of a healthy diet, er…I mean wallet.
Take a look at this site: www.eatright.org¬†Go ahead, surf, read and absorb.¬† Sounds pretty good right?¬† Sound, ethical writings that in no way would appear to have influences from¬†big bad¬†corporations that peddle crap food and food products.
