Someone buy stock in Kleen-X, because I smell a meltdown from The Heartland™.

I picked a copy of their newspaper up last week and it might as well be called Whiner's Weekly.

Actually, for the last few years you were supposed to log onto a web site and get your individualized pyramid based on your age and lifestyle.

I'm a sedentary 40 year old woman. I'm supposed to eat two pieces of whole grain bread, a cheese cube, and some spinach. Per week.

Does the "consumer" actually follow this stuff?

re: #3 freetoken

Does the "consumer" actually follow this stuff?

Is McDonalds still profitable? Then I'd have to say no. I'd rather see the money spent on inspections of food processing facilities instead of re-working the food pyramid posters/logos, but if it makes people eat more plant-based food (not deep fried or smothered in sugar) it would be a good thing.

Few nutritionists will mourn the passing of the pyramid, which, while instantly recognized by millions of American school kids, parents and consumers, was derided by nutritionists as too confusing and deeply flawed because it did not distinguish clearly between healthy foods like whole grains and fish and less healthy choices like white bread and bacon.

...but it's bacon! :P
