Traditional Food Pyramid questioned

Traditional Food Pyramid Questioned
At least 3/4 of Americans suffer from carbohydrate toxicity syndrome. This is because the “food pyramid “is upside down. We should be eating more protein in the form of meat, grass fed if available. We should also be eating good quality full fat dairy & avoiding low fat anything. Other good quality fats would be avocados and olive oil.

I attended a virtual conference a few weeks ago put on by an organization that I belong to called “lowcarbUSA.org“.

At least 3/4 of Americans suffer from carbohydrate toxicity syndrome. This is because the “food pyramid “is upside down. We should be eating more protein in the form of meat, grass fed if available. We should also be eating good quality full fat dairy & avoiding low fat anything. Other good quality fats would be avocados and olive oil.

We should be doing our best to eat a very low or no carbohydrate diet. Low carb USA.org recommends that we definitely avoid highly processed carbohydrates that are found in foods like bread, pizza and pasta. These carbohydrates are extremely addictive and are often combined with sugar found in sugary cereals or fats as we find in pizza. They cause a rise in our insulin levels that makes us feel constantly hungry. This is why the average American eats eight times a day.

I suggest watching the free documentary film, “Fat Fiction” and check out Dr. Ken Berry on YouTube. The links are below.
