I artikeln finns intervju med Denise Minger författare till Death by Food Pyramid.

Ngra citat:

 

""The pyramid wasn't designed exclusively with human health in mind: it was also shaped by the country's economic state - a casualty of the USDA's catch-22 duty of protecting agricultural interests while also supporting human health."

 

And the problem with that: "The most profitable foods tend to be the worst ones for our bodies." Denise contends that the grain-heavy food pyramid, which recommends six to eleven servings of grains, is an overload of starchy food with no evidence of its merits.

 

Moreover, the restriction on fat implemented in the pyramid is dangerous to our health, says Denise. "USDA nutritionists thought distinguishing between different types of fats - like the monounsaturated fat found in olive oil, the omega-3s in fish, the saturated fat in dairy - would be too confusing for Americans, so they tried to simplify the message by restricting fat categorically. That robbed us of a lot of incredibly nutritious foods and fat-soluble vitamins."

 

If you rely only on the current food pyramid, you are left with "the impression that starchy foods - even heavily processed and refined ones - are a dietary free-for-all, while fat is inherently harmful. It's taken decades to finally start reversing that mentality and dissolve the fat-phobia instilled by the pyramid."

 

So what should you eat for weight loss and health? Get over that fat-phobia, says Denise, and embrace the wonders of healthy fats and protein.

 

Denise recommends a Paleo style diet, which is low in starchy carbs and high in healthy fats. Vegetables, fruits and protein deserve spaces on your plate, she says. If you tolerate dairy, try cultured forms like yogurt and kefir.

Nutritious high fat diet foods include "nuts, avocado, bone marrow, organ meats, fish eggs, oily seafood like salmon, coconut, egg yolks, and dairy from animals eating very good diets," says Denise. And, just as with many other experts, she emphasizes focusing on unprocessed foods.

"The focus on reducing fat in the DGAs implicitly led to higher carbs," said Dr. Walter Willett, chair of the department of nutrition at Harvard’s School of Public Health. "And that became problematic, because the vast majority of carbs in the U.S. are refined and bad for you."

 

Aså.. så tar man bort en sak så ökar en annan.. det tänkte vi visst inte på!

 

Sent skall syndarna vakna!

Tankeförmågan har sannolikt inte stått på topp i relation till vad det borde handla om, dvs intag av näringsrik föda som är en inte oviktig grund (det där var en liten underdrift) för alla levande varelser och deras specifika behov. T.o.m. människan(s)!

Onekligen. Själv är jag rädd för att vi bara nått dithän - för att anamma en Disneyliknelse - att kostdiktokraterna fortfarande ligger och sussar lugnt iförd guldkrona och sugandes på tummen. Självklart med en och annan vaksam orm à la lobbyister/PR-människor vid sängfoten. Den stora frågan är vad som händer om jag och sannolikt en och annan till...redan för full hals och med kompatibel handling ropar "mot Sherwoodskogen!".

 

I vilken form kommer "vakter, de smiter med allt mitt guld!" yttra sig egentligen? Törs man ens utbrista detta mot bakgrund av att det redan gått så långt.

 

Det känns som Sherwoodskogen bara är en "hill sprint" bort och Marion redan har börjat med grillköttet. :)
