I have just heard it through the grapevine (Through my nutrition teacher who is very up to date) That the FDA is changing their guidlines finally for daily allowances. I think they finally realized that they screwed up royally; when graphed the amount of obesity in the US has jumped drastically since the implemented the food guide pyramid and they finally decided to change it. I think the new plan will be out within the next 6 months, or so I have been told.
I cant remember the old caloric %'s from before, but the new ones are if I remember correctly: 15-25%carbs, 40-45% protein, and for fat they didn’t give a reccomendation outright, but they did say that we needs so many grams of omega 3’s and omega 6’s a day, which I can’t remember offhand what they are. But as you all can see this reccomendations are very far off of what alot of our diets are already. Finally looks like they are seeing it our way and realizing their fuck-up. The new food guide pyramid I heard is supposed to be done in like 6 months. Correct me if the %'s are wrong I am writing this off the top of my head.
