Why Food Pyramid Failed?

Why USDA's Food Pyramid Was a Disaster that Contributed to the Rise of Obesity!

In May 2011, the USDA released a graphic called “My Plate” to help people choose what foods to eat instead of the “Food Pyramid”. The useless and misleading food pyramid, which has been confusing consumers for over 40 years, has advocated a philosophy of eating more simple grains, grain based products such as white breads, rice, pasta etc. and other less “fatty” foods without differentiating between simple and complex carbohydrates, and not recognizing the importance of adequate protein. As we evolved as Hunters and Gatherers, our bodies are designed to eat a lot of protein along with complex carbohydrates that come from certain low glycemic fruits, vegetables, and nuts.

 Old Failed Food Pyramid

Unfortunately, consuming a lot of the grain based “simple carbohydrates” such as breads, potatoes, sugary beverages, although low in fat, can lead to a phenomenon called “Insulin Resistance”.  Affecting up to one in every 3 Americans, Insulin Resistance is very common and can lead to difficulty losing weight, pre-diabetes, or type II diabetes, heart disease and other long term health problems. While the new My plate tries to address some of these issues, it still does not provide any spesific guidance on the glycemic index of foods which plays an important role in pathogenesis of insulin resistance.

At W8MD, our physicians are well versed with the current concepts in obesity and managing the metabolic syndrome, reduce insulin resistance and help lose weight in a safe, effective way using proven tools such as Very Low Calorie Diets under supervision.
