My plate doesn’t look like their plate

My Plate


Their Plate


Give it to our good ole government to come up with ways to make us healthy with their new updated recommendations:

Foods to Increase

  • Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
  • Make at least half your grains whole grains.
  • Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk.

Foods to Reduce

  • Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals ― and choose the foods with lower numbers.
  • Drink water instead of sugary drinks.

Though this is a bit of an improvement over the old food pyramid, it still encourages way too many grains which provide very little nutritional value but does include some helpful side effects:

  • Raise in estrogen levels to develop a nice set of man boobs
  • Weight gain (specifically in the belly area)
  • Leaky gut
  • Acid reflux
  • Headaches
  • Spikes in insulin levels with the bonus of being hungry a couple hours after eating
  • Arthritis
  • plus many more

Thanks for the advice USDA but I will save the grains for my food to eat instead and skip the fun side effects mentioned above.
