US Government Dietary Guidelines Inappropriate for Most Americans

When analyzed the actual amount of food in the government dietary patterns, are the same old one “done over”. They all consist of about 55% carbohydrates, 32 to 34% fat, and they recommend most of the same foods.

There are different nutritional needs for children. Women respond differently from Men. The elderly have different nutritional needs. There are genetic factors that influence people’s dietary responses. To continue with the government’s 1-size-fits-all diet is silly, and not good policy.

Also, there is the variation in the American population, which is metabolic health.

If a person is obese or have diabetes, that is a sign of intolerance to certain kinds of carbohydrates. There needs to be included in the guidelines a recommendation for those people too

About 67% of Americans are overweight or obese.  More than 50% are pre-diabetic or diabetic. The government guidelines are not for those people.

The government has published a policy that does not fit the majority of America, and the policy does not say,  ‘Hey America, most of these are not for most of you.'”

Real good personal policy “Eat Real Food”

Perhaps the broadest dietary recommendation for good health is simply to Eat Real Food. Real Food, means food as close to its natural state as possible, eat it and you are likely to be much healthier simply because you will avoid a lot of processed foods.

Science actually confirms that a wide variety of diets can be healthy provided they are based on Real Food, as unadulterated foods contain all the nutrients the body needs, and in far more ideal ratios than nutritional scientists’ guesstimate.

Another requirement is that the American diet be nutritionally sufficient and have the basic nutrients needed for a healthy life.

There are some really good databases out there that can help determine whether or not one is meeting his/hers  nutritional needs.

Also, If you don’t have the vitamins, you cannot absorb the minerals, Vitamins a necessary.

So sounds more complicated than it is, but it does take resolution to do it in this fast, processed food era.

Eat healthy, Be healthy, Live lively
