The Canada Fat Guide?

Health Canada’s proposed new food guide may contribute to the country’s obesity crisis.

This is the first revision since 1992, and, aparently, it was influenced by the food industry. That’s hardly surprising, Health Canada does no research of its own, it simply rubber-stamps research submitted to it by the industry.

* Choose lower-fat dairy products, leaner meats and food prepared with little or no fat.
* Achieve and maintain a healthy body weight by enjoying regular physical activity and healthy eating.

The screw up is in the order.

If it was [color=blue]Emphasize vegetables and fruit[/color] and control cereals, breads, other grain products would be better.

It’s no mystery. The simple feed lot fattening principle.

Put beef cattle in a yard where they can’t move around much and feed them grains. The cows get fatter then we eat them.

If they were exercising on the open plain and eating their vegie diet they’d be more lean.
