An improvement over the US Gov version. Not bad for a one-size-fits-all.

Yes I agree. I even got the book a few years ago and put it into practice for individual experience. My poor brain and stomach with all the whole grain wheat, spelt... I guess it was not meant for Hunters ;)

:K)

There is a limit to the beneficence of a one-size-fits-all diet.  This one could kill me.  When will the academics be willing to drop that proveably false assumption?

These graphs are for the general public who tends not to have enough experience with diet to know one way or the other are gullible & will believe almost anything.  Digestive health is not a priority for most of them.

If I hadn't found this diet I would be telling people to base their diets on this. It's a good graph.

Not too bad for "one size fits all."  It emphasizes lots of veggies and has no place for added sugars. It doesn't specify any specific serving sizes, so you can swap around the ratios as works best for you individually.

I could do without the "limit butter" and "limit red meat" parts though.

I’ll just stick with my Swami, I wish everyone could but unfortunately for the general public you need charts like this.

Maybe because less meat is really good for a whole lot of people?  :)

What drives me crazy about these recommendationations is the lack of qualitative differentiation in food types. Raw organic milk compared to factory farmed pasturised stuff or soya fed-intensively reared beef-versus grass fed organic are such completely different products with totally different effects on the body! But of course there are good reasons ($$$$!!)why people aren't educated to understand food in this way  ::)

Of course it's not optimal for everyone (more meat for O's, no grains for me, etc.), but it is definitely the best I've seen so far.

Yes.  When it comes to health, money is always lurking where it shouldn't be ::)

btw.. all about scientifiquely aprooved diets...therapies and other bla's ;D....

29th of Feb. ther's an oncologist in Teutonia who mentioned (and here I agree, not that bad)..... that nothing out of the so called *medicinal boxes* equal of what kind we think or might think about ever willl become scientifique!!!
Why... coz nearly all is basically built up first onto natural treatments... second: allopathic issues but none of them ever will be scientifique-wise proovable...yep it is that easy.... all is built up in a researches but belief-system...... coz none of us will react predictically.. none of us!!! Meant here is even the so called *evidence based medicine* is ::) ??)  if we want apply the correct parameters....
nothing but experienced based medicine.....
Nice to hear something likewise out of the mouth of such a doc... but ok I'm still asking myselve how it came that exactamundo those allow themselfs to ...ok I call it likewise: kill people inclusive with evident allowness of each country??)
(eek)(dizzy)(mad)(shrug)
So far all about agreements and belief-systems.... this belongs also to so called centers like FDA etc..... :X equal in USA or Europe of little Switzerland....

Hey you all... wake up and become more and more aware about your agreements coz if not it might be possible that we all are guilty of... :o :o :-/....ok...ok.. I think,feel and know that you know from what I am talking about !!!!

Btw... I'm still happy with my A2B nonnie diet and being a member of those boards ;) ;D :K)the evidence of following this diet is basically seen in prevention..... ;)(ok)(dance)(smarty)(cool)..........what can I do more especially as being an A2B nonnie??)... Thanx Peter again for your beautiful gift ......(woot)(ok)(clap) :K)
