That works? OMG I never would of guessed. That's even crazier than the Atkins diet . . .I don't believe it!

I guess the old way, in which people would sleep with diet books and rice cakes under their pillows in hopes that they were slimmer in the morning, didn't work, huh?

That sounds too difficult! There must be an easier way! Like eating nothing but grapefruit and cabbage, for example.

Well, it beats official recommendations to eat equally from the four food groups. Sloooowwwwwwly we're making progress. Now to get people to eat this way without being called a food nazi... There's the rub.

Speaking of which, does anybody know where on the internet I can find a vegetarian or vegan food pyramid?



ETA: I found this: http://www.vegetarian-diet.info/vege...od-pyramid.htm



but it sure is heavy on the carbs, isn't it?

Carbs are good for you, if you're eating the right kind. They should make up 60-65% of your diet in calories. Try combining these two:

You can laugh, but you are taking for granted the amount of nutrition education and mis -education many people have.



Something like this, from a very conservative source is needed by many people for them to stop believing in the fad diets.

Regardless of the blatant obviousness...



I just sent that article to a few *larger* members of my family. One of which recently announced he was going to try the South Beach diet.



I noted, in my email, that the new diet plan does not make any recommendation for meat or dairy consumption. Whoo ha!

Actually, it does with dairy but it acknowledges alternatives, in the 5th paragraph to the bottom...



"People are also encouraged to eat, for a 2,000-calorie daily diet, 41/2 cups of fruits and vegetables and three cups of fat-free or lowfat milk or similar milk product."



It would be nice if they specified what alternatives there are to milk- bc I'm sure not everyone knows about soy, rice, almond etc milk.
